Rolling Stones Third Meeting

Submitted by Juliana Willemsma
Essex 4-H - 4-H Curling Club
(Posted February 28, 2012)

The Members of the "Rolling Stones" 4-H Curling Club held their third meeting on February 26th at the Kingsville Curling Club. Hanna opened the meeting and the members recited the 4-H pledge. Then the Members went out onto the ice. The Members practiced sliding and throwing rocks.

The Members then went upstairs and warmed up with a cup of hot chocolate. Juliana gave the secretary's report. Miss Glenda and Nic gave the Members a true or false curling quiz. The Members got most of the questions right.

Back on the ice the Members learned to curl with a stick. The stick is used by Members who have back or knee problems and can't bend or slide. The Members learned about the 2 measuring sticks. One is used to measure if a rock is in or out of the outer ring. The other instrument measures to see which rock is closer if you can't tell by looking at it.

Andrew and Nic showed the members the equipment used to care for the ice. They explained what each item was used for and the order they were used in. They demonstrated how they worked. Finally Andrew explained what the skip's calls mean.

The Members broke into groups of two and played a 4 end mini game. Mini games help develop strategy. After the game the Members did a draw to the button to see who could get their rock the closest to the button. The Members enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies. Emma adjourned the meeting at 4:10pm. The next meeting will be held on March 11th.
