If you are 70 years of age or more and feeling your competitive curling days are over? Think again, and look at the GMCA, designed for Ontario men and women curlers 70 years and older, and leading to a OCA Provincial Championship
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 dates so as not to conflict. Stick curlers are accepted.
Past Champions include:
Art Leganchuk’s team from Bayview Golf and Country Club in 2013
Rod Matheson’s team from the Ottawa Curling Club in 2012
Austin Palmer’s team from Thornhill Golf and Country Club in 2011
Peter Barker’s team from Dixie Curling Club in 2010 and 2007
Gary Holmes’ team from St. Catharines Golf and Curling Club in 2009
Al Boyle’s team from Tam Heather Curling Club in 2008
