The Scouts of Troop 007 in Lewiston, Me., spent a day last February at Maine’s Belfast Curling Club learning and competing in the sport of curling.
Curling is an ancient sport, a lot older than football or basketball. It began in 16th-century Scotland when it was played outdoors on frozen marshes. Now it’s played worldwide — indoors — and is part of the Olympic Winter Games.
