Additional Information

MCF2021 invitation

We have a great pleasure to invite you to the 10th anniversary of one and only Mazury Curling Festival!

In the past nine years there were over 100 participants every year having fun in Wilkasy and Gizycko, and in the tournament for 36 teams. The players of all Polish curling clubs had the opportunity to practice and compete with our guests from 17 countries from 3 continents (Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Hongkong, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and Ukraine).
We had a pleasure to meet e.g. World and European Champions (Dorottya Palancsa from Hungary, Michelle Allen from Canada, Bjorn Schroder from Switzerland and Anders Kraupp from Sweden), top players, coaches, umpires and icemasters (Mark Callan, George Munro from Scotland).

Due to COVID restrictions we cannot confirm big names of world class coaches yet. We negotiate with coaches and instructors, not only from Europe, and we will announce most names in our next letter. We hope to see new coaches as well as the most memorable characters from recent years.
If you've ever had a good time in Gizycko you can't miss out on the jubilee celebrations. If your colleagues tell you it's cool, come check it out for yourself

This year the camp will start on Sunday (not on Saturday as it was in previous years), August the 22nd. Trainings will start on Monday, August the 23rd, and end on Friday, August the 27th in the morning. The 10th Mazury Curling Cup will be launched on Friday, August the 27th in the afternoon, and it will close on Sunday, August the 29th in the evening.
