Welcome to our club

Doubles Bonspiel Deceber 1st 

The Ennismore Curling Club (ECC) was founded in 1974. The curling season runs from mid-October until mid-March each year. During this time there are a number of leagues and many tournaments ("bonspiels"). There are plenty of opportunities for you to come out to participate, compete or just watch the action.

The club facility is available for rentals throughout the curling season as well as summer for weddings and other social events. There is a full bar and hall on the premises that can be rented for curling which makes a great corporate outing! As a Community Partner, our club sponsors an annual "Curl For A Cause" bonspiel, with profits going to local service clubs. The club provides free instruction to students from various schools in the area. No matter what your interest, come on down to the ECC and check out our sport and our facility.

 Ontario Stick Curling Chamionship:

 the CurlON Stick Curling Advisory Group is holding two competitions this season. They are holding events for 2 different disiplines of stick curling. First the 4 person team event. this will aligin with other CurlOn events as far as rules, the difference being the type of delivery. The second event is a 2 person team. The 2 Person event follows the Canadian Stick Curling Association (CSCA) rules of play with each player on a team staying at opposite ends, throwing 6 rocks for 3 ends each for a total of 6 ends.  There is a 3 rock "no removal" rule no matter where they are on the sheet and there is no sweeping between hog lines. Both these event are currently up on CurlON's site and a flyer for the events can be found HERE.

ENNISMORE CURLING CLUB GARAGE AND BAKE SALE --  A HUGE SUCCESS

 The Curling Club's arena floor was covered with dozens of tables; the tables were covered with what at least seemed to be more merchandise than ever before. And with hundreds of buyers searching for items they desperately needed, the sale earned just over $5000.00, only a few dollars short of last year's all time record. The money will provide a lot of support for the Curling Club activities.

None of this could have happened without an enormous amount of planning and work. Our Club manager, JOHN NORTON, organized crews to get the arena ready and to set up the tables, and he served as "receiver general" for drop offs. Can you imagine how many hours it takes to unpack the thousands of items people donated, sort them and set them out on the tables? And this is to say nothing of the time required to price each item. In short, the Garage and Bake Sale is a major undertaking from its beginning to the several days of cleaning up after the event.

Club members owe a large thank you to all the volunteers and to the many donors who provided items for the sale. But especially, thanks go to DIANNE HARRIS and MARILYN SMITH who headed up the event again this year and to SYRIE GARDNER  and CYNTHIA GUERIN who looked after the baking section. The host of volunteers are too many to thank individually, but notable mention needs to go to BILL INGRAM, MURRAY and JOANNE SKINNER, LINDA MURRAY and ALVA WAKEFORD who were there for many long days, and to DONNA YEOMANS who provided expert pricing help in the hours shortly before the sale began. And last but certainly not least, DOUG HARRIS, Dianne's husband, was there helping every day the work was  going on. That is beyond the call of duty.

 

 

 


Curl for a Cause Impact

Osprey Lookout

 Our 2018 Curl for a Cause dollars are already  hard at work. The Osprey viewing platform at Ennismore Waterfront Park has been refurbished. If you haven’t been there – follow the walking trail from the grassy section of the park.  You can check out the memorial gardens at the same time. Thanks to Mike Richardson for putting our donation to a good use and sending the photo. Mike advises this is just a start of the local trail work using our $5000 Curl for a Cause donation.  

 

 

ECC Recognition by Ennismore Horticultural Society

A dedication service was held on June 10 at the new memorial garden at Ennismore Waterfront Park. This garden was made possible from several donations and hardworking volunteers.

 The Glen Fiddich 

 

The 2018 version of the Glen Fiddich bonspiel was held Jan 20 with a sold-out event and more than 20 new curlers largely from the Ennismore Curling Club Learn to Curl program‎.

‎The Mike Bosilijevac rink of Linda Bosilijevac, Erika Howe-Gallagher and Michael Gallagher edged out the Jim Jobbitt rink by a quarter of a point to take the overall championship. A great day was had by all and it was amazing to see the new curlers develop strong curling skills and have a great time. 

Thanks to Marshall Aggregate Repair for their event sponsorship and to the many sponsors that generously donated so many incredible items.

‎The photo below shows the full house of curlers enjoying their first game of the day and curling career for some.

Curl for a Cause Dollars at Work 

 


We had a work bee on Saturday at the Ennismore Memorial Forest and spread about 50 yards of mulch.We were fortunate to have a good turnout of volunteers with trailers and a farm tractor loading the wood chips to facilitate the process.A lot of muscle went into the spreading as well, with the ladies working right along with the men.We are working hard to get all our ducks in a row and are ready now to advertise .We now have 5 pods measuring 8 meters by 4 meters so would be able to place 15 trees.If you have a chance to visit the park you will see where mulch is placed in a pod toward the front of the other pods  and this is where we will place the stone that will have the plaque honouring our donors.Hopefully we will be able to get the stone in by the end of May.We don't want to travel across the grass with heavy equipment until it's really firm.Our plant sale is on May 27th and we will move any hostas that we don't sell to the park to edge the pods.Our subcommittee is lucky to have Ian Deslauriers, Bill Brouwer and Mary Lou Young who are dedicated to getting this project up and running.

Many thanks again for your help,

Ennismore and District Horticultural Society
