We went to the first Continental Cup in Las Vegas in 2014. We did not know what to expect, but our favourite curlers from around the world were everywhere!

Many Canadians were in an elevator when Team Ulsrud entered (not Thomas). They were talking to each other in Norwegian and all of us were just looking at them in silence. They exited the elevator first and all of the Canadian fans giggled.

You would go for dinner and a team would be at the next table. We were first in line for the Autograph sessions and it was great to meet all of the teams. I felt like I knew them all personally because I have spent every other weekend with them during the curling season.

We have been to all of the Vegas Continental Cups. I miss curling so much during the Covid-19 pandemic.
