Here’s an excerpt from today’s story:

Kimball Blanchard curls in Cornwall and has been since the 1990s. He enjoys the friendships.

“I always enjoy the game, but probably with the group out in Cornwall, you enjoy primarily the people, and the game secondary, and you can get good exercise out of it as well.”

He said it keeps people active and involved.

“It’s just a wonderful, social activity. People are here to enjoy themselves and even though we’re older, we still have that little bit of competitive spirit too.”
