Recreational - Early
The Friday 4:45 p.m. recreational league is open to all Adult (including Young Adult, 29 years old or younger) members, Shiftworker members, Novice League members, Full Junior members and Adult Student members. This is a non-competitive league. Games are six ends. The objective is to have fun, get some exercise, and socialize with other members, before, during and after games. After the games have been played and a sociable beverage has been had, many members often enjoy Friday night dinner at the Club in our dining room.
This league welcomes men and women players of all skill levels. It particularly appeals to members who work in the Oshawa area or have flexible working hours, whose work day ends by 4:00 pm or 4:30 pm and like the idea of going right to the Club for an early game. It may appeal to Durham College and UOIT students who would like to get in some curling after Friday classes without interfering with Friday night social plans. This league also appeals to active seniors and retirees of all ages. The atmosphere is friendly. There is no pressure to win. And there is always cheerful banter and good conversation after the game. Whether you are thinking about taking up curling for the first time or you are an experienced player, come out and join us. We are a friendly group who will do our best to make sure you have a good time.
Over the course of the 2017-2018 season, starting on Friday October 20th, we expect to play five schedules of four or five games each, totalling 21 games, until the end of the season on April 13th, 2018. Our last game before the Christmas-New Years break will be on December 15th. We expect to resume play on January 5th, the start of the third schedule. (Based upon the preferences of the membership in previous seasons, we have opted not to play a scheduled game on December 22nd. However, at this time, the Club is expected to be open for anyone who would like to get some ice time, to practise or have a challenge match.) We will not be curling on November 24th due to the Mixed Doubles bonspiel. The Club will be closed on Good Friday, March 30th, so no curling that day.
The Club's Day of Champions is schedled for Sat. April 14th for the Recreational Leagues' bragging rights. The 4:45 p.m. league were the 2015 champions and runners-up in 2016.
The schedule may have to be adjusted in order to accommodate bonspiels, Curl Ontario and Toronto Curling Association competitions and ice maintenance scheduling.
