Little did I know that when I joined the Oakville Curling Club I would gain such a wonderful family. The overwhelming support and love that has poured out to our family regarding the loss of my oldest son Alex is something I will never forget. Each of you have carried a little of my pain to make this heartache lighter. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

As you might know, Halton Region is dropping its mask mandate as of midnight on Monday, March 21st. While this may seem like a welcome end to the pandemic, the Club's operations have recently been impacted by an increasing number of positive Covid cases among members and staff. These impacts have included the cancellation of many games over the last 4 weeks due to confirmed and possible exposures.

The health and safety of our members and staff is paramount to the success of the Club. As such, the Club will NOT be lifting our internal mask policy at this time. You are still required to wear a mask in all areas of the Club unless you are curling or in the lounge while eating/drinking. The current mask policy will be in place until at least the Board's next meeting in early April.

Please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any questions.

As we approach the 2-year anniversary of the Club’s first Covid shutdown, and are starting to see some light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, we are taking time to reflect on the last 2 years of challenges that the Club has faced and our path to recovery and growth.

Through all the challenges of the last 2 years, we’ve been incredibly lucky to count on you, the members, to be as passionate and committed to the Club as always. When we reopened for the current season, we were honest with you about our financial situation and, at the time that fees were approved, there was a tremendous amount of uncertainty about what the season would look like, what our membership retention levels would be, and if we could operate under close to ‘normal’ conditions. We told you that it would be necessary to recruit a minimum of 600 members and that each member would be asked to pay a Special Assessment fee of more than $270 to ensure that the Club’s financial position would be stable if our operations were limited. You stepped up and committed to helping the Club through that challenge.

In the fall, we were approved for an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant of approximately $100,000 to help cover some of our operational expenses over the curling season. As a result of that grant, we were able to reconsider the Special Assessment amount and reduced it to $100.

Since that time, the Club has operated under better than anticipated conditions, including being able to host a series of external summer events, operating a highly successful summer program, conducting a number of Learn-to-Curl programs, reopening the bar, and exceeding our membership target by more than 15%. All of these things have had a significant positive impact on the Club’s finances.

In light of this, we are pleased to announce that we are giving those funds back to you! All current members that paid the Special Assessment Fee for the 2021/22 season will receive the full $113 ($100 plus HST) in the form of a credit toward next season’s curling fees. If you do not plan to return to the Club next season, you may request a refund of the fee in writing by email to the Club office.

We want to thank you for your continued support. and we look forward to celebrating getting closer to normal as we close out the season over the next couple of months.

Good Curling!

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Over the next few weeks, throughout the curling club you are going to see and hear of material relating a program called Food4Kids. The Club, in cooperation with Oakland Ford Lincoln, is sponsoring a food drive for Food4kids during the period of March 20 to 27. Table top postings will tell you more about the charity and the food they require.

Prior to COVID-19 the Senior Men, during a one day bonspiel, ran a food drive for this same organization. However during Covid we could not operate the Bonspiel and therefore the food drive also was not run. So, this year we decided to do a club-wide food drive to help Food4Kids in helping feed needy children in Oakville and other parts of Halton.

Can you help? Donations of food as noted on the table top flyers or cash or Gift cards from local grocery stores are all acceptable contributions. Food will be stored along the wall in the Trophy Lounge, while cash and gift cards can be deposited in the marked container on the bar.

Thanks for helping with this worthy cause.

Return to Learn to Curl Overview

It has come to our attention that a number of members have recently experienced symptoms of and/or tested positive for COVID-19. These cases seem to be a result of a large transmission event that occurred last Thursday, February 24th. As such, we thought it prudent to notify you that you may have come into close contact with someone with Covid at the Club since last Thursday.

We cannot identify everyone who has been infected or when they played, only that there are at least a dozen members, staff members, and household contacts of members who have reported symptoms or positive test results. As far as we know, all symptoms are mild and these people are now isolating for the required 5 days before they come back to the Club.

Halton Public Health advises the following:

  • All members and people living in their households should self-monitor for symptoms and/or get tested from 10 days since they last visited the Club;
  • If you begin to experience symptoms and/or test positive within the next 10 days, you must isolate for 5 days from the onset of symptoms or positive test, whichever is earlier;
  • People living in your household, whether symptomatic or not, must also isolate for the same duration;
  • Should someone living in your household subsequently begin to experience symptoms and/or test positive, their isolation time resets from the onset of their symptoms or positive test, whichever is earlier;
  • Most importantly, if you or someone in your household experiences any symptoms of Covid, even mild symptoms, you must NOT come to the Club. Do NOT assume you only have a cold.
At this time, we are not considering cancelling curling or closing the bar; however, if staff, many of whom curl at the Club, are forced to isolate due to a positive test result or an infection in their household, you may experience interruptions in services, such as limited bar service and/or ice maintenance delays. We ask for your patience while we work through these hiccups over the next little while.
We remind you that it is up to each member to assess their personal risk level before coming to the Club. We anticipate a number of games scheduled over the next week or so will be postponed. As such, we will be setting aside time during upcoming weekends for makeup games. Please keep an eye on the website over the next couple of days for more information. If you plan to postpone a game, please remember to cancel your ice via the website.
We also remind you that we strongly encourage mask use and physical distancing whenever possible, even when not required by public health. Remember, masks protect your fellow members and staff as much as they protect you!

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this developing situation. We will report back to you if we receive any additional information. If you have any questions, or would like to report symptoms or a positive test result, please reach out to the This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Monday Night Open League is recruiting players for the final series of the season, starting March 7th. Current members can join the league for no additional charge. New members can join for $339, including HST. New members who have taken our L2C Introduction to Curling program this year get a $100 discount ($239, all in).

Good day fellow OCC members!

As we all watch the drama and excitement unfold at the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics, we are reminded of the camaraderie and bonds of friendship that are forged through sport.


In December 2021 the club celebrated its 67th Anniversary!

In addition to the Board of Directors (which meets on a monthly basis) there are 5 Board Committees actively working to enhance our curling & social experiences:

  • Sustainability Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Renovation Committee
  • Executive Committee
  • HR Committee

Stay tuned for more updates on the evolution of the OCC in the ongoing effort to make the Oakville Curling Club a great place to socialize and curl both now and well into the future.

Good curling!

As the province proceeds into more relaxed restrictions, the Club is following suit. As of Monday, February 28th:

  • Your Ontario Digital Vaccine Certificate (QR Code) will no longer be required to enter the Club. While we will still require everyone who enters to be at least 2-dose vaccinated, only non-members or other guests will be required to show proof of vaccination.
  • Weekday evening early draw times will move from 6:30pm to 6:40pm. This is being done in response to capacity limits being lifted and to give members a few extra minutes to get to the Club for the early draw. All other draw times will remain the same.

A reminder that, in accordance with Halton By-law 47-20, masks are still required in all warm areas of the Club unless seated at a designated table while eating or drinking.

As of Jan 31st, the Ontario provincial government will not be requiring us to keep a record of who enters the club for contact tracing purposes. In light of this, you will not be required to provide your Curl ON QR code upon arrival. You will still be required to present your Ontario digital vaccine certificate (QR code) to enter the club.

In order to enter the club, you must provide your Ontario digital vaccine certificate, which will be scanned by staff upon arrival. If you don't have your Ontario vaccine code, please download it by visiting https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/ or by calling 1-888-943-3900.

Do NOT forget your smart phone if you have downloaded your vaccine QR code to it. The vaccine receipt from the Ministry of Health is no longer sufficient proof and members that show up without their proof of vaccine QR code may be denied entry.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to adapt to the continuously changing public health restrictions and requirements. We look forward to seeing you later this week!

What happens if there's a Covid case at the Club now that there's no contact tracing?

Should Club Management be made aware of a close contact or case of Covid among the membership, we will notify members on the relevant draws, as advised by Halton Public Health, without divulging the contact's identity or personal information. Members who are a close contact of someone with Covid or who have Covid themselves are asked to contact Club Management as soon as possible after their diagnosis.
