Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel

Named after the late Barry Naimark, who was a longtime VCC member and part of the Lyall Dagg foursome that became world curling champions in 1964, the Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel is an opportunity for curlers to play the game they love, have fun with their friends and meet other members, all while raising funds for a local charity.
