The 14th Annual 5 & Under Bonspiel
February 28 and March 1, 2015
Registration for the 14th Annual 5 & Under Bonspiel is now open. Exclusively for Granite members that have curled five years or less, this unique event always fills up quickly, so please register and pay your fees ASAP.
The entry fee is $50.00 per person.
Pay online when you register or put your check, made payable to GCC and labeled 5 & Under Spiel, in the GCC bookkeeper office mail slot.
Four games guaranteed (actually eight 4-end games, see below).
You will not go home hungry during this spiel! Lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and catered dinner on Saturday night, are included with your registration fee. Saturday dinner for non-participants is $15, and advance purchase is required.
The Juniors may be hosting a fundraiser breakfast on Sunday morning.
One free pitcher for every team. And a chance to win more free pitchers while playing on Saturday.
Start time is 8:30am Saturday and the bonspiel will be over by 1pm Sunday.
All teams will be scheduled for games on Saturday evening after dinner.
All participants should expect to be at the club all day Saturday and through 1pm on Sunday.
Eligibility, Sign up, & Teams
Eligible participants are GCC members who have curled for five years or less. This includes any years curling at other clubs. If you are in your 6th (or later) curling season, you are no longer eligible. If your first season started with GCC Spring Leagues, do not count that season in your total.
Entries will be limited to the first 60 individuals who register online and pay the fee. Spares/standbys are encouraged to sign up even if the bonspiel appears to be full, since cancellations do occur.
Although you may pay your fee prior to registering, you must both register through the Club website AND pay the fee for your registration to be complete.
This is an individual entry competition and the bonspiel organizer will form the teams. Please include details about your experience and regular league nights when you register.
For planning purposes, assume that you will not be curling with a spouse or significant other on the same team.
The sign-up deadline is February 15th and your entry fee must be received by this date.
Each team will curl four 4-end games, rotating positions for each game, to determine team ranking in three pools.
The teams in each of the three pools will then curl another four 4-end games to reach the prizes.
Spring Break! Get out your beach clothes, surfboards, flip flops, sunglasses, and suntan oil. More details are forthcoming.
