GALESVILLE, Wis. (WKBT) - One local group is trying to teach the community about the sport of curling. The Centerville Curling club held a "Learn to Curl" party Saturday to teach participants the history and basics of the sport.
Instructors demonstrated how to slide, throw rocks, sweep, and general strategy of curling. The event was open to the public from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Saturday. On top of learning the basics of curling, attendants of the event could participate in contests and win prizes.
Coordinators of the event say curling is fun for the whole family.
"It's a family sport and it's a family tradition. I've curled with everyone in my family. We've played in Bonspiel's or tournaments together. It's really a morally based sport. In the spirit of curling we shake hands before the game. We shake hands after the game. And there is no referee, you are the referee when you play," said Centerville Curling Club member Kevin Deeren.
