Welcome to the Ottawa Curling Club

  • A message to OCC Members and Guests

    *IMPORTANT - Please read*

    Now that we are a couple of months into the season, please review the following items ...some new and some as a reminder about the club!

    SLOW PLAY Your game is allotted 2 hours to play. Please review the ‘Some Rules Notes’ signs posted at either end of the curling rink or find it on our website here.

    ICE FACILITY Please give our Ice technicians space!  Do not go onto your sheet until it is ready.  A good rule of thumb is to wait until they clear the previous game score.

    BE NICE TO YOUR ICE!  The old proshop is now the coats and boots room. 

    Help keep the ice clean by removing your outdoor shoes in the room beside the washroom.  At the front entrance of the club there is a bench with complimentary shoe covers.  But feel free to bring in a pair of indoor shoes or slippers to keep over the season at the club.

  • Susanne Rausch

    Susanne passed away peacefully on Friday, November 9th surrounded by loved ones having just celebrated her 89th birthday. Predeceased by her beloved husband Johann, her parents Joachim and Christine (Blaser) Stieb, her siblings Christine (Jakob) Schlarb, Karl (Katharina) Stieb, Heinrich (Theresa) Stieb, Theresa (Paul) Gerhard and Joachim (Eva) Stieb.

    Susie leaves behind her much loved daughter Heidi, her chosen children Maciek, Charmaine and being Oma to sweet Norah. Susie was the favourite aunt and cousin to a large extended family and has kept them all close to her heart, particularly during the last few months. She has been the ‘cool’ aunt, a mentor, a confidant, the rock and the glue for the many generations and for many friends. She left this world comforted in knowing that her daughter is surrounded by many kinds of family, all who love both of them very much.

    Susanne has had a life filled with challenges and many silver linings.

    She had an idyllic childhood in Jugoslavia before being forced to flee her home with advancing Russian forces eventually establishing a new life in Germany. A vacation to Canada led to a chance meeting with her love, Johann, enticing her to move to another new country.

    Another challenge met: she mastered the English language. Love gave her a daughter, the apple of her eye. Heidi was a joy and a challenge. Her personality helped her form wonderful friendships with many, particularly with her neighbours on Tweed Avenue and on White Lake.

    Heidi would like to thank all those who spent time with her mother over the last few months, shared memories, had meaningful visits and helped both of them through this difficult time.

    Friends are invited to Beechwood, Funeral, Cemetery & Cremation Services, 280 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario on Tuesday, November 13th from 5-8 pm. A visitation will also be held at Martin Luther Church, 933 Smyth Road, Ottawa, Ontario on Wednesday November 14th from 10am, followed by a Celebration of Life 11am. A gathering will follow.

    Private interment will be held at a later date.
