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 Nationals in Medford!

Starting Sunday, March 22, I'll be curling with Ryan, Kroy Nernberger, and Becca Wood at the Mixed Nationals in Medford.  It would be great to have a house full of fans cheering on the home team!  Email us at wisconsin@usacurl.org.  We'd love to hear from you!  Also, you can follow the action at usacurl.org/curlingrocks/.  Thanks for all your support!

Thank you!

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:)

Post-season wrap-up

A tough week in Denver...but no regrets, because we tried our hardest. If we look at the silver lining, we're still a young team and there will be another chance in 4 years. Plus, we can spend time with our friends and family who have sort of been put on hold this past season. And, my hubby and I are getting a puppy in a few weeks and I'm excited to watch it grow up!

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!
