SHE GOT IT WRONG

Sean Grassie says Allison Nimik was incorrect when she said the CCA was covering the cost for both her and him to attend the Continental Cup in Camrose, Alta. The CCA will, however, pay for Grassie to travel to Calgary to practise with her and for her to fly to Winnipeg to practise with him before competing at the World Mixed Doubles Championship in Italy.
