CA) 35th Annual Senior Women’s National Bon- spiel, “Te Calling of the Clans” Nov. 30-Dec. 4, in Triumph, Ill. Previously, WCC hosted the US- WCA National Bonspiel in 1996. Waltham is the oldest curling club in Illinois,


founded in 1884 by Scottish farmers in Waltham Township. Te club will highlight its Scottish heritage throughout the bonspiel with the wear- ing of the Tartans. A bagpiper will play at the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday evening and again at the finals on Sunday. Te banquet will feature Celtic music. Triumph is a small town near the intersection

of Interstates 39 and 80 in north central Illinois, a two-hour drive south of Chicago O’Hare and Midway airports. Smaller airlines fly into Rock- ford one hour to the north and Bloomington one hour to the south. Te club is unable to provide transportation to and from the airports but rent- al cars are easily available. Te curling club is easy to find, as it is locat-

ed at the base of the largest of the town’s grain bins. Triumph is a farming community and the Waltham Club is oſten called the “Curling Club in the Cornfield” and a “real country club.” Te club pin features an ear of corn and crossed brooms. So, get your plaid on and come join us. We

look forward to hosting this wonderful opportu- nity for senior women’s curling. Q
