A New World Record in Curling?

Who would think to do this [reg. req'd, h/t to Brian Ferguson]? Who would think to document it? And how long would it take?

Camille Villeneuve has come as close as anyone to seeing it all in curling.

The 77-year-old from Chicoutimi, Que., is attempting to earn a place in the Guinness Book of World Records by curling in the most clubs.

As of Monday and stops at the Bushell Park Curling Club and Hillcrest Sports Centre, his total was 576.

That's 527 clubs from coast-to-coast, north-to-south in Canada, along with 19 rinks in Scotland and 30 in the U.S.
He expects to have visited and played at 610 different clubs before Christmas. Imagine trying to set up games in all those clubs.

At the same time, what a great way to visit so many different places in Canada, Scotland, and the U.S.and to meet so many people.

And to top it off, he's one of the nicest guys you'll meet. But who would expect anything less from a curler?
