Paradise Comes to Vacaville

Posted by Casey on September 2, 2007

My life is now complete. I’ve witnessed the great sport of curling in person.


Vacaville, California’s curling club–yes, you read that right–the Wine Country Curling Club is hosting a Bonspiel. That’s a German-looking Scottish word meaning curling tournament.

I spent most of today out of the 100 degree weather covering the tournament. Last weekend was the first time I’d ever stepped onto a golf course, today was the first time I’d ever stepped foot on indoor ice. Ice rinks are, like, cold. Go figure.


Teams from all over the US and Canada, including the Men’s US National team, are here.


The finals are tomorrow morning. Bagpipes, ceremony, the whole enchilada. Too cool . . . really no pun intended.

    Cool…and I mean “cool”. It was a fascinating experience. Just perfect for these long hot summer days…

    What’s even cooler — no pun intended — is the local curling club will show people how to curl. Even people with a bum knee like me.
