Venerables Bonspiel Update

Eric Downer Stick FUNspiel

Thank you and Congratulations to the 41 curlers that took part in the Eric Downer Stick FUNspiel on Monday, March 6, 2023. By all accounts the participants had a great time and found using a stick to be both challenging and a lot of fun. The Chez Damiano, Ninth End Bar, and Tam Pro Shop Draw Prize Coupons that 26 of the 41 curlers won have already been used by some of the winners. A reminder that coupons are good until the end of this curling season. A new option of curlers sharing a position has now been used by some of our players who would rather play one 8 end game. To do this you just find another player who plays the same position, sign up in one box on the signup sheet and one plays the early game, has lunch, and one has lunch and plays the late game. The cash prize is then split between the 2 curlers.

Congratulations goes to the 2023 Eric Downer Stick Funspiel Championship TEAM HILLS with team members Don Hills, Ray Cockburn, Doug Best and Steve Rosen. Their team photo is posted on the tagboard and a shield has been engraved and put on the trophy in our Venerables trophy case.

Venerables Memorial Bonspiel

Our next Venerables Bonspiel will be the Memorial Bonspiel which will take place on Wednesday, April 12, 2023. This Bonspiel is in memory of all our Venerables Curling Club members who have passed away over the years. A special ceremony will be held to honour those who have passed away since our last Memorial Bonspiel.

At this Bonspiel your new Venerables Board of Directors for 2023 - 2024 will be introduced.

The Bonspiel will cost $25.00 per person and includes coffee, muffins, two 8 end games, lunch, cash prizes and a trophy presentation to the winning team. The sign up sheets for this Bonspiel will be put up on the tagboard from Tuesday, March 21st to Friday, March 31st. Don't forget you can sign up together with another curler if you would prefer to curl one game vs two games.

One last point is that we as a committee are always looking for your feedback, suggestions, and comments in an effort to make your Bonspiels reflect your needs and wants. All feedback from you as members will be discussed by our committee and you will receive a response.

Hope to see everyone at the upcoming Bonspiels!

Club Information

Tam Heather, or the “Tam” as we call it, is an active friendly club located in the Morningside and 401 community of Scarborough. Tam Heather opened in 1973 as a curling club with eight sheets of ice, then two years later in 1975, the club expanded by adding five tennis courts, three of which were covered in the winter with a bubble. Thirty four years later, in 2009, a four court year-round covered structure was built.
