NBC reporter Monte Francis tries curling while covering an SFBACC Olympic learn-to-curl.
Curling has been a cult classic at the winter Olympics since it was re-introduced in the '80s and '90s. And, it makes a great, off-beat news story!
The San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club has existed since 1958, but struggled for members from the '70s till 2006, when it was revived by an influx of new curlers who discovered the sport during the Olympics. We have about 100 members, including some who compete (and have medaled) at the following events: 2009 Olympic Trials; US National Championships, Deaf World Championships, US Mixed National Championships, US Club National Championships and the Canadian National Championships. A wheelchair curler from our sister club in Vacaville will be competing in the 2010 Paralympic Games.
We will be holding a number of learn-to-curl sessions and regular league nights leading up to and during the Vancouver 2010 games. For details, see our special Olympic events section.
