Atkins Curling Supplies Classic

 

 

 

Return to Play!   This Invitation is extended to your team for entry into the 2020 Atkins Curling Supplies Classic, October 23th- 25th, 2020

The bonspiel will feature a minimum of 8 Women’s and a minimum of 16 Men’s teams* with 4 qualifiers in the women’s section and 8 qualifiers in the men’s section. The Atkins Curling Supplies Classic will once again be affiliated with the Manitoba Curling Tour (MCT). Since the CTRS point system has been suspended due to the Covid 19 situation, teams will now play for a 100% prize payout and Provincial Berths for both women’s and men’s sections.   Since the size of the purse does not play into ranking or points, we have lowered the previous entry fee from $600 to $400 for the 2020 Classic.

Atkins Curling Supplies will remain the Title Sponsor, however due to the current business situation and the Covid 19 impact on small businesses, the bonspiel will not be seeking sponsorship funding from prior sponsors.   The sponsors that supported the bonspiel last season will be granted sponsorship advertising for this season at no charge. The Manitoba Curling Tour will graciously support and fund the “Berth Acceptance Fees” payable to CurlMb. Rob Atkins owner of Atkins Curling Supplies is proud to announce that the Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club will continue to be the host club of the Atkins Curling Classic.

A message from AMCC:

 Club President Ken Onagi, the Board Of Directors, staff and AMCC membership are pleased to, once again, host the Atkins Classic.  We will work closely with Rob in an effort to deliver a first class, safe Event in spite of these decidedly turbulent times. You are strongly encouraged to visit the club website, click on http://keepcurling.curlamcc.com to gain an appreciation of our Return To Curling Protocols (particularly as concerns mandatory wearing of a face mask throughout the facility and possibly the ice shed).  Matt and his hardworking ice crew will provide a great surface while bar and restaurant staff will deliver first rate food and beverage service.
