    [OMG!] Guess the Curling Club #1

    Could that be the Grimsby Curling Club?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I see the American flag above sheet 5/E, so I'll guess Windsor. I've never curled there. Too close to Detroit for my tastes. Sorry.
    Canada is a place of infinite promise. We like the people, and if one ever had to emigrate, this would be the destination, not the U.S.A. The hills, lakes and forests make it a place of peace and repose of the mind, such as one never finds in the U.S.A.

    Not Grimsby or Windsor, but you're in the right province.

    Nope. Not in Sault Ste. Marie or nearby.

    Nobody? Okay ... it's the Niagara Falls Curling Club. Your lack of knowledge in thinks Canadian disappoints me. Not even Canadian Planner got it right.

    No Way! Too many non-domestic brand cars in the parking lot. Not a mini-van or crown vic among them!

    You know, I looked on Google street view at all the curling clubs across the border near you and even looked specifically at that one. I guess your photo wasn't taken from a street view?
