Galt Junior Curling Classic Cancellation
Monday, September 8th, 2014
It is with sadness that I must advise you of the cancellation of the Galt Junior Curling Classic bonspiel. Galt Curling Club has experienced a compressor problem that is preventing them from having playable ice in time for this event.
I am working with the club to examine alternate dates to run the event at Galt but am also conscious of not being in conflict with any other established OJCT events.
Once I have established a go forward position for the event either at Galt or another facility I will reach out to all the confirmed teams for this event and those on the wait list to solicit interest for an alternate date and/or location. It is my intention to do everything possible to have a replacement event run this fall.
I have not cashed a single entry cheque so there will be no worries on that side for any teams.
My sincere apologies for any problems this may cause for your teams.

Already Thinking About Next Season?
Friday, April 18th, 2014
Clubs across the province have turned off their compressors, or are soon closing up for the season... and here you are thinking about next season already!? As if April snow isn't enough!
Well, you're in luck. Summer curling is right around the corner, and the KW Granite Club or Oakville Curling Club may have a bantam/junior league that works for you. Check them out, and support these great clubs during the summer months.
Don't forget to keep checking the event schedule and @OJCTcurling for updates on your favourite OJCT events for the next tour season.
