Manitoba Organization: Eaton Curling Club

Presidents | Sources

The club, comprised of staff and family members of the T. Eaton Company, was formed in the 1924-1925 season. Not having a physical building, they rented ice at various city clubs. The club had the largest membership in the city in the late 1940s. For the 1948-1949 season, the club acquired the old Grain Exchange Curling Club with four sheets at 111 Mayfair Avenue and affiliated with the Manitoba Curling Association. The building had structural issues in 1968 and they moved to the Highlander until the club disbanded after the 1973 -1974 season.
