Dear fellow curler,as we discussed at the Province AGM, 2018 the executive have decided to change rule 4 of division 3-5 rules as below.
Any team using a player nominated to a Division 1 or Division 2 team may do so to a maximum of one player per game, but that player shall not skip or play above position two, AND THE TEAM WILL INCUR A PENALTY OF THREE SHOTS, to be shown on the twelfth end before the game starts. Any team using a player nominated to a team lower than Division 2 may do so to a maximum of two players per game but these players shall not skip or play above position two and the team will not incur a penalty.
Remove the words “and the team will incur a penalty of three shots”
For division 1 and 2 rule 3d states:
“A nominated player can only substitute in a higher division or in division 3 or lower divisions under rule 4.”
A nominated player can substitute in any division, but may not skip nor play above second position .
In addition, PLEASE NOTE. ALL PROVINCE MATCHES WILL NOW BE PLAYED UNDER THE NEW 5 STONE FREE GUARD ZONE RULE.
I hope this won’t mean a total change of tactics for all our Province teams.
