Governor General's Curling Club

The Governor General's Trophy is an Interprovincial double rink men's competition, played since 1874. Originally the final was played in the one-sheet rink at Rideau Hall, one game in the morning and one in the afternoon, using a cumulative points system to determine the winner.

Today, playdowns in the OVCA and Curling Quebec produce the two finalists. The final is traditionally played in Ottawa in conjunction with the Ladies Curling Association Lady Tweedsmuir double rink competition. A representative from the office of the Governor General of Canada attends the banquet and presents the trophies and pins to the participating teams. This year the event was held at Carleton Heights Curling Club.

Lanark Highlands Curling Club was the 2020 winner. Pictured below, Lieutenant Colonel Marc-Antoine Fecteau presents the trophy to Ken Wilson, Jody Royer, Mike Grinnell, John Wilson (Skip), Don Chassé, Kyle Hogan, Bill Woods Jr. (Skip), Bill Woods
