News & Updates

DOODLESPIEL 2018! The 46th annual 2018 Doodlespiel has now come and gone and this year we had 64 teams with over 300 participants. The town of Banff, the Banff Curling Club, and the Best of Banff company once again created an amazing venue for the Doodlespiel that was enjoyed by all. The A event final had the Brack rink against the Olson rink.  In the end the Brack rink consisting of, Jim Brack, Dale Johnson, Dave Cryer, Bill Campbell, and Mike Langois won the A event…..Congratulations Team Brack on winning back to back Doodlespiels!!  Other event winners include: B Event = Kevin Mullie, Rob Curts, Launey Newel, Greg Groten.  C Event = Wade Whitlow, Calvin Wall, Toger Bilger, Noel Leach.  D Event = Sandy Jenkins, Scott Law, Jeff Deere, Andrew Boland, Scott Leaney.  Team Spirit best costume awards go to: 1st Place = “Wrestle Mania Wrestlers” – Team Ohler. Well Done!!

This year we held a charity raffle once again with all proceeds going to the CSEG Foundation "In the Rings" Scholarship Fund.  With everyone's amazing generosity we raised over $2000 from the raffle. And once again, Larry Herd has generously matched all proceeds towards the fund, bringing us to a grand total of over $4000! Thank you Larry!

As Chairman of the 2018 Doodlespiel, I would like to take the opportunity to Thank ALL of our sponsors especially to our Title Sponsors, SEITEL and EXPLOR….we could not do it without you!!  THANK YOU!!

Without the continued support of the industry, this great event would not be able to continue. Sponsorship and overwhelming participation of our industry continue to make this one of the largest curling bonspiels in Western Canada. As outgoing Chairman I am confident that next year's Doodlespiel committee will no doubt deliver another excellent event. On behalf of the entire committee, THANK YOU and we look forward to seeing everyone back in Banff for 2019.
