noun  bon·spiel   \ˈbän-ˌspēl\    
Bonspiel – curling talk for a tournament.

There are numerous “spiels” at Curl Mesabi:

  • Some are sponsored by Curl Mesabi.
  • Some are sponsored by outside groups.
  • Some are just for “fun”.
  • Some are fund raisers for local charities.
  • Some are highly competitive – you can watch Olympic athletes from around the world…right here in Eveleth, MN!
  • Click on the links below for more information.
  • Most of the bonspiels are “open” unless otherwise noted as men’s, women’s, junior’s or mixed. Open means the team can be any
    combination of men or women, playing in any position.
