I’ve spent the past couple days in Winnipeg. I’ve always loved the way this city embraces the winter months. The extreme cold is no reason to be a sad butt who stays inside all of the time. Take a lesson from a Pegger, throw on your warmest wool socks and get out there and have some fun!

Crokicurl: The Most Winnipeg Thing EVER?

Do you have the rocks to throw down in the octagon? Will you have what it takes to pass your opponents guard? Can you land the hammer right on the button?  No, no, I'm not talking about the UFC. I'm talking about the newest winter sport in Winnipeg. Crokinole and Curling collide to create possibly the most Winnipeg game of all time, Crokicurl! I had a chance to chat with the Principle Architect of Crokicurl, Liz Wreford, about her inspiration for the game and how to play.

"We've heard people say this is the most Winnipeg thing ever, so for us to be part of that is amazing!"

I pulled together this quick little feature on the new sport for Global Winnipeg. Hope you enjoy. Link to the Global Winnipeg article can be found HERE.

Looking to test your skills in the octagon? Head down to The Forks to try Crokicurl out for yourself. Best of all it is FREE! :)
