It is very rare that I write about something other than Disney. today is one of those times. During the long upstate NY winters, I spend my free time curling (like the Olympic sport). It keeps me active while all the golf courses are covered in snow. Since I began curling in 2002, I’ve got pretty good by club standards and travel to several bonspiels (tournament) a year. One of the bonspiels, I go to is the City of Ottawa bonspiel which a large event featuring mainly teams from Canada. This year, there were 112 teams in the open division and only three teams from the United States. Canada is the world leader in curling so the competition is the best that my team will face all season.
