Have you ever dreamed of playing in the Olympic Team Trials? Well, this fall you can experience something close to it as part of the Big O Bonspiel.

The Aksarben Curling Club is hosting The Big O Bonspiel, a series of six, three-game bonspiels during the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Curling this November in Omaha, Neb. There is space for 10 teams in each bonspiel.

The Big-O Bonspiel draws will be played on Baxter Arena's second ice rink, Holland Ice, which is home to the Aksarben CC. The action will take place in between Olympics Trials competition draws so you won't miss any Trials action. And, if that's not cool enough, each of the six sessions' A-Event finals will be played on the Trials ice at Baxter Arena.*

Here is a look at the proposed schedule for the bonspiels:
Sessions 1 and 2:      Nov. 10-11
Sessions 3, 4, 5:        Nov. 12-15
Session 6:                  Nov. 16-18 

Get the word out to your club members right away as spots will fill up fast! You can sign up and pay online here ($50 per person).

* We will make every effort to ensure main ice availability for A-Event finals, but Trials competition schedule conflicts or ice conditions may arise which require some A-Event finals to be played on the community sheet with the other event finals.
