2017 Harvest Mixed Bonspiel
We celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Harvest, and looked back to 1977–78 for inspiration in choosing a theme. We found quite a few enduring things that happened that year, among them the release of the iconic movie Saturday Night Fever, and its memorable theme song "Stayin' Alive" and decided that would serve us well as our theme.
We were pleased to welcome both old and new friends for the traditional festivities and some great curling. We have come to expect some very imaginative costumes that reflect creative interpretations of the bonspiel theme, and were glad that many teams participated in that colorful tradition.
We expect to have the well-stocked mobile showroom from Brooms Up Curling Supplies open just outside the club on Saturday 18 November from 11 am until approximately 7 pm.
About the bonspiel
This year's event is on November 17th – 19th, 2017. We accept 16 teams. The cost is $320 per team. All meals are included. The bonspiel has four events and each team has a three game guarantee. Team must be a traditional mixed team format (two men and two women, alternating genders in the four player positions). The games begin at 7 pm on Thursday and concludes Sunday afternoon.
For your convenience, you can download, print, and complete the required Release Form in advance, and bring it with you to the club. We need one completed form per player. There are several nearby hotels that provide special rates for those attending events at the Philadelphia Curling Club.
We aimed to have a majority of visiting players, with twelve visiting teams and four local teams (or the equivalent) as a target. Registrations from visiting teams (two or more players who are not members of Philadelphia Curling Club) had priority toward meeting that goal.
Registrations are automatically time-stamped upon submission, but are not complete until payment is received. Online payments are accepted via PayPal and are immediate. A 3% convenience fee is added on the PayPal payment page. Checks received within one week of registration date are equivalent to online payments.
