BMTS Austria successful in curling

A small team from the BMTS St. Michael plant has been training curling for more than three years. Once a week, every Wednesday at 7pm, the 8-member team meets at the ice rink of the ERK Kühnsdorf. That the joint training is worthwhile, the BMTS team has already been able to prove many successful tournaments. Last year, the 2018 section achieved a very good third and fourth place in the elimination of the "Arbeiterkammer-Betriebsmeisterschaften" in various competition groups and 2019 started no less successful for the curling team. So the group achieved in the finals of the AK Championship 2018 a superior 4th place - the best placement of the BMTS team in such a tournament so far. In addition, the BMTS riflemen attracted the attention of the regional media through their participation in the Kärntner Stock tournament. During the preliminary round, the media partner "Woche" reported on our ambitious curling group and interviewed team leader Michael Hobel on the team's winning concept, which emphasized that it's not just about a top ranking in tournaments but, above all, fun at the sport and the community.

BMTS congratulates the successful shooter and wishes further success and fun with the common curling. If you are interested in this sport, or would like to train for a test, you are welcome to contact section head Michael Hobel from the St. Michael plant.
