One of the most social things we do is a bonspiel.
A day of curling, eating, visiting, and, yes, even drinking...
what could be better?

Celebrate Christmas by winning a turkey!
We know its a busy time of year, so new teams will be made each night. Sign up for 1, 2 or all 3 nights. You must curl at least two nights for a chance at the turkey.

Bras d'Or Lakes Stick Spiel
January 11, 2020
Stick curling is a skill.
All curlers can do it. Not all can do it well.
Plus, with two person teams,
there are no sweepers to blame!

Silver Dart Bonspiel

Celebrate 111 years of flight in Canada by throwing rocks at a house! This bonspiel previously was called the Commercial Spiel, and before that, I think it was the Men's spiel!

The Blarney Stone,
Ladies Invitational Bonspiel
March 14 & 15, 2020
Four ladies went curling for fun
And wished that they could have won one.
They came to Baddeck
Couldn't curl worth a heck
And settled instead for the rum!

Hal Norton Closing Bonspiel
Its a long seven months before curling will start again.
Might as well get as much in while we can!
A day filled of curling can do just the trick!
The plant will be turned off after the bonspiel until next year.
