About George Godfrey:

Curls out of: Madison Curling Club and Lodi Curling Club

Curling start: "Both of my grandfathers curled first on outdoor ice. I started on natural ice where I needed to learn to throw the high hard take out. Today I may still unleash one from time to time called the 'hummer.'"
