COMING SOON! A THREE PART SERIES: IN SEARCH OF THE “STUFF” OF CURLING

 

COMING SOON!

Part I: Is it all about the soup?” of a three part series, IN SEARCH OF THE “STUFF” OF CURLING

In this three-part series we take an excursion back to the mid-20th century small town of Altamont, Manitoba; we search for that illusive “stuff” of curling; we renew acquaintances with Altamont residents from past posts and meet new ones who quickly become fast friends; we meet a new Parkinson’s hero; we learn something about the human capacity to overcome adversity, and the price some may pay to avoid it. Learn the difference between the “Old Buffalo” and the “Old Goat.”

We will have a rare insider’s perspective of an epic confrontation at the Altamont Curling Club as told to me by three guys named Scotty, Buster and Phil, who heard it from another guy named Dick. Prepare to read the play-by-play account of this fierce battle on the curling ice, a curling skills match that shapes destiny. Find out how much an 8 – ender (a perfect end) is worth. And find out what a “Dunbar” and  a “double Gordon” are anyway.
