Once we arrived in Innsbruck, we grabbed a cab to our hotel and were greeted by most of our team mates and Tyler Deans. Great to see him again. We dropped off our bags in our room and proceeded to head back downstairs to whoop it up. Knew this was the night to party with the team, other teams and just enjoy the experience. Not sure what time I went to bed (no watch) but it was a bit of a late one – for practically everybody. The atmosphere was excellent.

Woke up to the sound of what I thought was a motorbike initially, until I heard the sound again and again. Nope woke up to cows mooing. What tha??? Rooster OK, dogs barking OK, but a friggin cow?

Went and had a bit of breaky and a couple coffee & juices, then we had a practice scheduled for 10am. The drive to the arena in Telfs was amazing. Sherry did a great job driving and Lorraine did an awesome job leading the way with her van. This arena was basically an outdoor arena with a temporary roof structure and the ice was so damn slippery, even broomball shoes had next to no traction. The Japan girls showed up early and were watching us practice before they hit the ice after us.

Thought we best go and grab a bite to eat which was a bit of a lengthy adventure. The restaurant we selected had only 2 of 4 staff working that day so it took a fair amount of time to get our beverages. The food came faster! Weird stuff. Ended up coming back to the room and one of the vans went shopping, even though everything was closed (stat holiday). They went and did touristy stuff instead.

We all loaded back up into the vans and proceeded to head down to registration. Had to sign off on some waivers, get our team photo and just enjoy the teams from all the different countries.

Managed to visit with a few folks, then everyone just wanted to head back and get some RnR. Had our team meeting around 9:30 and we all dispersed after that. Most we just going to bed cause it was a long day after a long night of fun times. I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep right away, so Blog Time! Well it’s just before midnight and we’ve got to be downstairs by 7:00am, so guess it’s time to try to sleep.

Until next time!
