3 high school friends-now in our seventies use curling as an excuse to spend a week together at least once a year for many years. We bought tickets to the 2021 Roar in Saskatoon as soon as they went on sale. We over came glitches and still spent the week together-a very special week. The glitches: one of us had to start a new regime of chemo treatments, one of us lost her husband to Covid a month before the curling. We still got together and although we couldn’t go to all the games together (chemo side effects made it impossible for one of us) . The other 2 went to some of the games in person and watched the rest of the games together on TV. Although it was an emotional we had a wonderful week together. Curling just brings people together!
