Recreational - Early
The Friday 4:45 p.m. recreational league is open to all Adult members (including Young Adult, 29 years old or younger), 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, UOIT & Trent U. (Oshawa campus) 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. Stick players are welcome. We are a friendly group who will do our best to make sure you have a good time.
Over the course of the 2018-2019 season, starting on Friday October 19th, we expect to play five or six schedules of four or five games each, totalling 22 or 23 games, until the end of the season on April 12th, 2019. Our last game before the Christmas-New Years break will be on December 21st. We are scheduled to resume play on January 11th, the start of the third schedule. We will not be curling on February 1st due to the Mixed Doubles bonspiel. For your long-term calendar planning, this season Easter weekend falls from April 19th to 22nd, i.e. after the OCC's curling season has concluded.
The Club's Day of Champions is scheduled for Sat. April 13th for the Recreational Leagues' bragging rights. The 4:45 p.m. league was 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, ice maintenance and unforeseen events such as winter storms and unsafe road conditions.
