MCF2024 invitation
We have a great pleasure to invite you to the 13th edition of one and only Mazury Curling Festival!
In the past twelve 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).
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 Saturday the 24th of August. Trainings will start on Sunday, August the 25th, and end on Thursday, August the 29th in the afternoon. The 13th Mazury Curling Cup will be launched on Friday, August the 30th in the morning and it will close on Sunday, September the 1st in the evening. You can apply for just the camp, for the tournament, or both - but preference will be given to applications for both the camp and the tournament or tournament together. Teams 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 beginning of February till the list will be full. Our list of participants is limited to 144 only! For organizational reasons your application will be placed on the list only after prepayment (250 zlotych or 50 Euro).
