Sunday, November 18th: Marc Albert
Recent New Brunswick transplant, Marc Albert has played all over Canada, including parts of the Yukon and B.C coast as well as through his home province. His style of jazz and classical influenced folky blues creates a style and feel all his own. Drawing from influences such as Chet Baker, Tom Waits, James Taylor, Marc’s original pieces are well crafted, lyrical and happily nostalgic, paired with vocals that shine along with his classical fingerstyle playing.
Sunday, November 25th Jamieson Mackay (Click here for music sample)
Described as the sound of leaving a party alone to walk the store for cigarettes, Shadowhand creates a dark, down-tempo, and ambient accompaniment to the lyric songs of Ottawa’s Jamieson Mackay. It sounds like walking through a field at night. Maybe it just rained, but the sky is clearing, and you know before long you will see the moon.
“They convey moodiness in a way that is not altogether gloomy, enthralling the listener with subtle flourishes and a wide-open sound” – Ottawa Showbox
The Clubhouse has successfully hosted TWO Trivia Nights so far, and the participants have provided us with GLOWING feedback. Bring your team and test your knowledge as we host you on Wednesday, November 28th at 7:30pm for our next dose of Trivia Night. Take advantage of our Taco Night while you’re here, to make it an evening!
We hope to see you at The Clubhouse competing for top Trivia spot soon!

Winter is HERE! Ottawa received quite the snowfall this past Thursday into Friday, and we would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about our our outdoor footwear policy.
Absolutely NO OUTDOOR FOOTWEAR is allowed on the Indoor Courts (Tennis and Multi-Sport). It is crucial to the longevity of the courts, that we protect them against wetness and salt. Please make use of the trays/carpets at the entrance for each dome and if you must walk to your court, we ask that you remove your outdoor footwear first.
Your assistance in following this policy will help keep our courts clean as we get closer to a Winter Wonderland!
Rockcliffe Park Residents Association (RPRA) is kicking-off its Annual Fund Drive for Ward 13’s Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre (RRCRC) on Friday, November 30th from 6:00-8:00pm at St. Bartholomew’s Church (located at 125 MacKay Street). This will be a very special night of festivities including a Quartet from the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra. Everyone will receive a FREE glass of Proseco upon arrival, and an RSC FREE one-time Drop-in Yoga or Fitness Pass.
There will be a Cash Bar and a Silent Auction.
It’s a great opportunity to hang out with your neighbours, while at the same time support an organization which is providing extremely useful services to our community.
