The Good News from small-town Saskatchewan curling rinks

Blue Sky

On this Good News Friday -- We salute the volunteers who make the small-town curling rinks vibrant community hubs. You heard about Helen Garinger, the 96-year-old who just curled in the White Fox Bonspiel. We heard about the Hoag family in Gravelbourg who have raised two curlers who are giving back to their town and making a splash on the national scene. We took you to Manitou Beach to find out how they were able to make a crokicurl rink on the cheap, using some pretty great innovation. You heard about volunteers in Makwa who breathed new life into the curling rink after it sat vacant for 10 years. We heard about Whitewood, the smallest town in Saskatchewan to put on the Tankard - provincial men's championship. And last but not least, we talked to a couple of unsung heroes in the curling world; the ice makers in Carnduff, who mix art and science to bring perfect conditions for curlers.
