Coeur d'Alene Curlers Want You

There is good news if the recent 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics got anyone pumped to try curling. On Wednesday, the Coeur d'Alene Curling Club is offering up its Learn to Curl event at the Frontier Ice Arena. "Once you figure out how to throw the stone, what gets people hooked is the strategy," said Corey Gorham, one of the club founders and a Rathdrum resident. "I've heard it called 'chess on ice.'"  Learn to Curl is free and open to the public from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Veteran curlers will be on hand to teach anyone who is eager to learn techniques and strategy. "We're trying to drum up some interest in the sport," Gorham said. The club wants to continue growing, he said. The club had 12 teams last season, and with the second season starting March 17 there are 16 formed and ready to compete, with four to six players on each, he said/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Do you have what it takes to be a curler?
