USA Curling is saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Mike Kirkeby of Grafton, N.D. Mike was a longtime curler and official at many of USA Curling's and North Dakota's playdowns. He had just been selected to be the deputy chief umpire for the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team Trials this fall in Fargo. Our thoughts go out to his family.
