The CCB was fortunate to have its very first National Blind and Vision Impaired curling bonspiel (now the annual AMI Canadian Vision Impaired Curling Championship) opened by then Governor General Adrian Clarkson.

Since then a number of notable people have assisted us at subsequent championships. This includes former Canadian and World Curling Champion Ed Werenich,  Brier champion Jean Michel Menard,  Lieutenant Governor of Ontario David Onley,  former president of the Canadian Paralympic Foundation Barry Winfield,  Afghan veteran and amputee Paul Franklin, President and CEO of AMI David Errington,  and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, among others.
