Bonspiels

Bonspiel is what curlers call a tournament, often held over a weekend. Some bonspiels are only for newer curlers, some are social affairs, and some are highly competitive.

The Ugly Sweater Spiel

This holiday season we’re celebrating the greatest miracurl of all: we’ve got dedicated ice in Oakland, baby!

If you like curling a latke, yule have a great time at this two-day spiel filled with seasonal cheer and curling. Don your finest holiday duds and yarns for an ugly sweater contest. Plus, on Saturday night, we’re throwing a Club Holiday Social open to all (included with registration in the spiel)

The Ugly Sweater Bonspiel — Saturday and Sunday, Dec 17-18

  • Curling all day Saturday (first draw at 9am) through Sunday afternoon
  • 16 teams (we ask at least one player be a new curler)
  • Team entry $220

This spiel will follow a modified format with 4-end games (1 hour each) and teams of four players, and each player must rotate to a new position each end. You can register with four or five-people on your team, but we ask that teams include at least one first-year curler (or leave at least one space open when you register).

Registration opens to all members on Monday, November 28 at noon. If space remains, registration will open one week later to non-members. (Teams should only register if they have at least two confirmed players.)

Grand Opening Spiel & Festivities

How do curlers throw a housewarming party? With a bonspiel, of course! To commemorate the official grand opening of our new dedicated ice facility, we hosted our first big bonspiel and invited our Bay Area community and curlers from everywhere to join us for a packed weekend of great curling and opening festivities.

September 23 – 25, 2022
