Coming Up: Curling lessons for FREE

With the Olympics starting tonight, it would be fun to try your own Olympic sports this weekend.

The Oakland Ice Center is hosting a free Learn-to-Curl event for families on Sunday, February 14th from 10:45 a.m. -12:45 p.m. Only 20 people are allowed at the lesson, so if you can go, sign up ASAP (below).

If you haven't seen curling, you're in for a treat. You push a 42 pound stone along the ice, sweeping the ice in front of it as you move it toward the target. This class is aimed at kids age 9 and up.

Learn-to-Curl clinics are regularly hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club, but this will be smaller to help the kids learn, and is the only free class hosted in Oakland. (Parents wanting to try one that night can go from 9:15-11:30 p.m. the previous night - 2/13/10 - cost is $15/person)

For other curling clinics, check out this link for the Learn-to-Curl classes. They run $15/person.
