Winnipeg is once again hosting the annual 2009 Bison Bonspiel on February 13-15, 2009 at the Granite Curling club.
The early bird deadline is this Thursday, January 15th. Payments and forms that are post marked the 15th or sooner save $5 a person!
If anyone is interested in curling in the bonspiel but doesn’t have a team to curl with, please contact Theresa with the Keystone Curling League. She has a couple of teams looking for 4th players and she would be happy to forward your name along.
The registration form is available from our site and the fee is $40 cheaper per team if you get your payment in by January 15, 2009. Fore more information, see the National Bonspiel News.
As the league continues to grow in popularity, it is important for us to determine as early as possible how many of you will be returning to the Rainbow Rockers for the 2008-2009 season. As a result, we are instituting an advance registration requirement for all returning members. To secure your place for 2008-2009, a $50 deposit will be required for each curler ($200 per team) by April 13, 2008.
You may register as teams or as individuals. Teams will not be formed until later in the summer, so if you are not sure of your team or would like to be placed on a team, you must still register in advance to hold your spot. The remaining balance will be due in September.
Membership registration forms for next the next curling season (2008/2009) for the Rainbow Rockers Curling League are now available online, in both Microsoft Word ® and Adobe Acrobat ® format. You can download the forms and fill them in now. Copies will also be available at the club at next curling game on April 6th or at the closing banquet on April 13th.
Please return your signed forms and a $50 deposit to either the club president (Colin) or the membership coordinator (Kevin). You may e-mail an electronic copy of the completed form to the webmaster, but your registration is not considered complete until the form is signed and the $50 deposit has been paid.
Forms for spares area also available for download in both Microsoft Word ® and Adobe Acrobat ® format.
If you have any questions about registration, please get in touch with either Colin or Kevin.
The World Out Games will be holding a competitive curling tournament next year in Copenhagen.
