From Page 5: Signs Of Opportunity Curling is a sport that is just bursting with


new members and new horizons. Te deaf com- munity fits nicely into this growth opportunity. We have members who have paved the way for growth.

Is there an opportunity for your club to reach out to this community of athletes? We need to find a way to help our deaf curlers
