Bonspiel season heats up on ice

Broughton Curling Club to host Ladies Open bonspiel Saturday and Sunday in Port McNeill.

Broughton Curling Club this weekend will kick off the heart of the North Island’s bonspiel season — with four events in the span of a month— with its annual Ladies Open bonspiel Saturday and Sunday in Port McNeill.

The event will be followed by the Fort Rupert Curling Club’s mixed open bonspiel Jan. 24-26, the Port Alice Curling Club mixed open — its first in four years — Jan. 31-Feb. 2, and, completing the cycle back in Port McNeill, the Broughton mixed open Feb. 14-16.

Each bonspiel is still welcoming teams to enter. They feature open lounges, concession and dinners for participants, as well as traditional prize draws and awards ceremonies.

For registration and contact info, visit the Facebook pages off all three North Island clubs — Broughton Curling Club, Fort Rupert Curling Club and Port Alice Curling Club.
