Survey about Adaptive Curling

My name is Scott Piroth, and I am a Political Science professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.

I am also a long-time curler and a member of the Bowling Green Curling Club.

I am contacting you because I am conducting a study of members of curling clubs in Canada and the United States. The focus of the study is adaptive curlers – primarily those who use delivery sticks but also wheelchair curlers and others requiring accommodations, whether or not they use delivery sticks. This is my second (and final) mailing. If you have already completed the survey, please disregard this message.

The survey is primarily for members of curling clubs who use adaptive deliveries. If you decide to participate, the survey does not have to go exclusively to adaptive curlers. The survey will ask participants how they deliver rocks and show the appropriate questions based upon the response this question.

This survey should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete. Responses will be anonymous. Participants will not be asked to provide any identifying information, and I will not be able to track the identity of participants. The survey includes questions about member’s curling experience, the club itself, how curlers view adaptive curling in the context of the larger curling community, and some basic demographic questions.

I am requesting that you forward the information above along with this link to the survey https://bgsu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0Hz92o5hbYCGUDQ to members of the Tam Heather Curling Club.

Please note that only members of curling clubs who are 18 years of age or older should respond to the survey. If you need more information about this research, please contact Dr. Scott Piroth at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (419) 372-7268.

Club Information

Tam Heather, or the “Tam” as we call it, is an active friendly club located in the Morningside and 401 community of Scarborough. Tam Heather opened in 1973 as a curling club with eight sheets of ice, then two years later in 1975, the club expanded by adding five tennis courts, three of which were covered in the winter with a bubble. Thirty four years later, in 2009, a four court year-round covered structure was built.
