B) Business Girls Rules of Play

Teams will begin the season in either Group A or Group B based on their performance from the previous year (i.e. points).  New teams joining the club or any former teams that do not have three of their former team members returning will start off the season in B group.

There will be four rounds of curling consisting of five games each.  Teams will be rearranged in the groups according to total points after the completion of the first, second and third rounds with the fourth and final round the prize round.

All games will be 8 ends (or bell – 1 hour 45 minutes).  Late starts - one penalty point shall be assessed and one end shall be considered played for each five full minutes the team is late.  If after 30 minutes the game has not commenced, the non-offending team shall be declared the winner by default. 


                             Win        Loss        
        Group A         2             1        DW=Full points
        Group B         2             1         DL= No points     

There will be no extra ends.  After the final end a tie breaker will be decided by the rock thrown by those persons delivering ‘skips’ rocks (with sweepers).  This applies to regular season games only.

All games must be played as drawn.  The exceptions to this rule are teams competing in Ladies, Seniors, Mixed district play downs, berth bonspiels or the Dominion.  The team unable to make the game will be allowed to make up the game prior to the end of the round.  You must contact DLCC to book your own ice at a mutually agreeable time.  The team must notify “DLBGG Ice and Draw” after the game to correctly allocate points.  If you are unable to make up the game, both teams will receive 'winners' points.

Any teams requiring a spare are asked to phone the spare list provided first.  Then if still unable to retain a spare, you may call an outside curler.  If one spare is required they will play lead position – two spares will play lead and second.  This applies to both regular and playoff games.

Club Champion:  To be determined by a playoff between the teams with the most number of points for the entire season from each of Tuesday and Thursday nights.

Grand Aggregate:  Team with the most number of wins accumulated throughout the season.

A and B Group Winner and Runner Up:  Teams in A Group and B Group on both Tuesday and Thursday with the highest and second highest number of points in prize round.

A and B Group Trophies:  To be determined by a playoff between A Group winners of Tuesday and Thursday night, and a playoff between B Group winners of Tuesday and Thursday night.

If two or more teams are tied after the prize round the win/loss record between the two or more teams in the fourth and final round will determine the winner.

Playoff games: All teams must have a minimum of two (2) regular team members.  If spares are required, the spare list must be called first, followed by the regular member list from either Tuesday or Thursday.  Games will follow the rules used for the regular season.  Tie games will be resolved with an extra end.

All matters not dealt with in these rules shall be governed by the "Rules of the Game" as printed in the MCA annual yearbook.
