UPDATE (2017-10-09 9:05 pm EDT): We currently have registrations from 16 teams. We can accept additional registrations from visiting teams, but expect to close registration soon. Any additional local team registrations will be on the waiting list. If we have a surplus of local team registrations, we will allocate the available local team slot(s) by lottery, with the remainder assigned to the waiting list.
We are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Harvest, and looked back to 1977 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 look forward welcoming 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 hope glad that many teams will participate in that colorful tradition.
We aim 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) will have priority toward meeting that goal.
Please contact us if you have questions.
Please Note: 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.
Visiting Players: For your convenience, you can download, print, and complete the required Release Form (PDF) in advance, and bring it with you to the club. We need one completed form per player.
Recommended Hotels: There are several nearby hotels that provide special rates for those attending events at the Philadelphia Curling Club.
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.
