Curling Club Offers Clinic
With the Winter Olympics underway, many people are watching the fast-growing sport of curling. While it is easy to understand curling, to truly appreciate the game you have to experience it. The Upper Valley Curling Club will hold a Learn to Curl Clinic at the Barwood Arena, 45 Highland Avenue, White River Junction, on Saturday, February 24, from 5:45 to 8 p.m. Experienced curlers will teach the basic elements of the game and students will get to practice on the ice, and if there’s time, get to play a short game. The club will provide all equipment; wear warm clothes and bring shoes with non-skid soles. Clinic cost is $25 per person for two hours of instruction and fun. For more information about the clinic, please email [email protected]
