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.

Practice in St. Paul!
We just had a team practice at the St. Paul Curling Club on Sunday morning, getting ready for the upcoming U.S. Nationals/Olympic Trials in Denver, Colorado. Both Jackie and her husband Ryan had to drive a 4 hour trip from Madison, Wisconsin. Where they won their Wisconsin Mixed State Playdowns on Saturday! Congrats! Our Coach Dex had us throw lots of rocks with some drills and then we ended our practice with a short game against the 2009 State Club Champions.
After a few hours of practice, we went to have a late lunch at the restaurant Ingredients, which is located in White Bear Lake (my hometown!). We were lucky to have been invited to dinner at Ingredients, the owner is one of our sponsors and his son is a professional chef there. We had an excellent time, we had both great food and service! I would definitely recommend to anyone, especially now since Valentine's Day is coming up-- it's the perfect place to take your sweetheart to dinner...hint hint.
