Rules

  • The event will consist of eight-end games using the new five-rock rule.
  • As a club level event, there will be no officials or timers.
  • Teams are expected to finish in approximately two hours. The 8th end cannot start after two hours has elapsed. 
  • Ties during the round robin will be broken by a single warm draw to the button (skips rocks).  Anyone may throw the rock and anyone may sweep it.  Either handle can be thrown
  • Tie Breaking Rules
  • A warm draw to the button will be used to determine hammer.  The total distance from the pin will be used for any tie-breaking scenarios that cannot be resolved in the one planned tiebreaker draw. A full tiebreaker document will be posted before the first game
  • Teams consist of four or five people of any gender.  We prefer that at least three players be from the same club or region.  Out of town teams will be listed as their club or region.
  • WCF broom heads will not be required, but commercially available broom heads must be used (no homemade heads). Hardline brooms may not use the plastic insert. 
  • Stick curlers are welcome
