Five and Under BonspielsThe Grand National Curling Club (GNCC), the governing body for Eastern U.S. curling clubs including the Utica Curling Club, and the U.S. Women's Curling Association (USWCA), host bonspiels that are limited to curlers with 5 or fewer years of experience. These bonspiels are an ideal opportunity for new curlers to gain experience at positions other than lead or second, to put together and develop teams, and to meet other curlers of similar experience from other clubs. For many new curlers, the five-and-under events are often the first out-of-town bonspiel experience at which new lifelong curling friends are made.
