Bonspiels

Yearly Regular Season Events



To honour the memory of one of our long time members, Gerry Fournier who passed away in December 2015, and to help your Club raise funds to help financially, we are organizing a fund raising curling event open to all Glenmore curling members (Daytime and Nighttime).

The format will be a Skins Competition to be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018. Our goal is to raise $2,000 from this event, based on a 96 curler sign-up (24 teams). A committee will make-up the teams using a combination of Day and Nighttime Curlers on each team. There will be 3 draws, the first starting at 9:00 AM., the second starting at 12:00 PM., and the third starting at 3:00 PM. The cost of this event is $30 per curler and will include 3 half and half tickets and a pizza & spaghetti meal at 6:00 PM.

There will be one winning team per round (3 rounds), each team receiving $200 cash. Snacks will be served to the curlers after their game.

Opening bonspiel will be held on Saturday, November 24, 2018.

Organizers: Gail Moorcroft and Marcel Bastien

The traditional Grand Match and Grande Dame are scheduled for Saturday November 17, 2018.

– Grand Match (Men) – The participation requirement is that each club must register a minimum of 2 teams per ice sheet of the club (to a maximum of 4 sheets). Extra teams will be counted for bonus participation points.

– Grande Dame (Women) – The participation requirement is that each club must register a minimum of 2 teams per club. Extra teams will be counted for bonus participation points.

The games are full 10-ends each. Brooms are stacked after 5 ends. An ideal way to introduce new curlers to competition in a friendly atmosphere!

The games will be played at ARCM member clubs.
