Our History

Established in 1952, we have grown and changed in our 67-year history.

Our first "home" was in a wood frame building with natural ice. One veteran curler described early curling as "mogul curling" as the rock bounced up and down and back and forth as it made its way to the 'house'. The ice was natural; the building was extremely cold; lighting was dim; and the corn brooms left a nightmare of "straw" on the sheet.

Our New Facility

Our new facility was opened on November 26, 1983. Now we enjoy a new rink with a heated and dehumidified environment. Playing with synthetic brooms and curling shoes with built in sliders on artificial ice means a clean and consistant curling surface.

Our lounge, Bar and Kitchen are warm and inviting and are often rented by groups and individuals for their special occasions.

This building was funded by a Wintario Grant, as was the Community Centre and Arena next door.

We currently have over 70 members and in addition to Curling we have a summer Bocce league. We are also very active in the Community with participation in the annual Half Ironman competition the Surf and Turf Dinner and Auction and the Santa Claus Parade.
