The Draw Master reserves the right to terminate a match that exceeds the allotted 2 hours time, if continuation of play negatively impacts the schedule of the Curling facility. This bonspiel shall be governed by the current OCA rules as posted.
- All games are eight ends in length.
- Free guard rule (four rock rule) shall be in effect.
- Tied games will be decided by each team throwing only one rock to the button, with sweeping allowed by throwing team. No sweeping permitted by the other team. If no rock settles in the house then the process is repeated in the same order as before. In the event of a tie in the A event semi-final game and all final games, a full end will be played toward the glass.
- Curlers may use the “Stick” for delivery of the stone.
- Games are scheduled to last only two hours. Prompt starting is important. When slow play is identified, (more than one end behind others) the draw master may rule to limit the number of ends played.
- Teams unable to field 3 players at scheduled start time will be penalised one point and one end for each 15 minutes delay. The game will be forfeited after 31 minutes of scheduled start by the draw master.
WILD CARD EVENT: F event.
After the Saturday morning “F” Event games, the two top teams will advance to the “F” Finals based on points. Only 6 ends are counted for points – the 7th and 8th ends will be for win/loss only. At the conclusion of their morning games, each WINNING team will throw a rock to the button and the distance from the pin measured and recorded by the Draw Master. This will be used only if there is a tie in determining who the two top teams are based on points.
- 10 points for a win.
- 5 points for a tie.
- 1 point for each end won
- 1/2 point for a blank
- 1/4 point for each score with no maximum
