From Candace Chisholm – 5th for Team SK
“Hello, A bit of an update from Team Sask from Grande Prairie!!
Since arriving yesterday, everything has been awesome. The people here have gone above and beyond!! The hotel is great, the drivers are so accommodating, and the arena as well as ice are just perfect! Getting here and sliding into those new GREEN JACKETS was such a great feeling!
Today the girls competed in the Ford Hot Shot Competition. They all did very well, however were just shy of making the top 8 to go on to the finals tomorrow. The field this year made everything…. Some years a score of 16 out of 25 would get you in, this year 22 was the lowest!!
Tonight was the opening banquet – which included the jewelry presentation!!! The girls look stunning in their new Scotties Necklaces!!
Tomorrow we will be at the rink for the opening ceremonies at noon, and the moment we’ve been all waiting for … Our first game at 1:30!!
