Utica Six Sheet Open

Friday-Sunday, December 7-9, 2018
Limited to 24 teams
Participants must be 21 or older

An open-format bonspiel with a 4-game guarantee and six final events. Teams may be composed of any mix of men or women, shooting in any order. To give this event a unique twist, games will be played with the "Fredericton Rule" used in the Everest Challenge: any stone completely covering the pin is scored as 2 points. So put on a different strategy hat, and have a fun weekend of curling at Utica!

Rules

This event will be run as a modified Schenkel/Swiss system: winners play winners, losers play losers. A team shootout will be done after the first game to determine tiebreaks for pairings each round. Four preliminary games will determine placement and pairings in the championship finals (six events). Games will be 8 ends, except (1) any stone completely covering the pin is scored as 2 points; (2) in the event of a tie after 8 ends, the winner will be determined by a draw-to-the-button.
