Curling Technicalities 101


Catching Rocks

It is the responsibility of the team delivering the stone (sweepers and skip) to catch all rocks hit out of play.  It is courteous for all players on the sheet to watch their game and help catch rocks.


Burnt rocks 

If a rock is touched by accident it is a burnt rock.  When this occurs before the hog line, the stone if removed from play immediately. 

If a rocks is touched after the hog line, all stones are allowed to come to rest.  The non-offending team has three options: 1) removed the burnt rock and replace the stones; 2) leave the stones where they ended up; or 3) place the stones where they think they would have come to rest.


Sweeping behind the tee line

Only one player from each team may sweep a stone at any one time behind the tee line.  An opposition stone cannot be swept until the front edge of the stone reaches the tee line. 


Last Curling Draw this year is Dec 21, 2018.  Then the ice will be closed for maintenance until Jan 2, 2019.
