Chaska City Hall Bulletin

Volume 9, Issue 1, January 7, 2016


Chaska Curling Center Manager, Jeff Isaacson's 2014 USA Olympic teammates John Shuster and John Landsteiner stopped by the Chaska Curling Center on Sunday, January 3rd to take a look at Minnesota's newest curling facility. The three of them, shown in the  photo below, posed in front of their own mural that's a part of the curling wall in the Welcome Hall. The fourth member of the 2014 Olympic Team is Jared Zezel, who stopped by on Monday to practice before heading off to Scotland to compete. 

All of the men were very impressed with the facility and had nothing but compliments on the design of the building. They indicated they've heard nothing but great things about the quality of the ice and the service and food in the Crooked Pint from the curling world.
The other picture is of the Switzerland Men's Curling who were in the area to compete in a national tournament in Blaine. They too were very complimentary of the building and of the ice quality while stopping in Chaska to practice for their upcoming event.
The Big Speil is coming to Chaska, St. Paul and Blaine! Starting Thursday, January 14th there will be curling competition at the Chaska Curling Center at 5:30 and 8:00 pm;  Friday at 9 am, noon, 4 pm, and 8 pm;  and Saturday at 8 am, 6 pm, and 8:30 pm. A curling party will be held in the event center from noon to 5 pm on Saturday. Stop by and join in the fun in downtown Chaska!
League curling started on Sunday afternoon at the Chaska Curling Center and continues each week night at 6 and 8:15 pm.  There are great viewing opportunities from the Crooked Pint Bar and Restaurant! 
The Crooked Pint continues to do amazing business and is bringing many visitors and guests into downtown Chaska.

Archaeologist Kent Bakken (pictured) will discuss the challenges of the excavations and the hidden landscape that was discovered during the building of the new Highway 101 bridge south of Co Rd 61 from Chaska to Shakopee.

He will explain the findings from the work and how those findings help us better understand the long history of the Minnesota River Valley, the Upper Midwest, and the Great Plains.  Bakken will also preview the results of more recent excavations in and near the valley, and how these relate to the Highway 101 and Flying Cloud Project.
