It's Halloween and Jenna and Price bond over their dislike for candy corns. Plus they catch up on everything we missed last week, including the first Grand Slam of Curling event in the books as well as the second one next week in Nova Scotia. The MadTown DoubleDown mixed doubles event this weekend in Madison, Wisc., is the second opportunity for U.S. teams to earn an automatic bid into the 2020 U.S. Mixed Doubles Nationals in the spring. They also get into self-funded teams and why they are so critical to the sport.
On this week's edition co-hosts Jenna Martin and Price Atkinson get into a busy week around USA Curling! Jenna dishes on her first Members Assembly she attended last weekend at home in Milwaukee, they share in the excitement of the U.S. Olympic Trials returning to Omaha in November 2021 and also get into the snowstorm in Portage, Manitoba that canceled last week's Canad Inns Men's Classic.
They discussed what they'd do if they were stuck in a snowstorm with no power, food, water or Twitter (yikes)! Plus we welcome in Price's CurlingZone colleague Rory McCusker to dish on what it was actually like being stuck in Portage, how the teams handled it and whether the hotel became a curling "frat house." Finally, Jenna and Price unknowingly discovered they have a shared-'love' interest and a forever bond that will never be broken!
The 2019-20 curling season is underway and so are we with our first episode of the season. And welcome in new "The Extra Extra End" co-host and former member of USA Curling's High-Performance Program, the one and only Jenna Martin!
Host Price Atkinson cuts to the core of who Jenna Martin really is and we get into a lot of developments during the offseason, including Jenna's thoughts on the 8 vs. 10 ends debate and lineup changes on the women's side of the USA HP program. Plus what Price learned during last week's trip to Korea for Uiseong International Curling Cup, Team Roth sitting atop the WCT money list and Team Dropkin's top-four finish at last week's Stu Sells Toronto Tankard. Such much fun and it's only the start!!
