NEW ICE TECH ANNOUNCED
After weeks of extensive interviews and consultations, we are delighted to announce that Ian MacAulay will be the OCC's new ice maker. Ian brings to the role decades of success making championship calibre ice at the RCMP and has been a longtime competitor in the OCC's cash league.
The Board considered 11 applicants for the position from Ottawa, across Canada, and even one from the United States. Although we were impressed by the wealth of expertise and experience of all the candidates, Ian stood out as the ice maker who most clearly exemplified the attitude and abilities we were seeking and was most committed to our long-term success.
Please join us in welcoming Ian to his new position. We have every confidence that, under Ian's management, our members will enjoy consistently superior playing conditions in the upcoming seasons.
Thank you for your patience and support during this process.
On behalf of the OCC's Board of Directors
PAST PRESIDENT'S DINNER REVIVED
It hasn’t happened for at least 50 years.
OCC President Mike Loewen resurrected an old tradition by hosting a President’s dinner at the club Monday April 14. As far as any of the attending Presidents could remember there had not been such a dinner during their tenures.
Only 3 of the 12 living past Presidents could not attend. Those in attendance in order of newest to oldest tenure were Gayle Green, Barb Brown, Eric Johansen, Steve Mitchell, Brad Shinn, Sandra Chisholm, Rod Matheson, Bob York and Dave Smith. All still curl at the Ottawa except for Johansen, York and Smith.
Those three couldn’t believe how the banner count has increased and that we are getting 7 more this year.
After an upscale meal prepared by Dallas the group went on a tour where they raved about the refurbished locker rooms and all were impressed by the state of the art ice plant.
Pictured: left to right – GAYLE GREEN 2004-2006; SANDRA CHISHOLM 1990-1992; DAVE SMITH 1978-1980; ROD MATHESON 1988-1990; BOB YORK 1986-1988; BARBRA BROWN 1998-2000; STEVE MITCHELL 1994-1996; ERIC JOHANNSEN 1996-1998; BRAD SHINN 1992-1994; MICHAEL LOEWEN PRESENT who is the 36th OCC President.
