Traverse City hosts annual curling tournament, sending team to nationals

Team Riecke was formed during the first few years of the Traverse City Curling Club. The Arena National Championships will take place in South Bend, Indiana next week.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY -- Centre Ice Arena will be playing host to the third annual Cherry Bombspiel which is put on by the Traverse City Curling Club.

The event will take place virtually all day Friday with sessions continuing until 6pm on Saturday and wrapping up at 3pm on Sunday. The public is welcome to attend.

Four Traverse City women who will be watching from the side are preparing for a trip to the Arena National Championships that will be held in South Bend, Indiana.

Jillian Riecke, Dustine Murphy, Cara Colburn and Allison Rose sat down in our latest Jimmy John's Sports Corner to talk about the return of the Bombspiel and the trip down south to compete on the national stage.
