Unfortunately we have to share the news of the closing of the Ottawa Curling Club due to the Covid-19 virus.
The Rainbow Rockers season has therefore ended prematurely. We will look forward to next season, and please stay tuned to the website for upcoming details about a summer curling gathering, subject to our health authority recommendations.
Enjoy the first day of spring on Saturday !
Hello Rainbow Rockers,
The OCC Board of Directors held an emergency meeting Sunday morning at 10:30am and have decided that the Ottawa Curling Club will be closed effective immediately. More details can be found on the OCC website.
As a result, Rainbow Rockers curling is suspended until further notice. We look forward to and hope to be back on the ice sometime soon, however, we do not know how this will play out, so please check the Rainbow Rockers website (https://rainbowrockers.org/) for more detail in the coming days.
If anyone has specific concerns or questions, please contact Steve at [email protected].
Your RRCL Executive Team.
Please be advised that the OCC is in regular operations as of Friday evening, and we expect that the regularly scheduled RRCL games will be played on Sunday March 15. Any update to this information in the next 24 hours would be posted here if necessary.
At the same time, we are very aware of the COVID-19 concerns, and ask all players to adhere to the health authority recommendations, such as not curling if you have any symptoms, and keeping distance from other players as much as possible (ie no handshakes, or other contact).
We also ask players to wash their hands after they enter the OCC on Sunday and immediately after coming off the ice before engaging in a social drink.
If players have specific concerns or questions, please direct them to Steve at [email protected]
RRCL Executive Team.
The Over the Rainbow Bonspiel organising committee is sad to announce the cancellation of this year’s event due to the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19.
Refunds will be issued via e-transfer. Please be patient as there are a large number for our treasurer to process.
While we are disappointed that we will be missing out on a fun weekend of curling, drinks, and entertainment, the committee recognises the importance of social distancing in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
We hope to see you all for the bonspiel in 2021.
