Would have been nice to arrange a few special city buses to get lots of people to the airport for their arrival time.

Sault Ste Marie... we are so proud of Brad and the boys. We heard over and over that Team Jacobs from Sault Ste, Marie, played out of Soo Curlers Assn.

In order to achieve the level of play Team Jacobs has risen to, they have required first rate conditions to play and practise on. They will be working hard in their preparations for Sochi. You can help. It costs a lot of $$ to maintain the Soo Curlers facility and to offer the best curling venue in N Ontario.
Budgets can get very strained trying to maintain this level. The public can help support Team Jacobs by supporting Soo Curlers. The restaurant is open to the public daily. The Friday Fish Frys are exceptional. The hall is available for parties. The kitchen will cater parties. You can drop in with friends and have a drink and watch a game.
Your support will ensure that Soo Curlers is able to nurture young curlers willing to take Team Jacobs place in the future. You can even join a league.

Consider giving your support to Soo Curlers when you decide where to stop for lunch or dinner.

great idea - for the fans.
But it's hard to imagine someone wanting this after just getting off a flight, after a week of what would have to be one of the most mentally and physically exhausting events.
