To help all Scandinavians, and others, that are suffering from Olympics withdrawal, the YSC has organized a fun filled afternoon at the Oakland Ice Center. On Saturday March 3rd, we have booked 4 curling sheets and will be get an introductory class to curling. Check out the Facebook event.
After mastering the art of curling, those so inclined can go out and explore the night life of Oakland.
What should you bring? Norwegian Curling Pants, but if you don’t have any of those, we recommend wearing loose fitting pants (sweats or track pants), warm clothes and sneakers. Lots of folks enjoy having a hat and gloves, as well. Jeans are strongly discouraged.
What will you do?
– Get an overview of the game and on-ice safety
– Learn delivery basics (how to throw the stone)
– Learn sweeping
– Play a mini-game
The class starts at 4:45 sharp, so plan on arriving at 4:30
