Save the Date - AGM

OCC.Exterior.2x1The next Annual General Meeting of the Oakville Curling Club will be held on Wednesday June 19, 2019.  The meeting will be held in the club lounge starting at 7:00 pm.

You will received your notice via email at least 10 days prior to the meeting.

Ice Maintenance - Controlled Melt - Why do we do it?!

OCC.Arena.PictureOver the March break we were closed for 3 days while our Head Ice Technician (Scott Foster), Assistant Ice Technician (Kevin Mooney) and our ice team completed a 'Controlled Melt' to our ice surface.

There are two main reasons to melt the ice for maintenance purposes:

Eliminate Dirt & Impurities:

  • Despite the fact that we scrape the ice twice per day, there is still a significant amount of dirt, lint, hair, dust etc. that continuously accumulates on the ice surface, and some of that inevitably gets buried in the ice.
  • It also eliminates the many knee prints that unfortunately accumulate over time.
  • By melting the top quarter inch of ice, most of this dirt floats to the surface where it can be removed with the scraper.
  • Cleaner ice not only looks better, but it also improves the bond between the surface and the pebble, which helps the life of the pebble.

Anne Hall (1958-2019)

Anne passed away peacefully at Ian Anderson House on Saturday March 16, 2019 with her family at her side.  Anne battled cancer for over 12 1/2 years and fought it with energy, tenacity and an incredibly positive attitude that was an inspiration for us and for so many others.

Dearly loved daughter of Barbara and the late Donald Creaghan of Riverview, New Brunswick.  Wife and best friend of Jeff of Oakville for 37 years.  Wonderful mother to Brendan (Stephanie Sinclair) and Lindsay (Adrian Wong).  Best Grammy in the world to Melanie and Charlie.  Dear sister of Mary (Paul Taylor) of Elizabethton, Tennessee.

Anne was a wonderful, fun, outgoing person who made good friends easily and kept them forever.  She loved curling, bridge, golfing and time in Muskoka.  Her family and two young grandchildren meant the world to her.
