Sunday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. — One of the faster growing sports in the U.S. right now is the sport of curling. Many followed the exciting matches on during this past year’s Winter Olympics. Maybe you thought about giving it a try yourself? Well, now is your chance. There are many local people in the Upper Valley who curl regularly and they want to show you how much fun it is to play the game.
The Woodstock Curling Club is offering a “Learn to Curl” clinic on Sunday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 p.m. at the Union Arena in Woodstock. Registration is at 6:45 p.m. The clinic costs $20 per person and is open to anyone interested in learning the sport.
The club will provide all of the equipment needed to curl; you just have to wear warm clothing and 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 and lots of fun.
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.
