Rock in the New Year with the Carleton Place Curling Club in our annual Learn to Curl Beginner Bonspiel!  That's right... If you're new to curling, currently in or just completed a learn to curl program... this bonspiel is for you!

Join us on Saturday, January 4th, 2020, for a day of fun and friendly play against other "newbies" and learn what bonspiels are all about!  This bonspiel is exclusively for first year participants in similar programs and has been designed to give new curlers a chance to experience what bonspiels are all about!

So put on some warm clothes... bring a clean pair of shoes... and 3 of your learn to curl friends and come put what you've learned to use!
