Learn to Curl clinic offered in Woodstock

WOODSTOCK — Curling is one of the faster growing sports in the US right now. After the Winter Olympics coverage this past year many wanted to give it a try. Now Central Vermont locals or visitors have that 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. 18 from 7-9 p.m. at the Union Arena in Woodstock, Vt. 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, so interested participants should register in advance by sending an email to uppervalleycurling@gmail.com. The last clinic filled up quickly.
