  • Ties after round robin will be solved using head to head record, then cumulative draw to the button
  • Top 3 teams from each pool make the playoffs


  • Throughout the round robin hammer will be determined by last stone draw at the end of each team’s pre-game practice.
  • Measure the distance the last stone draw is from the button. RECORD THE RESULT. The Closest team to the button receives hammer for the first end. Covering the pin is a 0, and missing the house is 183 cm
  • In the event a team completely covers the pin or does not stop in the house, they will NOT rethrow. The second team will practice and throw their last stone draw.
  • If there is a tie on the last stone draws, a coin flip will be used to determine hammer in the first end.
  • A new player IS NOT needed for each last stone draw
  • In the playoffs, choice of hammer or rock color will be given to the higher ranked team

Pre-Game Practice:

  • First and second practice will be determined by coin flip. The winning team has choice of second practice or rock color.
  • Each team practice will be completed within 8 minutes
