The Engineer’s Curling League was conceived by Jack Merchant, who was a senior engineer at Swan Wooster Engineering. He started the league in 1959 at the Pacific Curling Club.*

Over the years, our league has curled at 4 different curling clubs as follows:

  • 1959/1960 to 1969/70 - Pacific Curling Club in Vancouver
  • 1970/71 to 1993/94 - Hollyburn Country Club in West Vancouver
  • 1994/95 to 2014/15 - North Shore Winter Club in North Vancouver
  • 2015/16 to present - Vancouver Curling Club in Vancouver *

This year our league started our 64th season on Saturday, September 16, 2023.   Congratulations to everyone who was successful in winning a fresh apple pie.

The regular round robin season started on Saturday, September 23, 2023.  This year we are back up to 14 teams this year.

On Saturday, December 16, 2023, we had our annual turkey shoot.

On March 16, 2024 we start a four week playoff that will finish up on Saturday, April 6, 2023.  This will wrap up the season and have our closing party where fine wines are awarded to each and every team.

  • Our league plays a full round robin schedule, with an end of season playoff, with all teams in the playoff.
  • We are one of the only leagues at VCC that still curls the originally traditional full 10 ends, but we currently have a 2.5 hour time slot, compared to most leagues curl with a 2 hour time slot.  (We do play to a bell.  You need to play at a good pace to get in 10 ends)
  • Our league is now in our 64th year.
  • There is a good balance between competitiveness and social. In other words we have a lot of fun but at the same time we are out to win.
  • The curling fees for the season includes:
    1. curling ice rental to the VCC
    2. an opening skills competition where fresh apple pies are awarded to the best team and individuals
    3. a turkey shoot in late December where real turkeys (not gift certificates) are the prizes
    4. a full round robin of play followed by a four-game playoff
    5. closing ceremonies at the end of the season where fine wines are awarded as prizes. (All teams will win some wine)
    6. we do not have any 50/50 draws or anything like that to finance league activities. Your fee includes everything.
  • A person simply cannot go wrong by joining our league. It is the best possible league to curl in.
  • The 8:30 starting time on Saturday morning has the benefit of getting you going for the weekend.
  • If you join our league, we will guarantee you a good time and you will meet a lot of new friends.
  • Our league has space for a 16 team roster.  We currently have 14 teams, so we are still looking for individual curlers in all positions, and teams who wish to  join us for next season.
  • Membership in the league also gives you a priority option to participate in the traditionally sold-out Professional Engineer’s Bonspiel
  • The Professional Engineer's Bonspiel was first held at the Pacific Curling Club in Vancouver, February 20 to 22, 1970 organized by Jack Merchant, Kurl Lissel, and Keith Fenton.*


The 53rd Annual Professional Engineers Curling Bonspiel was held at VCC on February 9th and 10th.

This year we were back to 32 teams.
