This was the first of two freelance assignments on the same day at the end of March in 2014. I’ve watched plenty of curling on television, which is pretty much de rigeur for Canucks, but I had never set foot inside a curling rink before, not even back in grade school. The first thing I learned is that it’s very slippery on the rink (especially when holding $5K worth of camera/lens). Secondly…cold. Very cold.
