Another local Massachusetts article with post-Nationals quotes from Simon Shnapir (of Castelli/Shnapir) and Curran Oi: http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/sp...through-nerves
(Note: The article neglects to mention that Oi also is going to Junior Worlds, which has been moved to Bulgaria from the original location of the Czech Republic.)
