Welcome everyone to the 2014-15 Season of the Open League! We’re nearly ready to kick off the games but, before we do, there are a number of things that you should know!
Game Result Submissions:
Using the above information, I ask that everyone to please submit their scores to me after each game via email or text message. When submitting, please include your score, the opponents score and if the game was completed on time.
Teams / Schedules:
We are currently sitting at 23 teams this year which means there will be a placeholder BYE team added to the league. Should you be scheduled against this team, you will not have a game that week. No team will be given more than two BYE’s the entire season.
I absolutely hate BYE’s, so if you know of any players or teams who are interested in playing who may have not found a team this season, please have them contact me and I’ll be happy to create a spot for them.
Just a quick note on scheduling this season: I’ve been asked by the ice maker to only schedule a single game for Wednesday Nights at 9pm. I HIGHLY encourage this team to try and reschedule their game for Tuesday Night at 6:45pm so that you’re not stuck out there all alone!
We we see how this system works for this session and then re-evaluate for the second session.
After successful test runs during the previous season, we will permanently sticking with the following rules
Time Clocks – The rule states that if the final skip rock of the 7th end is in motion (the skip leaving the hack) before the time runs out, you will be able to start and play the 8th end.
Playoffs – TWO registered team members (reduced from three) must be present for playoff games. However, only ONE spare may play in a playoff game and must play front end (if three registered team members are present) or lead (if two registered team members are present).
A big thank you to Home Renovations by Barbara (Barb Boag) for becoming the title sponsor of the league! I would also like to thank Clean Sheet Curling (Norm Gervais and Sheilagh Lamb) for continuing to provide web hosting for our league.
We are always looking for additional sponsors to help support and grow the league. If you or your company would like to become a sponsor, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
