SPECTRUM NEWS VIDEO: Well the Olympics are technically over but the spirit of Olympia never really dies. In an earlier Empire Adventure, Spectrum News 1's Casey Bortnick went curling back in November and it didn’t go so great.
In a first ever “Empire Adventure Redemption” Casey was invited back by the Schenectady Curling Club to give it another try. This time, Casey brought along his Your Weekend co-anchors, Melissa Steininger and Mercedes Williams, for a friendly competition.
Dave Fink from the Schenectady Curling Club provided a crash course on the sport. So these are the basics: two, four-person teams glide eight stones each on a long sheet of ice aiming for a bullseye-like target called the House.
For this modified anchor match each player was given three throws the closest was crowned the champion.
