Congratulations to our League Secretary, Geoff Sheppard!

This past Friday, the Ottawa Curling Club recognized long-time member Rod Matheson and our own Geoff Sheppard as the newest (and only current) Life Members of the Ottawa Curling Club.  This is a special honour and well deserved given Geoff’s longtime and sustained contribution to the OCC.  On top of that, Geoff has served as Secretary of the Rainbow Rockers for many years and is also currently Drawmaster for the Over the Rainbow Bonspiel.  Next time you see Geoff, please thank him for his efforts in making both our league and the OCC so successful.
