About Lupus Spiel

The Lupus Spiel is the largest Pro-Am tournament for curling in the world. Its prime purpose is to raise money for lupus research. It was created five years ago by Regan and Todd Birr. To date, it has raised $350,000. There are multiple locations:  the flagship location is Blaine, Minnesota, every year, in May. Our satellite location is Seattle (dates for 2019 TBD).
 

How it Works

How it works is Olympians and World-level curlers are paired with “amateur” curlers (curlers of any experience), where the “ams” raise money to play with their favorite skip. Fun mulligans are introduced into each game, and the tournament is a three-game, full eight-ends format.  Family-friendly and fun, the Lupus Spiel has garnered a world-wide reputation as the “best bonspiel out there” and the “most well-run charity curling event there is”.
