We will play two 3-end to seed teams, then two more 3-end games for the playoffs. Each game will be 1 hour long. Do not start a new end if there less than 15 minutes left.

Ranking will use a points system as follows:

  • 2pts for winning a game
  • 1pt for a tie
  • 0 pts for a losing the game

As we are only playing 2 games for seeding the teams, we will inevitably need tiebreakers:

  • 1st tie-breaker: Total +/- from the final score of all three games will be used;
  • 2nd tie-breaker: The sum of the points your team scored in all three games will be used
