On February 8th-9th, curlers from Colgate University, Hamilton College, Binghamton University, and Syracuse University will host a college tournament (known as a bonspiel) at the Utica Curling Club. Curlers from the host clubs, Bowling Green State University, MIT, RIT, RPI, University of Pennsylvania, and Villanova University will play for the top spots in six events.
Curling is a fascinating sport that emphasizes team communication, good sportsmanship, mental challenge, as well as finesse and physical ability (Sweepers will travel 2 miles up and down the ice in a typical game, half of that vigorously sweeping the path of the stone.)
The event is open to the public to view. Game times: Feb 8th at 9:30 pm, Feb 9th at 9:00am, 11:00am, 2:00pm, and 4:15pm.
