Established in 2007, this association got its start from enthusiasts in two active leagues operating in Toronto for curlers 70 and older – one at Thornhill Golf and Country Club and the other at Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, 28 teams in total. The association is sponsored by Diversicare Canada (homes for seniors) and, beginning in 2013, Senior Moving Services Inc. has joined as a second sponsor. The Grand Masters is sanctioned and assisted by the Ontario Curling Association.
Competition at the zone level is double knockout format using the same 16 zones as the OCA. The 16 zone winners compete in late March in a single knockout competition with three events.
Entry forms are sent to all Southern Ontario curling clubs. Entries close two weeks prior to zone play. Particular attention is made to OCA Masters and Stick Spiel dates so as not to conflict. Stick curlers are accepted.
Past Champions include:
Bob Edmondson’s team from Dixie Curling Club in 2014
Art Leganchuk’s team from Bayview Golf and Country Club in 2013
