Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Five Grand Forks women are competing for a spot at the upcoming USA Curling National Championships.

It's all playing out at a qualifying tournament going on this weekend in Grafton, North Dakota.

The Grand Forks team is one of nine squads competing for six open spots at the national competition.

The tournament started on Friday and features teams from as far away as New York and California.

The Grand Forks team has been curling together for many years and says that it's not just being teammates, but also friends that make the experience so special.

Madeline Shaft/Grand Forks Curler: "Oh, it's amazing. I love every minute out here. Yeah I don't think I'd enjoy it as much if I wasn't out here with my best friends."

The U.S. Curling Championships will be held in Philadelphia in March.
