Utica Curling Club Open House

By Skye Rohde

Whitesboro, NY – It's not often that throwing rocks at a house is sanctioned...but it's actually the goal of curling. Of course, "throwing" a curling stone means sliding it along 136 feet of ice toward a bullseye called the "house." This Scottish game has been big in Canada for years and is a tradition in New York's Mohawk Valley. Members of the Utica Curling Club spent much of last week introducing it to new players. As WRVO's Skye Rohde reports, it has a lot to offer.
