Prestige Hotels and Resorts Classic

Team Bernard didn’t make it to the playoffs this weeken. Their first match of the day didn’t go really well as they let it go 7-2 against Cathy O, sliding to the C event.  Then, on the following match, they gave the winning point to Team Webster in the last end losing 4-3 in a tight match.

Next tournament is the Autumn Gold, first slam of the year and doing something good there would be make it up for all this. The competition starts on October 5th. I’ll post all the details later this week.

Girls, you can do it!

Edmonton Shoot-Out Update

Team Bernard didn’t make it to the playoffs, but they were so close: a great battle in their first match against Cathy King winning in an extra end and then, a brilliant come back against Heather Nedohin – i am sure like me, with that great win, you thought they would make it to the playoffs. But as a match is played on the ice and anything can happen, it was Casey Scheidegger who sent them packing.

Next weekend is off, but then Team Bernard will head to Vernon, B.C. to compete in the Prestige Hotels & Resorts Curling Classic which start on September 27th. . Last year winner was Team Shannon Kleibrink who included Carolyn Darbyshire, who will this year, be an official alternate for Team Bernard.

Just one match today as Team Bernard lost to Team Sweeting. Trailing one with the hammer coming home and needed a big end to win, Sweeting didn’t let that happened and managed to steal . Sliding to the C event, Team Bernard will get another chance but they need to win the 3 next matches to get a spot in the playoffs.

Team Bernard’s next match will be against Team Cathy King tomorrow morning at 8.00am (mt). Ladies, you can do it!
