In partnership with Carleton Place 200th, the Carleton Place Curling Club (CPCC) is set to kick off the 34th Annual Community Bonspiel on January 26-27, 2019. 

No curling experience is required! You only need some warm clothes and a clean pair of shoes... all other equipment (such as brooms, grippers, and sliders) is provided by the CPCC. This annual "FUNSPIEL" brings people together from:

  • local businesses;
  • community services;
  • schools;
  • churches;
  • families; and more.

There is no limit on the number of players to a team, however in the spirit of fairness and fun, we strongly recommend to limit your teams to no more than 2 "regular" curlers on the ice at a time. Teams can (and are encouraged to) change curlers at any time and as often as desired! All teams are guaranteed to play at least 3x 6-end games with many fantastic prizes at the conclusion of the bonspiel. The very popular theme basket will also be raffled.

This hugely popular family friendly community event fills up very fast so be sure to register your team A.S.A.P.! Registration includes:

  • morning refreshments,
  • dinner on Saturday evening (5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.),
  • live music Saturday night

Lunch will also be available on Saturday and Sunday, for a moderate fee.

Check out the Carleton Place 200th information booth at the bonspiel (or their Facebook page), for information on the town's bicentennial celebrations to be held throughout the year.

Members of the community are welcome to come join us Saturday evening for live music, beginning at 7:00 p.m.. There will be a nominal entrance fee of $5 for non-curlers.

Register early. Only 20 teams will be accepted. The early bird fee of $100 will apply if both your registration and payment are received by December 31, 2018. The fee will increase to $120 for teams that register and pay after this date.
