The Big Spiel is a charitable event supporting the TCCA and its mission.

Registration for the 7th Annual Big Spiel is now open for all teams. Sign up today to get your ticket to the circus! Returning teams must register by October 15 to claim their reserved spot. On October 16, any new teams that have already registered will fill returning team spots.

 Much like everything this year, registration for the 2021 Big Spiel will be different than previous years. We currently do not know what the COVID-19 situation will be in January 2021 and cannot guarantee the event will ultimately be held. So don’t book your plane tickets just yet! We plan to work within applicable state laws and regulations, and the guidelines of each participating club, to bring you the best possible event. Changes may include fewer teams, reduced venues, and limits on hospitality.

 With that in mind, we are asking returning teams and new teams who plan to participate in the 2021 Big Spiel to register today to reserve your team’s spot. You will not be prompted to pay at this time. On November 15, 2020, the Big Spiel committee will look at the number of teams registered for the Big Spiel and the current state of the pandemic before deciding to move forward with the event. At that point in time, we will announce our intentions & payment will be required to keep your spot.

 The Big Spiel may operate under a reduced number of teams this year. Because of this we strongly encourage you to talk with your teammates now about the Big Spiel & get registered! Ultimately the number of registrations by Nov 15 will dictate the size and ability to run the event. So sign up now to make sure you are among those with a spot.

 The Twin Cities Curling Association appreciates your understanding as we attempt to coordinate all these moving parts. If your team isn’t participating in 2021, we look forward to your return in 2022 and we’ll see you on the ice.

We have a three-step registration process:

1.  Register your team to hold your spot
2.  Wait until NOV 15th for notification on the size and status of the event
3.  After NOV 15th, pay to hold your team spot ($350 + $50 State Taxes & processing fee)

Simply click the register button to get started!

JR TEAM FEE: ($100 + $25 State Taxes & processing fee)  – (to qualify all 4 players must meet the USCA JR age requirement)

The Big Spiel™ will begin on Thursday, 1/14/2021. Actual draw times are TBD, but the first game will not start prior to 4PM. Some teams may not play until Friday… so we will do what we can to accommodate out-of-town teams with late arrival. All teams should be expected to play at least one game on Friday during the day. If you have special starting time requests, this must be emailed to TBS after your registration is confirmed. Draws will be held at all 4 clubs and teams should play in no less than 3 of the venues. The Semi & Finals for events 1-8 will be held at St. Paul on Sunday. 


In case you were not aware, the TCCA is a 501 c(3) organization and the The Big Spiel is a charitable event helping to fulfill the TCCA mission, which includes but is not limited to junior curling. If you have a company or organization that would like to aid in that mission or become a sponsor, please notify us at: mark@twincitiescurling.org
