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! :)

Red River Ice Flows

As temperatures grow colder by the day, I thought it would be appropriate to share something I shot back in 2015. It's daunting to think that we are about to take on another winter here in Winnipeg. The Red River is beginning to slow down and get choked out by ice flowing downstream. Soon the water flowing alongside the muddy banks of The Red will be frozen in place. Winter can feel like the season that lasts forever.

Let this video be a reminder that there will be an end to these frigid months. Winter will eventually release its icy grip on Manitoba. The ice and snow that blankets the Red River will give way to flowing waters once again.
