Noisy kids

Bring on the noise.

That's one of the ways Cathy King hopes to get an edge on the rest of the field at this year's Scotts.

Her supporting cast has limited experience at a women's national championship.

Third Lori Armitstead and lead Tracy Bush were with King in 2003 when she needed a loss by B.C. in the final round-robin game to get into the playoff round.

Second Raylene Rocque was in Charlottetown in 1999 as fifth for Renee Sonnenberg.

"We all went to Red Deer (2004 Scotts) as a team," said King.

"That way, you're going to get a feel of what it's all about. It's a very different feeling than you can get on TV."

For something completely different, the team got Don Metz of Aquila Productions to cut a special CD.

"It's Brier noise," said King. "Crowds are chanting, there's noise happening. It's just to see what it would be like."

The team took it down to a practise session and impressed a bunch of university kids.

"We took it down to the Saville Centre," said King. "We asked the kids if it would be OK if we played it loud when we were practising.

"They said OK and they were pretty impressed with the way it created an atmosphere. It was fun."
