Grey Cup of Curling

In 1907 the Governor General Earl Grey presented the curlers of Amherst a Grey Cup for the first Maritime Curling Bonspiel. Two years later, in 1909, he presented the Canadian Rugby Union with a Grey Cup, the same famous trophy that is now used by the Canadian Football League (CFL).

Amherst Grey Cup of CurlingYou may remember back in 2012, TSN made a visit to Amherst because of our Grey Cup..  the ‘original’ Grey Cup. This cup was presented to the Amherst Curling Club by Governor General Earl Grey for the first Maritime Curling Bonspiel in 1907, two years BEFORE the famous Grey Cup that is now a CFL trophy.

See the full story here: http://amherstcurlingclub.com/grey-cup-tour-makes-stop-in-amherst.html

The club has decided to bring back the original Grey Cup for 2015!

Planning is well under way. This should be a great event. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for details!
