The Evergreen
Mixed Bonspiel
1970 to now
A Mayfield Curling Tradition

The Mayfield Curling Club held its first Evergreen Mixed Bonspiel in 1970. It has been held every year since then and continues to be one of the premier Mixed Spiels in the US. See past winners.

As with most activities at MCC, the social aspect is a major part of the Evergreen. The four-day spiel finds the participants at an opening dinner served at the Curling Lodge. Friday is the house party (costumes optional). Recent themes have included Dynamic Duos, Wild Wild West, The Roaring 20’s, A Toast to the Evergreen, Cleveland Rocks, and The Art of the Draw. This year’s theme is Sea the Broom - A Bonspiel on the High Seas.

Saturday evening finds all the participants at a formal dress dinner dance at the Mayfield Country Club Main Clubhouse. Finally, on Sunday, the piper brings the finalists onto the ice for the finals in three events.

With 20 teams taking part there are 80 curlers in the event. With Mayfield’s participation limited to 4 teams, the remaining teams come from all over the North American curling world: both Canadian and American teams take part.

Once a team participates in the Spiel, its emblem is painted on a 4' x 4' plaque and exhibited in the lodge along the sides of the ice. Over 40 plaques now grace Mayfield’s ice house.

Mayfield Curling Club fields 4 teams - the previous year’s bonspiel chairs, the MCC member at the top of the Evergreen Ladder (our internal waiting list), and the winners of the A bracket and B bracket curl downs (held in the January prior to the bonspiel).

Everyone should experience the Evergreen once in their curling life - it is a memorable weekend!
