Welcome to the 15TH annual DEKALB SuperSpiel. The Morris Curling established the DEKALB SuperSpiel in March 2009 with the wonderful support of Monsanto Canada and the DEKALB seed brand. Monsanto and DEKALB have provided great support to make this event happen over the years. In 2019 we welcomed Bayer Canada, the new owners of the DEKALB seed brand. We are excited to be partnered with Bayer Canada. The bonspiel’s name acknowledges the important support of DEKALB as title sponsor and evokes the names of the club’s 1970’s Big M SuperSpiel as well as the DEKALB SuperLeague, which provides a competitive outlet for curlers in the region.
The Morris Curling Club thanks Greg Ewasko who has worked with us to provide our competitors with top level ice. In 2022, Greg was unable to join us as he was too busy as Curling Canada’s head Ice technician. Last year, Matt Rankine, who has been assisting Greg since 2014 at DEKALB Superspiel, came to oversee and ensure top quality ice for our competitors. Our fan experience is also top notch. The Morris Curling Club purchased a TV system in time for our 2nd DEKALB SuperSpiel so that our fans could have a super viewing experience with the ability to watch any sheet from any location in the club. We have hosted teams from around the world and across Canada providing fans with excellent viewing opportunities. With the expansion in 2014 to include 32 Women’s teams and the 2015 expansion to also include 32 Men’s teams along with the corresponding increase in prize money, the DEKALB SuperSpiel became one of the top events on both the Men’s and Women’s side. This expansion caused the need for more ice and thus the move to using both Morris Curling Club ice and Arena ice first in Rosenort in 2014 and then the Morris arena. 2022 saw us livestreaming 2 sheets of curling for most of the draws which provided viewing for those unable to attend in person.
Our DEKALB SuperSpiel has also become a meeting place for our sponsors. It provides an opportunity to meet with customers and to enjoy some curling as well. We say a Super thank you to our many sponsors that are so important in making the DEKALB SuperSpiel a success.
The DEKALB SuperSpiel continues to be a venue for garnering CTRS points and is an important part of the players’ quest for the Manitoba Championship berths which have been allocated to the Manitoba Curling Tour.
We hope you will all join us for the 16th annual DEKALB SuperSpiel December 1-4, 2023. Check the World Curling Tour, Manitoba Curling Team and DEKALB SuperSpiel websites for details.
