Geocache Description:

This cache is NOT at the listed coordinates However, the cache isn't too far away. To get the coordinates you will need to answer some questions about our favorite winter sport/activity: Curling! You will be able to find all the information needed by digging around the USA Curling website (USACURL.ORG) or through a variety of other sites that can be found with a simple Google search.

Note...the original location was compromised (the stump was removed!). Luckily there was healthy vegetation on the opposite side of the road as the original coordinates. The hint is about the new location.

The cache is located at: N AB CD.EFG W 0HI JK.LMN

1. The weight of a curling stone is AC pounds.

2. The diameter of the largest circle of the "house" on a curling sheet is MB feet.

3. The diameter of the next largest circle of the "house" is H feet.

4. The diameter of the last circle before the ML inch diameter "button" is J feet.

5. The distance between the two Hog Lines is EL feet.

6. A game consists of I or MG ends. (High competition games are typically MG ends and local club games are typically I ends.)

7. With both teams on the ice playing a game there are a total of D players on the ice.

8. Each team has N stones to throw in each end. (C per person)

9. A perfect score for one end in curling is K points. This is curlings equivelant to a Hole in M in Golf, but even harder to get!

10. Curling officially became a Winter Olympic sport in MFFN.

Also...if you have interest in curling after doing your research you can check out the Janesville Curling clubs website to see where we are members and learn more about our roaring game!
