For the entire day (February 22, 2020), we will collect the final score of as many games as possible played across the country.
Simply put, this big game will be the total scores for the teams on the top of the club’s scoreboard (regardless of colour) versus the teams on the bottom of the scoreboard (regardless of colour). It will be a Canada-wide game!
Clubs, leagues and spiels will be asked to send in their scores for every game played at their rink that day. For example, let’s say six games are played that day at Anytown Curling Club and the scores of the games are: 8-2 / 6-3 / 1-7 / 6-5 / 4-11 / 7-6. The score submitted to Curling Canada for the day would be 32 Top and 34 Bottom.
We are also asking each player on each sheet of ice to consider donating a loonie to Curling Canada’s philanthropic program. Our commitment to you, is that every dollar raised will be invested directly into our For the Love of Curling scholarships, for emerging student athletes across Canada. Using the example above, your club could collect and send $48 that would have a meaningful impact for our future curling champions.
These club contributions can be made one of two ways:
- By mail—send a cheque, payable to “Curling Canada”, to 1660 Vimont Court, Orleans, ON K4A 4J4 (note: to ensure your ballots are entered into the draw you must send an email notification with the cheque date and amount to firstname.lastname@example.org
- By online form—use the online form to make a credit card contribution.
Clubs do not have to create an event if they don’t want to. Use the games already scheduled for that day as your source of scores!
Every club that registers to the Canada-wide game and submits at least one set of scores will automatically have a ballot in the $10,000 renovation grant draw. While the collective impact of the generous contributions from each curler across the country will ensure that we are able to award another $25,000 in scholarships next year!
