Elisabeth Childs Challenge

March 12-15, 2015
Held at Potomac Curling Club

Brief History

Elisabeth Calder Childs, for whom this event is now named, was born in Utica, NY in 1921, into a family of curlers. Introduced to the game by her father, Elisabeth watched from the sidelines until she started curling in her twenties. She moved to Norfolk, CT in 1950, bringing her love of the sport of curling to northwestern Connecticut. The first Women’s Challenge Bonspiel was held at Norfolk in 1991. At the time, the GNCC requested Elisabeth’s permission to name the bonspiel in her honor. It is said that she refused, replying in typical Elisabeth Childs fashion, “I’m not dead yet!” After her death in 2009, the Women’s Challenge Bonspiel was renamed in her honor.
