Team Seedings:

At the start of each new season, the team ladder location will be determined using the following guidelines:

2) Number of returning OCC players from the prior year, then
3) The date that the application to enter a new team has been submitted to either the office or the OCC Open Convener. Applications are not carried over from one year to the next.


Spares must be OCC Members. A team that uses an ineligible spare will be considered to have forfeited the game 8-0. Teams MUST write the name of the spare on the score card. Spares may skip (Call the game) but must throw front end. Maximum of 2 spares per team per game. At least 2 Team Roster Members must play in the Game.

If a team does not have enough players to play the game then the team is considered to have forfeited. If a score card has not been submitted, then BOTH teams are considered to have defaulted. The score card should be handed in at the end of each night but may be handed in the following week. If a team requests the game be rescheduled but a date cannot be agreed upon then the game is considered to be defaulted with a score of 8-0.

The score card should indicate the name of each team that have played along with the date, time and ice number. The final score should reflect completed ends, plus in the event that a team concedes before the 8th end, the winning team shall be awarded 1 point for each unfinished end.
