Unfortunately, it was Brozek's rock that was closest to the button, and not ours. So we were out! Nevertheless, we look back at another great experience! We played pretty good, won 3 games and enjoyed Prague. So hopefully to be continued in 2012...

Past weekend Team Hammerheads played the Baden Masters tournament in Switzerland. It was the second time they appeared in this wonderfully organized tournament. The opponents in their group were impressive: Team Denmark (ECC 2010 silver), Team Germany (Andy Kapp, former ECC champion and WCC silver medallist), Team Oehninger (EJC 2010 gold) and Team Ruch from Switzerland.

Unfortunately The Hammerheads didn't reach the quarterfinals after one win (Team Oehninger) and three losses. The games against the Danish and Team Ruch were tight, but lost in the last few ends. Resumé: good games, great tournament, learned a lot, but no quarterfinals. Mixed feelings at the end!
