Win or lose, Renee Sonnenberg knew she was going to be at the women's world curling championship in Grande Prairie.

"I was going to be there regardless," said Sonnenberg. "I'm going to be working on the ceremonies, so I'll make that my focus now. If one Grande Prairie team had to win today, I'm glad it was the (junior) boys. Life goes on."

So, after losing yesterday's final, Sonnenberg turned to Cathy KIng.

"I told her she'd better be there," said Sonnenberg. "In the end, I said, I'm planning ceremonies and I'd love to introduce you as Team Canada.

"They played just spectacular all week. They deserved it."

After losing their final round-robin game, the team started their Saturday night at the flicks, catching The Last Holiday with Queen Latifah.

"We had some laughs, went to the Japanese Village for an awesome meal," said Sonnenberg. "We relaxed, spend some time together, it was good."

Both King and Sonnenberg will be leaving Edmonton today for the Canada Cup in Kamloops.

"Tuesday morning, we're back on the ice," said Sonnenberg. "We love to play.

"It would be awful if this was it for the year. This and the Players championship over Easter is something to look forward to.

"I have very little regrets over this. I'll be able to sleep tonight. Second is never better than first but, you know what, it's better than eighth."
