    If you are interested in running for the board, the deadline for nominations is September 1, 2015.

  • THE OVCA NEEDS YOUR HELP

    Curling is over for another season, but planning for the 2015 Mens City of Ottawa bonspiel has begun. Its a big job to organize this event. We need your help. Turnover was high this spring, and we are looking for people to work out on the organizing committee. The committee meets about once a month until December, and a bit more frequently up to the March event.  The committee works as a team, and this is a big reason we were able to deliver a bonspiel the past few years. We have templates detailing the work involved, that makes the job easier for newcomers to the committee, so don't be shy. Here are the key positions that are vacant.

    • Committee chairperson - It sounds daunting, but you work with Peter our events coordinator to ensure deliverables are on track.
    • A social coordinator to organize the Friday night party (the Tailgators event) and the Finals reception on Sunday.
    • A marketting and promotions person to spread the word to the curling community, keeping them informed, and
    • Someone to handle trophies (retrieve from storage, take to engraving, deliver to clubs, etc.

    Please sign up to help us if you think you can commit to help with any of these tasks, share this message with your curling associates, or sign up a friend and come forward as a duo. We need your help to make this event happen in 2015.

    You can contact me by replying to this message at  frank@ovca.com or phone me at 613-825-5397 or 613-914-5166.

  • NEW ICE TECH ANNOUNCED

      After weeks of extensive interviews and consultations, we are delighted to announce that Ian MacAulay will be the OCC's new ice maker. Ian brings to the role decades of success making championship calibre ice at the RCMP and has been a longtime competitor in the OCC's cash league.

    The Board considered 11 applicants for the position from Ottawa, across Canada, and even one from the United States. Although we were impressed by the wealth of expertise and experience of all the candidates, Ian stood out as the ice maker who most clearly exemplified the attitude and abilities we were seeking and was most committed to our long-term success.

    Please join us in welcoming Ian to his new position. We have every confidence that, under Ian's management, our members will enjoy consistently superior playing conditions in the upcoming seasons.

    Thank you for your patience and support during this process.

  • PAST PRESIDENT'S DINNER REVIVED

    It hasn’t happened for at least 50 years.

    OCC President Mike Loewen resurrected an old tradition by hosting a President’s dinner at the club Monday April 14. As far as any of the attending Presidents could remember there had not been such a dinner during their tenures.

    Only 3 of the 12 living past Presidents could not attend. Those in attendance in order of newest to oldest tenure were Gayle Green, Barb Brown, Eric Johansen, Steve Mitchell, Brad Shinn, Sandra Chisholm, Rod Matheson, Bob York and Dave Smith. All still curl at the Ottawa except for Johansen, York and Smith.

    Those three couldn’t believe how the banner count has increased and that we are getting 7 more this year.

    After an upscale meal prepared by Dallas the group went on a tour where they raved about the refurbished locker rooms and all were impressed by the state of the art ice plant.
