The Annual Cordwood Bonspiel, started in 1966, takes place in March. The “rocks” are made from spruce cores which were donated by Weyerhaeuser\’s plywood mill located in Hudson Bay. The rocks\’ handles are made by the employees of the Town of Hudson Bay and the arena is transformed into 12 sheets of Cordwood curling ice.
This exciting event is sponsored by the Town Of Hudson Bay and is enjoyed by all participants and spectators alike!
The grade 12 graduating class started their own Gradwood Bonspiel using the same rocks and ice.
Now Hudson Bay hosts the Oldwood bonspiel, using the same rocks and ice as the Cordwood and Gradwood, the Oldwood allows adults to play the game they once enjoyed as kids! For more information check the community events calendar for March.
