WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) There's a slight delay for the grand opening of the new Wausau curling center. They'd hoped to have the facility ready this week. Instead a community open house is now scheduled for December 8th.
The delay involves an on-site kitchen and the viewing area that overlooks the ice. The City of Wausau won't issue an occupancy permit until that work is complete.
The new ice sheets have already been installed. Club members have been busy preparing the playing surface.
When it's finished the new curling center will be the largest of its kind in the U.S. It will host national and international competitions -- similar to Wausau's whitewater rafting course downtown.
