I got an invitation to play in the Golden Gate Bonspiel.

Memorial Day Weekend.

In Fremont, California. Just up the road from BayCon. Which is ALSO that weekend.

Played for almost three hours. My team won six ends, the other team won one end, we drew for one end.

Mostly fun, but ye gods I was tired.

Well, tonight's game was an automatic forfeit - I was the only one on my team that could make it. However, we rounded up three subs and curled for fun instead.

Each team got four ends each, points were 7 to 8. Losing by one point when most of your team haven't played together before isn't bad at all.

The target is only about two meters wide. A direct hit will start a chain reaction that will hopefully knock the remaining stones out of the house.......

Watching the adult curlers after Mhari's last youth league meet tonight. One team was dressed as characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Playing against a team dressed as bunnies.

So I suggest to Mhari we get some fellow SCA, 501st, or Rebel Legion members interested in curling, and set up a team of our own.

Mhari just looks at me and says "Daddy, you wouldn't *dare* !!!"

She should know me better by now........
