First of all, we — Danielle Reid, Cami Kepke, Katie Wigen and Lexi Czar — are very grateful to have had the opportunity to travel to Richmond for the B.C. provincial curling championships from March 10-12. It was an honor to have made it this far with our minimal curling experience, and will carry this memory with us for the rest of our lives.

The other teams had many years of experience on us, but we held our own. Over the course of three days we curled seven games.

The event concluded with a banquet and awards ceremony, where Kepke was elected as our representative where we expressed our gratitude and thanks to the organizers and our coach. At this time we were presented with our seventh-place plaque that had our team photo on it. We made many friends, and learned a lot, truly a great experience.

We’d like to thank Prince Charles Secondary School for supporting us, our parents, Creston Rotary Club, Creston Curling Club, Town Of Creston and Sylvia Main for making this trip possible.

Most of all we’d like to thank our coach Terry O’Connor, who was always working around our busy schedule and always having faith in us through our roughest times. We are truly thankful for everything Terry and our supporters did for us, and are grateful we made it this far in our first season together. It was an amazing experience.
