Tuesday Competitive League 2018-19,  Looks like 9 teams this year so:

1. Season will be almost a double round robin but will be 15 games as we lose 2 weeks at Christmas and New Years, with one week randomly eliminated, then the top 4 teams advance to Club championship Page Playoff, the next 4 teams play the B Page Playoff, and then teams play each other as they advance or drop out of Page Playoffs. No playoff monies.

2. Round robin wins are 2 points, ties are 1 point, loss is 0. Any team defaulting gets 0 points and the other team that was prepared to play gets 2 points. No makeup games this year as we have no extra weeks. Lost games due to weather means those games will not be played and season will be out of less than 16 games. With a lost week then the bye team which would not lose a game will have their last game of the double round robin not count for any points but will still play it as it will count for the other team. This way everyone counts the same number of games. Page Playoff games lost to weather will be made up on a different day as arranged between the teams. Page Playoff games if tied play full extra ends until tie is broken.

3. Tiebreakers for advancing to the Page Playoff - will first be double round robin head to head, next will be head to head against all the other teams (plus any tied) for the same Page Playoff, then if still tied one rock shootout with sweeping. If both teams cover the pin or miss the rings then second throw by anyone on team with sweeping. If same thing happens then coin flip.

4. Be on ice by 7:05 or lose first end 1-0 and other team retains hammer. Repeats every 10 minutes. In round robin coin flip for last rock or choice of colour. In round robin no end to start after 9:00 pm for 7 pm games and no end to start 2 hours after start of 9 pm game.

5. 3 players minimum to play. For round robin you can have up to two spares but one must be a Listowel Curling Club member and any non member must play lead. For Page Playoffs you can have only 1 spare and they must play lead. In Page Playoff team with best standing to start Page Playoffs gets first choice of either last rock or colour.

6. This year is again a 5 rock free guard zone.

Good curling.
