100th Exchange Between Detroit and Kitchener-Waterloo

Beginning in 1917 an annual exchange began between the Detroit Curling Club and the Kitchener-Waterloo curling Club. The Plattsville Curling Club participation began later and they now host this event with the KW Granite Club when Detroit Curlers travel to Canada. When the Exchange began, travel entailed horses, trains and boats - at least a week long adventure. Fortunately, this is now a weekend event.

2017 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the DCC-KW Exchange. To honor this centennial, special events are being held for each end of the Exchange. The curling competitions for 2017 will include a different curling format -- two Canadians and two Americans will be on each team -- to signify international cooperation and our longstanding friendship. Scores will not be recorded.

Part I will be held at Kitchener-Waterloo
March 17-18-19, 2017 (Friday through Sunday)
Friday hospitality
Saturday curling and banquet
Sunday breakfast
Part II will be at the Detroit Curling Club
November 10-11-12, 2017 (Friday through Sunday)

Participation is limited to Sinners and/or those who have participated in past Exchange events. The Committee is in process of contacting former curlers who are eligible and interested in participating in this event.

Special jackets commemorating this event were ordered last March in Kitchener and will be given to members at Part I of the Exchange who ordered them in March 2016. If anyone is interested in purchasing a jacket, they can do so at our November Exchange and receive the jacket at the same time.

The fee for attending the November 2016 Exchange at the DCC event is $40. The 2017 fee for either or both events will be $80. Beginning with the 2017 Exchange, Part I will be in Canada and Part II will be in the US.
