Yesterday, I posted some photos of the "Transoceanic Curling Event", an event sponsored by the Grand Forks Curling Club. I sent photos to the club, and now they're putting my photos on their web site!
Today, I'm posting some photos from the Men's World Curling Championship. Mostly, I focused on the US team.
Yesterday's photos were more a good-natured scrimmage; these guys are much more serious. (And I couldn't help be notice, have much more toned up bodies!)
Some people in town volunteer to provide housing from the visitors from other countries. One man I know told me about the two 20-some year old students from Sweden that he's letting sleep on army cots in his house. He took them out to see the buffalo farm near town, and they were shocked to see "extinct" animals!
In this photo (above) you can also see two photographers. The guy lying between the "lanes" has not been knocked down; he's taking pictures.
Look how close to the ground the player delivering the rock has to be! ouch! That would definitely be hard on my knees!
