Sections that are bolded are new for 2016-17. An error in the 2016-17 Curl BC Yearbook has been corrected in the website version (link above). The error was the wrong age eligibility dates for our U18 and Junior events. The rules listed above supersede those in the yearbook.
Rules pertaining to competitive play:
Curlers in playdowns must adhere to the rules with regards to sponsors and cresting.
As stated in the Curl BC Yearbook pg 78 Rule 6 (d) (i) Last stone advantage will be per Curling Canada’s Rules for Officiated Play.

Additional note: A delivery device can be used to clean the path from the house to the hack in a north south direction and east to west after cleaning your rock. Whatever delivery device you are using during your delivery can be used to clean up the area of the thrower (foot prints, knee prints etc.) as long as it’s not done in a prolonged, hard sweeping motion. Delivery devices come in many forms, i.e. hair brushes, stabilizers, hammer brooms etc.
