What you need to know to watch curling

NORFOLK — Somewhat surprisingly, curling, a sport that few Americans play or even watch on a regular basis, has become one of the more popular Winter Olympics sports for spectators.
It debuted as a full-medal sport at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan.
The Winter Games began Feb. 8 in Pyeonchang, South Korea, with hours of curling to watch. In fact, it was among the first sports in competition, beginning on Thursday before the opening ceremonies had even been held.

Triumph at Jumpfest despite rain

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s annual Jumpfest weekend set attendance records, even with one full day of jumping canceled due to rain.
According to Willie Hallihan, the paid attendance on Friday night, Feb. 9, for target jumping and the Human Dogsled Race, was more than 300 people.
And on Saturday, with the air temperature around 40 degrees and a looming threat of rain, the event set what Hallihan believes is “a modern-day attendance record,” with a paid attendance of just under 1,400.

The excitement of Jumpfest will be Feb. 9 to 11

SALISBURY — The ski jumps are back again, at Satre Hill in Salisbury. 
From Feb. 9 to 11, The Salisbury Winter Sports Association (SWSA) will present the highlight event of the winter: the much-loved Jumpfest weekend. 
It all began when Norwegian immigrant John Satre saw a group of children trying to ski off a roof in Salisbury at the home of Judge Don Warner. Satre saw them, politely asked, “Do you mind if I yump?” and the Salisbury ski jump festival was born.

NW7 girls: 16 and counting

WINSTED — The Northwestern Regional 7 girls basketball team was riding high as February rolled in.
The Highlanders had won their first 16 games of the season and were number one in the state Class M tournament rankings. Of course, a lot has to happen yet, but Northwestern is only six games away from an unbeaten regular season and seems to be improving each game.

Studio Lakeville, where dreams come true

LAKEVILLE — The eagerly awaited new iteration of Studio  Lakeville on Route 41 in Lakeville opened to the public on Friday, Feb. 2. The former firehouse has been lavishly renovated; it’s hard to believe that it was for many years the town’s firehouse.
The snug parking lot out front has been filled nearly constantly since then, with people taking classes; using equipment that ranges from free weights, treadmills and Cybex equipment to a squat cage; and inquiring about fees and schedules.

Too much of a good thing for NW 7 boys is … a good thing

WINSTED— Northwestern Regional 7 boys basketball coach Doug Sebach has a nice problem: He almost has too many good players.
But he’s not complaining. That situation is why Sebach can use nine players during games and not see any drop-off in effort and production on both ends of the court.
Northwestern was unbeaten in the Berkshire League (11-0) at mid-season, with the team’s only loss a 3-point defeat at the hands of Pomperaug in a non-league battle early in the campaign.
