Lupus Spiel, May 4-6 (Four Seasons)
A message from our friends at Fogerty Arena Four Seasons Curling Club:
Hello Chaska Curlers! We would like to let you know about Lupus Spiel USA, the largest charity curling Professional-Amateur bonspiel in the U.S.
It is May 4-6 at Fogerty Arena Four Seasons Curling Club in Blaine.
The organizer, Regan Birr, has lupus. Together with her husband, Todd Birr, they've created the Lupus Research Foundation, which hosts the spiel. The spiel supports the LRF mission to help find a cure for lupus by raising funds for lupus research and by raising awareness.
The LRF is a tax-exempt (501c3) non profit organization so your contribution is tax-deductible.
How it works: Olympic and National-Champion curlers are paired up with amateur curlers of ANY skill level. There is a 3-game guarantee, with fun games and prizes. You pay an entry fee, and then raise money to be able to pick your skip. ALL THE TOOLS for fundraising are on our website, www.letscurelupus.org. You can sign up as an individual, pair, or team of 3. EVERY PLAYER gets a CELEBRITY SKIP. But if you fundraise, you get your choice. The top fundraisers get first pick, and we go from there. If you can bring in corporate sponsorship, that counts towards picking your skip.
Kevin Martin will be skipping. He is the "best curler of all time", with two Olympic medals and the most winnings in the world. You also have the chance to pick: 2018 U.S. Olympians Nina Roth and Becca Hamilton, World Champion Scott Howard (Canada), Olympians Allison Pottinger, Jessica Schultz and Courtney George, National Champions Pete and Maureen Stolt, and World Bronze medalist skip, Todd Birr.
There is NO requirement for level of curling, beginners are welcome! In fact, beginners are the best curlers for the spiel, because the skips are eager to help, encourage, and teach! This is a family event, with lots of great times.
There are parties Friday and Saturday night, with food and drink all weekend.
