Spares

Players must be a paid playing member of LCC (neither a social member, practice, nor competitive member) in order to spare.

Sunday Open Rules

The Sunday Night Open League follows the Leaside Curling Club Rules and the O.C.A & Curling Canada rules except where they exist below as part of the Sunday Night Open League rules.

Every team will play every week of the playoff season.
At the end of the third draw but prior to the start of the playoffs, teams have been moved flight to flight as usual.
Playoffs are within each Flight (ie. Teams within Flight A will play Flight A teams only)

GAMES

All playoff games are 8 ends (or less, a team may concede at any point - please be considerate of the need for later games to start on time and of club staff who need to complete their jobs for the evening).

TIEBREAKER

If tied after 8 ends, a full extra end is played using the Odd end direction ie. away from the change rooms. If still tied, the tie is broken by a draw to the button using the Even end direction ie. towards the change rooms. Only the throwing team may sweep. Any player on the team may throw the draw to the button.

BELL RULE DOES NOT APPLY

This does not mean you can take your time playing your games. Please do your best to play quickly in all games out of respect for your opponents and club staff.

SPARES

At all times, teams are expected to observe the spirit of fair play when finding spares. - Teams must field at least 3 curlers, two of whom must be original team members. This is different from the Regular Season rule. Teams without a minimum of 2 regular players forfeit the game.

All Leaside Curling Club members are eligible to spare in the playoffs, including those already playing for another team. - If you are filling a front-end position with a spare, the spare must be someone who plays front-end in whatever league or section they generally play in (if they play in another section) or spare in. - When a spare is arranged to replace the regular Lead, Second or Vice, that spare may not play the Skip position (ie. neither throw 4th stones nor call the game). If the regular skip is absent, either a spare or any regular member of the team may play the Skip position.

POSTPONEMENTS

Postponement / rescheduling of a game is permitted in unique situations but only if a team of 3 cannot be fielded. In other words, if 2 team member can play, they must do so with a minimum of 1 spare (because a minimum of 3 players are required to play). - A postponement is only acceptable if both teams agree and can find makeup ice acceptable to the "non-offending" team before the next scheduled playoff game. The team requesting postponement is ultimately liable for the default, regardless of any agreement to reschedule. In other words, if for any reason the game is not made up in time, the team that originally requested the postponement defaults and the "non-offending" team receives the win.

OTHER EXCEPTIONS TO THE PLAYOFF RULES

Any exceptions to these rules are only permissible upon prior written (ie. email) approval of the league drawmaster.

Good Curling Everyone!

AMENDMENTS

These rules may be amended at any time by the Section President.

Thursday Day Ladies Draw Off

Team Draw Off Instruction & Score Sheet

Every team must complete the team draw off. All four players must throw one draw shot to the button with sweeping allowed.

The order of players * is not important but the four shots must be consecutive. Each player’s rock is measured and removed before the next team member throws her rock. 

* In the case of a 3-man team, the first player to deliver a stone for her team must also throw the final stone.  In the case of a 5-man team, choose four players to throw.

The team draw off is to be completed on Leaside ice after regular games or during team practice sessions. Teams can decide when they complete the draw off based on their own time availability as long as their scores are submitted by December 11th, the last day of Draw 1.

Measurements (rounded to .5 of an inch) are taken from the centre of the tee/button to the inside edge of the stone on the striking band. Measuring tapes will be available to teams. Teams are responsible for their own measuring.

Stones that cover the button centre (& cannot be measured) will be assigned a distance of zero (0). Stones that do not reach or go past the rings will be counted as 6 feet 1 inch.

The four player’s measured total will represent the Team Draw Off score which will be used to determine team rankings if, as and when tie situations arise after each draw.
