Meet old friends and welcome new ones!
Shake off the rust and get in shape for the upcoming season!
The Men's Perdue is named after one of our club's founding members - Gordon Perdue.
The Perdue provides an opportunity to get some playing time in before the season starts.
Teams are assigned by the convenor and assignments will be posted each night when you arrive at the club. Sign-up for one night or both - no charge to play. Games will be 8-ends.
October 7, 8 and 10, 2019.
Tune Up your Muscles and catch up with all your curling friends at our First Day Women In House Bonspiel of the season.
In-House Day Women Bonspiels are open to all OCC adult female members. Preference will be given to Day Women members who sign up during the first two weeks of registration.
The Board of Directors has received some feedback from the membership regarding the fact that the Club is charging for practice ice.
The title of the original article on the Club's homepage referencing 'practice ice' was designed to target competitive teams playing in the Oakville Fall Classic and the Stu Sells Oakville Tankard that wished to rent summer ice.
During the summer league, we have and will continue to rent sheets to non-members, summer league participants and visiting teams, and if OCC members wish to rent a sheet for in order to ensure it's reserved in advance and available at a particular time, they may do so via the online event form and for a reduced rental rate.
Open sheets will be made available to OCC members, free of charge, provided there is a rental on the ice on or around the same time. Members can call a day or so ahead of time to see what's available and reserve their sheet.
We will begin to use the Members' Practice Ice Module starting Sept 6th for practice ice bookings after Sept 13th (Member Open House). The Members' Practice Ice Module can be found by logging into the OCC website. Click on 'Ice' followed by 'Practice Schedule.'
OCC members who have a current rental reservation may call to cancel their sheet and receive a full refund. Please note, the originally booked timeslot may become unavailable in the coming weeks. Please call the Club approximately 24 hours in advance for practice ice availability.
Now that registration is active, simply login to the website and look for the Membership Status box under the banner on the home page.
If you are having any difficulties, please contact the office.

Now that the summer and heat are finally here, the kids are home and the rush of summer activities starts, I wanted to remind everyone of a few upcoming deadlines and events.
If you have a minute during the long weekend, why not take some time to register for the upcoming season? Registration is easy and can be done from the comfort of your favourite binge-watching spot or Muskoka chair. Just login to http://oakvillecurlingclub.com and follow the prompts. For those of you who have already registered, thank you very much.
Speaking of registrations, we still have room in our adult and youth summer leagues. If you or anyone you know are interested in playing, please check out our offerings. It’s a great opportunity to tune up for the new curling season and a chance to win some cash!
We also have room in our Youth Summer Camp, happening August 19-23.
Save-the-date: The world comes to Oakville! Teams from Canada, USA, China, Sweden, Scotland, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the Czech Republic gather at the annual Oakville Fall Classic (Aug 30 - Sep1) and the Stu Sells Oakville Tankard (Sep 4 - 8) to compete for the championships. With more than 60 teams vying for top prize, these spiels will be bigger and better than ever, and the OCC will play host to some spectacular curling.
Speaking of which, there is a Swedish women’s team looking for accommodations during that time while they’re in Oakville to train. If you are interested in home-hosting some up-and-coming curling superstars for a couple of weeks, please contact me.
With that, I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer. See you at the Club soon!
You are invited!
The Oakville Curling Club is pleased to invite all members to our 2019 Member's Open House being held at the club on Friday, September 13 at 7:00 PM.
Reconnect with old friends while enjoying a refreshment and snack.
Looking forward to seeing you at the club!
Our 24th year of staging camps in Canada and the USA will see us return to the OAKVILLE CURLING CLUB for our annual summer three-day camp August 23-25, 2019.
Our traditional Oakville camp draws curlers from across the United States, Ontario and Quebec to your beautiful facility. This is an adult camp, open to individuals, couples, and teams. As the annual Trillium Junior Camp and the Team Homan Junior Camp are both sold-out, we are allowing junior curlers to attend in 2019.

NOTE: The date for the Annual General Meeting has been changed.
The Annual General Meeting of the Members of the Oakville Curling Club will be held WEDNESDAY, THE 26th DAY OF JUNE, 2019, at 7:00 pm for the following purpose:
In the recent Annual General Meeting Notice, we were still waiting for the audited financial statements. It was our hope that we would have them by last Saturday and thus comply with our bylaws requiring the information be provided at least 10 days prior to the AGM date.
Since we did not receive them at that time and in order to provide our members the time to review all of the materials in the AGM package and to comply with our bylaws, we will be postponing the previously announced AGM date. The Board of Directors will be meeting this Thursday, June 13th to approve the new date and a new Meeting Notice email, with the complete Meeting Package, will follow on Friday.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused with making the previous date available and hope that you will be able to attend the new date when announced.
President, Board of Directors
