 SORRY. REGISTRATION CLOSED

 

 

 

OVERVIEW

What happens when you combine the skills and strategies of curling and table-top role playing games? Come find out at the Rocket City Curling Club's second annual DragonSpiel!

In this two-day funspiel, you’ll decide whether to curl as a Wizard, Cleric, Fighter or Rogue, and you’ll receive a limited number of spells or abilities to use during your matches. But choose wisely! You’ll only get to teleport that stone once!

Other details:

  • Open bonspiel

  • $300 team registration fee / $75 individual registration fee

  • Limited to 20 TEAMS

  • Three-game guarantee

  • Dinners provided

  • One-shot TTRPG’s to play between draws

  • And it really is about the curling... no RPG experience needed!

All games will be played at the Huntsville Ice Sports Center, located at 3185 Leeman Ferry Rd, Huntsville, AL  35801.

HOW IT WORKS

Each team will receive four decks of cards, one each for Wizards, Clerics, Rogues and Fighters. Each deck will have four cards with a different spell or ability.

You'll assign one deck to each of your teammates, and they'll use those spells while curling. But you can only use each spell or ability once during the bonspiel, so use them wisely. We'll send you the spell / ability list before the event so you can strategize.  All teams will receive the same card decks.   

Cosplay? If you're feeling it... absolutely! But try to avoid feathers and other materials that could fall on the ice. 

Between draws, we'll feed you, you can buy drinks, and we'll have some games available. After the final draw, we have several DM's who will run some quick one-shot D&D games. Or play some crokinole. Or just chill.

T-SHIRT PRE-ORDERS

Don't miss out on our sweet DragonSpiel t-shirt.  It's a super high quality tri-blend fabric featuring Stonehorder Dragon!  

We will be taking pre-orders for the shirts later in the year.  We'll have them printed and waiting for you at DragonSpiel.  We'll probably print a few extras for sale on site, but not very many.

I WANT TO MAKE A VACATION OUT OF THIS!

Want to extend your vacation by a day or two? We don't blame you! Did you know that Huntsville was rated the #1 Best Place to Live in the US in 2022? We love our city and think you will too.

Be sure to check out the US Space and Rocket Center, the largest space museum in the world. Or maybe you want to do some hiking and check out some waterfalls and swimming holes? Check out the Huntsville Adventurer website for the inside scoop. Or maybe spend a day hopping between our local microbreweries.  And yes... we have Uber and Lyft! 

We hope to see you in Huntsville!  Please feel free to email us at bonspiels@rocketcitycurlingclub.org if you have any questions.
