Product Description

Hurry, hard! Home-made curling stones like this one, donated to the museum by St. Alphonsus School in East Kildonan, were used by amateur curlers who couldn’t afford professional stones. “Jam pail” curling rocks were usually made from either jam or coffee cans with a piece of steel rebar serving as a handle. The cans would then be filled with concrete to weigh them down.
