The Bradford Curling Club has many sponsors in the community, if you are ever in need of the services which they provide, we would ask you to take them into consideration.

A list of these sponsors can be found on this page, by clicking on the sponsor logo on that page you can access the individual websites.


Thank you to these sponsors and their committment to the sport of curling in Bradford.

We are pleased to announce the Bradford Curling Club has been chosen, in memory of the late Superintendent Mark Grant, to receive a defibrillator as part of the Canada's 911 Ride Foundation.
Superintendent Grant was a 32 year member of the York Regional Police force and a member of the Bradford Curling Club, as a curler on Frank Badowich's Monday CYOR team , who at the age of 54 died as a result of a motor vehicle accident
The Canada 911 Ride Foundation hosts an annual police escorted motorcycle ride to raise funds and awareness of the foundations causes. These include helping families of fallen emergency services workers, helping children who have been victims of violent crimes, as well as working in conjunction with the MIKEY Network to make defibrillators more readily available to save lives.
The Canada 911 Ride Foundation will also donate a plaque in memory of Superintendent Grant to be hung beside the defibrillator.
As part of the agreement the Bradford Curling Club will be required to have several club members undergo training on the proper usage of this defibrillator.
The Bradford Curling Club would like to thank both the Canada 911 Ride Foundation and the MIKEY Network for providing this valuable equipment to our club.


We have some great news for next curling season, the CYOR Men's Division has agreed to use money they have raised, through the current  curling season, to have the striking band on our stones reconditioned.

Our curling stones are one of our greatest assets with a replacement cost in access of $ 40,000. To extend the 50 year life of a set of curling stones it is necessary to recondition the running surface and striking band. This will be the first time the striking bands have been done.

The strikeband is the key in determining the life of a curling stone. Granites curling stones will chip in half moon shapes throughout the middle of the strikeband. Once this type of chipping has begun these stones cannot be re-profiled as too much material needs to be removed to get below the chip affecting the weight and dimensions of the stones.

Thank you to the CYOR Division for making this possible.

The BCC kitchen is sporting a new microwave oven made possible through the genorosity of one of our sponsors and club curlers.

Thank you to Balchen Chiropractic Centre and Kendall Balchen for donating this new microwave to the club.

New Ice Scraper

Thanks to the efforts of Gary Lamb the Bradford Curling Club has taken delivery of it's new battery powered ice scraper.

The total cost of our refurbished scraper came in a lot less than the proposed price of about $ 6000. With 13 people presently committed to donate $200.00 to the club, through the CCA donation plan, we could pay the machine off this year with about 7 more people coming on board.

The 13 previously mentioned people committed to a two year program, but with the lower cost of the scraper and 7 additional people we would only need a one year $ 200.00 committment from everybody.

The pictured scraper is not exactly like ours but it gives members the idea of what we have now as versus what we were using. This machine in addition to being a newer machine will allow the ice crew to turn the ice over much faster than the old cord powered machine.

Now how can you help the club, it is quite easy go to our fundraiser page, click on the CCA donation program, which is a tax deductible program and follow the instructions.
