The Host Club
The host club is the West Kildonan Curling, a fully
accessible curling club in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
During the summer of 1919 (in Winnipeg, Manitoba,
Canada) when times were tough, a meeting was held and arrangements were
made with Kildonan Presbyterian Church to lease some land for a curling
Shares were sold to raise money to buy the (mostly second hand) building
materials and mostly volunteers erected a three sheet curling rink.
The water was used from the Red River, put into barrels and hauled up the
bank by horses and carried to the club. There were 40 members and all had
to provide their own rocks.
The rink operated there for 14 years, then due to lack of street car
service, it folded. Members still kept together and rented ice at the
Civic and St. John’s Curling Club during the next fives seasons (just like
it had began back in 1917-18 with two sheets at St. John’s and three
sheets at Elmwood in 1918-1919).
In 1938 Hilton Grose, Vic Siddall, Harry Tait, Payson Bancroft, Harry
Parker, Bill Scorer met to organize and build a club with three sheets on
the site of the historic battle of Seven Oaks.
Later two more sheets were added giving the Club a five sheet rink, with
artificial ice and gas heaters. The members were very proud of their
“curling home” and it brought a sport of fun and friendship to a whole new
The club has come a long way from carrying water by horse, to using
machines to scrape the ice. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the
people who walk through its doors. They carry on a tradition of friendship
and hard work that together make the West Kildonan Curling Club a place
you call HOME!
In the past 10 years the WKCC has had its shed rebuilt and as of 2007 is
pleased to announce it has added a fully accessible lift for curlers with
disabilities, and started the Manitoba wheelchair curling program out of
this facility. Also added were fully accessible washroom/change room
facilities at ice level to accommodate players with physical needs.
The West Kildonan Curling club is proud to be at the forefront of support
for sports events for persons with disabilities in
