Local Bonspiels

Take Curling to the Next Level of Fun!

Below is some information and announcements regarding some of the upcoming and popular bonspiels within the GNCC, our local regional governing body for curling. Please note that this is an incomplete list and does not usually include bonspiels hosted by clubs outside of the GNCC. For a complete up-to-date listing of scheduled bonspiels, please visit either the GNCC Calendar page or the USCA Calendar page. As curling continues to increase in popularity, many bonspiels are filling up much more quickly than in the past. To help ensure that your team is accepted into an event, be sure to submit your entry form as early as possible. Then hit the road with some friends and really take curling to the next level of fun!

Other Major Events

The 2024 Annual GNCC Arena Club Championship will be hosted by the Ocean State Curling Club from June 6-9, 2024 at Providence College's Schneider Arena in Providence, RI. 

Note: The GNCC Arena Championship is typically a very popular event and the GNCC limits entries per club to ensure that every arena curling club within the GNCC has an opportunity to participate. Because of this, OSCC has adopted a team/participant selection process. Details of the selection process can be found in the Member's Area of the website. The selection process will begin as soon as more details about the GNCC Arena Championships are available. Club members will be contacted by email and invited to participate once the selection process begins. If you are interested in participating in the GNCC Arena Championship, please review the selection process rules first.
