The National Capital Wheelchair Curling Club is hosting the 8 th  Annual Cathy Kerr Wheelchair Curling Memorial Bonspiel tournaments from November 29, to December 2, 2012. This is the largest wheelchair curling Bonspiel in the world with 16 competitive teams coming from as far as Scotland, the US and all across Canada. 

  The tournament will begin at the Sportplex at 1701 Woodroffe on Thursday the 29 the and will then switch to RA Centre 2451 Riverside Dr for the remainder of the tournament.  There is a recreational division that will start play on the Friday morning with  4 teams bringing the total to 20 teams competing in this event.   The tournament will wrap up on Sunday afternoon at  2 o’clock.

Cathy Kerr saw the altruistic spirit of the game of curling as one where competition between people with disabilities and able bodied persons on an equal basis could truly be applied.  `Capital Wheelchair Curling is one of the legacies that will live eternally as a tribute and honored the life of  Cathy Kerr.
