It is definitely an influx of business to Lethbridge because most people were staying in hotels and going to restaurants and taking cabs, etc.
I thought it was interesting that people were walking around downtown at 1:00 am carrying their curling brooms around. I flagged a few folks from a local hotel and they had their brooms with them and what not and I assumed they were going to the curling rink, well I was wrong because I guess they were planning on going to the strippers before their game, awesomeness. I want to be a part of this curling tournament/get away.
I guess they had some problems last year getting cabs so they made arrangements with some local companies to provide additional service for them.
I remember being sent to a popular bar in the early morning hours and after I saw a few curlers waiting for a ride at the curling rink I basically said fuck the bar and helped these curlers get to their hotel. They definitely brought me a lot of business this weekend and I hope they come back to Lethbridge next year.
