Vaughan PVA - Serving paralyzed veterans of Illinois

Up-and Down Pick Up Stick Bonspiel Tournament

What is up-and-down, you ask? A team of three curlers curling with one wheelchair athlete. 

COST: $300/Team, $100/Player (Wheelchair Curler is FREE)

Register as an Individual, Duo, Trio, or whole Team. (We'll match up wheelchair curlers and help form teams before the bonspiel)

We had a fantastic time organizing and putting on our March 24-26 2023 VPVA Up-and-Down Pick Up Sticks Spiel fundraiser.

Instead of a Cash Prize Pool there was a cooler stocked with alcoholic beverages and both luch and dinner would be served to participants on each of the bonspiel days. A silent auction was also hosted in tandem with the Bonspiel.

UP-and-Down Bowling Fundraiser 

The Annual Up-and-Down Candlelight Bowling Tournament Fundraiser took place Friday, May 5th at Bowlero in Romeoville, IL. It was an evening packed with fun and some great bowling highlights. The event was $25 Entry-per bowler / Nine-pin no-tap and was teams of four standing bowlers paired with one wheelchair bowler. (Same Day Prize Money Payout). We are looking forward to working with the American Wheelchair Bowling Association (AWBA) again in 2024 for the next iteration of the VPVA Up-and-Down Bowling Tournament fundraiser.


  • 1st Place $500 (team)
  • 2nd Place $300
  • 3rd Place $200
