Club History

The club was established in 1929 by a group of First World War veterans living in Assiniboia, who approached the municipality for a grant to start a curling club. The club was built on the east side of Banting Street behind the museum building across from Superstore. The first directors were Frank Ness, Tom Corbett, H. Hunt, D. Ballantyne and R.R. Kirby.

The club was established as a war memorial hence the name, Assiniboine Memorial.

Quote from the 50th anniversary program:

“Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club carries the pride of honouring these men and all others who fought for freedom in World War I and II. We are mindful of the task we have undertaken and endeavor to carry out our curling in a friendly and sportsmanlike manner. We are proud of them; we hope they would have been proud of us.”


Club colours were originally set as green and gold, but Wildewood had already selected those colours, so they changed them to White and Purple. In 1973 the club switched to gold with purple trim.

Current Logo

A contest was held to design the logo. It was sent to all the local schools and a design was selected. It is a man wearing a Scottish tam.
