Where have we been?
The team took a season break in 2009/2010. The following year, Jamie and I formed a team with a couple of ladies entering the womens curling scene while Laura and Jackie were on maternity leave. Our new one year lineup competed at the 2011 USA Curling National Championships in Fargo, North Dakota where we came out in the top 4 of the round-robin, beat the defending champions in the 3-4 page playoff and ultimately finished 3rd. It was a great season! Jamie and my decision to compete was last-minute and I'm glad we went for it. I don't know if I've ever put more concentration in to such a short period of practice time prior to the U.S. Nationals playoffs, but I learned a lot about how far quality practice can get you and how important it is to have the right kind of chemistry and communication with your teammates both on and off the ice.
For this next season, it's the four of us again but we're changing it up a bit. Laura will be playing as alternate and so we're bringing in Steph Sambor to play front-end. Welcome to Team Potter Steph!
Plans are beginning to take shape for next year's practice and bonspiel schedule. We are looking to step it up a notch and have quite a few games under our belts by the time nationals rolls around. We'll be sure to post our schedule on our blog as we finalize it.

My team is amazing! I can't be too upset by how the Trials turned out. It wasn't our best performance of the year and that's fine. I have never had so much fun curling with any other team and I am grateful for the time that I got to spend with my team this year. From summer teamwork sessions in Medford to Mixed Doubles in a beautiful cabin in Two Harbors, I couldn't have put anything more into this team or expected them to give me any more than they did. Thank you all!!
And the support couldn't have been better! I have five new families: the Potters, Haskells, Lemkes, Johnsons and the Meullers! Thanks:)

I have to say thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors for making this one of the best seasons ever! Without your support, it would have been a struggle to get to the bonspiels and practice and prepare as much as we did.
Also, a huge THANKS to our fans, friends, and family who were always with us, even those of you who are just becoming fans of curling. It's been great to read the posts and emails that you have sent and to hear by word-of-mouth the encouraging words during our season. You all rock! :)
We hope to continue to update this blog even though we're heading into the off-season now. We'll have pics to post soon of the trials and summertime fun!
