The Ottawa Valley/Outaouais area has proven that its Canada's Curling Capital - now its time to show the world! Please take a moment to read this open letter from our President, Al McPhee.
As you all know the OVCA has been able to push considerable funds to our member clubs over the last couple of years due to the success of the 2016 Tim Hortons Brier and Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings in 2017. I think it is safe to say, we all enjoy the benefits of helping host these large curling events.
Now, let’s get ready for our next adventure. It is time to Bring the World to Ottawa! The curling world that is!
The Ottawa Valley Curling Association is excited to be partnering with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group and Ottawa Tourism to bring the World Men’s Curling Championship to TD Place, in the heart of Lansdowne Park, from April 3 to 11, 2021.
