Who are we?

Who are we? Each of us on Team Potter grew up competing in a sport that many people are just now beginning to hear about: curling. It's a sport of strategy, strength, skill and camaraderie. In the fall and winter months we spend much of our time practicing and competing in bonspiels both in the USA and internationally; and in the off-season, we train and prepare ourselves for the competitive season. We are currently training for the 2014 Olympic Trials. Follow this blog to check in on our competitive season.

Mixed Doubles Recap

What a fun weekend! Corrie and I were 5-2 after the round-robin and finished in 3rd place in pool B, just one game shy of making the semi-finals. Laura and Nate G. finished the same as us in the A pool with a 5-2 record. Jackie and Ryan finished 6-1 and were #1 in the A pool, with Jamie and Nate H. finishing #2. Both teams advanced to the semi's and had great games there. Congrats to Team Clark, who won the Mixed Doubles competition and congrats also to my sister and husband for playing a great final against them.

The weekend was made especially fun in the down-time by staying at the Larsmont Cottages just outside of Two Harbors. The 4 of us and our teammates rented a 3-bedroom cottage that included 3 1/2 baths, a gourmet kitchen, living room with TV, DVD, and stereo, dining room, jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms, outdoor grill and a wonderful location next to Lake Superior. We cooked up some delicious meals including chili, fajitas, spaghetti, and venison along with baking cookies. It was a great weekend to work on our draws and finesse shots without relying on too much sweeping.
