This summer Wilbur took a tour with part of the East of Maine team. For those of you not familiar with geography, Maine is way up there in the north east corner of the USA. Beyond that ... God's Country! The Canadian Maritime provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick are like no other. Friendly, humble and hard working people, many of whom love to curl. The East of Maine team grew up in this land and invite you to discover it for yourself some day. Let us know if you go. We may have some other tips for the best travel experience.
Ah, Las Vegas! You know the tag line, "What Happens in vegas, Stays in Vegas". Well, recently I was involved in the 2014 Continental Cup of Curling in Las Vegas and since it was broadcast around the world, I can tell a few stories.
Having just read curlKY's post about his first bonspiel experience, I felt inclined to do the same. However, if you don't know me, this was not my first 'spiel. Now I'm no Tour player. In fact my one shot at the Brier (Canada's National Men's Championship) we went 0-2. Dream over. I digress. Since moving to the USA I've been so impressed with the effort that people put into the game. In Canada, some of the membership feel privileged to play and be given a service that they have had for years or even decades. The Fort Wayne SummerSpiel was great peek into the USA Curling scene and what some hard work can accomplish.
