This year we will curl the 5-rock rule. Any opponents rock in the free guard zone may not be removed until after the 5th rock of the end has been delivered. The free guard zone is between the Hog Line and the rings of the house.
THE NEW TIME RULE
- All games should start on time, handshakes and coin toss should occur prior to the start time.
- At 1 hour 40 minutes after the game start time, (ie 8:40pm on early evening draws, and 10:55 pm late draws) finish the end being played then play one more, to a maximum of 8 ends.
- Once the final rock of the end has crossed the delivery hogline, the end is over and the next end has begun.
- If starting a late game early, the team skips will determine the time of 1 hour 40 minutes from start time, and adhere to the rule.
