Fun, competition and relaxation… find it all at the Heather!
In the past thirty years, the Heather Curling Club has become a multi-purpose venue. It is a busy winter season with curling and rental of its smaller hall (up to 150 people). With 8 sheets of ice, the Heather provides ample room for bonspiels and other special curling events.
In the summer season, the Heather remains open for hall rentals, including both its smaller hall (150 people) and its rink-sized hall (up to 600 people). During Winnipeg’s summer-time Folklorama, the Heather hosts both the Pavilions for Brazil and India.
In addition, the Heather has food, licensed beverages and its own catering services.
The Heather Curling Club celebrates its 100th Birthday in 2016!!

Message from the President
A new season of curling is upon us. With the new season, the Heather Curling Club (HCC) has made some improvements: new rock handles with engraving for purchase and a new Board overseeing operations. Our goal this year is to increase the quality of play and the spirit level of curlers at our facility.
The Heather Curling Club is reaching a milestone this coming season. It’s our 100th Anniversary and have planned a few events to commemorate this fact. We are beginning with a fall social, a special Centennial Bonspiel during the Manitoba Open Bonspiel in 2016 and a Gala Dinner on January 30, 2016. We are also seeking current and past members to bring forward to the Centennial Committee: photos; memories and stories for our Heather Memory Corner. This will help build an oral historical focus. There is also the possibility of a Time Capsule.
I encourage everyone to show some Heather heart and join us through participating and celebrating the recreation of curling during our 100th year. It is truly a season of ‘Preserving Our Past and Building Our Future’.
