Both the Men's and Women's U.S. Olympic Curling Teams are from the same club

Both U.S. Olympic curling teams are from the Bemidji, Minnesota, curling club (Reg. Req'd; thanks to Bill Polley for the pointer).
Two banners, dwarfed by the nearly 100 other ones boasting the success of the Bemidji Curling Club, proclaim Bemidji's connection to the Olympics.

One banner lists the 2006 U.S. Olympic women's curling team that includes sisters Cassie and Jamie Johnson, who grew up in Bemidji. The other banner lists the U.S. men's curling team that includes head coach Bob Fenson, his son Pete and alternate Scott Baird -- all from Bemidji -- plus Joe Polo who grew up in nearby Cass Lake.
