Winter Carnival will spotlight curling on March 4

Zeke Bly of On the Rocks and Paul Arruda of Golf Nuts jockey for position as a stone crosses the house early in their match. In the background, Brian Gately of Curlin’ Curlers awaits the next play.

Visitors to the Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation Department’s annual Winter Carnival on Saturday, March 4, will have an opportunity to try their hand at curling, among other activities.

Starting at noon on that day, the Lakes Region Curling Association will open Pop Whalen Ice Arena to area residents who want to learn more about this olympic sport and try their hand at “throwing” a few stones.

There is no charge, and pre-registration is not required. Participants must be 14 years of age or older and will be asked to sign a waiver covering their on-ice activities. Anyone wishing to participate in the curling event is asked to bring a pair of athletic shoes with clean soles in order to avoid bringing grit onto the ice.
