Olympic Gold and Duluth's Curling Club!

Olympic Gold!
All that glitters is not necessarily avian.
Today the City of Duluth, the City of Superior, the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center, and the Duluth Curling Club honored the Olympic champions, so Russ and I went to the DECC to see them. It was wonderful fun.

Autographs from the Curlers!
They handed out these photos for free so we could get them autographed!!
I have a very minor link to the Duluth Curling Club. Their official home is at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC) where this celebration was held. The DECC has a quote by me as part of the permanent decor!!
