We are joined by Felix Price from Team Sugden (the junior team Jonathan coaches) to talk about curling etiquette. Three generations of curlers discuss when and how to teach it to new curlers with in-depth discussions on pace of play and the burned rock rule. All this plus the latest curling news, including the end of the Curling World Cup.
We give a lot of love to the USA Curling Arena Nationals and recount all of our previous failures at it. We then preview every team at this year’s event and interview Travis Geiser of the Chester County CVB and Dave Rosler & Dave Kolibaba of Ocean State Curling Club. If you enjoy this podcast, please leave a review and tell your friends to check out the show. Good curling to everyone in West Chester!
Topics: We preview the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship with England’s Anna Fowler. Anna and her brother, Ben, are the first English team to be accepted to the British Curling program. She talks about how she got into curling, what she likes about mixed doubles and what it took to become part of Team GB. Also: Big names at this year’s championship, how mixed doubles grows the sport and how the discipline is evolving now that it’s part of the Olympic program.
