The Oklahoma Curling Club will give people new to the sport of curling a chance to learn the basics of the Olympic sport of curling on St. Patrick's Day.

Activities will begin at 5:30 p.m. March 17 for beginners, followed by several minigames between teams that will be decided by a drawing.

The “funspiel” is an opportunity for those new to the sport to learn from club members, then participate in actual games in a fun, relaxed atmosphere, said Ron Conion of the Oklahoma Curling Club.

The cost is $20 for the event at the Arctic Edge Ice Arena, 14613 N Kelly Ave.

Nonclub members are required to sign a waiver before being allowed on the ice. People should wear loose-fitting, warm, layered clothing and nonslip shoes such as tennis shoes. No leather soled shoes will be allowed on the ice.

Equipment will be provided by the club.
