THE HISTORY OF CAMBRIGE CURLING:
—“How it all started
The Cambridge Gateway Curling Club (CCC) was conceived by Tom Satrom, a Cambridge resident.

Satrom grew up curling in his home state of North Dakota, and wanted to carry on the curling tradition when he settled in Cambridge during the early 70s.

Led by Satrom, the founding CCC members Gary Anderson, Dave Bennett, Dr. Odell Johnson, Bob Manke and Craig Moline worked hard to start the club. They secured a loan, found a location for the ice, and spread the word about a sport that was new to the area.

Their persistence paid off and on Nov. 20, 1974, the official bylaws were signed and the GATEWAY CCC came to be.
Satrom’s curling career reached far beyond Cambridge, as he went on to be the Team Leader of the United States Olympic Curling Team in the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France and in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.
He was he was inducted into the U.S. Curling Hall of Fame in 1999.
