Every sheet of ice at the local curling club was occupied, as kids from all across the Peace Region attended and learned a few tips and tricks from the four pros.
Everything from technique to strategy was covered at the clinic, as the pros offered nothing but friendly help to the young curlers.
Following the clinic, Koe, the skip on his team, talked about the enjoyment of putting on clinics like Tuesday evenings.
"It’s great; we are all from small towns and all started in junior programs like these. It’s always nice to give back and be in communities we’ve never been in before and it’s a lot of fun."
He also talked about the importance of clinics like the one in Fort St. John to get kids interested in curling, especially because of a lack of opportunities to play the game these days.
Koe and his team mates are in the Peace Region because they will be competing in the 2012 Pomeroy Inn & Suites National, part of the 2012 Capital One Grand Slam of Curling.
The skip talked about the event, which will be taking place at the EnCana Events Centre from Jan.25-29.
"These slam events are some of the toughest going. There are some of the best teams, played on the best ice and are some of the hardest to win. They are a lot of fun and we are looking forward to get back to Dawson Creek."
Koe and his team will first slide into action Wed. Jan.25 when they take on team Jim Cotter of Vernon, B.C. in a round robin match, which begins at 7:30 p.m.
