#BetweenTheSheets: Conception Bay Calling
But who answered the phone to qualify for the Boost National?

*Ring, Ring*
*Ring, Ring*
*Ring, Ring*


"Hi, this is the Grand Slam of Curling calling and YOU are invited to Conception Bay for the 2019 #BoostNational!"

The #gsoc curling phone is ringing as the qualification cut-off date has passed. Who received the calls? Who answered? And who is left sitting at home alone wondering what could have been?

#BetweenTheSheets with Laura Walker
Discussing post-Olympic planning, gender (in)equality, 
mixed doubles and more

It has been awhile since we have opened up our curling arms and welcomed a new member into the coveted #TwineTimeFam rock heads and stoners. While the season has been sliding along, this blog has been waiting to find the perfect candidate to become the first new member of the family for the 2018/19 season.

With the Women of Curling calendar heating up curling houses around the world, a new team to hit the ice with and proving to be a dynamo on the mixed doubles circuit it was an easy choice to reach out and ask Laura Walker to become our newest #TwineTimeFam member.

And did we ever have a lot to talk about.....

#PACC 2018 Preview

#BetweenTheSheets: Creating a Korean Curling Legacy?
Defending champs play host to the 2018 #PACC at the 2018 Olympic venue

Halloween has come and gone once again. Bring on my favourite month of the year: November!

Ok perhaps I am biased because my birthday falls within this month but, from a sports perspective, it is quite exciting. Hockey season is in full tilt now. CFL season heads into the playoffs. NFL season heads into the bulk of important weeks leading into the playoffs. NBA season is now underway. College football is starting to talk about the playoff. And curling has Grand Slam of Curling events, tour events and continental championships for us to salivate over.

See November is not that bad is it? Plus Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" rejoins the Top 100 charts for another year. Don't lie....you rock out to it in your car every chance you get!

This week we welcome November highlighting our first continental championship of the season, the Pacific-Asia Curling Championships or, as this blog prefers to say, the #PACC! This week the #TwineTime blog Backs the #PACC!

#BetweenTheSheets: Conception Bay Chase Continues
Is the #gsoc qualification a game best fit for Tom and Jerry?

The game is afoot now. The chase is on. Tom pulling out all the stops trying to catch Jerry. Jerry being elusive and always one step ahead in avoiding the catch. Will Tom ever catch Jerry? Doesn't seem likely does it?

The cartoon game of cat and mouse is quite symbolic to the real-life game of Grand Slam of Curling qualification. The "next level" teams, or the Tom's of the tour, are trying to chase down the "elite" teams, or the Jerry's, sitting comfy in their #gsoc hacks. It was the instinctual reaction for Tom to want to catch Jerry as it is an instinctual reaction in sports for teams wanting to knock off those at the top.

In curling, does Tom ever catch Jerry?
