Is it reading week for some of our future leaders, curlers and Olympians right now? The time where they can put down the textbooks, the highlighters and the notepad and go live life and have fun? Well yes rock heads it is reading week. And what perfect timing. Those young minds can hit up their closest arena and curling club, get some exercise and enjoy the fundamental game we love: curling!
But alas it is not a holiday week for everyone. We also have some pretty major curling competitions going on right now on Bluenose Island. Nova Scotia is hosting the 2019 Scotties Tournament of Hearts and 2019 World Junior Curling Championships. For those young minds who cannot (or will not) venture outside, at least they can chill on the couch and watch some great curling right?
For some of us media types (ha like how I just self-appoint myself a curling media member there?!) the work picks up more steam than ever trying to jostle coverage of two major events at the same time. It is why, for this special blog post, both events will be facing Big Red.
