Defending the Quebec Challenge Cup vs Windsor (Nov 5th)
For the first time since 1957, the Quebec Challenge Cup trophy resides at the Ottawa Curling Club!
Join us on Saturday, November 5th from 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM, to cheer on our OCC teams lead by James Benson and Geoff Colley as we defend the Cup vs Challenger: Windsor (Quebec).
The Quebec Challenge involves having a 10-end double rink curling game. At the conclusion of each challenge, the Cup is awarded to the club with the highest aggregate score.
The Quebec Challenge Cup is the oldest competitive trophy in North America, and has been continually contested since 1874.
The Practice ice is now available online.
Owing to the demand for practice ice, bookings are for 30 minutes (a half-hour) only.
Match Committee interim ruling on brooms
The Match Committee considered the question of brooms at their meeting last Wednesday (Sept 28). Their interim ruling can be found on the rules page. The short version is that most members can keep using their current equipment, but we ask you to do so in the spirit of fair play.

The series is open to any club involved with the OVCA or Curling Quebec as an event under the Canadian Branch. Due to the vast number of clubs waiting to challenge for the Cup, it is typically a 5-7 year cycle to get another chance to challenge for this large, prestigious trophy.
