February 23 is Curling Day in Canada! Join us in celebrating our great sport by showcasing the game, the incredible people and our curling rinks that are key parts of the community:
To celebrate the great sport of curling across our country by showcasing the game, the incredible people and our curling rinks that are key parts of the community.
- To raise awareness, tell our story about being inclusive – anyone can play regardless of age or ability!
- To tell the story of the interesting things that happen every day in all rinks across Canada!
- Let’s also have some fun with one big game of curling including scores from every rink in Canada!
Canada-wide curling game
Through a Canada-wide curling game, clubs will have the chance to win a $10,000 grant for their club; separately each curling story (see below) submitted by a club will earn the club a ballot in a draw for a visit from the Tankard trophy, accompanied by three-time Brier Champions Nolan Thiessen and Jeff Stoughton!
We want to hear the interesting stories about curling rinks and the people who curl!
Curling Club Entries
For curling rink ‘entries’, submit photos of your front entrance with the rink’s name, photos of your warm area (lounge) and the ice area (preferably with people in the images). Then submit interesting in-house stories; for example: multiple generations of the same family curling; unique programming (such as glow in the dark); or any other neat things at your club. That might include outdoor curling, special curling days, funky warm areas, great volunteers, good eats, or any other innovation!
Send in your photos/videos by February 8, 2019, and your curling rink will be entered in a draw to host the legendary and iconic Brier Tankard Trophy on February 23 for the day. Additionally, the trophy will be accompanied by three-time Brier champions Nolan Thiessen and Jeff Stoughton!
Individual Curler Entries
This is for all Canadian curlers! Whether you’ve played all your life or you’ve played just once, if you have something neat or cool to share, we want to see it. Submit the images (photos or video) of you and/or your friends relating to curling. It can be outdoor curling on a river / lake / backyard; or, it could be a bonspiel theme you’ve participated in. Or other cool things? Use your imagination!
Each submission will earn the person sharing their story with us one (1) ballot to win an all-expenses-paid closing weekend trip for four people to the 2020 Tim Hortons Brier in Kingston, ON! (The prize will include transportation, two hotel rooms for four nights, and tickets for all games on the final four days.)
- There will also be five prizes of $500 drawn randomly from all individual curler entries!
