    This seems to be the thing to do. Golf in spring, summer and fall and curling in winter. It is hilarious hearing about the stress levels when the two seasons overlap and timing conflicts develop. Often the two groups are the same except when some of the golfers go south for the winter.

    When I think about it, the two groups are almost self-sufficient unto themselves. The general population has little 'social' contact with these two groups Is that the usual result? Is it because of the cost of belonging or choice of lifestyle?

    I don’t know what you mean. My Minnesota relatives are very successful in life as engineers. Ut have wide social circle. They play cards, do church stuff, etc. My brother in law is that rare breed of engineer who has people skills so he has risen in his company quite far.p in management.

    How many of them picked it up in the last two weeks? lol

    Seriously, curling is "a thing" here, particularly lately. Looks like a fun sport. Appeals to the physics buff in me.

    I like to watch curling--in fact most of the winter Olympic sports, save figure skating--I'm glad it's having its day.
