The Aksarben Curling Club hosts multiple bonspiels every year. The Halloween costume-themed Bone-Spiel Fun Spiel kicks off our curling season every October. We have a Women's Funspiel in November to grow the community among women curlers. Our club's long-running signature bonspiel, the Irish Open Bonspiel, is held every March, which includes a novice and an open/experienced division. We also help support the Cornhusker State Games in providing a curling event during their annual summer gamer in July.
