The Glacier Ice Rink, busy as it is in the winter months, is a bit more cluttered with the recent addition of the Missoula Curling Club.
Peter Hicks, president of the Missoula Curling Club, a chiropractor and native of Las Vegas, is both a state and national curling champion. He served as a judge at the 2002 Winter Olympics and later started the Weber State Curling club in Ogden, Utah, where the sport boomed after the games.
Hicks sees Missoula as a good market for the state’s second startup club, especially after increased media coverage for this year’s winter games shed new light on the sport’s popularity.
