  • PARKING BAD NEWS

    Yesterday the owner of the business on Argyle that allows us to use his lot on weekends and weekdays after 5:30 pm, informed the club that as of January 1 his lot is off limits to us.

    In other words we cannot park on his lot at any time.

    He says some of our renters and members have abused the conditions especially parking in the spots reserved for his tenants.

    We are trying to re-negotiate with him but for now please be advised that you park in his lot at your own risk of getting ticketed and/or towed.

    Club Pro, Earle Morris, has published his first PRO TIP of the year. Access it from the home page with your member log in.

  • PARKING IS NOT A RIGHT

    We all know the OCC has limited parking spots.

    Some members are now parking on the lot for the duration of their work day, thinking that because they are curling later that day they have the right to do so. This means that curlers who have morning draws, especially Monday and Wednesday, have less on site parking spots. There are no other places to park around the area on weekdays during work hours.

    Members are asked to refrain from parking on site except during their actual draw times.

    Unfortunately those using the OCC lot as their workday parking spot will be ticketed without warning.

     

     

  • PRACTICE ICE AND COLD CASH

    On-line booking of practice ice will resume as of Friday October 12.

    Please remember to complete your on-line membership application. Payment is due by Friday October 26 please. Or YOU KNOW WHO will be after you.
