2019-20 O'Grady Challenge

As the winners of the final match against St. Vital CC representatives last season, AMCC curlers will once again be participating in the O'Grady Challenge. From the linked article:

In 1908 Colonel J.W. deCourey O’Grady, who was President of the Manitoba Curling Association, presented a trophy to encourage good will and promote curling matches between affiliated clubs in the Association, which at that time included clubs from North Western Ontario and parts of Saskatchewan. The official name is the O’Grady but is also affectionately known and called “The Old Buffalo”, the latter being taken from a figure of a bison standing in a defiant attitude on the trophy. This large beautiful trophy, which is still in competition today, can be seen at the Curling Hall of Fame in the Manitoba Sports Museum at the Sport for Life Centre, 145 Pacific Avenue, Winnipeg. Colonel O’Grady also served as President in 1911.

This year's event schedule can be found here.

A list of past AMCC curlers who participated in the event may be found here - along with the following statistics:

The Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club’s first challenge was on March 1, 1975 when they played host to the St. Pierre Curling Club and won their first match by a score of 18 to 5 and became holder of the O’Grady Challenge Trophy for the first time. Since 1975 through Spring of 2019, they have played in 61 matches and have also lost 6 games and won 6 games by default. There has been a total of 150 members of the Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club play in the competition to date.

Parking Changes - Effective Nov 14

Please be advised that demolition activities will begin at the former Vimy Arena site on Thursday, November 14. The following changes to AMCC parking arrangements will result:

  • A fence will be erected along the east property line of our parking lot. You may continue to park along the fence - but please utilize angle parking, as an access aisle to the back parking lot must be maintained at all times.

  • The back (north) parking lot will be open on a full-time basis. Younger curlers are asked to use this lot at times when large groups of seniors are in the building.

  • Construction staff are fully authorized to park and work in the north parking lot. In return for this access, their organization is looking after a significant portion of our snow clearing for this season, and have agreed to refurbish affected areas of the parking lot surface upon completion of construction. They will also be welcomed to frequent our lounge and restaurant at appropriate times - but they do have their own washroom facilities for their use on the construction site.

  • Please be extra cautious, and especially be on the lookout for construction staff and vehicles, when entering and exiting our parking lot areas.

See bulletin board postings and images below (tap to enlarge) for further details. Concerns related to this issue should be brought to the attention of the Facility Manager or Club President. Please make our new neighbors feel welcome over the next several months.

Cash 2500

Thanks to everyone who supports our 50/50 draws during the winter and our Senior Men's Bonspiel in March. It has allowed the Senior Men's League to make a number of donations to assist in repairs around the facility.
