Learn the sport of curling

Saturday, Feb. 3, 5:45 p.m.—WHITE RIVER JUNCTION— The Winter Olympics begin on Feb. 8, and there will be plenty of curling action to watch on TV. Experience the sport firsthand and appreciate it more when watching! The Upper Valley Curling Club will host a Learn to Curl Clinic on Saturday, Feb. 3, 5-8 p.m. at the Barwood Arena in White River Junction. The club invites anyone age 12 or older to become familiar with the action and the terminology by taking this class, which is designed for those who have never before tried the sport.

Bring warm clothes and shoes with non-skid soles. The club will provide all equipment. The class begins with off-ice instruction, then moves into the arena for hands on practice and, time permitting, will allow for a short game. Cost is $25 per person.

The Upper Valley Curling Club plays weekly at the Barwood Arena, located behind the high school at 45 Highland Ave. in White River Junction. For more information, visit
