Club History

In 1962 an intrepid group of businessmen and curlers took on the task of erecting a curling rink in the area, and in the fall of 1963 the curling season opened at the Lancaster and District Curling Club at the Lancaster and District Curling Club. A ladies’ auxiliary was formed and those early years brought many happy times of good curling, good friends and good fun. In 1978 one executive was installed and a more cohesive group worked at the many improvements. Outside Invitational Spiels such as the Fisherman’s Bonspiel, Outside Mixed and the Ladies’ Spiel established Lancaster as the place to be not only for competition but also for the delicious servings of Lancaster Perch. At the present time an active and progressive executive continues to make curling enjoyable.

Quote is taken from the first Lancaster and District Newsletter written by Jim Hill in the spring of 1963.

” As most of you know, the Roaring Game, originated in Scotland and was brought to Canada by the Scottish Regiments about 250 years ago. It is still one of the few remaining amateur sports promoting friendliness, honour and good sportsmanship. We are happy to say that this code was incorporated into the foundations of the Lancaster & District Curling Club. From comments both within the district and from distant areas, we can be justly proud of the reputation we have gained. May we do all we can in the future to maintain this standard and always further the cause of good fellowship.”
