RICHMOND CURLING CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING June 19, 2014 at 7:30pm IN THE LOUNGE OF THE CLUB ALL MEMBERS WELCOME
If you are of thinking of curling for the 2013-2014 season please contact:
Curling Club was established 53 years ago. The original club house was located
in the arched metal building next door to our current location. It had two sheets of natural
ice. The first rock was thrown on December 16th, 1960. in 1980, with help of a Wintario
Grant, the current 4-sheet facility was built. We have come a long way since those early
days and we are forever grateful to the pioneers who had the vision and dedication to make it
Our club is one of the busiest in the Ottawa Valley, serving well over 400 active members. From October through April each year, the club offers ice time for people of all ages and abilities. In addition to a busy schedule of adult evening and daytime curling, we have well developed programs for Light Rocks (formerly Little Rocks) and Bantam/Junior. We have casual, social, fixed, mixed and competitive draws. We socialize and compete with other Ottawa Valley clubs on a regular basis through league play, bonspiels and Friendlies.
As with other organizations such as ours, Richmond Curling Club relies heavily on the generosity of its members who volunteer their time and effort to make sure that the club runs smoothly. Without these tireless volunteers, our club would not be the wonderful experience that it is. Thank you one and all.
As each new season approaches, we embrace the opportunity to welcome new members and to reacquaint with returning members. So welcome friends old and new to the 2013-2014 curling season. We look forward to an active year of curling and socializing. Please visit other sections of our website to keep in touch with activities at the club. Curling and social events are posted regularly to keep you abreast of the goings on. Happy New (Curling) Year One and All.
