Just in case you like the cold

As if it weren’t cold enough outside, a bar in Nebraska has decided to ad a Curling Rink and is now hosting tournaments.  I guess it could be no worse than the Ice Bar in Amsterdam (see the pic below for what Simon thought of it).  But still….Curling?  I just now got Steel Tip Darts in CoMO.

Oh well…Cheers.


Nebraska bar builds curling rink

VALENTINE, Neb. (AP) — The Olympic sport of curling is a big hit for a bar in western Nebraska.

Jordan's Bar in Valentine has built its own version of a curling rink and is now hosting leagues and tournaments.
Owner Marty Jordan says they watched the sport during the Olympics, and the bar crowd just loved it, so he decided to give curling a try.

Curling involves two teams of four that take turns pushing a heavy, polished stone across a sheet of ice.

The bar's outdoor curling rink is about half the size of what is seen on the Olympics. And, instead of stones, they use milk jugs filled with a concrete mixture.
