Curling with TCSC

TCSC Curling

TSCS Curling night. Great fun. We had a 30 min class then some lessons on the ice. Then we played a few sides and had dinner and drinks in the attached pub.

Curling is a sport invented in Medieval Scotland where stones are slid across the ice towards a target area which is separated into 4 concentric circles. Two sweepers influence the path of the stone by changing the state of the ice in front of it with brooms. (wiki- pedia)
