The Grand National Curling Club, also known as the GNCC, is the union of curling clubs in New England and the Mid-Atlantic of the United States. It was established in 1867. In recent years, the GNCC's territory has expanded to include clubs in the Southeast (Specifically, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia.)
