2023 LCCC Summer Spiel - Saturday, August 26th - 9:00 am-4:00 pm
Steed Arena, 400 Lola St, Helena, MT - https://goo.gl/maps/WLySYt8tobLT5wF76
Each team will play two seeding games which are each 6-ends (1.5 hours), with the first draw starting at 9:00 am and the second draw starting at 11:00 am. Teams and sheets for the first two draws were randomly selected, and after the second draw is over, we will rank teams 1-10 for the final draw at 1:30 pm. Ranking will be based on W-L record, then point differential, then points for, then points against. If there is still a tie between two teams after that, we will do a draw to the button to determine seeding. The final draw will be 8-ends (2 hours), and we should be all wrapped up for the day before 4:00 pm.
The Summer Spiel will follow the latest USA Curling rules, found here:
Each game will start with a coin flip. In the event of a tie breaker, there will be a draw to the button to determine the winner, each team gets one sweeper and cannot sweep opponent’s stones. We do not have a center line, so tick shots are ok during play. Unfortunately like previous years due to in-ice advertisements, we are not able to have a hog line on Sheet C, so you will have to use your judgement. When in doubt, let the Spirit of Curling be your guide.
No outside food or beverages are allowed in the arena, but both food and beverages are available for purchase throughout the day from the arena. We’ve built in a few breaks for folks to have lunch, enjoy some liquid refreshments, and socialize with all of their fun curling friends.
Most importantly have fun and good curling everyone!
