Curling. Relatively simple in rules and equipment, lacking in balls, and the game ends at the bar toasting the losers with a drink – it’s a sport we can get behind.
When we were doing our usual “whatcha gonna wear?” back and forth, I asked Lora if she thought I should bring my figure skates or ice hockey skates (I have both gathering dust in my cupboard) – THAT is how clueless I was about curling. Crazy, being that I’m Scottish and curling was invented by my people in medieval times. What can I say, I never paid close attention. I always thought it was a strange sport that combined ice and housework.
When Ted Stone (obviously destined to be a curler) invited us to the Norfolk Curling Club we were eager to find out what curling really entails.
