Estevan always has great curling

Anytime curling is on television I tune in, so being that it was happening in my hometown I took advantage of the opportunity to see a world class event. From December 5-9, 2018, Estevan hosted the Home Hardware Canada Cup, I decided to volunteer for the event because I thought it would be a nice way to interact with people and watch some curling. It ended up being a terrific way to meet people, make new friends and talk to old ones but, I watched minimal curling.

My volunteer posts were not on the ice surface as I had hoped, however, I did get the opportunity to lead two teams out for the introductions. That experience is memory I will hold near and dear to my heart for a lifetime.

While waiting in the corridor, to bring Team Epping to the ice surface, the team was staying loose by playing a stopwatch game. Start then stop, fastest time won. As in, the person able to hit start then stop the fastest won. The friendly competition prompted Team Einarson to get involved. At that point I really wanted to ask someone to fetch me a watch because I wanted in, but it was time for the actual game to start so we quickly regrouped and made our way out onto the ice.

That day I vowed to not only practice curling, so I could look as cool as they do out there, but also to get a stopwatch in case I run into them again. Maybe I’ll have an easier time beating them at the stopwatch game versus the game of curling. Maybe I’m a natural and I find that out when I go to the Estevan Curling Club for my first practice, they have a terrific program that caters to all skill levels. If you’re interested in watching more curling there is a U15 & U18 Bonspiel, January 18-19, 2019 in Estevan, SK.

Get out and #ExperienceEstevan.

Till next time!

I am looking forward to sharing my interests with the folks of Estevan, which include coffee, my dog Kaiser, the outdoors, staying active, and being selectively cheap. There are some great options in Estevan if the last three appeal to you. I spend quite a bit of my free time working out at the track at Affinity Place, utilizing the equipment at Fresh Air Fitness, and touring the trails and walking paths throughout the city.

I think my personality shines through in my experiences and hope you enjoy my wit and sense of humor.

  • My Summer…. Experiencing Estevan

    I had an awesome summer working at the Visitor Centre here at the Estevan Leisure Centre. Lorin and I had the opportunity to meet some very kind people traveling from all over Canada and as well as the United States. I thought I would write to you one last time and give you a short over view of all the things I was lucky enough to experience this summer.
