The main focus of The Governor General's Curling Club has been to recognize those who have made a significant contribution to curling, whether it be locally, provincially or nationally, not only as competitive curlers, but also as builders and administrators.  Some of its members are legends of the game.   One of its objectives is to promote the growth of curling in Canada and preserve its history.
