Wendy Prinse of the Curl BC “Rocks and Rings” program gave all Grade 1 to 4 classes at Coquihalla Elementary School a half-hour session of curling instruction and practice last Thursday.

Hope Curling Club iceman, Roman Petryk, has since offered to have classes come to the local rink for an on-ice experience.
