The tournament will run on Sunday evening 5 June and Monday morning 6 June of Queen's Birthday Weekend.
All players are requested to assist with ice setup from 4:20pm on Sunday, and the first round will start as soon as the ice is ready.
Teams are 2 males and 2 females, playing alternately (i.e. M-F-M-F or F-M-F-M). You may change from one configuration to the other and/or change playing order between games.
If a team is forced to continue playing with only three players they must continue to play alternately (M-F-M or F-M-F).
The Skip and Vice-Skip can be anyone in the team, but they must be from opposite genders. Refer to WCF Rules of Curling October 2014
NZCA has confirmed that WCF's current brooms regulations will apply.
Teams are in two pools of three and three 6-end pool rounds will be played on Sunday evening.
Teams in Pool A will play the three teams in Pool B and vice versa.
There will be no extra end to break a draw. Teams will score 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss
Teams will toss a coin for hammer and rock colour.
As time is restricted, pre-game practice is limited to players throwing one rock up and then back to the home end.
- Draw Shot
All players in each team will throw one draw shot during the round robin. After Rounds 1 and 2, one player from each team will throw one stone each. After the 3rd Round, if DSD is likely to be required then the remaining 2 players in each team will throw one stone each.
These will be measured and recorded, and the worst result of each team's total stones will be discarded before calculating the team's average draw shot distance.
The average DSD will be used only to rank teams in each pool with the same total points.
Two playoff rounds will be played on Monday morning.
The top two teams in each pool will play in 8-end championship semi-finals against each other (A1 v A2, B1 v B2) with the higher-ranked team having hammer in the first end and the lower-ranked choice of stone colour.
The third-ranked team in each pool will pay a 6-end 5th/6th playoff (A3 v B3) in the finals round.
The championship final will be 8 ends, all other final round games 6 ends.
If one team in each final/playoff had a higher pool ranking they will have hammer in the first end and the other team choice of stone colour, otherwise teams will toss a coin for hammer and stone colour.
All playoff games will have an extra end if required to break a draw.
- Meals and Breaks
We hope to have at least a 10-15 minute break between games on Sunday evening, and to have light snacks available, but players should ensure they have something for themselves.
