Video of Troop 007’s curling match

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.

Use the above player to watch video from the curling match and check out the article in the December 2008 issue of Boys’ Life magazine for more details.
