Eoin and Clare report from their recent trip to visit Katie in Hollywood, USA…..
“We have just spent two days in LA curling with Katie Kerr and her club Hollywood Ice in their Summer Blockbuster bonspiel.
Eoin skipped the Bond Girls to the semi final while Clare joined Team IreLAnd(sic) who won two of their three matches. As well as club curlers there were celebrity skips and showbiz personalities. The whole weekend was amazingly well organised and we were made very welcome as Irish curlers. Our team mates and opponents are now the proud owners of ICA badges. Highlights of the curling were Eoin’s debut as a skip in a pink sparkly jacket, and Katie’s demonstration of new found skill with the curling pole-having recently had knee surgery. We found some time for off ice fun too. Disneyland film studios, and the beach –and to top it all the 4th July Hollywood Bowl concert. Thanks, Katie and everyone at Hollywood Ice.”
