The 2018 Rotary District Bonspiel Committee stands ready to help form teams from such individuals.  If you think you might like to participate in this event (details at please email Brian Thompson ( with your name, Club name, preferred position (if any) and years of curling experience (if any).  We will do our best to match you up with other individuals so you can join a team and participate in the Bonspiel.
We look forward to seeing many of you at our opening Reception/Registration at the Thistle Curling Club in Edmonton on Thursday evening, February 22, 2018.  Actual curling will commence on Friday morning and the four event finals will happen on Sunday afternoon.  Friday night and Saturday night social events will occur at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Centre.
