This weekend, I’m competing in (and DJing at!) a curling bonspiel*.
The inaugural bonspiel, which took place last January, was a resounding success. Over 100 people came together to curl for a cause, raising over $2000 for the Unison Benevolent Fund. This year is going to be even bigger!
* noun \ˈbän-ˌspēl\
A match or tournament between curling clubs.
Perhaps from Dutch bond league + spel game.
First known use: circa 1772
As one of the participating musicians, I was asked to film a short “curling tips” video for Citytv. You can watch by clicking here. Props to the staff who produced the videos – they look great!
