Friday Favorite: Curling

November 22nd, 2013

This Friday Favorite is for Mr Chiots. Many years ago he started watching curling during the winter Olympics, then he was hooked. He wanted so badly to learn how to play, but the only club near us in Ohio was over an hour and a half away. Lucky for us, the only curling club in Maine is only about 20 minutes from our house. Last year we went to a Learn to Curl event at the club and Mr Chiots couldn’t wait to sign up for leagues.

This year he’s curling two nights a week and loving it. I haven’t been able to get to one of his matches yet since it’s been a bit busy around here, once things settle down in December I will. One thing is for sure, Mr Chiots is in seventh heaven!

Is there any strange sport you’ve always wanted to try your hand at?
