History of the Tarlton-Robertson

In the early 1930’s the Hamilton Thistle Club realized there was a need for older male Ontario curlers to have their own major bonspiel. In 1934 they initiated such a spiel and gained sponsorship from the Ontario Curling Association, who presented the OCA Seniors Trophy for the 4-day, 48-rink event. At one time Ross Tarlton Sr. managed the event. In addition he served as President of the OCA, and in 1966/1967 was created a life member of that organization.

In 1987 the Thistle Club closed; after one year in Orillia the bonspiel came to Guelph where it has since remained. Partnership with the OCA ceased in 1993, and shortly thereafter the sponsors became the Tarlton and Sleeman families. In 1888 George Sleeman, the grandfather of the present owner of Sleeman Breweries, became the first president of the new Royal City (Curling) Club, and con- tinued for many years to be an active supporter of curling in Guelph.

In 2012 the Robertson Family became a major sponsor in memory of “Mac” Robertson who owned and operated Crown Dairy from 1941 to 1965 when it was a distributor for Sealtest Dairy Products in the Guelph area. He started curling in 1952 and enjoyed his curling and “socializing” for over 40 years.
Ernie Barber was a life time teacher both locally and abroad. He was a long-time curler and supporter of the Guelph Curling Club.

Take a good look at the fine OCA Seniors Trophy to see if your club won in the early years. Guelph is there for 1936!
