How good is this? Coupled with the newspaper reports this week, Jim being on CBC The National last night, we are getting coverage unheard of....

There certainly does seem to be a lot of media interest in wheelchair curling....kudos to Jim and his team.

Wow...it is difficult to turn on the news or pick up a paper without reading something about Jim and the Team.

Good luck!
