Curling Bonspiel

Curling Craze Draws Biggest Ever, 40 Teams to Annual Labor Day Bonspiel

Wine Country Curling Club’s (WCCC) signature bonspiel, CRUSH 2018, just got bigger. Lots bigger!

The Labor Day Weekend event drew its largest ever team registration with 40 teams entered.

WCCC President Katie Feldman conveyed her enthusiasm and excitement for this bonspiel, “We’re sold out with a waiting list and it’s all because of that Gold Medal won by Team Shuster in the 2018 Winter Olympics!”

Placer Valley Tourism is thrilled to be teaming up with them again for this fantastic three-day event that showcases local, international, and Olympic curlers and even a youth team at Skatetown Ice Arena in Roseville. A full list of competing teams is available on the WCCC website.

“Of the 40 teams that are registered, at least six of them have brand new curlers on them,” elaborated Feldman. “That’s exciting for our sport and shows just how great the sport of curling is at all levels!”

Feldman was excited to share that five teams from Canada will be competing.

And both Debbie McCormick and Edith Loudon Hazard are also returning.
