The tradition of ice curling
The pride of the ice curlers
A tremendous sense of enjoyment is not based solely on taking part in a regional or state championship, but far more important is the endless pride when achieving a good shot on the perfectly flat ice curling rinks. Besides the official clubs who take things much more seriously than the hobbyists and are always striving for vistory, there are teams who have been formed more by coincidence. They too enjoy this trend sport in a much more amateur fashion, throwing their sticks hundreds of times whilst aiming them between two wooden stumps.
The ice curling variants
Those who can say they truly know something about ice curling can be critical of the state of the alley, and this might lead to the occasional quarrel! Over the last few years many new variations on this conventional sport have been developed. To date these include ice curling with feasts of roast, grilled sausage and salted and smoked meats! Inter club, one school year group against another, young against old – the combinations and possibilities are endless.
The ice curling captains
The referees on the ice curling alleys are the „Moar“ – the captains of each of the two teams. They bring the teams to order and are constantly brandishing around with a measuring stick, their hats or one of the braided cords of their traditional hats to measure which stick is closest. They can be heard calling out instructions for the next perfect shot, often in an interesting „secret“ language. Throughout the winter months, most people will take part in an ice curling competition, and the ladies take impeccable pride in their performance too.
Guests are always welcome to join in anice curling competition for a small fee.
