New curling rink in Grand-Mère opens

Rene Fugere at Grand-Mere curling rink.JPGFor the past seven years, curlers in Grand-Mere, a town near Shawinigan, haven't had a place to throw a stone.

Their curling club burned down in 2007.  But now, a brand-new state-of-the-art rink has opened its doors.

It's only been open a few months but it already has more members than the old club did.
