Please check the schedule for Round 2 draw dates and times.  A 1 PM draw will take place on December 20, 2015 and draws at 3 PM and 5 PM have been scheduled on January 3, 2016.  If you are curling on December 20, you can still register for the funspiel and banquet – just be sure to register in advance.  And be sure to fill the gallery on January 3rd at 5 PM as Team Douglas takes on Team Mantha in a classic 1-2 matchup to determine Ottawa #1 for this year’s Canadian Gay Curling Championships being held in February in Winnipeg.  A big thank you to teams Mantha and Douglas for representing Ottawa this year!
