SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. - It's been an official Winter Olympic sport since 1998, and it's attracted plenty of attention since then because of how unique it is. But curling has been around a lot longer than that, and it's gained a loyal following right here in Metro Atlanta.
The Atlanta Curling Club was founded back in 2010, with the goal of promoting the sport in the south and affording those interested a chance to compete at the national level. Over the past few years, the Atlanta Curling Club has taught more than a thousand Atlantans how to curl -- and right now, many are taking part in the 2016 Spring League. In case you've never played, the Club does offer a "Learn To Curl" class -- which teaches the basics of this sport (which involves sliding "stones" over ice toward a target).
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning with members of the Atlanta Curling Club at Center Ice Arena in Sandy Springs, and got a chance to see if he's got any natural talent for this unusual (and social) sport.
