Hi Kurl for Kids Family,

I hope this post finds you all and your’s in good health.
While the current situation in the world is still looking bleak I remain optimistic and hope that we will still be able to get together in 2020 for the 31st Annual Kurl for Kids Charityspiel.
With that in mind your Kurl for Kids Committee has been hard at work reorganizing the event and modifying it slightly.  We are currently looking to run the event August 21st to 22nd at the Oakville Curling Club and staying at the Holiday Inn as usual.  Exact details are still to be finalized however we are looking at having a shorter banquet and skip selection Friday night (at the Curling Club) with everyone curling their first game Friday night.  Games will continue Saturday along with the finals.
We’re hoping that everyone is able to still make it and those that couldn’t make it in April can now make it in August.
Next steps…
1. For those of you already registered who would like to play August 21-22nd, you’re all set.  No need to do anything.
2. For those of you that would like to play in August and are not currently registered please visit www.kurlforkids.com/register to register for August (we’ll invoice you closer to the event).
3. For those of you have can’t make it this year you have three options
a.  Sign up for the 2021 (32nd Annual) Kurl for Kids and we’ll apply your entry fee for next year (email registration@kurlforkids.com to request this)
b.  Donate in full or part your registration to the OHF or SSF (email registration@kurlforkids.comexecutivedirector@kurlforkids.com  to request this)
c.  For those that would like a refund, full refunds will be available upon request. Please email registration@kurlforkids.com.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this summer for what is looking to be one of the best Kurl for Kids ever!  Updated skip list will be on www.kurlforkids.com as usual along with an updated Schedule of Events for the weekend.
Regards,
Bill Garner

Update: Kurl for Kids April 2020 – Postponed

By Event details

Hi Everyone,

With the global, national and local situation concerning Covid-19, we are no longer able to host the 31st Annual Kurl for Kids Charityspiel on Easter weekend this year.  After a very productive virtual meeting, we have decided as a committee to postpone the event at this time, rather than cancel it altogether.  We have already begun working on new dates later in 2020 when we can run a version of this event worthy of its traditional form.  Please hold your questions at this time until we have had the opportunity to come up with firm details.  Please note that it is our intent to offer full refunds to those that can’t make it to the new date.
Thank you for your patience during this stressful time.  On behalf of the committee, we want to extend our wishes of good health to all participants and their families as we stand together in solidarity.

WYNTK about the #29thK4K

By Event details

In preparation for the start of the #29thK4K, we wanted to give you the 411 on what you need to know (WYNTK) about the various events happening throughout the weekend.

The Hospitality Suite

To get entrance into the infamous hospitality suite, you need to purchase a bracelet. This beautiful piece of jewellery (aka a red paper band) is available for just $20 CAD – trust us, it is worth it!

Payment can be made when you get to the registration table on Thursday night (debit and credit accepted). If you aren’t attending the banquet but need a bracelet, let someone from the committee know.

Don’t Forget – Friday is country night!

The Passports

As with last year, the passports are available again this year! For those of you who don’t know, the passport is your all access pass to the additional games.

Your passport includes:

  • A registration for the draw to the button competition
  • Raffle tickets (x20)
  • X5 “Pick 6” selections

You can pay in debit, credit or cash at the registration desk for the passport or, should you choose to forego the passport, you can purchase tickets to each of these games individually.

The Draw to the Button Competition

It’s exactly as it sounds! You draw to the button against the other Joes & Janes for the ultimate prize. The winner of the Joes & Janes draw to the button wins THE CASH (from the entries) and 1 week accommodation at Stu Sell’s vacation home in Florida (more details will be provided at the event).

Now, the winner of the Joes & Janes draw to the button also gets to compete against the Pros draw to the button winner. This is for honour only.

The Raffle

The raffle table runs FRIDAY ONLY. Don’t miss out on some great things because you got it confused with the silent auction. You can’t bid your way to a win this day.

The silent auction

The silent auction runs SATURDAY ONLY. Same as above, don’t mix it up with the raffle items, more money gets you what you want this day!
