Meghan Kavanaugh, a columnist from the Improper Bostonian attended Lake Morey Resort’s Ice Sports University weekend and wrote a feature article on her guest experience. She had a great review and singled out the Learn to Curl sessions (hosted by yours truly) as “taking the gold in intrigue level”. Check out her article from the Improper Bostonian. Great job Woodstock members!
Club members braved the windchill for some rousing games and getting some practice in before heading the VERspiel (hosted by Rutland Rocks Curling Club) this Sunday February 22.
