We are a group of like-minded women who come out to have fun curling several days a week.
On Tuesdays (11:15am & 1:30pm) and Thursdays (1:30pm) we have Club curling. This is a less competitive, more relaxed type of game. During the course of a curling season ladies will play on four different teams corresponding with four consecutive draws. Each draw is usually six weeks in length. Having the opportunity to play on different teams enables all curlers, especially the new participants, to “mix & mingle” with more of the Day Ladies membership.
Whether it is Club or Flight, our goal is to always enjoy the game and have fun while refining our skills.
For more information about Day Ladies please contact Joan or Pat.
Wednesday Evening only – 5:15 PM
Convenors – Liz Baer, Carol Fitzpatrick – rkccladiesclubcurling
For "Club" curling, members sign up individually for each draw or series of games and play every Wednesday at 5:15 pm. There are 4 separate draws in the curling season . This season the 4 draws run for 6 weeks each. Before each draw, players are either randomly placed on a team or selected by the skips. All players are rated on their curling ability to make every attempt to keep the teams equal in skill level. Those who participate will get a chance to play with different curlers in each draw, which gives the new curler a chance to meet other members.
Monday – 5:00 PM or 7:10 PM
Convenors – Deb Wilkin
"Flight" curling is a great way for four friends to curl together for the winter. The members create their teams and they stay together as a "rink" for the entire season. If you do not already have a team please indicate that you are available for flight curling and the convenor will try to assist you with getting a team.
Chair: John Pratt

Tuesday and Thursday @ 9:00AM
Tuesdays and Thursdays at nine AM are devoted to the popular and unique RKCC Day Mens Club format. Each day you will curl with and against 7 different people. As well, each curler curls two ends at each position (ie two ends at lead, two ends at second, two ends at vice and two ends at skip). Curlers gather at 8:30ish when our team of skilled handicappers make up the teams for that day. Their goal is to make the teams competitively even as possible. They do a very good job.
The club usually provides a lunch at nominal cost. The emphasis for Day Mens Club is on fun and fellowship. This is a great way to quickly meet and get to know other curlers in the club.
During the year, the Day Mens Program put on two in-house bonspiels which usually take place on Fridays. Curlers sign up individually and are assigned to a team who compete in two games that day. Lunch is provided and the cost to participate in these events is very reasonable.
Monday @ 9:00AM, 11:15AM and 1:30PM
Monday is devoted to the Day Mens Senior Flight program. Players must be 50 yrs or older. Thirty two to thirty six teams are formed or selected at the start of the year and compete through the season in four flights of approx. eight teams. Flight curling runs through three time slots 9:00AM, 11:15 AM and 1:30PM. Teams within a flight play each other at the end of which one or two teams move up or down the ladder based their win loss records. This reshuffling of the deck happens twice during the season and helps ensure that teams find their best competitive niche. At season end, a winner and bragging rights are determined for each flight.
If you are interested in being on a flight team, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate this. Spares are always needed and if you are interested, we will place you on the spares list.
On Monday’s, a lunch is served at nominal cost by our own members. This has become a very popular weekly event.
Chair: Mario Fabbro
Thursday @ 6:15PM, 8:30PM
Convenor: Anthony Hale
Evening club curling takes place on Thursday evening. Game times are at 6:15, 8:30 . There are 4 draws per season with each draw lasting 6 weeks. Each draw there is a draft to assign players to teams with the emphasis on meeting new people and networking within the club.
Tuesday @ 5:00PM, 7:10PM and 9:20PM
Convenor: Phil Tomsett
Evening Men’s also has a Flight night. As this is a competitive night, teams choose who they wish to play with and sign up prior to the season beginning. It is our largest league at the club with 42 teams registered last year To ensure that you are registered to play for the first draw, please ensure that your card of intent is filled out with your registration. Someone will contact you prior to the season beginning to inform you of who you are playing with and when you play.
Friday @ 5:10PM, 7:15PM and 9:15PM
21 games (excluding playoffs)
Friday Mixed curling has 3 options for curlers. There is a competitive flight format option, a recreational flight option that is “less” competitive, and a club format in which the teams are shuffled in each of the 3 draws. Players in the flight section form their own teams and stay together throughout the year. For members looking to join a flight team every effort will be made to accommodate you.
The club format is perfect for new curlers who want to meet people in the club as well as for individuals or couples who do not want to commit to a flight team. Teams are formed at the start of each of the 3 draws. For couples who wish to play together please let the convenor know and we again will do our best to accommodate you. For those that do not wish to be on the same team again let the convenor know. Games are 6 ends.
Sunday @ 4:00PM
This is another opportunity to enjoy a more recreational atmosphere. The format is a flight style in which you form your own teams. There is just 1 yearlong draw with points accumulating through the year to determine the champion. This draw fills up quickly and priority is given to returning teams.
Mixed curling will be hosting 2 special curling events this year. On Dec 8, 2018 will there will be a Christmas Turkey Spiel limited to 48 curlers. This event is open to all members of the club and will be a 2 game club format spiel.
Our signature Empire Life Bonspiel is planned for Feb 8th and 9th. This is a 36 team, 2 day spiel organized by Dale Marecak and Mary Kelly. The spiel is open to teams from RKCC and other clubs as well.

The Stick League was organized for curlers who could no longer use a conventional delivery from down in the hack or more commonly called, a slide delivery. Everyone in the league uses a curling delivery stick to deliver the rock.
The league is not restricted only to those who cannot throw from the slide position.
Anyone who is willing, and interested, to use a curling stick is welcome to participate.
All full members who curl using a curling delivery stick are allowed to spare in the stick leagues.
No experience is necessary. We will be happy to teach you!
There are two different sections, which are not mutually exclusive.
Two Person Stick League Wednesday @ 11:15AM, 12:15PM, 1:15PM
Teams are composed of two curlers.
Games are 6 ends with each player throwing 6 rocks each end.
Sweeping is allowed only from the hog line in.
There is a Social Member (enhanced) Membership for a reduced membership fee. This non-voting member has the same privileges as a Social Member, but with optional on-ice privileges which are limited to once a week participation in the 2-person Stick League. No sparing is allowed.
Four Person Stick League Thursday @ 11:15AM
Teams are composed of four curlers, mixed or otherwise.
All normal curling rules apply with the exception of some “INHOUSE” rules enacted by the membership.
There may be some dates that are unavailable for stick curling because of other ice priorities.
Check the schedule on the notice board or the Club Calendar for game date changes.
Open Doubles – Wednesday @ 7:30 pm and 8:55 pm
Chair: Peter Coughlin
Convenors: John Leinweber, Mike Flowers
We are excited to have Doubles as a regular league option for RKCC – it is the fastest growing part of curling. Plan to come out and try some Doubles curling this season. Many people say that Doubles curlers are the friendliest. A team of two can be any combination of male or female players, and no previous Doubles experience is necessary. It is a shorter game, with six ends and in each end only five rocks are thrown per team. There are some important rule differences from regular curling – these include positioned rocks at the start of each end, a different free guard zone rule, and the possible power play option. Games are fast paced and there is often more of a focus on “draws and taps” to score points. Want to learn about the rules? Curling Canada has the current rules posted on their website and if you want to see some of the pros making it look easy, the Curling Canada YouTube channel has game coverage from the 2019 World Championship.
Ready to sign up? Teams will be scheduled to play Wednesday evening either 7:30 pm (game one) or 8:55 pm (game two). There is a maximum of twenty four teams. The season is divided into two draws: the first draw is from October 2nd, 2019 to December 18th, 2019, for a total of twelve games. This will be a round robin format, with teams rotating through the roster and alternating between game one and game two start times. At the end of the first draw, teams will be divided into A and B groups, based upon total points scored. The second draw goes January 8th, 2020 to March 31st, 2020, with a total of eleven games. Doubles teams will play within either Group A or Group B for the second draw and teams will continue to alternate between game one and game two start times.
Our Committee will have the schedule/standings posted on line. Game results are tracked with points for wins/loss/ties. Teams are registered with two members and a spares list will be generated. We know that there may also be some curlers who would like to try Doubles, but may not have a team member ready to go. We would encourage curlers to try out the Free Agent Listing, under the new Doubles category. This is on the club website, under Members services. Our committee will also lend a hand, as best we can to match up interested Doubles curlers.
Still not sure if you want to try Doubles? We will have an early pre-season meeting for orientation and a chance to sort out any questions. See you on the ice.
