Rules pertaining to competitive play:

Uniforms and Cresting

Curlers in playdowns must adhere to the rules with regards to sponsors and cresting.

Last Stone Draw Rules (September 2018)

As stated in the 2018-19 Curl BC Yearbook pg 68 Rule 6 (d) (i) Last stone advantage will be per Curling Canada’s Rules for Officiated Play.

Last Stone Draw update (August 2018): After reviewing surveys from competitors at Curl BC events, the LSD format will be as follows for all regional and provincial events. One identified person will deliver the LSD as outlined by Curling Canada. If the LSD is measured at 0.0 or 199.6 cm a second person will deliver a LSD. Only if both teams tie with identical LSD totals after 2 stones have been delivered will the teams alternate until hammer is determined. Please note that this may or may not be the same process used at the national events, but will be consistent across all events in BC.

Curling Canada/WCF ruling on brush head technology

WCF policies/rules for brush heads and brushing (September 2018)

Curl BC will be adhering to international brush head technology and sweeping regulations for playdowns in BC leading to national events. The regulations were approved at the World Curling Federation Annual General Assembly in September 2016. Curling Canada has created an FAQ page to answer questions about the new rules. Visit https://www.curling.ca/sweeping-moratorium-faqs/ to read more.

Additional note: A delivery device can be used to clean the path from the house to the hack in a north south direction and east to west after cleaning your rock. Whatever delivery device you are using during your delivery can be used to clean up the area of the thrower (foot prints, knee prints etc.) as long as it’s not done in a prolonged, hard sweeping motion. Delivery devices come in many forms, i.e. hair brushes, stabilizers, hammer brooms etc.
