Rainbow Curling – URGENT – 1 hour delay TODAY

Hello Curlers,

There was an issue at the Ottawa Curling Club overnight, which has caused a delay for our opening day. The ice will not be ready for us until 2pm today.


Today’s draws are now at 2pm & 4pm & 6pm, an hour later then originally scheduled.

Pizza will be served after the 2pm & 4pm draws. The 6pm draw will have pizza available before going on the ice … 6pm curlers, please arrive early to have a slice before your game.

Sorry for this inconvenience.
See you at the club!

RRCL Executive Team.
