I cheered for Erika Brown from the US, I high fived with Jennifer Jones, I strategized with Rick Lang, and I swept with Ben Hebert (ok…maybe that’s a stretch). And when it was all said and done, our 26 member, North American team pulled off a huge win at the 2011 Continental Cup of Curling!
Fun? Unbelievably so!
Exhausting? Oh yeah…the days were long and for some, the nights even longer. And that is why, this blog will be short.
There are not a lot of first after you have played this game for 30 plus years. But the Continental Cup was one of them and I am so glad I had the opportunity.
Being the newbies, Team Bernard had no idea what to expect. Coach’s Rick Lang and Neil Harrison began the week with a great pep talk, followed by Kevin Martin who imparted his past experience regarding this event. And that was all we needed!
