Curling is a popular winter sport in Canada, and consists of two teams of four playing on a large, rectangular piece of ice. Each end on the ice has a large “bull’s eye” in which each player of the team throws two colored stones at from the opposite end of the ice. Both teams throw from the same side alternating players with each throw. The Skips of each team usually throw their two stones last. There are 10 ends and the winning team has the most points. Points are awarded to the team with the stone or stones closest to the center of the bull’s eye.
