There have been two different Curling Clubs here in Canmore. The old Curling Rink was located on the other side of Bow Bridge on the land now known as Rundle Crescent. It consisted of 3 sheets of natural curling ice.
Members remember the flooding that would occur on warm days and the challenges natural ice gave while trying to make the perfect shot. 1988 marked the end of an era as the old Curling Rink was torn down, to be replaced by a new facility in our current location. The new facility originally served as the Athletes Village for the ’88 Winter Olympics, and was built with an eye toward being re-purposed as a 4-sheet curling rink once the games ended in February 1988.
The official Opening Ceremony of the new Curling Club was held on Saturday, October 29, 1988. Ken Ritchie, who is still a current Curling member, had the honour of throwing the first rock and Randy Nichols, also a current Curling Member, had the honour of cutting the Ribbon. This Club is proud of it’s history and where it all began. It shows in the longevity of some of our Curling Members who have been a part of our Club since the very beginning.
