MCF2022 invitation

We have a great pleasure to invite you to the 11th edition of one and only Mazury Curling Festival!

In the past ten years there were between 100 and 200 camp 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 best 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.

This year the camp will start on Tuesday the 23rd of August (not on Saturday or Sunday as it was in previous years). Trainings will start on Wednesday, August the 24th, and end on Sunday, August the 28th in the afternoon. The 11th Mazury Curling Cup will be launched on Monday, August the 29th in the morning and it will close on Wednesday, August the 31st in the evening.
For all those still not tired of curling, we have a new offer for the next two days. For the first time in Giżycko we are organising a tournament for mixed doubles, we are planning 24 pairs and a full two days (1-2 September) of games in an attractive format. You can apply for just the camp, just one of the tournaments, or both - but preference will be given to applications for both the camp and the tournament or tournaments together.
Teams and pairs made up of campers will be accepted into the tournament first, other teams will be put on a reserve list and wait to be accepted later.

We would like to kindly remind you that we are expecting your applications since the end of February till the list will be full. Our list of participants is limited to 140 only! For organizational reasons your application will be placed on the list only after prepayment (200 zlotych or 50 Euro).
