Are you a fan of the curling competition in the Winter Olympics? Have you ever wanted to learn how to curl? The Atlanta Curling Club will give locals a primer on the sport during a special event slated for Saturday, December 22nd on the ice at the Forum River Center in downtown Rome. The Rome Curling Experience will benefit the Ruth and Naomi Project of the William S. Davies Homeless Shelter.
Devon Smyth, Executive Director of the Davies Homeless Shelter, says that she and her family have already signed up for the course, which is scheduled to be taught from 10 am until noon. The cost is $10 per person.
The Rome Curling Experience was made possible (in part) by board member Dr. Dixon Freeman of Rome, who curls with the Atlanta Curling Club, attests Smyth.
According to Wikipedia, curling is a sport in which the players slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target area that is segmented into four concentric circles.
The Ruth and Naomi Project, a homeless shelter for women and children, is anticipated to open in January. A ribbon cutting and open house will be held to commemorate the opening, enthuses Smyth.
Shelter updates will be posted on social media. Additional details about the Rome Curling Experience are available on the event Facebook page.
