Akron, N.Y. (WIVB) – Akron Youth sports will benefit from a different kind of sports tournament held Saturday.

Doug Matusek and some friends organized a curling tournament.  That’s the sport that’s popular in Canada and athletes compete in during the winter Olympic games every 4 years.

The group made much of the equipment used by the competitors.  It took them about 600 hours to make the gear for the tournament. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
