TC Curling Club hoping to attract big event next year

The organizers of the Traverse City Curling Club hope an intent to bid for Curling Night in America will bring dozens of Olympic athletes to the area to compete in the Fall of 2017.

TRAVERSE CITY -- Centre Ice has played host to the Traverse City Curling Club for a little over two and a half years now. The two have partnered together to educate many in the area how one of the most famous Winter Olympics sports works.

Now the club wants to bring a whole new set of eyes onto the area's efforts to grow the game.

President Don Piche sits down in this week's Jimmy Johns Sports Corner to discuss the club's intent to bid on Curling Night in America. The program could attract dozens of Olympic curlers to Traverse City to participate in a tournament months before the 2018 Winter Games begin in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
