The Funspiel Finals take place on Sunday 22rd March at Braehead Curling. The Funspiel Finals is competed for by 1 Representative Team from each region, in the under 13 and under 15 age group. This one day event brings together four members of the same RCCC Junior Club who will play a round-robin consisting of 3 x 4 end games to determine the overall winner of each age group. Prizes will be presented to the winning teams in each age category.
In addition to the competition a fun ‘Hotshots’ event will take place in which each team member will attempt a ‘Draw shot’ and ‘Strike Out’ challenge. Each team will select a member of their team to play a ‘Golden Draw Shot’ for bonus points and another team member to play a ‘Golden Strike Out’ for bonus points.
