The close of the 2017 calendar year is fast approaching and with it brings a mixed bag of emotions. We have reasons of celebration. We have reflection on the ups and downs of the previous 12 months. We have tears of joy and tears of sorrow over the events in our past. We also have excitement towards the unknown of 2018. And we have anticipation for milestone moments.
A big cause of excitement and anticipation for athletes, nationalists and sports fans will be the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics. From a curling perspective, the end of 2017 brings an end to the 4-year qualification cycle. A select collective curling family will emerge from PyeongChang as Olympians.
The family filled out the remainder seats at the celebratory table this past weekend but not without a bit of drama, intensity, disappointment and....head scratching? Just like a normal holiday family get together for most of us right?
