Each family will play two 4-end (one hour) games. Our theme this year will be Heavenly Bodies, Choose someplace to represent, it could be a planet, star constellation, moon, galaxy, nebula, quasar, whatever ya got.

Teams: Families must include four or more people.   At least two of them must be "kin", i.e., related by blood or marriage, but others may be "adopted" for the bonspiel.   Add as many people as you like and substitute freely during each game.    

ECC Membership NOT required.   Curling experience not required, either!   If any of your family members do not know how to curl, then contact us to arrange a lesson.


Behold the new-and-improved Family Bonspiel scoring system:  
  • You win 1 point for every stone that you score during a game
  • points for every end that you win
  • points for winning an entire game (1 point if you tie)


Individuals and couples can get into this spiel too! Just register yourself as an orphan, and we will try to find a family for you.
