At this time there are no block bookings for participants at any particular accommodation. Below are a few of the economical options in close proximity to the venue.

                    Parking. The venue is downtown Ottawa and there is available street parking in and around the venue.  One of the disadvantages to being located downtown is that parking is not abundant at the venue which is why car pooling and city transit is advised if possible. Here are some of the options for parking:
                        • Rideau Curling Club. There will be half of the lot roped off for the event organizers and vendors leaving approximately 10 spots available at no cost.
                        • Kelly Funeral Home off of Cooper. We will get permission from KFH to park on a day by day basis. We will send out a Facebook message the night before to let you know if it is available. Without permission, trespassers will be towed.
                        • Street Parking. Cooper, Percy, Lisgar, Broson all have available pay for use street parking
                        • City of Ottawa. There is a City parking lot at 687 Somerset St
                        • There are many parking lots in the general area. Please take note of all signs and restrictions listed as most are privately owned.
                        Food. The Rideau Curling Club has a fully function kitchen and eating area inside of their facility. The current plan is that the RCC will have their kitchen open for lunch and supper options as well as serve finger food, snacks, beverages from their bar between 1000-2200 daily. Most events have a one hour lunch and supper break to leave enough time to eat at the venue or a preferred local establishment.

                          The Venue will offer Pizza and Hotdogs at any time throughout the day as well as Lunch time meals between 1000-1300h and Supper Meals between 1600-1900h

                          There are many food options close to the venue including Pizza Pizza, Tim Hortons, and six + restaurants within a quick walk of the venue.

                          Outside meals will not be allowed to be consumed inside the venue if the kitchen is open. Coffees, waters, and snacks etc bought off-site and consumed in the gaming area will not be a problem as long as players are mindful of their garbage.

                          Beverages. The venue will have a fully staffed bar that will serve a large range of beverages. There are many beers on tap and beverages can be consumed in all gaming spaces.  All gaming convention attendees will be expected to show their identification if they choose to order alcoholic beverages and the legal drinking age is 19 years in Ontario.   No outside alcoholic beverages will be allowed.
