roar of the rings - edmonton, ab

Had a chance to check out the 2009 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings tournament this morning at Rexall. Having been to the Brier on many occasions, I'd never witnessed women's curling before, so today was a new experience. The early morning start had Rexall Place quite empty, and it seemed the crowd was really waiting for the men to take center stage at 1 pm. The ladies did not disappoint though, and provided some entertaining ends.

I think I was one of 6 or 7 people under 60, which is a shame because I think for the price it's a fairly reasonable family activity. Although, it might hurt that the games are played during the day. Along with being a good deal in your pocket, you get to see Olympic qualifying, and the best competitors in Canada do their thing. There is a few more days left, so you still have a chance to see a few rocks being hurled if you so choose.
