Chicago is the defending champion
in the 71st-ish year of this premier event for new curlers
What: The Dar Curtis began in 1947. It is the oldest statewide competition in Illinois. The Dar Curtis allows newer curlers a chance to compete with their peers and try out their own strategies in a fun, club-based environment. The 2017 Dar Curtis is sponsored by the Illinois Curling Association. Pins will be awarded to the winners and runners up of up to four events.
Who is eligible: Traditionally, Dar Curtis competitors have curled less than five full curling seasons. They are usually twos and leads, or new vice skips. Longer-term curlers who are twos and leads may also compete. Both men and women are eligible to compete on men’s, women’s or open teams. There are no restrictions on the gender order of the teams. Ideally, all curlers would be from the same club. This requirement may be relaxed in the interest of broader participation.
When, where, and format: The competition will be held at Chicago Club on Saturday, February 18th, and Sunday, February 19th & will be run as a 4-event bonspiel. Limited to the first 16 teams who sign-up.
Cost: There is no entry fee. Participants are responsible for their own food and beverage costs.
Entry procedure: Enter as a full team or as individuals. Deadline Sunday, February 12th to enter through the website.
