National Women's Bonspiel 2021

"Curl Madison, A Capitol Idea"

USWCA National Bonspiel, Host Madison Curling Club, McFarland, Wisconsin

When: Cancelled

(The 73rd Annual bonspiel is being postponed and will be held in Utica.)

(July 25, 2020) by Beth Lepping, USWCA President

It is with heavy heart that the USWCA 2021 Winter Meeting and National Bonspiel in Madison, Wisconsin, are cancelled. Again, situations beyond the control of the USWCA have necessitated this outcome, as it is the decision of the Madison Curling Club Board of Directors not to host any bonspiels for the 2020-21 curling season.  Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases here in Dane County, across Wisconsin and the country, uncertainty regarding how long the virus's threat will last, length of government-mandated restrictions on mass gatherings, lack of timely and sufficient testing, and inconsistent compliance with safety measures, this is clearly the responsible choice.

The goal has always been to safely provide the opportunity to meet, curl, make and renew friendships.  With our members spread across the country, our meetings and bonspiels are often the only opportunities each year we physically connect, which makes cancelling that much more painful.  That being said, during these unprecedented times, our most essential responsibility is to keep everyone safe and healthy,  In the meantime, we'll see each other virtually, adapt were we can, and look forward to the 2021-22 curling season when we once again will all be together.
