2016 Chilliwack Chilli Spiel Rule Sheet


Welcome to the 2016 Annual Chilliwack Chilli Spiel. Please make note of the following Bonspiel rules.


1.     C.C.A. rules will apply unless otherwise stated.

2.     Length: All games will be 8 ends or until the bell – whichever comes first. The bell will ring 1 hour and 40 minutes after the official start time and teams will finish the end being played plus 1 additional end. The bell will ring 2 hours after the official start for semi-final and final games.

3.     Tie games after the completion of 8 ends: Tie games will be decided by playing an additional end(s) until a winner is determined. Please, for the viewing audience, push the rocks to the far end and play back towards the windows.

4.     Teams and substitutions:

a)     One substitution may be made at any time for injury, illness, or other special circumstances. Additional substitutions may be made only with approval of the Bonspiel Committee.

b)    A substitute shall not have curled at any time in the bonspiel for another team unless taken from the pool of spares provided by the Bonspiel Committee. Penalty: forfeiture of game(s) played using the illegal substitute.

c)     The substitute must curl in the same position or lower as the curler being replaced. Penalty: forfeiture of game(s) played using the illegal substitute.

d)    A team may start a game with only 3 players providing the 4th player is named,

5.     Game delay/postponement: A team that does not begin play at the designated time will be penalized as follows:

a)     For the first full ten minutes that the offending team is late, the non-offending team will be awarded one point and one end. Upon arrival, the offending team must throw first.

b)    For each of the following full 5 minutes that the offending team is late, the non-offending team will be awarded one point and one end. Upon arrival, the offending team must throw first.

c)     After 30 minutes has elapsed, the non-offending team will be declared the winner.

d)    Skips are asked to make their decisions in a timely manner and to keep the game moving. Slow play is frustrating to everyone!

6.     Score Cards: Thirds from each team are required to ensure that the scorecard is fully completed and placed in the Score Card Envelope on the wall beside the draw sheets.
