Registration for the Men’s Bonspiel is now closed. We are still in need of volunteers to work the bar and help the icemaker in between draws. If you have some free time to offer, please see the sign up sheet on the bulletin board. It’s the last
party bonspiel of the season!
Youth are an important group here at the Rose City Curling Club. Programs like the Little Rockers organized by the U of A Augustana Vikings Curling Team encourage and support children as young as 6 years old to try the sport of curling. As kids get older, the Camrose Academy of Curling’s technical training program and student curling leagues are there to provide continued instruction and guidance.
These photos from this past year’s Family Bonspiel saw sixteen teams participate in a fun-filled day on the ice and hopefully inspired some of the participants to ‘Come Play at Our House’ for this 2019/2020 curling season.
The Mixed Team Bonspiel was held March 1st to 3rd with 16 teams competing for cash payouts. Curlers enjoyed a round robin format to decide the playoff teams as well as Friday appetizers and a Saturday banquet with food supplied by FLO Concession from the Encana Arena. Thank you to all the teams who participated. We hope to see you again next year.
The A Event winner was Team Galaxy from Sherwood Park consisting of skip Guy Algot, third Sarah Brown, second Dave Solberg and lead Dana Algot. Continue reading “Mixed Team Bonspiel Winners” →
