Glow in the Dark Spiel

January 18, 2020

About this event

This is a fun, open event where you have a team of 4 players. Unlike traditional curling, the ice area and viewing area is completely blacked out with the only lighting coming from black lights in the ceiling. There is special glowing materials in the ice and on the rocks so you can see them in the black light. Glowing costumes are encouraged!

History: Who turned out the lights?

This event was started 8 years ago by one of our members, John Gregory, based on information from a club in Saskatchewan. Since our event began, the Elora club also runs a similar event based on information provided by John. For the past 5 years this event has been sponsored by Dave Besley of Royal Lepage.

Shaw and Begg Spiel

February 22, 2020

About this event

This event is our club's premier competitions. The title event is a men's competition, and the other draw, the Crewson Insurance event, is a Senior Men's competition.

History: A name that lasts

The Shaw and Begg Bonspiel was started by Harold McGhee decades ago with support from Shaw and Begg which were an insurance company that provided insurance products in Harold’s office at the time.  Shaw and Begg actually had a country retreat, fishing spot in Mulmur Township for years. 

The Shaw and Begg Insurance company eventually changed names to Fireman’s Fund Insurance company in the 60’s, which then became Wellington Insurance and then Wellington was purchased by Allianz in the mid 90’s.  It is pretty unique to think that the club has maintained the name of the Spiel for so many decades considering the company had been sold 50 years ago! The event began in 1964 and the senior event began in 1995 and is currently sponsored by Crewson Insurance.
