Unknown to almost everyone, I was to make a return to curling this weekend at the Cathy Kerr Bonspiel in Ottawa. I had been discussing the opportunity to get back on the ice for some time with my good friend Wayne Fieck from the NOCA.
We had decided that the Cathy Kerr would have been a great place for me to jump back on the ice for some fun by playing third for Wayne on Friday and Saturday for a couple games.
On Monday at work, I injured my back and had been trying to rest so that I would be able to play this weekend for the first time in nearly 3 years.
The injury has turned out to be far more extensive then I first thought and I have been unable to attend. I want to publicly apologize to Wayne and the team for not being able to make it. I know you where counting on me but this was unforeseen.
I hope sometime in the future we may be able to play with each other. Again; I am sorry.
