A few notes regarding points and Divisions (Regular Season):
From play within each division, teams are awarded 3 points for a win, 1 for a loss and 0 for a forfeit loss. Winning a game by forfeit counts as a win (3 points). Tie matches will go to skips rocks to determine a winner (ie no ties).
In the event of a tie game, each team throws one rock, with full sweeping by the throwing team only. note: anyone from the throwing team may be elected to throw the rock. There will be no sweeping behind the tee line by the opposing team. The team without the hammer delivers their rock first. A Rock must make it past the hogline and remain in play to be considered a counting stone. The distance of the rock to the button shall be measured and locked in on the measurer or by other means if not within the house. note: in our club, the measuring is often performed by an unbiased 3rd party. The rock is then removed from play. The opposing team throws; their rock must be closer to the button than the first team to win the point and the match.
Tiebreakers for Week A and Week B Play:
If 2 or more teams in the A week, or in the B week end with the same point total the following method(s) will be used to break the tie.
- The first tiebreaker will be team results in head to head competition.
- The second tiebreaker will be results vs. the top team in that division, followed by the second place team, and followed by the third place team and so on.
- The third tie breaker would be measured distance on skips rocks. To ensure that the A and B week rankings can be determined, all teams will throw skips rocks following their match on Week 9. We will use a tape measure from button to rock and record the distance.
After a three or four way tie is broken, the ranking of any teams that are still tied are determined by starting over with method 1 above.
This tiebreaker method is used to set the matches for the A Week Playdowns (Feb 22nd) and the B Week Playdowns (March 1st).
The winners of playdowns face each other in the league finals on March 8th.
