Welcome to the Ottawa Curling Club

  • OCC closed for the season due to COVID-19 March 20, 2020

     

    Further to the messages shared over the past few days, the Board

    has decided that the Ottawa Curling Club will close for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.  This decision aligns with the public health authorities advice

    asking that all public gatherings and events be cancelled.  We are disheartened with this extraordinary decision but for many reasons know this is in the best interest for the health of our members, staff, guests, and our club.  We look forward to next season. 

    Our Spring Meeting will be cancelled.  The Board will be sending out a digital version in the coming weeks to update our membership on financials, facilities, and other important topics. 

    We will be rescheduling ‘The 59th Gordie Perry’ tentatively to kick-off next season.  All participants for this season’s Perry event will be contacted with further details. 

    We would like to share more information on the member who had direct contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.  The potential exposure occurred outside the club on Wednesday, March 11 and the member used the club facilities the following day during the Thursday Daytime league.  The club has communicated this information directly with the Thursday Daytime league.  This member did not visit the club after Thursday, March 12 and has followed Public Health protocol by self-isolating and has been tested; results to be determined.

    We encourage you to continue to exercise an abundance of caution in these unpredictable times and to follow public health advice, as can be found here: https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/index.aspx

    If you have an immediate need to collect your personal belongings from the club, please contact our Club Manager, Dalal at manager@ottawacurlingclub.com

    If you need to contact a Board member directly, please sign in to the ‘Members Only’ area on our website to view contact information at https://www.ottawacurlingclub.com/members/board

    Your continued patience and support of the Club and our community at large is greatly appreciated during this difficult time for our Nation.

    Yours in health & curling,

    The OCC Board

  • COVID-19 UPDATE

    March 15, 2020

    Members,

    Further to the message shared Saturday March 14, 2020, the Board has decided to close the Club and suspend play until further notice

    We have taken this decision to contribute to broader public health efforts and help limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community, recognizing that many other local clubs and operations have also closed.

    The Board has also learned that a member has had direct contact outside the club with a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19. We will be communicating further information to the league within which that member played this week, so that those league members are aware, and encourage them to share this information with their social networks.

    We will communicate with you regularly regarding the status of Club operations, including future planned events and personal items left in club locker rooms. If you have an immediate need to collect your personal belongings, please contact the Club Manager at manager@ottawacurlingclub.com.

    We encourage you to continue to exercise an abundance of caution in these unpredictable times and to follow public health advice, as can be found here:

    Sincerely,

    The OCC Board

  • COVID-19 UPDATE

    March 14, 2020

    Members,

    As the COVID-19 situation in Canada and internationally is evolving rapidly, the OCC Board is committed to monitoring the situation on a daily basis with a view of protecting the health of our staff, members, renters, guests, and the general public.

    As of today, we will remain open for those who wish to curl and connect with friends. We will continue to exercise preventative hygiene practices and urge you to continue to do so as well.

    Experts suggest that Canada is at a crucial period in the pandemic, and now is our opportunity to limit the impact. Below is current public health expert advice on how we can each contribute to limiting the spread and impact of this virus in our community. We urge everyone to exercise an abundance of caution in these unpredictable times. This is particularly true for seniors and those with pre-existing conditions, for whom the risks related to infection are heightened.

    We continue to ask those with any flu-like symptoms, particularly a dry cough and/or fever, to refrain from coming to the Club.

    For those without symptoms, experts recommend that all Canadians:

    -        Exercise ongoing hand hygiene (i.e. wash often and for at least 20 seconds at a time) and respiratory etiquette (i.e. sneeze in your sleeve)

    -        Practice social distancing to minimize close contact with others in the community

    -        Self-isolate and self-monitor for 14 days after travelling internationally

  • COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

    March 12, 2020

    The Ottawa Curling Club is aware of the ongoing COVID-19 global outbreak and we are taking preventative measures to protect our members, staff, volunteers, and guests.  

    We would like to encourage players to avoid the traditional camaraderie pre- and post- game handshakes in favour of a wave with “good game” and/or “good curling” saying. If you are ill or think you may be ill, please do not visit the OCC and utilize your league’s spares list.

    Please take responsibility for your own health and not jeopardize others’ health.  We encourage you to follow the Ottawa Public Health and the Government of Canada’s webpage on the outbreak to help you protect and educate yourself. See links below...

    Ottawa Public Health - Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

    Government of Canada - Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Outbreak update

    We are continuing to monitor the situation and will keep our members, staff, volunteers, and guests informed.

  • Exciting Changes to the OCC Club Championship


    The OCC Board is pleased to announce that we are expanding the number of teams that qualify for our Club Championships.

    Starting this season, the Championship draw will include 22 teams (up from 16) to increase the inclusivity of the event, recognize the quality of competition across leagues, and welcome the champions of the new Colts U5 to the event.

    The 22 teams will represent as follows:
    • Monday Open Ladder – 3 teams (no change)
    • Tuesday Women’s Business – 2 teams (increase of 1 team)
    • Wednesday Cash – 5 teams (no change)
    • Thursday Men’s – 3 teams (no change)
    • Friday Mixed – 3 teams (increase of 2 teams)
    • Saturday Open – 3 teams (increase of 2 teams)
    • University league – 1 team (no change)
    • Getting Started League – 1 team (no change)
    • Colts – 1 team (new inclusion)
    Convenors will notify their teams of how these changes implicate their specific leagues, including how qualifiers will be chosen.

    We have also eliminated the rule that previously required members who qualify with more than one team to choose only one team to represent. Such members will have the opportunity to play for multiple teams as the schedule allows.

    The Championships will take place from April 6-9, 2020 with a $500 cash prize for the winning team!
