9781552858011: Tales of a Curling Hack

Memoirs of Canada's curling expert.

It was no surprise that Team Canada won the 2006 Winter Olympics gold medal in men's curling. As the preeminent curling country in the world, Canada has more curlers than the rest of the other 50-plus curling nations combined. For the past 50 years in this exciting time in curling history, Doug Maxwell has been right alongside the ice, as Canada's foremost observer and storyteller of the sport.

During a 25-year stint as the executive director of the Silver Broom World Curling Championship, Maxwell collected a rich lode of anecdotes. Now he weaves them into a wonderful tapestry that is sure to please lovers of this northern sport.

Maxwell's memoirs include:

  • The legendary Ken Watson
  • The Richardsons
  • The World Heavyweight Curling Bonspiel, where each team weighed in at a combined thousand pounds
  • Embarrassing escapades on the road
  • A stolen key for the front doors of the Scone Palace.

The 'l' in Curling has humor, tales never before told, and insights that help explain why curling has such a hold on Canadians.
