40 degrees in July
Cal, me and Roger before a game.
Over the 4th of July we headed to Pittsburgh for the 5th Annual Tropicurl. Roger and I have been to every Tropicurl and so we were awarded a special patch for our loyalty! This year we had a new team, with me as skip, Laurel as vice, Roger as 2nd and Cal as lead. The first game was a bit rocky. We were all rusty, made a lot of mistakes and lost to a Canadian team on Thursday night. We regrouped on Friday and Saturday, winning three games against a Pittsburgh team and two Canadian teams. On Sunday, we played in the semi-finals against another Canadian team from Ontario. We stayed in the game until the 7th end. When we couldn't score, we shook hands after the 7th and called it a day. It's always a treat to be in a nice cool ice arena when it's 90 degrees outside!
