Apollo Curling Calgary – News

Last week’s registration for Calgary’s Western Cup bonspiel (March 28-30, 2024) was overwhelmingly successful, to the extent that we have decided to open up additional spots. The initial 32 spots were claimed within 15 minutes of registration becoming available. Consequently, we have expanded the tournament to accommodate 48 teams, encompassing all those on the waiting list.

As a result, there are currently 6 available spots for new teams. If your team has considered participating in Calgary but refrained due to the typical rapid filling of registration slots, now is the perfect opportunity!

For more information about the spiel and the registration process, please visit https://wc.leaguebuddy.ca/Curling.aspx.
