A group of curlers in North Vancouver are being asked to get more members 4:28

The sport of curling is on thin ice at the North Shore Winter Club, a private members-only recreation centre in North Vancouver.

Non-members have been allowed to curl at the facility's rink since the late 1990s, when the North Vancouver Curling Club lost its home and the North Shore Winter Club let the curlers onto its rink.

Do you know of a situation that's inspiring, outrageous, hilarious, or even ridiculous?
