1949 Goodwill Bonspiel Pin - Toronto


    I am sending this on behalf of the House of Curling Pins, a website set up by and for curling pin collectors, whose primary objective is creating a comprehensive Curling Pin reference site for collectors. The website URL is https://houseofcurlingpins.com/index.html should you wish to check it out.

    I am asking for some help in identifying a pin on the site so that it can be put in the proper place on the site. I have attached a photo of the pin for reference. It has "1949 Goodwill Bonspiel Toronto" printed on it. Having done some on-line research, I have seen that there is no direct information on a Goodwill Bonspiel.

    So, I am sending an email to Toronto area clubs which may have hosted this bonspiel, which is why I am forwarding this to you.

    I am wondering if The Tam Heather Curling Club has a Librarian, Historian, or even an old curler, who has some knowledge of pins issued by your club/organization who might be able to advise if this pin is a version of a pin issued for a club or corporate bonspiel.

    Any information that can be supplied for the pin would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

    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.
