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?

Bras d'Or Lakes Stick Spiel

January 15, 2022


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!

The Blarney Stone,

Ladies Invitational Bonspiel

March 12, 2022

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

April 2, 2022

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.
