Bench Talk / Off The Wire

Curling, curling, curling



From the Port Elgin SuperSpiel to the BOOST National and more.


Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".

Between the Blue Water Industrial scores, the Brokerlink Insurance Major League scores and the annual Port Elgin Superspiel, I didn't think I'd missed anything pertaining to curling....

...Except I somehow omitted Julie Tippin, the Owen Sound skip for the Woodstock Curling Club who are competing at the Boost National in Sault Ste Marie as we speak and earlier managed to win the " B " side at the Road to the Roar Olympic Pre-Trials at Summerside, Prince Edward Island.

With the " B " side victory on PEI, the Tippin rink earned the right to compete at Ottawa next month for the right to represent Canada at the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea.

And how about this for a field.......?

Allison Flaxey

Chelsea Carey     
Casey Scheidegger

& Krista McCarville

That's deep.

And while Julie Tippin, during an extremely brief stop in Owen Sound this week, admitted the Roar of the Rings will be a major challenge, she's also very excited about what's ahead at Ottawa.

I'm Fred Wallace
