The Ironman Outdoor Curling Bonspiel presented by your local Subaru Dealerships is a not for profit event raising money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation and is held each year in February on the river at The Forks in Winnipeg Manitoba.
The bonspiel is a fun weekend event for both men and women, young and old. The entry fee is $160 (as of the 2013 event). From that $160, $60 goes towards the cost of running the event (insurance, rentals, etc) and approximately $100 (dependent on operational costs) goes to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Additional donations are also accepted and added to your charitable receipt which is issued after the event. Tax receipts are issued by Heart and Stroke Foundation for anything donations $20.00.
The bonspiel is the largest outdoor curling bonspiel in Canada. Over the past 16 years we have raised over $91,000.00 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We continue to grow each year. We now curl on the Red River at the Forks on ten sheets of ice. Our goal is to have over 100 curling teams. Get your friends and family together to put in a team in this truly Winnipeg event.
Curling outdoors on the river is a unique experience. Participants from all over North America have come to our FUN-raiser event to experience what outdoor curling was like not so many years ago (before indoor curling rinks were created to extend the curling season), and to experience the friendly atmosphere Winnipeg is so well known for.
