In early February, one-hour Learn2Curl classes were hosted at the Park at Wrigley for six nights. Instructors from Chicago Curling Club, Exmoor Country Club, and Windy City Curling taught new curlers from 3-7 pm and played a short exhibition game on the outdoor ice from 8-9 pm. As part of the event, instructors joined the learn2curl participants at Budweiser Brickhouse Tavern where they shared a beverage and watching Team USA in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
The Learn2Curls were an amazing opportunity for local curling clubs to collaborate and share their passion for the underappreciated Winter Olympic Sport. Instructors taught etiquette, rules, scoring, delivery, and sweeping. While the ice may have been a little frosty on some evenings, the event was a wonderful way for children, couples, families, and friends to spent their evening in Chicago.
Thanks to all those who volunteered!
