The summer is about to get hotter.
Ottawa Capital Pride 2017 week begins on August 21, 2017. The Rainbow Rockers are proudly marching in the Ottawa Capital Pride parade on August 27, 2017 with the Ottawa Qball Softball League. Come join us! Show up in vibrant rainbow colours, dress up your curling broom, dust off your rock head curling hats and get ready to be loud and proud!
This year’s pride parade takes place from 1:30 to 4/5:00 pm. Groups are required to gather earlier at the march staging area which is located near the curling club on Argyle Street. We are awaiting confirmation of when our group will receive our call time for parade staging. Stay tuned for more details!
Are you in? For more information, you can email Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org AND watch for updates on our Facebook page.
What is a great way to kick off summer? How about a BBQ and some Bocce Ball on June 27th?
The cost is $10 per person (payment to be collected at the event) and includes food and bocce. BYOB but please make sure you arrange for designated drivers or public transport.
This event will be held at 221 North River Road (near the Cummings Bridge and where Rideau Street becomes Montreal Road), the home of our league treasurer Steve. Arrive by 6:15 p.m., games start at 6:30 p.m. sharp. Rain or shine! Please note, there is no parking on River Road but there are several options on side streets.
Bocce is a fun and easy game to learn so beginners are welcome! Games will be played on the lawn of the park across the street along the Rideau River. Teams of two are encouraged to sign up in advance, please indicate your team with your RSVP.
Bring your friends, partners, and any new or prospective league members to give them a chance to get to know our group. Members of the Executive will be on-hand to meet people and answer questions. Please RSVP to Laurie at email@example.com before Friday, June 23, 2017
Thanks again to the organizers, the curling club, the volunteers and especially to the league members for another successful curling season. See you all again in the fall!
