Welcome

Welcome to the 2019 Canadian Gay Curling Championship (CGCC) and Over the Rainbow Bonspiel. The Rainbow Rockers Curling League and the Ottawa Curling Club are very excited to host the 13th annual Over the Rainbow Bonspiel and humbled to be hosting the CGCC for the 2nd time. We are honored to be welcoming teams from right across our country, from one coast to the other.

In addition to the friendly competition on the ice, the organizing committee has prepared a weekend of fun & entertainment off the ice. Join us for the opening ceremonies at 7:00pm Thursday March 21st. The banquet will be held Saturday night at the Ottawa Police Association building just around the corner from the Ottawa Curling Club. There will be daily 50/50 draws; cash prizes, and prizes from some of our generous sponsors: Moosehead, Pivot and Capital Curling Supplies

We are very thankful to our sponsors this year: Skanes General Contracting, The Ottawa Curling Club, Pivot Clothing, Moosehead, Best Western Victoria Suites, Capital Curling Supplies, “Bobby’s Table”, Hogline Curlers Pro Shop & Donald Walker Insurance. We would also like to give special mention to the manager of the OCC, Dalal Abou-Eid, without whose support this event would never be the great success it always is.

Finally, thank you to all the curlers who return every year and and who also encourage your fellow curlers, family and friends to come out and take part as well. We look forward to a fabulous 4 days of curling; there will be winners, but there certainly WON’T BE any losers. Thank you for your continued support!!! If you have any questions, or concerns during the spiel, please never hesitate to reach out to any of the organizing committee….we appreciate any and all feedback.

Good Curling
