Curlers ‘rock’ solid at tourney

Many people consider kilts to be Scotland’s greatest contribution to the world. These people have obviously not heard of curling, a sport played on pebbled ice with 30-40 pound rocks. It has elements of bocce ball and shuffleboard, the finesse of golf, and the social characteristics of bowling. Curling made its North American debut in Canada, but is starting to gain ground in the United States. Curling is supported by St. Olaf, but is not an official sport. Most people don’t even know that it exists, but it is open to everyone, men and women. The season lasts from mid-November to late February, and every week during their season the team travels to St. Paul to practice.
