Introduction 

The City Championships are operated under the auspices of the Calgary and Area Curling Club Managers Association and are intended to be both a competitive and social season-ending event.   

FORMAT and RULES 

This event will be governed by the CCA General Rules of play, except as are modified by the Club Managers Association at the time of competition. 

·        Each club is responsible for adherence to the spirit and intent of the competition rules to ensure fairness for all.  Teams should be actual club teams that have competed as such during the season.  If a club does not operate a league in a particular division or event, the manager may appoint eligible players from the membership to represent the Club in that event or division. 

·       All events/divisions are single knock out format 

·       All games are 8 ends with full extra end(s) in the event of a tie after 8 ends 

·       10 minutes before your 2 hour time slot the buzzer rings and you finish the end you are on – period.

·       Should any team member(s) from the club championship team (to a maximum of 2) be unable to compete at the City Championships due to extenuating circumstances, the team may name an eligible substitute/spare/replacement player for each unavailable team member subject to the approval of the Club Manager.  The name(s) of the substitute/spare/replacement player(s) must appear on the event/division registration form.  If more than two players are unavailable, the runner up team should represent the Club. 

·       NO PLAYER MAY BE REGISTERED ON MORE THAN ONE TEAM and may not play on one team in the Championships and spare on another team either in the same event or division or in a different division or event. 

·       Substitutes/Spares/Replacements will be permitted provided that the Substitute:

b)    Is a player from the same club as the registered player and are registered in the same league as the team requiring the spare
