Welcome everyone to the 2015-16 Season of the Open League! A lot of things have changed over the summer, so please read everything below in full.
BORING ADMINISTRATIVE STUFF:
League Website: www.cleansheetcurling.com/dundas
I send very few mass emails; The majority of the information will be posted directly to the website so make sure to check weekly.
Please check the team page on the website to ensure that all spelling is correct. Some of the writing on the signup sheet is very tough to read!
EXCITING LEAGUE STUFF:
Teams / Schedules:
We have 24 teams signed up this year which means no BYE’s! We do, however, have a couple 3 man teams so if you are aware of anyone who still wants to play but didn’t get asked to be on a team now is your time to shine. Please let me know and I will put you in touch with the teams.
Schedules will be posted sometime this weekend and can be found on the website. Please check back often prior to the start of the season as games have a tendency to be shifted around prior to October 14th.
We do have a number of brand new and re-tooled teams this year, so I just wanted to remind everyone that all non-returning teams, regardless of skill level, get seeded into C Flyte initially. And while I’m thinking about it, a reminder that C1 Flyte and C2 Flyte are exactly the same; Think of them as C-East and C-West if that helps!
Only one slight rule change this year: Timeclocks, club-wide, will be adjusted to have 1hr 55min on the clock rather than the previous 1hr 50min. This should allow for more draw centric play without having to worry about running out of time. All other rules regarding timeclocks will remain the same.
As always, I recommend everyone take a quick look at the rules prior to the start of the season!
If you’ve clicked any of the links so far, you’ll notice that we have a revamped website for this season. The website is considered a “responsive” website, meaning that it alters it’s shape and size depending on the device you’re accessing it from. This means no more zooming and awkward side-to-side scrolling required on cell phones and tablets!
Just a note that the webhost has been having some issues with the server, so accessing the site may occasionally take a longer-than-normal amount of time.
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.
That should cover everything! Remember to check the website for all future information! And, as always, if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
