Bad Ice at Canada Cup and Boost National?
.. I'm not an ice maker, and I play on crappy arena ice, but it was obvious that curlers were having an unusually hard time making shots at the GSOC Boost National and, perhaps to a lesser extent, at the Canada Cup. Unusually swingy ice was mostly to blame, but I believe that dished ice on at least one sheet at the National was also a problem.
.. Does anyone know whether players' have been complaining about the ice at the National, in particular? Are steps being taken to improve the ice at upcoming GSOC events? Is 5 and 6 feet of curl even considered to be a problem that needs correcting? To me, the curlers seemed frustrated, shot percentages were lower than normal, and hit and sticks and hit and rolls appeared to be particularly troublesome.
