60th Anniversary

 

 

Celebrate with us!

The 2017-2018 season is the RA curling club’s 60th Anniversary. The club originated in 1957 with about 40 members. In its early years the club had no facility of its own and rented ice at the RCMP, Ottawa, and Lansdowne curling facilities. In late 1963, with membership past 100 and growing, the RA board of Directors approved the construction of the current 6 sheet facility. The new club opened for play in November 1964. The rest, as they say, is history.

 

We have many plans for the celebrations. Join in the fun.
