I went there with my wife during their Olympic Open House. After watching curling on tv we just wanted to try it. We were a little worried that with all the coverage it got on tv that it was going to be very crowded. I would say it was crowded but it moved very quickly. We got there and within about 25 minutes we were heading down to the ice. Our instructor was ok, probably the low point of the entire experience. It wasn't that she was bad but other instructors we saw (especially when we watched from above) seemed to make it fun. We still had a great time learning since the other 4 people being taught were laughing and joking about everything. Two things I should mention--curling is fun, a little tricky but if I think back to like the first time I tried to throw a bowling ball this seemed easier (and luckily I didn't knock anything down this time). We are already trying to figure out how to go again. We are looking to collect a group and rent out a lane or whatever they call the strip of ice you use. Second--the people are insanely nice. It started with the man who helped us find a place to park to the guy who took our money who was joking with us from the moment we got in. When we were ready to leave my wife wanted to ask some questions about the rental of the ice. That lead to a 25 minute conversation that ended up with the one woman looking for a nurse (i think) who works in a doctor's office to give my wife some advice on a knee replacement. If you are worried that the people will be critical or judgemental, don't be remotely nervous. Not sure a membership is for us (2 hour drive each way twice a week would be tough) but we will definitely be back.
