To bring a new winter game to the community, the Willow Ridge Community Association built a Crokicurl Rink. What the heck is Crokicurl you ask? It’s a winter sport that blends crokinole and curling! The rink was built in time to have a tournament at the Willow Ridge’s annual skating party, and it was a hit with the non-skaters says the organizers. The organizers note that many neighbours had never played Crokicurl before, but thought the rink was a cool idea!
The only downside to the tournament was the warm weather, which started to melt the ice! The rink did not require a permit, so the ActivateYYC funds went towards building the rink.
