Special Olympics Curling requires strategy, physical ability and a true team effort. Athletes work in teams of four in an attempt to place their rocks closest to the centre of a series of four rings called the house. The team with the most number of stones closest to the center is awarded points accordingly. Teams typically play eight ends and the team with the most points at the end is declared the winner.
Funspiels are fundraising events, arranged occasionally by SOBC Burnaby for coaches, volunteers, parents, family members, and friends of Special Olympians. They provide an opportunity for everyone to get together to get to know one another better, and to help support our local SO chapter financially. Some of our Special Olympians may make an appearance at the funspiels to round out the curling teams and show us how the game is played properly.
