MoPac Open Bonspiel in Missoula, Montana March 27-29, 2015. They would love to have as many MoPac member club teams participate as possible.
The event is being designed for 60 teams (4 matches guaranteed) total, with competition occurring on 2 sheets of arena ice with 5 sheets of curling ice on each. This will be occurring at the Glacier Ice Rink with one indoor arena and one covered outdoor arena. (we are working toward dedicated in the future however)
The MoPac Open will have two brackets, one MoPac, where all teams must be members of MoPac, and the other bracket will be an “at large” bracket with invitations going out to all clubs in the western U.S. and Canada for participation in that bracket. Metals or trophies will be awarded for the top teams in MoPac and a MoPac open champion crowned , as well as the top teams in the “at large” bracket. Then the top 2 teams in each bracket will compete for the overall Big Sky Spiel Championship.
Concurrently they will hold a Big Sky Games 5-and-under open Spiel for those teams with 5 or less years of experience. MoPac membership for this event is not required.
