It lacks rinkside TV cameras, big-money sponsors, and 18-kg hunks of Ailsa Craig granite roaring down the sheets. But there is no shortage of curling fun on this lake near Geraldton, Ont., thanks to Mike Goulets coffee-can rocks. Goulets curling rocks are similar to the jam-can stones once common in Prairie schoolyards, but the plastic coffee containers he uses have a concave bottom that lets them slide and curl more like the real thing. Goulet welds the handle for each rock out of steel rod, then fits it with a painted dowel for the grip. For heft, he adds exercise weights salvaged from garage sales. When curling season beckons, all he has to do is open the coffee containers, drop in the handle assembly, fill the containers with water, and let them freeze—slowly, since a fast freeze makes them bulge.
