|Slotland.com is pleased to announce that they have renewed their sponsorship of an Ontario curling team for a second year. “Team Slotland.com”, as the team has come to be known, will be competing this weekend in the St. Mary’s Cashspiel, an annual event organized by two Team Slotland players.|
“We’re in the business of making dreams come true,” said Hannah Morante of Slotland. “These young men have dreams of making it to the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and we’re happy to do what we can to help them achieve that goal.”
Last season, funding from Slotland.com enabled the team to compete in more tournaments than they could afford to attend the year before, giving them the kind of experience they need to become serious Olympic contenders.
“All the extra competition last year really helped us tune our game,” said Gerry Geurts. “Rob Lamont, our Second, sprained his wrist playing baseball just days before the curling season started this year, so we didn’t start off that great. But we’ve been serious contenders our last few times out, and if we improve as much through this season as we did last year, Team Slotland could be the team to beat!”
