Sunday, June 21 at 4:30 p.m. — WOODSTOCK — Do you recall watching the Winter Olympics last year? Did you watch the curling competitions and think, “I wish that I could do that!” The time to check out the sport of curling is now. The Woodstock Curling Club is offering a Learn to Curl clinic on Sunday, June 21 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Union Arena in Woodstock. There are many people in the Upper Valley who curl regularly and they want to show you how much fun it is to play the game.
The clinic costs $20 per person and is open to anyone interested in learning the sport. The club will provide all of the equipment; you just have to wear warm clothing and bring shoes with non-skid soles.
Participants will start with an off-ice introduction to the concepts and rules of the game and then move onto the ice for hands-on instruction. If there’s time, a game will be played.
Space is limited. Interested participants must register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The last Learn to Curl clinic filled up very quickly.
Union Arena is located on the grounds of the Woodstock Union High School on Route 4 just 1.5 miles west of the Woodstock Village. For more info, visit www.uppervalleycurling.org.
