  • Ottawa Curling Club Celebration - Saturday, September 30, 2017

    * LAST CALL *

    Saturday, September 30th 2017

    (If we do not have enough people registered by the AGM on Tuesday, Sep 19th, we will be forced to cancel this event.)

    Come join us in a celebration of the club's history and the contribution of the members that keep the club a vibrant place to curl and socialize. In this, Canada's 150th year, we celebrate both our 166th birthday as a club and the 101st anniversary of the club's current building.

    To mark this historic year, we are throwing a big party to launch the start of the new curling season and we are reviving the tradition of life memberships to honour members who have made exceptional contributions to the club.

    What better way to celebrate the end of summer than a fabulous Ribs & Chicken BBQ followed by a great evening of entertainment by the Old Man Band. Curling will be on the menu and should be a lot of fun. The format will be similar to the Ottawa-Rideau challenge with all participants playing 2 sets of four ends and each team will be captained by a special guest. And of course, you want to be there to toast the new Lifetime members and show them your appreciation for making our club a better place.

    Here is the program for the day:

    • 13h30 /14h00 – Registration
    • 14h00 / 18h00 – Curling & Other activities
    • 16h30 / 18h30 – Social
    • 18h30 / 20h15 – Dinner & Lifetime Membership Ceremony
    • 20h15 / 20h30 – Draws & Prizes
    • 20h30 / 24h00 – Evening entertainment

    As we are holding the entire event at the Curling Club, there will be only 120 tickets available.

    • 80 tickets @ $50.00 that includes participation in the afternoon curling challenge
    • 40 tickets @ $35.00 that excludes curling

    Tickets are on sale now until September 19th 2017. Please RSVP to event165occ@gmail.com and payment options will be advised.

    Your Club is looking forward to your participation.

  • NOT A SPORTS BAR CAMPAIGN FOR CURLING CLUBS

    Rogers and Bell recently increased fees paid for cable packages that include TSN and Sportsnet by licensed establishments with capacity over 100 people. The target of the rate increase is sports bars, but the OCC and the thousands of other curling rinks across Canada that are licensed are unfairly getting caught up in this rate increase. It will cost us an extra $3,000-$5,000 a year. The OCC is not for-profit and is volunteer driven. Help us stop Bell and Rogers from gouging community curling clubs. Tell them to cancel the increase in cable fees to our crinks. We aren't sports bars. These fees hurt and aren't necessary. Please visit www.notasportsbar.ca. We need you to send emails and post to Twitter and Facebook about this campaign so that the cable companies and the government hear your concerns.

    Curling Clubs are Not a Sports Bar

     

  • Life membership nominations wanted

    As we announced at the Spring Meeting, the Board is looking for nominations for life membership. Since the meeting, we have updated the policy to make it simpler and clearer. 

    If you know a member who meets the criteria below and you think is worthy of the honour, please forward your nomination to Dalal at manager@ottawacurlingclub.com

    We will award life membership to a small number of worthy nominees at our opening celebration in September. Please get your nominations in soon and, preferably, no later than the start of September.

    New OCC Life Member Policy
    Life Membership is the club's recognition of a member's sustained and exemplary contributions to the Ottawa Curling Club. It is awarded by discretion of the board to active members in good standing that have long tenure and who are easily recognizable as having made these extraordinary contributions to the club through volunteering, representing the club in competition, or being active in the club's community.

    Board nominations

    We are also accepting nominations for the board. They must be received in writing at the club by August 25, 2017. Two members in good standing can nominate another member in good standing. The nomination must be signed by all three and the nominee must agree to stand for election and serve a term of two or possibly three years.
