Saskatchewan Women’s Curling Tour Bonspiel Requirements

  1. All events will be based on a pool format, followed by a playoff system to determine the champion.
  2. Events will run from Friday afternoon to Sunday.
  3. Teams will be accepted into the event on a first-come, first-serve, paid basis. The deposit is the entry fee of $515/team. Registrations must be submitted through Curling I/O.
  4. Minimum prize purse must equal the number of participating teams multiplied by $300 to meet CTRS requirements. Recommended that the 5th and 6th place payout be a minimum of $700.
  5. Bonspiel Committee/Event Coordinator will be responsible for displaying any applicable sponsors of the SWCT.
  6. Bonspiel Committee/Event Coordinator will be responsible for submitting final event results for CTRS point purposes
  7. Bonspiel Committee/Event Coordinator will be responsible for posting end by end results on Curling I/O.
  8. It is up to the host club if they wish to sweep the ice and/or pebble prior to the start of the game.

Saskatchewan Women’s Curling Tour Rules

  1. All teams will be required to comply with Curling Canada’s Brushing Moratorium at SWCT events. Failure to do so will result in no points (SWCT or CTRS) being awarded to the offending team.
  2. Pre-Game Practice and Determination of hammer (last rock):
    • 20 minutes prior to the start of each game, the two competing teams will flip a coin. The winner of the coin toss will select either rock color or practice (first or second). First practice will take place 15 minutes prior to game time.  Any player may throw the LSD and may throw all LSD’s if desired.
    • During the practice, each player will be able to throw one rock up and one rock back. Once each player of the first practice has thrown one rock up and one rock back, they will take one rock back and use that rock to draw to the button. The third will use a tape measure to determine the distance of the rock from the button and both opposing thirds must agree on the positioning prior to moving the rock.
    • Immediately following the first practice, the team throwing second practice will throw one rock up and one rock back. The second practice team will then take one rock to the other end to throw their draw to the button. Again both thirds must be present and agree on which rock was closer. The third will use a tape measure to determine the distance of the rock from the button and both opposing thirds must agree on the positioning prior to moving the rock.
    • Should a team cover the pin when drawing for hammer on their first throw, another player on that team will re-throw once confirmation is received from the opposing team. If both teams cover the pin twice, a coin toss will be used to determine last rock.
  3. For playoffs, the team that finished the round-robin with the best W-L record will have choice of rock color or hammer. The team who has the hammer will have the first practice. In the event that the two teams finished the round-robin with the same record, they will perform the coin toss to determine practice and rock color, and perform the LSD for hammer, just as was done in the round-robin play.
