|History of Use:||The Waterloo Curling Club was established in 1883. The Sleeman Trophy was a Guelph Curling Club Trophy, and was presented by the Sleeman Brewery of Guelph. The Guelph Curling Club hosted an annual bonspeil at which clubs from adjacent communities competed for the Sleeman Trophy. The name of the trophy changed over the years, and in later years, the competition was narrowed to one between the Kitchener Granite Club, the downtown Galt Curling Club and the Guelph Curling Club. The present (1986) whereabouts of the trophy are unknown.|
