The other half of my holidays was spent back in Edmonton at the Roar of the Rings - the Olympic curling trials. My friend Courtney and her dad drove up from Calgary and we had tickets to the Thursday through Sunday curling action. Basically we caught the end of the round robin play and then had seats to all of the semi-final and final action.
It was electric and slightly emotional to watch the women's and then the men's teams qualify to represent Canada at the Olympics. I felt like I had been a part of Canadian history. There are pictures of the round robin play and then Team Martin receiving their gold medals. I've also included some pictures of the hijinx in The Patch. One thing curlers and their fans like to do is drink!
