The intent of the Spare Rule is to ensure that no curler’s play is being subsidized by the majority of curlers.
All appropriate fees must have been paid for the current season.
- All spares must be an active curler (in the current season), have paid their club dues and CurlBC/CC fees.
- A curler who is actively curling in one league may spare in any other league for FREE.
- Spares must have signed all applicable forms
- Check with your League Coordinator for any specific league rules regarding spares and positions
- Spares that are not paid curlers for this season:
- A spare fee of $10 per game is to be paid in the office.
- All applicable forms must be signed prior to stepping on the ice.
- After 3 games, the Curl BC/Curling Canada fee of $20 will need to be collected.
5th Player Fee (for EVENING LEAGUES ONLY that have 5 person teams)
If you are registering as your team’s 5th player, you must ensure you have paid (at this club or another) the Curl BC/Curling Canada Fee ($20) as well as the GEWC Facility Fee ($26.25).
Note – Your team must have 4 registered and paid curlers on the team.
Tips to Keep Up the Pace of Play
Note – due to Covid the below is different, please discuss with your league coordinator or club management for details.
- Arrive 15 minutes before game time to change, do your dynamic stretching and practise slides.
- Be on the ice five minutes before game time to shake hands, determine who has last rock.
- While the opposition’s rock is in motion, the next shooter should be cleaning his/her rocks and getting ready to shoot.
- After an end: Only the second and third should push the rocks to the boards, the lead grabs his/her numbered stone and gets ready to shoot.
- Do not sort the rocks — simply push them to the corner, and everyone grabs his/her own numbered rocks when it’s his/her time to shoot. Don’t waste time sorting rocks in sequential order.
- Only the skip and third should be discussing strategy. Every shot should not need to be discussed.
- The buzzer will go near the end of a game. That is the signal to finish the end you’re on and complete one more.
- Enjoy your game, visit with your friends, and keep in mind that you want to complete 8 ends which is not difficult if the pace is maintained. Enjoy!
