How 6 year old Maya Conlin, sees Mixed Doubles Olympic Curling - thanks Tyler for sharing!
How fun was the lasr night of leauge - Fall 2017? Team Conlin got a 6 ender!!! Too fun
Take all the rules you know about scoring and throw them out.
As you know, the object of the game is to be the team with your stone/stones closest to the button without the other teams stone being closer.... right? Well, on "Halloween Inside Out & All MIxed Up" night, the team whos stone is furthest from the button but touching the rings scores! So technically a team could score an 8 ender if they have their "biter weight down". Add "all mixed up scoring" and you're guarenteed to have a good showdown.
Each player put their name and positon in a hat, shake the hat up, then each player pulled a piece of paper out of the hat. Whatever name and position you pulled, you played.
So the Skip for Team Womack (Ben Womack) became the Lead for Team Domek.
Everyone had a goulish time and by overwhelming feedback, a traditional Halloween event was born.
Teams agree to do the "mix it up" were as follows:
Team "Domek" aka Team "Totman"
Lead - Ben Womack, Second - Jerry Boyum, Vice - Mike Rozinka & Skippy - Addie Totman.
Team "Womack" aka Team "Weil"
Lead - Dave Ferro & Lucinda Tutterow (they tag teamed the positon), Second - Mike Dellos, Vice - Mark Rubey & Skippy - Erwin Weil.
Some memorable quotes from the night :
"It's harder then you think to throw a biter"
"I never thought I'd say '"I need to raise the opposing teams stone to the button so I'm sitting shot on the 4 foot"'
"I don't want to sweep the other teams stone out..the closer they are to the button, the better I stand of scoring in the outisde rings"
"Light is good but, a Biter on the back 12 is better"
