Embracing The Future of Curling, with George Karrys


A native of Thornhill, Ontario, George Karrys has done just about everything in curling. As lead for Team Mike Harris, he won the Ontario junior title in 1986 and later a silver medal at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano. Off the ice, he parlayed a journalism degree into ownership of The Curling News, broadcasting and media relations with the World Curling Federation and a consulting career with a variety of sport organizations, agencies, trades and others.
