Ties When Splitting Teams Into Divisions

  • If two or more teams are tied for points on a division split boundary, then the tie is resolved based on points generated in games between the teams that are tied in the previous round.
  • If teams are still tied then the tie will be resolved by a draw to the button with sweepers.
  • If teams did not play each other in the previous round then the tie will be resolved by a draw to the button with sweepers.

Example: At the end of round 1, teams A, B and C are tied with 34 points for 6th position. Team A, and B each beat team C and they tied each other when they played. So teams A and B have 9 points in games against the other 2 teams and team C has 2 pts. Team C has the least points so it gets 8th spot and is put in the B division. Teams A and B with equal points draw to the button for the 6th position in the A division.

Games

  • Games are 8 ends long. No buzzer. Play fast to get the full 8 ends in.

  • In playoffs in case of a tie, play one extra end. If the game is still tied after an extra end, draw to the button with sweepers.

Forfeiting and Delayed Starting Times of Games

The league does have Ice times on the weekend teams can reschedule if both teams agree. We would like to avoid defaults if at all possible.

If one team needs to forfeit they must contact the other team as early as possible to let them know. Also contact the head of the league. If you know a week in advance of a default we can inform the city and save the rental cost for the sheet. 

If a team unexpectedly does not have at least three players at game time the general rules of curling rules for delayed starts of games and forfeits apply.

Game start time is 7:15PM unless otherwise agreed between the teams, league and city in advance.

Team Composition

Players in the "Port Moody Mens curling league", must be Men who are members of the Port Moody curling club.  

Teams may register either 4 or 5 team members.

You need at least 3 players including spares to play, at least 2 players must be registered members of the team.

Spares must throw lead or second stones if you have 4 players. If you are playing with 3 players, a spare must throw lead stones. A spare may call the game (ie act as skip) so long as they throw lead or second stones as required. When playing with 3 players, lead and second must throw 3 stones each, and skip must throw two.

The registered "fifth" player on a team is not a spare, they are a full member of the team. Any member of the team can play any position. 

Anyone with questions, concerns, or objections with any of these rules contact the league President.
