🌈 About the Over the Rainbow Bonspiel

October 1, 2023

The 2024 OTRB is set to happen on January 25 to 28, 2024 at the Ottawa Curling Club, home of the Rainbow Rockers Curling League (RRCL). The bonspiel is the flagship event of the RRCL’s season and a premier event among 2SLGBTQI+ curling leagues.


We are excited to host 40 teams from Ottawa and across Canada for a fun-filled weekend with great curling, fair play, good sportsmanship, courteous rivalry and all the camaraderie that goes with it. It will be Frozen but Fierce!


Teams will play at least four games - three round-robin games and a qualifier game. There are five playoff divisions with significant prize money for the winning teams and runners-up. Plus, there will be plenty of great food and beverages, superb entertainment, prizes and giveaways, 50/50 draws, a silent auction, ceremonies, and Canadian curler Brad Theissen is scheduled to be the keynote guest over the weekend.
