During the last few years curling events have been on hold or slow to return. No longer! Three upcoming tournaments show that regional events continues to appear on the horizon. The MoPac leadership is pleased to announce the latest two additions to the season: the MoPac Senior Bonspiel and the MoPac Mixed Doubles Championship.
On April 21-23, 2023, MoPac will be hosting the 5&Under at Denver Curling Club. As in past 5&U’s the focus is on curling camaraderie and the discovery of the ‘bonspiel mystique’ for those with less than 5 years of curling experience. At the same time a parallel event will be played at Denver. This event is strictly for curlers age 50 plus. Any years of curling experience are welcomed for these players.
A Seniors’ event has long been requested by players throughout the region. While not yet a Championship, this event if meant to help test the region’s ability to host a yearly senior’s event. We hope that giving age 50+ curlers a chance to play together will lead to greater interest not only in regional play but also in national and international senior competitions. Players can sign up as teams or as individuals who will be placed on a team. Registration opens March 20th at 3pm PDT. Register here.
In addition to the Senior Bonspiel, MoPac is bringing back the popular Mixed Doubles Championship. After a hiatus since 2019 the much loved event returns from May 19-21, 2023 at Coyotes Curling Club.
What is Mixed Doubles? Two players versus two players. The game uses five stones per end, and eight ends per game. The game is fast and thrilling. For those who play in mixed double leagues at their club, now is their chance to put their learned skills against those from other clubs in the region. The MoPac event is expected to fill up so if a team has an interest, they should consider signing up soon. Registration opens March 21st at 4pm PDT. Register here.
For these upcoming events it’s time to get your teams together, sign up and be ready to show off your skills!
