COVID-19 Club News

October 12, 2020 - Club Closed

The Board of Directors, acting on the modified Stage 2 orders set out by the Premier of Ontario, is advising members that the Granite club facilities will be closed for a period of 28 days effective Oct 10, 2020. The advisory has stated that no games are to take place and all food and drink service is prohibited. Although this does not restrict training, the Board, for significant logistical and financial reasons, has taken the decision to close the club to all curling activities.

Our reopening in September went very well, but we are now caught in the second wave and must all do our part to help flatten the curve again. The Covid 19 sub-committee will be meeting frequently to monitor the situation and advise the Board as to when the club will be able to reopen once restrictions are lifted. We commend the members who have participated in curling activities to date, and our staff who have worked to keep the club environment as safe as possible.

Further email updates will follow to keep our members up to date on the situation.

Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe.

Granite Board of Directors


October 6, 2020 - BOARD UPDATE – MASKS NOW REQUIRED IN ICE SHED

Yesterday the Board of Directors passed the following Motion: The Board mandates that all members wear masks or protective face coverings while in the ice shed, as well as when entering and exiting the building and waiting in the lounge area.

While many of the Granite Leagues began curling last week and reported no problems, concerns were expressed by some members about the Granite’s perceived lack of response to the latest rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in Ottawa and the advice of Government of Ontario health authorities to reduce contacts and practice physical distancing.

No directives have come down from any of the Government of Ontario, Ottawa Public Health or from Curling Canada/CurlON to change the policies and protocols under which we are operating. However, in light of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and the advice of health authorities, the Board has now mandated that all members wear masks or protective face coverings while in the ice shed, as well as when entering and exiting the building and waiting in the lounge area.

During the Board review of this matter it was noted that players may wish to change masks while a game is in progress due to moisture build up. Please do so in a careful manner and retain any mask that is removed for cleaning or disposal outside the club premises.

Thank you for your attention to this directive and for showing consideration to those you are curling with during this season.

Club Information

Founded in 1953, the Granite Curling Club of West Ottawa was formed to be the first club in the area to curl exclusively with granite rocks. 

We have grown from modest beginnings with 176 members to a club that serves over 650 members and operates 7 days a week.  We offer a wide variety of adult leagues as well as "learn to curl" programs for adults and kids.

We embrace all levels of curling from beginners to competitive and we hope to see you on the ice soon.
