Taylor Marko, representing the Stettler Curling Club, was the lucky winner of a contest for all junior curlers in Northern Alberta, sponsored by Boston Pizza and was asked to attend the 2009 Olympic Curling Trials in Edmonton, AB on Dec. 7 as a “Junior Star”.

Taylor was one of 16 girls and 16 boys drawn from Northern Alberta to be an honorary “team mate” of each team playing at the trials.

Each lucky winner received tickets to one draw, where they were introduced to their team, had a team photo taken, walked out onto the ice with their team and introduced along with their “team mates”.

They also came away with a junior curling broom and curling bag full of goodies. Each curler was given a medallion as a souvenir of the events. Koe’s team graciously gave up one of theirs so that Taylor would have a very special souvenir of the event.

Taylor’s team was Skip Kevin Koe, third Blake MacDonald, second Carter Rycroft and lead Nolan Thiessen.
