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.
