Hello All Tam Heather Members, 

    Tam Heather would like to welcome all NEW Curling members, as well as all of the returning members for the 2022/23 Winter season. 

    Back to Basics! 

    With Covid in the rearview mirror (for the most part), Tam is happy to be able to start the 2022 winter season without any restrictions in place. We will continue to follow the Public Health guidelines and Provincial guidance as we move forward. Please do what makes YOU comfortable! Some members may choose to continue masking and some members will not, both are acceptable, let’s be kind and respectful to each other in remembering this.

    A Few Reminders as we Return to Curling: 

    1. We will be following Curling Canada/CurlOn General Rules of play, allowing for full sweeping from end to end.  Regular rules of play to start the season. 

    2. It is time to check your grippers and brush heads to ensure they are in good condition. If not, visit the Tam Pro Shop for a variety of grippers and brush heads. 

    3. Please keep your hands and knees off the ice, these marks affect the quality of the ice, take considerable time to fix and impacts the next curling draw. 

    4. There will be sanitizing wipes available for the players to wipe the rock handles if so desired.  There are dispensers located in between sheets B & C and F & G. 

    5. The bell system is in effect again this year – it will ring 1hour and 35 minutes after the scheduled game start – you can finish the end and play one more. 

    6. Returning this year:  Saturday evening “Mixed Tag Draw” – 6:30 to 8:30PM  Wednesday “Anything Goes League” tag draw – 2:00 to 4:00PM 

    7. The kitchen will open on Tuesday, October 11th and the operating hours are 8:30am-7:30pm Monday to Friday.  Curling members are cordially invited to come to the clubhouse to use the locker rooms, lounge, and bar for beverages, snacks and meals.

    Summer is behind us and we’re all ready for another season of curling and tennis. It will be exciting to start back where we left off before the pandemic.

    Neil and I are ready for another season of cooking and putting together new menus and recipes.

    We have already started with the meat pies and lasagna and hopefully you have ordered since we will not be making any more until the end of the season.


    In December we will be making our savoury tourtieres for the Christmas season. Watch out for the Club email and a posting at the Kitchen window to place your order.

    It was unfortunate but with the pandemic we lost most of our day time staff.

    The Tam Heather Kitchen is currently seeking a part time Short Order Cook and part time Day Time Wait staff. Anyone who knows of someone looking for a part time job give them my email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We need staff to serve you better.


    Tam Heather will be offering practice ice during the day to all registered Daytime curlers, for the week of Monday, October 3rd to Friday, October 7th from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  
    This includes - Day Time Ladies, Venerables and Mixed Seniors.  
    Practice ice during the day will be in a drop in format, so please share the sheet you are practicing on, if no other sheets are available at that time, if possible.
    Thanks & Good Curling! 


    I am sending this on behalf of the House of Curling Pins, a website set up by and for curling pin collectors, whose primary objective is creating a comprehensive Curling Pin reference site for collectors. The website URL is https://houseofcurlingpins.com/index.html should you wish to check it out.

    I am asking for some help in identifying a pin on the site so that it can be put in the proper place on the site. I have attached a photo of the pin for reference. It has "1949 Goodwill Bonspiel Toronto" printed on it. Having done some on-line research, I have seen that there is no direct information on a Goodwill Bonspiel.

    So, I am sending an email to Toronto area clubs which may have hosted this bonspiel, which is why I am forwarding this to you.

    I am wondering if The Tam Heather Curling Club has a Librarian, Historian, or even an old curler, who has some knowledge of pins issued by your club/organization who might be able to advise if this pin is a version of a pin issued for a club or corporate bonspiel.

    Any information that can be supplied for the pin would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

    In preparation for the start of play, practice ice will be available in the evenings Monday Oct 3 through Friday Oct 7, all day on Saturday Oct 8 (9am-3pm), and then again during the day on Monday Oct 10 (9am-3pm). There will be no practice ice on Sunday, Oct 9.

    There will be 4-1-hour evening time slots each day on Monday Oct 3 to Friday Oct 7 (5-6pm, 6-7pm, 7-8pm, 8-9pm).

    Practice ice can be booked using the on-line Ice Booking feature on the Tam website at www.tamheather.ca. Simply log in and go to the Ice Booking menu. Make sure to change the month to October to see the available time slots.

    ice booking


    After selecting your favourite sheet, you will see the available time slots. Select one and then add the name of your practice partner(s) in the appropriate spots (or “none”). Upon completion of your reservation, you will receive an email confirmation. Please be sure to cancel your reservation if you find that you are unable to attend at the reserved time. This will make the ice available for someone else.

    Additional requirements to be aware of:

    1. Reservations are limited to a maximum of 4 players per sheet. If you wish to play a practice game (4 vs. 4), perhaps consider reserving 2 sheets, using both sheets to practice for the first half hour; then all move to one sheet and play a game for the remaining half hour.
    2. Practice sessions are limited to 1 hour in length.
    3. Members are asked to limit their practice to 1 session per day; those little-used curling muscles will thank you and this will help ensure practice ice time for all.
    4. A couple of warm-up stretches while you are waiting might be a good idea.
    5. Sanitizing wipes will be provided for you to sanitize your rocks, if you wish to do so.  Dispensers will be located in between sheets B&C and F&G. 
    6. Unfortunately, bar and kitchen service are not yet available; so, we cannot invite you to stay for a drink or something to eat. We can only say how good it was to welcome you back and ask you to depart promptly in order that we start preparations for the next practice session.

    In addition, All Daytime leagues will have drop-in practice ice available to them (no booking required) between 10am-2pm on Monday Oct 3 to Friday Oct 7.

    Club Information

    Tam Heather, or the “Tam” as we call it, is an active friendly club located in the Morningside and 401 community of Scarborough. Tam Heather opened in 1973 as a curling club with eight sheets of ice, then two years later in 1975, the club expanded by adding five tennis courts, three of which were covered in the winter with a bubble. Thirty four years later, in 2009, a four court year-round covered structure was built.
