St. Paul Curling Club
My father started curling in St. Paul in the late 1950's. I tagged along and eventually was allowed to pay when I was 14. I owe a lot of my passion for the sport to the late Curt Brundlies, who was a mentor to many juniors in St. Paul. Curt taught me the competitive game and took me to a number of bonspiels where I really learned what curling is about. I took of serious curling for most of the last 8 years to spend more tie at home with my young daughters. I'm really happy to be back competing.
