The Ottawa Valley Curling Association (OVCA) Board of Director`s have received a copy of the letter sent recently by Marco Ferraro to several individuals, and wishes to set the record straight regarding the events that led to the current stalemate between the OVCA and Curling Quebec (CQ) regarding the Caledonia Cup. This is in no way related to the decision made by the Branch to separate from CQ. That was a Branch decision and the OVCA played no part in it.
