Happy February everyone! The 40th Doodlespiel was held in Banff January 27th to 29th and it was GREAT! Huge thanks to Victor Irwin and his crew for putting on an anniversary event to remember. (Personally, I will have to remember NOT to wear high heeled boots on the ice for the human curling event: many thanks to the gentlemen who glided me back to safety.) And… Congratulations go out once again to our CSEG President, Larry Herd, for having the top A team for the second year in a row. Larry and his teammates Rick Rathier, Kevin Bowman, Roger Edgecombe and Murray Jasman were triumphant over the team of Jim Brack, Dale Johnson, Dave Cryer and Bill Campbell in the finals. Nice work to all involved and hopefully everyone had fun.
