Prior curling experience is not a priority since a good number of us use the stick to deliver the rock so the game gets to be a lot like shuffle board and can be enjoyed by all of us regardless of condition etc. Only requirement is that you wear either runners or slip on soft toe rubbers so you have good traction on the ice with both feet.
Its a great chance to get to know your Gyro friends from our own club plus all the other clubs within District VIII, even Wallace.
