  • Successful Toy Mountain Drive

    To everyone that contributed to the first Ottawa Curling Club Toy Mountain drive, a sincere “Thank You”! 

    With the generosity from you, the members, we were able to provide almost 200 toys to be dispersed around Ottawa to children in need for this Christmas season. 

    As for the 2016 Brier tickets up for grabs, Pat Underwood and Rhoda Walker were the lucky winners of a set of single draw tickets each. 

    Thanks again for all of the support, and we look forward to doing it again next year!! (Any questions or concerns may be directed to Robyn at robyn.mattie@curling.ca  or 613-240-7594.)

  • Rock Handles

    A big thank you goes out to all the rock handle sponsors for your kind donation to our club.

    To those members who are unaware, there were a number of rocks with missing names, misspelled names, typesetting awkwardness, and font issues. Replacement handles will be available sometime in February or March 2016.

    As their names were mistakenly omitted by the engraver, we would like to especially acknowledge club members Kathryn Andrews-Clay and Darcy Pierlot for their support (and patience)!

  • Toy Mountain Christmas Drive

    Interested in helping a local family in need this Christmas, but unsure how to contribute? The OCC is making it easy for our generous curlers to support those less fortunate. 

    The Ottawa Region’s Toy Mountain campaign helps bring Christmas cheer to thousands of local children in need. Unfortunately, the Ottawa area is seeing increasing demand by families in need at Christmas and have seen shortages in toy donations in recent years.

    This year, Toy Mountain aims to help 20,000 children in the Ottawa area. The greatest requirement is for toys for boys and girls ages 0-2 and 11-12. Drop off your new, unwrapped Christmas gifts under the club Christmas tree.

    With every toy brought in, get entered into a draw for tickets to the 2016 Tim Horton’s Brier!

    Any inquiries can be directed to Robyn at robyn.mattie@curling.ca. Toys will be collected under the tree up until December 15th, 2015.
