Learning How To Curl With The Albany Curling Club
It's Winter Olympics season, which means the inevitable- hearing all kinds of people talk about how they could be Olympians in curling. I have to admit, I'm totally guilty of saying "that doesn't look hard," and I also may be a little bit biased with my history as an alpine ski racer. So when I was offered a chance to tag along with Brian and Chrissy of WGNA for a private curling lesson with the Albany Curling Club, I couldn't resist! First of all, I learned what a wonderful venue the Albany Curling Club is- I had no idea it even existed prior to this. Secondly, I learned about the sport of curling. That means the technique, the difficulty, and the ins-and-outs. Curling is a heck of a lot harder than I had imagined. After our lesson, I admittedly took back all of the times I said "that doesn't look hard" and left with a big smile on my face and a new respect for the sport.
