Here is a YouTube video explaining the basic rules of mixed doubles curling. You will note they play 8 end games where we will be playing 6 end games. Here is the video link: https://youtu.be/AahTjqTjtfc
Our own Team Grady competed this past weekend Mar. 6-8 in Truro in the under 18 provincials.
The girls played against Team MacNutt from the Truro CC on Friday evening at 9pm and Team Batherson on Saturday evening at 8pm. The girls lost both games but were excited to get a chance to curl against some of the best teams in the province in a Provincial Championship, using the provincial curling stones. There was lots of curl in the ice and the girls made some fantastic shots, highlighted by an awesome double in the Friday night game, made by Hanna Manthorne. The girls have shown incredible improvement in their game this year and are looking forward to being even more competitive next year! Much thanks to the Chedabucto Curling Club and all of our sponsors for your continued support!

Students from Guysborough’s Chedabucto Education Centre & Guysborough Academy took their Physics 12 class into the Chedabucto Curling Club. One of the concepts within their academic studies is to investigate two-dimensional momentum in order to analyse a collision at angles and then to predict the resulting movement of that contact.
As stated by one of their instructors, Mr. Michael Wilson, “When these problems are studied they are often examined from a friction-less environment. These types of questions absolutely are representative of curling as we can look at how the velocity of the rock and the angle of impact affects the velocities and angles of the two rocks after a collision and it is on ice.”
Applying two-dimensional momentum to curling enables its participants to conceptualize the outcomes of two rocks colliding and how that contact could factor into the strategy of the match and determine its outcome.
