Steel Town Letdown; Wheels Rolling Onward to Chatham
As we continue to roll towards the OCA Zone Playdowns in early December, there have been some ups and downs recently.
After two qualifying weekends in both Ingersoll and Sarnia, things came to an abrupt halt in Hamilton at the inaugural Glendale Cash Spiel. Without re-hashing what was an extremely frustrating weekend, let’s just say we hope that type of play was a blip on the radar and behind us. We did not do much of anything well, and did not qualify, leaving us to depart Hamilton early and quite hungover.
Since then, things have turned back around. We have rattled off two consecutive Toronto Major League victories and are excited to hit the road to Chatham for the OCT Chatham Granite Cash Spiel this coming weekend. We have enjoyed some success at this spiel in the past and are looking to build on that and get back to our qualifying ways. Our 5th-man, Brian Chick will be jumping into the lineup this weekend at lead, as Ryan Parker takes a weekend off. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed (@GameofStones) this weekend for updates.
Outside of our team, this is the busiest time of year in the curling world and we are watching with great interest as many friends chase their Olympic dreams. The United States Olympic Trials are on now and the Canadian Trials will be front and centre in the next couple of weeks. As always, we will be watching and commenting online on the multitude of stories that unfold.
Chat again soon Game of Stoners! (cool name, maybe Mayor Ford is a fan….. )
