On a Sunday afternoon, January 13, 1935, near the end of the Great Depression, the Bemidji Curling Club was organized at a meeting at the Tourist Information Building. Today, the walls of this Club are lined with more than 100 banners signifying years of state and national championships, and Bemidji is nationally recognized as "The Curling Capital of the USA." The distinction comes from the Club's long line of curling champions, including the men and women representing the United States in the 2005 World Curling Championship and the 2006 Winter Olympics in which half of the ten member team called Bemidji home. The public is welcome to stop by the Bemidji Curling Club to watch all the action as the Club hosts many state and national championship tournaments, with bonspiels and tournament play often held on weekends, and club play during the week. The Club features a general viewing area on the first floor and another viewing area upstairs with a bar.
