While LRCA members couldn’t find their way to the Olympics, they were well represented there anyway. Josh Spaulding, sports editor for Salmon Press, publisher of the Granite State News, Carroll County Independent, Alton Baysider, Gilford Steamer, and other newspapers in the Lakes Region, doffed an LRCA baseball cap in a visit to the Gangneung Curling Centre, site of the sports matches. Josh says it was the first venue he visited in his stay at the Olympics.

LRCA curlers also got a bit more exposure on Feb. 13 when the Concord Monitor published a front-page article highlighting the local organization and giving voice to the enthusiasm of its members for their sport. The article is well illustrated by local curlers doing their best imitation of Olympic competition.
