SOME CURLING HISTORY FOR YOU…

http://curlinghistory.blogspot.com/2020/09/curling-in-adverts.html

In 2003 Marian Dupont took it upon herself to start ottawacurling.com. Other than Joe Pavia’s weekly Ottawa Sun curling column, there was no source for local community curling news. Not only did Marian report on local news, she also expanded the site to become a resource for the curling community. Marian did this all as a volunteer and at her own expense. I hope we can live up to her hard work as we launch the new site.

If you have anything to contribute – YOUR CLUB NEWS, WHO DID WHAT TO WHOM ON THE ICE, ETC. – FEEL free to reach out to me at joe@hoglinecurling.com or via our facebook page.
