General Bonspiel Information

Bonspiels (or "spiels") are curling competitions generally held over a weekend. Some spiels limit the participants (men only, women only, novices only, etc.), while others are open to all players but have a specific theme (cash prizes, 70's disco outfits, worst holiday sweater, and so on). Although some competitive teams register for spiels, the majority of teams are made up of local recreational curlers, often coming together just for a specific event.

Most teams self-form - but usually the bonspiel chair or organizers can help you find a team.

GCC hosts a number of spiels throughout the year. The menu item on the left "Bonspiels" shows the upcoming and past ones.
