Not too much to report other than the Climax bonspiel is over for my team for this year. We lost our first game which put us in the second event. However we got on a roll and won the rest of our games and got first in the second. When the picture comes out next week in the paper maybe I'll post it.
Last night was the dance and the calcutta. Which pretty much is when people auction style bid to buy a team for the grand challenge which is today. The top four teams get the owner paid out to with certain percentages and the team who gets first wins 5% of the calcutta. I gave the nice young lady who bought our team a couple of complimentary dances just in case we didn't make her any money. We came out strong in our first match today but were up a strong team and we couldn't quite pull the win out and lost by 2 but it was really close and it is always enjoyable to have a nice competitive game. Nothing now to do but get ready for our home spiel that is in a weeks time.
On the poker front nothing really that interesting at all. Just playing, trying to get in hands and get the money in good. I have been playing only 2 tables instead of 4 and trying to concentrate more on play and stealing a few more mid size pots with semi bluff type hands.
Farming is still farming. Took the semi in last week to get it checked out and it is still in the shop. However I like fixing these things before they cause me a major problem when I need it the most. Also I think our fertilizer is coming next week so I'll have to be ready for that and shift some things around so our fert bins are empty. For fertilizer you can't have straight steel bins because the fert is too corrosive and would eat the bin up in a year so you need coated bins that last longer but ours are full of seed so some shuffling will be done.
I've been keeping up with the olympics as well and will be excited to watch the hockey game tomorrow. I'll prob write a bigger update later since it seems like there is so much to say. However I'm very proud of our athletes and the games that my country put on. It was really nice to see that we could pull through in the clutch, even though the pressure was on big time. Well hope everyone is keeping their sticks on the ice.
