Randy Olson, President of Alberta Stick Curling is proud to announce the establishment of the Alberta Stick Curling Tour.
Alberta Stick Curling Association responsibilities:
- Publish Bonspiel on tour event page on albertastickcurling.ca website after approval that the club will meet their responsibilities.
- Publish Bonspiel on Alberta Stick Curling Championship Poster to be distributed to all curling clubs in Alberta.
- The team with the most points on Feb 1, 2024 will receive a free entry in to the Alberta Stick Curling Championships. During our first year of operation, the Stick Curling tour needs to have a minimum of six bonspiels registered to support this free entry. Hopefully, we will have many more.
- Maintain a list of teams and points awarded after each bonspiel. Teams only need to play in one bonspiel to be on the points list.
- Please contact Randy Olson, President of Alberta Stick Curling Association if your club is interested in hosting a bonspiel to be registered on the Alberta Stick Curling Tour.
