It’s curling – but without the ice

THE joy of the Olympics came to members of DELTA, the disabilty social group, at Ringmer Village Hall.

Members staged a ‘Kurling Competition’ at the venue.

That’s an official alternative to the Olympic winter sport of curling, where blocks of stone are slid along ice towards a target.

Kurling makes up for a shortage of ice by having the stones mounted on ball bearings.

Sixteen people took part in four teams of four members. Each was named after a participating country in the Olympics – Team GB, Team USA, Team Canada and Team Australia.

Fittingly, Team GB triumphed after a hard-fought but fun game. Its members were Sue Bacon (skip), John Cooper, Edwina Morris and Theresa Gandey.

Gold medals were presented by the club’s President, Cliff Kent.

DELTA meets regularly at Ringmer Village Hall and organises outings to many places of interest.
