We are participating in the CurlON province-wide 50/50!
Every purchase you make supports youth curling in Ontario.
Specifically, you support youth curling here at the Barrie Curling Club by clicking or tapping on the "Buy Now" button below.
How Does it Work?
- CurlON has done all the administrative legwork for us by securing the lottery license;
- Clubs sell tickets from a link that identifies their club as the seller ("Buy Now" button below);
- Sales will be returned to the club at 40%
- There is a monthly 50/50 draw, and 3 early bird prizes of $500 each;
- Tickets are sold at 50 for $100, 20 for $50 and 5 for $20
In short: This benefits the club directly, and by being a province-wide campaign, the jackpot will be a very healthy sum!

UPDATED 12 FEBRUARY 2021
Per the Government of Ontario release this afternoon, Simcoe-Muskoka will be moving to Stage Red of the Covid Framework starting Tuesday, February 16, for at least two weeks. Unfortunately this pushes our earliest possible reopening date beyond where the Board feels it is feasible to attempt to reopen. The Board will be sending information out early next week regarding your membership fees. As a reminder, you will be able to select the option to contribute your unused fees back to the club, make a donation and get a tax receipt, get a credit toward 2021-2022 fees, or get a refund.
UPDATED 07 JANUARY 2021
The club will be closed for curling activity for the duration of the Province of Ontario's 28-day lockdown, which began December 26, 2020. Please stay tuned for additional updates as we near the end of the lockdown period.

Re: Simcoe Muskoka Goes to Stage Control - Red
Good afternoon BCC members,
In light of today’s announcement by the provincial government that Simcoe Muskoka is moving to Stage Control – Red, we want to assure you that the Board of Directors is working diligently in this difficult time to ensure the long-term health and viability of your Barrie Curling Club.
According to the Government of Ontario’s Covid-19 Framework, Stage Red unfortunately means we must halt curling activity for a period of at least 28 days, effective Monday, December 14.
The Board of Directors met on Dec 7 and are committed to resumption of curling in the 2020/21 season as both government restrictions and financial realities allow. We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and communicate next steps as we have a clearer understanding as to how long our shutdown will last.
In regard to the membership fees you have paid, we will have the following options available should we sustain a significant loss to our scheduled activities. Any amount would represent a prorated season. Those options will include:
- Contribute unused fees to club operations;
- Credit of the unused portion of your membership fees toward 2021-2022 activity fees;
- Donate unused fees to the National Sport Trust Fund for a charitable tax receipt;
- Refund unused fees.
Fee calculations will be available at a later date.
Board of Directors
Barrie Curling Club
