The inagural Bluenose Bonspiel was held over Labour Day week-end in 2010. 24 teams embarked on Halifax to be met with unseasonable high temperatures (feel-like 40C+) and a visit from Hurrican Earl. Through power outages, rearranged social events and a condensed draw schedule the event was a success.
In 2013 the Bluenose Bonspiel was thrilled to host the Canadian Gay Curling Championships. In true Maritime fashion, the event was not only about curling, but great social events, good times, and lasting memories… and maybe a beer or two!
