"Pick Up Sticks" Bonspiel w/ the PVA

"Pick Up Sticks" Bonspiel w/ the PVA

Windy City Curling is honored to partner with Paralyzed Veterans of America to host Pick Up Sticks - a "delivery stick-only bonspiel!

This will be done in an "up-and-down" format, meaning a three curlers will team-up with one wheelchair athlete.

FORMAT: Open (teams can be any mix/order of players), every team will have one wheelchair curler.

COST: $100/Player (PVA Wheelchair Curlers play for Free)

Register as an Individual, Duo, Trio, or Full team! We'll match up wheelchair curlers and help form teams before the bonspiel.
NOTE: Individuals looking to register together should click on the "Group" option and enter "2", "3", or "4" in the registration process so we know who to keep together on the ice.

  • Any wheelchair curlers eliminated on Saturday may recombine and play two pick-up games at 9:00am and 11:30am on Sunday.

Registration is now open for Individual curlers and teams!

If you are coming with other players, you'll still have to sign-up individually. Please let us know who they are in the "Notes to the Club" section of your registration, and we'll make sure you're teamed up accordingly.

WHAT'S INCLUDED: Your registration includes a 3-game guarantee, Saturday afternoon music, a Charity fundraiser, drinks & food all weekend, and the Windy City Curling hospitality which our club has built its reputation on.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Your Saturday entertainment will be Timmay and Jimmay, an acoustic duo from the northern Illinois sticks (see what we did there?). They're looking to shine in the 'burbs from Noon to 3:00pm.

FYI: Our bonspiel follows the American tradition of playing for Pins (and not money). Instead of offering event winners a cut of a cash prize pool, we instead will be keeping a cooler stocked with a great selection of alcoholic beverages (beer and seltzers), non-alcoholic drinks, and water all weekend long.

In addition, Windy City offers full Meals (lunch and dinner) throughout the weekend, along with some fun snacks. See? Everyone wins, regardless of how they perform on the ice.

The event will also feature an opportunity to bid on silent auction items.

Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members – veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.

PVA will use that expertise to be the leading advocate for:

  • Quality health care for our members,
  • Research and education addressing spinal cord injury and dysfunction,
  • Benefits available as a result of our members' military service,
  • Civil rights and opportunities that maximize the independence of our members.

To enable Paralyzed Veterans to continue to honor this commitment, we must recruit and retain members with the experience, energy, dedication, and passion necessary to manage the organization and ensure adequate resources to sustain the programs essential for Paralyzed Veterans of America to achieve its mission.

Can I stop by the club, enjoy the entertainment, and bid on silent auction items?
Absolutely! Your energy and money are going to two great organizations.

Are there going to be draws on Friday night?
Yep! We're hoping to have 12 teams, which should fill draws on Friday evening and all-day Saturday (with the playoffs on Sunday). So if you're coming in from out-of-town, DON'T WORRY! Please request that you'd like to NOT have a draw on Friday evening.
