We hope you and your family are healthy during this COVID-19 crisis. Due to the current situation, we have decided to postpone registration until June 20. We’re still making plans as it feels good to look forward to a time we can again gather with old friends and meet new ones...will keep everyone posted.
Your Maine-iac Planners,
Karen, Sharon G., Sharon B., Joe, Sara, Meredith and Wendy
The 11th annual Maine-iac ’Spiel, at the Belfast Curling Club, will be held November 5th – 8th, 2020.
This is an open format bonspiel, any mix of gender in any order. $400 rink fee includes 3-5 games, all meals, 4 events with pins and prizes, and of course Larry (bronze lobster trophy) goes to the team who wins the whole shebang.
Games begin at 6:00 on Thursday and finals/awards will wrap up by 2:30 on Sunday.
Registration will open on Saturday April 18th. Registration will again be completed online. All registrations submitted online from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm on the 18th will be treated the same.
Based on past interest and ongoing inquiries, there will very likely be more teams than spots on the first day of registration, in which case we’ll use a lottery to determine entrants from all those submitted on the first day.
Just wanted to let you know that our story on the Belfast Curling Club will air on Maine Public Television this Saturday, 2/24,2018 at 2:25pm and 6:25pm. It will be a slightly abridged version because of time constraints in our TV schedule so I am also linking below to our Facebook page where the video is online now as well as our website. Both Facebook and the website will have the full story and will also be easily sharable to the rest of the club.
Thanks again for working with us on this story. I think it came out pretty well...I hope you all enjoy it!

Located on the outskirts of the Mid-coast Maine city of Belfast, we offer Mainers a chance to participate in a sport that is popular among all age groups. No experience necessary. Just be ready to have fun! Our season begins in November and carries through march.
We have a new Facebook Page! The official page for the Belfast Curling Club will be used to promote the club, and the sport of curling in general. This new page brings us in line with how other clubs promote themselves. The new page allows us to post as “The Belfast Curling Club” instead of under the poster’s name. It also allows people to SHARE our posts – great for Bonspiel flyers, allows us to schedule events so that they show on a calendar, allows people to message the page, and allows us to “Like” other club pages, amongst other things. The page will be fairly active, and hopefully will bring us more recognition. We hope it will help bring more people into the sport, make the club even healthier, and get clubs “from away” interested in our bonspiels. Please go “LIKE” the new page today – and stay tuned! Here’s the link:
The “old” page will become “The Belfast Curling Club CURLERS Group”. This is going to be a great resource for club members. The settings will be changed shortly so that any member of the group can post to it. POSTS MUST BE CURLING RELATED. This will be a place where you can post interesting curling videos or ask for curling advice. Want to try to get a pickup game going on a weekend? This will be a great place for that. Short on volunteers for one of our events? Ask for help here! Got some great pictures to share of your team at an away Bonspiel? Go for it! You get the idea - let’s make this an active and meaningful page. Please keep it clean and civil! Inappropriate posts will be deleted by the admins. Here is the link to the group, in case you aren’t already a member. If you AREN’T – ask to join today! If we see some great posts in this group, we will also share them on the official/main page.
