House Call: Curling is the Real Social Network

Whether you’ve been on the ice for weeks, you’re lacing up your shoes for the first time this week, or you still have a little time to go before you get your first game of the season in, let’s take some time to consider the many benefits of social networking.

 
House Call: Ice Legs

Listen up wobblers and weeblers! Nobody wants to see you fall, so take a few pieces of advice from someone who calls too many ambulances at this time of year.

 

Skips are a rare breed. Not because a skip needs to be the best player on the team, you don’t, but because skipping can be lonely and stressful. You are alone at the far end with no company but the opposition.

 

The third is the heart of every team. The go-between the skip and the front end. A jack of all trades; the third needs to throw hits and draws with ease, understand the ice

 

On many teams the second is the secret weapon. Take Jill Officer (team Jennifer Jones) for instance, without her amazing takeouts her team would be in big trouble. While the lead sets up the end the second is there to keep things on track and sometimes to put a derailed train back on the tracks!
