So, not dead, merely curling....again. I wasn't planning on it, but it's the last bonspiel of the season, I didn't curl as much as I thought I was going to last week, so why the heck not. We lost our first game, but we're trudging back into contention. This bonspiel is called the Furspiel, and its unique in that the players kick in $100 each and pot is split three ways. Half for the winner, 30 per cent for second and 20 per cent for third. There are seven teams, so that's $2,800. So if we win, it's about $350 each, which by the time you count in your fee and bar tab means you might break even.
But we're having fun so far. After winning the Dominion last weekend, this is just a walk in the park. We'd like to win, but honestly, the big win was last weekend.
But in the mean time, if you want to have something to keep you occupied you will notice on the right hand side a list of possible walrus names. Please only vote once and I'll announce the winners on Friday morning. I'm not sure what prize the winner gets, but I'll figure out something. Although if its Clare, I'm holding the hypothetical prize for ransom until I get the hat I won for having the best blog post.
Anyway, happy voting and I'll try and post something longer tomorrow.
