What is Curling
Curling is a wintertime sport, it can be a family function or for couples during which players slide stones across a sheet of ice in the direction of a target area which is segmented into 4 rings.
I can remember as a kid making rocks from trees or used Javex bottles and playing on the local pond. Dad could not understand why I needed red paint for the lines and circles.
Here at the resort we have an outdoor shuffleboard which is closely related to curling but not played in the wintertime.
Today’s Curling is two teams, each consisting of four players, they take turns sliding polished granite stones or rocks across the ice curling sheet in the direction of the house, a round target marked on the ice.
Each team has eight stones.
The purpose is to accumulate the highest score for a game.
Points are scored for the stones resting closest to the center of the house on the conclusion of each end, which is finished after both teams have thrown all of their stones or rocks.
A game may consist of 10 or 8 ends.
Now back in my days as a kid on the pond it was to smash the other guys curling rocks (Javex bottles) out of the play area where as today there is a great deal of strategy and teamwork goes into choosing the ideal path and placement of a stone for each end.
