In 2022, my daughter and I asked Chantel and couple of special olympic athletes, Robin and Shara to curl with us. This was our first time curling with this team. We wanted to go out and have fun and spend the weekend with enthusiastic people. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect to get to the final. We were up agains a team that competes in the curlsk tour, and thought we were fortunate enough to get this far, second place in the A was awesome! However, we ended up with a tie game and had to do a draw to the button for the win. I asked my team who would like to do it. Right away, Robin volunteered. She was so excited and we were thrilled to see her confidence in herself! She made the draw, we won 1st place in the A event! Both teams were close to tears as she came down the ice to see her shot! I have had my share of wins, but I have to admit this one really stands out in my memory!
