THE OTTAWA-RIDEAU CHALLENGE
The sign up sheet for OCC members to compete in the Ottawa Rideau Challenge is on the dance floor.
What is it?
The Ottawa- Rideau Challenge is a friendly rivalry that goes back to 1888 when the Rideau was founded in protest to the Ottawa's No Alcohol policy.
The score is cumulative across all sheets. The format is explained on the sign-up sheets.
The date: Saturday December 27 at the Rideau beginning at 6. The Rideau provides supper for all.
ICE CONDITIONS UPDATEICE ALERT! ICE ALERT!
Ian and Rick have done ice maintenance Thursday night. As such both agree that the ice may act like small rodents who gather nuts - in other words squirrely.
The ice may be somewhat inconsistent for the next few days as their changes take place.
