WINTER 2020 BONSPIELS

January 18th, 2020:  Ladies Funspiel

    • LADIES FUN BONSPIELThis is the first Bonspiel of 2020, taking place on Saturday, January 18th.  It will start at 10:30am with sign-up and a chance for brand new players to get a bit of a lesson and some practise in before the Funspiel begins.  There will be two six-end games with a lunch break between them, so it should all wrap up by late afternoon.  This is a FUNSPIEL and is geared for all ranges of playing ability from absolutely brand new curlers to stick curlers to seasoned veterans.  Teams will be made up from all the entries so that everyone is mixed in a manner to allow for fun while learning/playing games.  Cost is $20, including lunch.  For new players the club will supply all the equipment and lessons.  You are encouraged to wear loose/comfortable & warm clothing and you MUST carry in a pair of clean in-door runners for wearing on the ice.  Please follow us on Facebook for posters and more info.
