Human Bonspiel 2019 at Olympic Plaza will have YOU curling down the ice

Jan 29 2019, 12:58 am

You’ve tried tubing, you’ve tried curling – now how about combining the two at the Human Bonspiel? This is basically the love child of riding that tube and sliding those stones.

The aim is to get the stone as close to the centre target as possible (much like curling) but the stones are actually tubes, and the competitors are, you guessed it, on those tubes.

Anyone hoping to try their hand at this new take on an old sport can sign up for the Calgary Corporation Challenge event being held this February at Olympic Plaza.

You and your team of four will compete with other sliders to make it into the finals, with the competition taking place during lunchtimes from February 25 to March 1, and finals on March 4.

Human Bonspiel at Olympic Plaza (Calgary Corporate Challenge)

Registration costs $200 per team of four, meaning it’s just $50 to sign up per person, and a portion of the proceeds will be going towards KidSport Calgary.

Sign in starts at 11:30 am, and teams will get some time to practice their sliding. The top five teams of each day will then compete in a “slide-off” to make it into the finals, which will be held on March 4. And no, there are no gigantic brooms to deal with! But you’d still better hurry hard!
