History Of The Assiniboia Curling Club
courtesy of Bill Batty
The first Curling Rink was built by the Assiniboia Curling Club in 1913, which ended up burning down in the spring of 1925. In the fall of 1925 a new four sheet Curling Rink was built by a new organization called the ASSINIBOIA CURLING RINK COMPANY LIMITED. The money was raised by this new company by selling shares.
In 1949 the Curling Rink was widened to make six sheets of ice.
On April 24, 1957 a public meeting of Assiniboia curlers was held to discuss the formation of a new association to take over the assets and liabilities of the previous ASSINIBOIA CURLING RINK COMPANY LIMITED, which resulted in a new association being formed called the ASSINIBOIA CO-OPERATIVE MEMORIAL CURLING CENTER. In 1961 this new association installed an artificial ice plant for the six sheet Curling Rink.
In 1971 the waiting room was taken down and a new cement block waiting room was built onto the old Curling Rink. In 1973 the rest of the old Curling Rink was taken down and a new four sheet cement block Curling Rink was added to the cement block waiting room completing the new Curling Rink. In 2001 this four sheet cement block Curling Rink was demolished and a new multi-purpose Community Center was erected, which included a four sheet Curling Arena.
This new Curling Rink was erected with four inches of foam insulation under the curling ice floor which is a great improvement in maintaining a much better curling ice surface.
