DOUBLE TAKE-OUT BALLOON CHALLENGE

Teams will compete to be the last team holding the double take-out balloon at the end of each round robin draw by removing two opposition stones in the house out of the playing field during their game. The winning team will receive either a $25 gift card to Stanley’s or a wingspan of raffle tickets ($25 value)!

We’re giving participants and/or any interested community members a chance to contribute towards this game within the game by becoming a draw sponsor. Sponsors will be acknowledged in the program and receive a shout-out at the beginning of their sponsored draw! (Note: In the event that no double take-outs are made in a draw or prizes are unclaimed, the value becomes a donation to SVCC.)

OPENING CEREMONY

Please join us on Friday evening at approximately 7:50 pm as we officially welcome all participants to our bonspiel and give thanks to our sponsors. Curlers will be “piped” onto the ice by celloist and SVCC member, Rohan Sikdar. It is also our great pleasure to have Katie Feldman, Wine Country Curling Club President and SVB participant, as our ceremonial first rock thrower. She will be accompanied by last year’s first-rock thrower, Jay Diamond, and SVB co-chairs Jennifer Asis and Sydney Jorgensen. SVCC President, Jeremy Malerich, will MC the ceremony. 

Learn more about Katie, her curling journey, and the wonderful impact she’s made on curling in Northern California and the MoPac (Mountain Pacific Curling Association) region in our program (coming soon).
