Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THIS?


The San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club (SFBACC) is building the first dedicated curling facility in California, set to open in Oakland in2020! Historically, curling clubs have sold advertising space in their ice, but why let businesses have all the fun? We're opening up space in our ice to everyone as part of our fundraising efforts!




DOES IT HAVE TO BE MY FACE?


Nope. In addition to your own face, you could also put your pet's face, child's face, or even your mom's face (with her permission, of course) in our ice. You're also welcome to put a logo, personal artwork, or a written message in our ice. Have other ideas? We'll consider it! All submissions are subject to approval by SFBACC. Please keep it PG. We retain the right to reject a submission for any reason or no reason at all.




CAN I PURCHASE MORE THAN ONE SPACE?


You can! If you'd like to share something larger than would fit in a 1' x 1' space, you can purchase additional ajacent spaces.




HOW LONG WILL MY FACE BE IN THE ICE?


Our ice will be refreshed annually at the beginning of each curling season at which time the in-ice decals are removed. Our season runs September 1 through July 31 of the following year. Because we'll be opening the new facility mid-season, your face will remain in the ice until it is refreshed at the start of the 2022 season. If this effort is successful, we may extend the offer through following seasons.




I DON'T WANT MY FACE IN YOUR ICE. CAN I JUST GIVE YOU MONEY?


You sure can! The San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is a 510(c)(3) non-profit. You can make a tax-deductible donation from www.dedicatedice.com/donate.




IS THIS A JOKE?


It isn't! We'll legitimately have your face (or logo, or whatever) digitally printed on vinyl mesh fabric and set into our ice. This is the same material that is used for in-ice logos in ice arenas across the world.
