Want to see what a “Learn to Curl” event looks like? Here’s a great video of our friends up at the Green Mountain Curling Club in Vermont holding a “Learn To Curl” event – check it out and see how people get started:
Having been involved in the early days of the GMCC when I lived in Burlington, it’s great to see familiar faces and to see that they are doing well! I curled many a Friday night at the rink shown in the video that’s located just 45 mins north of Burlington in Bedford, Quebec.
If YOU would like to try out curling, our friends down at the Petersham Curling Club about 45 mins south of Keene in Petersham, MA, are holding 3 curling open house events on February 8, February 16 and February 20. They will be a GREAT opportunity to try out curling!
And if you’d like to see curling brought to the Keene region, please help us out and sign up to help us make that happen!
We have an amazing opportunity this weekend (Jan 17-19) to watch some of the best curling teams in the world competing against each other in the “Continental Cup” in Las Vegas. All of it will be streamed LIVE across the Internet at:
The Continental Cup is a unique format that pits 6 US and Canadian teams in “Team North America” against 6 teams in “Team World” from Scotland, Sweden, Japan and Norway. In contrast to most other curling events that are a series of regular team games, the Continental Cup has team games, singles games, mixed doubles games and ‘skins’ games. The scoring is explained on the event web site.
The remaining games that will be live streamed are (all times US Eastern):
Friday 10 PM – Team
Saturday 12 PM – Mixed Doubles
Saturday 4:30 PM – Team
Saturday 9:30 PM – Team
Sunday 4 PM – Skins
Sunday 9 PM – Skins
According to the US Curling Association web site, NBC Sports Network will also televise two of the Saturday games… although they will be broadcast on Sunday.
The World Curling TV stream on YouTube will be streaming live, of course, and will probably be the best place to see all the action. It should be some outstanding curling so do check it out!
