A Wee Biteen O’ History of the Shamrock Bonspiel
Curlers have been competing in Montreal West’s Shamrock Bonspiel to win the unique curling stone trophy for about 40 years. It is said that the stone on the trophy was one saved in 1964 when our club burned down. In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s the club’s big bonspiel was first called the Rodeo Roundup, then the Fishermen’s Fling for a couple more years. As it takes place in March around the same time St. Patrick’s Day festivities are held, the club settled on the name of the Shamrock Bonspiel. It was THE bonspiel of the year starting in the mid 1970’s. To read more of the history open up this link: Shamrock History
