Bayer is proud to partner with this prestigious event on the world curling stage with our premium seed brand: DEKALB®. We appreciate what the organizing committee has done once again to bring this exciting tournament to fans in Morris, Manitoba, and around the world via live streaming. Among the many loyal fans, are farmers. The farming community is who we live to serve — with high-performing seed, premium crop protection solutions and digital farming insights, we want to see more bushels in every farmer’s bin. A special thank you to the farming community for all your efforts during another challenging year. We’re excited for the 2024 growing season ahead as we launch two new DEKALB canola hybrids, four new corn hybrids and a new soybean variety in Western Canada — adding to our most advanced lineup yet. Bayer is also excited to launch Varro® FX herbicide for cross-spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control in wheat, and Delaro® Complete fungicide to protect valuable lentils, chickpeas, field peas and dry beans. We wish all the curlers best of luck this week and an enjoyable event for our loyal fans. We look forward to the exciting tournament ahead!

Hurry Hard!

Welcome one and all to the 16th anniversary of the DEKALB SuperSpiel.  It is extremely exciting to be hosting one of the premier curling events in the province again this year.

To our Super fans, ahead of you is a weekend of world class curling.  We hope you enjoy this high level of curling on display from some of the best curlers around the World, throughout the weekend.

It is our goal every year to run a World Class Bonspiel here at the Morris Multiplex.  Curl Morris is thankful to have amazing curling ice year-round thanks to the work of Scott Churchill.  We are proud to welcome Matt Rankine to partner with our in-house team this weekend as well.  Matt has been working with us for a couple of years and does the ice for many of Canada’s top events.

Welcome to all the teams competing!  Whether you have come from Manitoba, Canada, or beyond we are so excited to host you this weekend.  We appreciate you choosing to compete in the DEKALB SuperSpiel this year.  We hope you have a great time on and off the ice.   Good luck to you all!

To all our amazing sponsors, without you none of this would be possible.  Thank you to our Title Sponsor, Bayer Canada and their DEKALB Brand for their continued support as Title Sponsor for 16 years!  We also thank our Presenting Level Sponsor for their continued support: Meridian Industries and Valley Fiber.   To our Official Host Sponsors – Town of Morris and a special welcome to Morris and District Chamber of Commerce.  Thanks to our Lounge Sponsor – RBC Dominion Securities, Patrick Rae / Royal Bank; and our Web Sponsor – Roadmap.  We appreciate all your Super support!  A Super welcome also to AGI – Westfield Industries who has continued to support youth curling and development at our club through this event as well and Play Now, who continues to support our Volunteers.

We are lucky to have wonderful Media support.  It is another critical aspect to the success of the event.  We are pleased to have the Winnipeg Free Press and Golden West Radio as our Presenting Media Partners.

Finally, thank you to our volunteers!  We are very fortunate to have so many volunteers who contribute to the smooth running of our event.  Whether you have been a Volunteer for 1 year or have been with us for all 16 years, thank you so much for your time, energy and care you put into this event!

We want to especially thank Chris & Lorne Hamblin who have spearheaded this event from its inception over 16 years ago.  While they took a step back this year, they both were incredibly supportive, leading committees and helping us transition to new leadership along the way.  You will be greatly missed in the day-to-day operations but we look forward to reliving countless memories from these events in years to come.

If you have a chance to see any volunteers or sponsors at this event, we encourage you to thank them for their support.  It would mean a lot to us.

While we are looking forward to a great weekend, we are already looking forward to seeing you again for the 17th annual DEKALB SuperSpiel this time next year!  Registration fills up fast, so make sure you sign up early.
