On The Road Again

POSTED: January 14, 2012

What a couple of months it has been! I know I have the best job in the world, but sometimes I just have to pinch myself to see if I am actually here!

This week I am in one of my favourite places in the whole world - Berne, Switzerland, a place I have been to many times but am always in awe of the beauty and character of this lovely town.

There are six Canadian teams competing here at eh 44th Annual Berner-Damen-Cup, three of them are in the National Team Program which I oversee.

So I have been following the progress of Team Jennifer Jones, Team Cathy Overton and Team Chelsea Carey who are all still alive and in the hunt. Also taking in some of the games of the other Canadian girls - Team Jan Betker (with my old friend Lindsay Sparkes), Team Suzanne Birt, and old friends Colleen Jones and team. It has been so great to see everyone here!

Although I have been to this great spiel many times, it has been especially fun to have my side-kick Melissa Soligo here with me. Nice to have someone to hang out with! We had a nice late evening cheeze fondue and glass of wine with Jen Jones and team last night and I have had some fabulous chats about performance with Mike McKewan who is here with Dawn Askin.

So long couple of days ahead, but it couldn't be more perfect that to be here in beautiful Berne doing what I love!

Happy Curling Friends!
