Bonspiel Information

Western Cup XL runs March 28–31, 2024.

 

The Western Cup XL Curling bonspiel is hosted by Apollo Curling and will run over three days, beginning 7:00pm on Thursday, March 28. Social events at the curling rink are being organized for Thursday and Friday evenings, and all athletes are welcome at all other Western Cup XL events.

 

The following morning, the bonspiel resumes at 9:00am.

 

Finals take place on Saturday, March 30: C & D Quarterfinals start at 9:00am; A & B Quarterfinals start at 11:15am. Semifinals begin at 2:00pm; Finals begin at 5:00pm.

Some teams will play games at both rinks, while some may only play at one. However, all organized social events will be held at the Calgary Curling Club. There will typically be 16 teams at North Hill and 32 teams at the Calgary Club. All finals on Saturday afternoon will take place at the Calgary Club. Except for the finals, the general rule will be that if your first game of the day is at one rink, all your games that day will be at that rink.
 

There will be a guaranteed 4 games (three 6 ends and at least one 8 ends). To maintain game schedules, buzzers will be utilized.

This bonspiel, and all Western Cup XL events, is hosted by members and allies of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and is a safe space for all people. There is zero tolerance for discrimination.

 

Registration Information

 

Registration fee (per 4-person team): $480
