red-curling-rockThe Scott Tournament of Hearts has just crowned its Canadian women’s champions and The Briar is about to anoint the best of the country’s men’s curlers.

But on Saturday (Feb. 28) all eyes will be fixed on the Burlington Golf and Country Club where six rinks representing clubs from Southern Ontario will draw brooms in a one-draw Little Rocks Goodbye Winter Bonspiel. These rock stars are between the ages of 8 and 12 and will be piped on to the ice at 9:15 a.m. to begin play in their six-end games.

The day’s activities fun, food and awards for the players, pride for the parents and action-packed curling for spectators.

Participating rinks include Hamilton Victoria Curling Club, Oakville Curling Club, Glanford Curling Club, Brant Curling Club, Grimsby Curling Club, and Chinguacousy Curling Club.
