A mix of seasoned and novice curling enthusiasts came out in mid-October to kick off the 2016-2017 curling season, with a little pre-season practice and instruction time.
Despite their shaky start on the ice, the new curlers were soon throwing rocks and sweeping like experts, peppering their dialogue with terms such as “slipper”, “gripper”, “turn” and “skip”. Experienced curlers got a chance both to hone their skills and give the beginners some valuable pointers.
After some practice and team-building, corporate curling league games at the Collingwood Curling Club started on October 26th. Good luck and have fun Team Crozier!
