Action heating up off the ice at world women’s curling

The action on the ice isn’t the only excitement at the world women’s curling championship.

One of the most popular features of the tournament has been ‘The Patch’ set up in the Kin 1 arena.

There’s been something for everyone at The Patch, such as beverages for the adults, or games for the kids.

Those games include an inflatable curling rink, giant Jenga, and cool shots, which volunteers have said has been the most popular game.

While the competition heats up on the ice, it will heat up in the patch, as these games will be up for grabs in tournaments this week.

The champions of these tournaments will win the actual game, and will get to take them home with them.

The giant Jenga is valued at $150, the cool shots tables at $2,500, and the inflatable curling is valued at $4,000.

Additionally, there is a giant pong tournament, in which the winner will win $250.

The finals for these tournaments will take place on Saturday and Sunday.

“We’re looking forward to the weekend when the playoffs start, the crowds will be bigger, and get a little more energy in here,” said one volunteer.

“It’s building up, and the hard part is is that the rest of the world didn’t get the chance to travel here to participate in this, otherwise this would be a lot busier, the locals are all working.”

“I think once the weekend comes and Canada’s in the hunt, this will become a busy place.”

The doors for the patch open at 11:00 a.m. daily (except for Saturday, when they open at noon), and minors are permitted in the patch until 8:00 p.m..
