This is a good improvement.

We should call this the "Birr Rule"



It would be more appropriate to call this the Clark Rule

Another update on Team Birr, from their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Team-T-Birr-847772695318741):
-----
"Team Birr is happy to announce the addition of Hunter Clawson to our team for the 2017-18 season! We're very excited to have such a great young player to the team. First event is Oakville, ON over Labor Day Weekend! Welcome Hunter!"
-----
Looks like they're doing everything possible to put themselves in position for a serious run at the trials, adding a strong, young player to the team and lining up a competitive schedule.

Nice pickup both ways.

Team Birr gets the kid squeezed out of HPP by the numbers game, Hunter gets a solid team to transition to his first year post juniors.

I like it. I gotta wonder how that works for Hunter though, being based in Maryland and team Birr being based out of....very much not Maryland...I suspect either a lot of frequent flyer miles for him, or a move out of the Clawson Nest (which makes me as a Potomac Member a little sad, but in that "Yep, gotta do it" kinda way...I hate how our best players have to leave to get anywhere beyond the Clubs level).

At least according to the team info on CurlingZone, there isn't a single co-located team in the Trials, so they all deal with the same issue (except the HPP teams presumably have the advantage of funding for training/practice travel).

Team Clark: Seattle, Fairbanks, Minneapolis, Seattle

Team Brown: Madison, Madison, Minneapolis, Seattle

Team Shuster: Duluth, Duluth, McFarland, Duluth

Team McCormick: Sarnia, Duluth, Duluth, Milwaukee

Just an FYI,

Curling Night in America went well...had a new record attendance of just over 7300 (all three days).

As for the trials, heard that they've sold nearly 2000 week-long packages!!!!

Had fun being an off-ice official.

Read on the Team Birr Face Book page that their USOC appeal will be heard Sept 21.

Read on the Team Birr Face Book page that the arbitration session is over.

Looks like it was a long session. Started at 9am and didn't conclude until 7pm (with breaks no doubt). Not sure if this is the norm or if it's due to the complexities of the case. Probably lots of data, documents and scrolling through the USCA's selection process.

The team hopes for a quick decision.

Hope they win their appeal.
