Sponsor the Double Takeout Prize

Take out this sponsorship and dub every double takeout during one draw of our Bonspiel!

How it works: any time a team makes a double takeout during the draw you sponsor, a marker featuring your sponsorship will move to that sheet's scoreboard. The last team to claim the marker will win a round of drinks and toast to their sponsor!

Sponsor the Double Takeout Prize for just $50 a draw. Please submit an 8X10 logo, image, or picture of your choosing for the marker. Will it be your pet, lucky charm, club logo, or business? We love it all! (Just please keep it PG-13, thank you.) Good curling!

SFBACC is a registered 501(c)3.


Is this bonspiel only for those who are LGBTQ+?

All are welcome to join in! We at SFBACC welcome everyone in our house.
