With local curlers competing over in Sochi, proponents of the sport are hoping the buzz will spark more interest here at home.

The Superior Curling Club held two open houses over the weekend. On Saturday, they welcomed new curlers to try out the sport outdoors at Barkers Island. Then on Sunday they moved inside to follow up on some smoother ice.

Club President Irvin Mossberger said he hopes they'll find some new members over the weekend.

"Curling locally was really big in the '70s and even up until the '90s, and since then we've seen a little bit of a drop in membership," he said. "And we're trying to take advantage of the excitement generated by the Olympics and try to get a few more members back into the club."

Mossberger said they were aiming to get 50 people throwing stones between noon and 4 p.m. on Sunday. Curious visitors were there from as far away as Nebraska.
