More than 50 young students from elementary schools around Cranbrook hit the ice at the Cranbrook Curling Club Monday for introductory curling lessons, led by Coach Leslie Weaver and assisted by adult volunteers. Day 1 featured getting comfortable with the slider on the ice, and getting a feel for sliding out of the hack, as well as basic terminology. The sessions run Mondays over the next few weeks, and the city-wide elementary school activity was spearheaded by Steve Lightfoot, Principal of Amy Woodland School.
