2 ON 2 OPEN LEAGUE
There are two people on a team and it can be any combination of Club Members: 2 men, 2 ladies, a mixed team, senior and junior – an ‘open’ league. A game is 6 ends and each team uses 6 rocks. A game takes approximately 50 minutes. There is very little sweeping and not very much walking because players do not change ends and you are only allowed to sweep your partner’s rock from the hog line in. There are two full Draws on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. League play involves a round-robin and playoffs. Rules are posted downstairs in the Club. This game is rapidly escalating in popularity across Canada. It is a lot of fun and works with any skill level.
Convenor: Bob Hetherington
THURSDAY NIGHT OPEN LEAGUE
This league will have two draws of 6-end games on Thursday evening. It is a competitive team entry and will be an all-inclusive ‘open’ league that will include Men’s, Ladies and Mixed teams from both within the Club as well as from the community. This initiative is intended to encourage the younger demographic as well as others in the community to get involved in the sport of curling with a focus on fun and to eventually join the Club as a full member. Teams may have more that four curlers and the fee is $400.00 per team for the entire season. (House league teams with skill levels from beginner to experienced.)

NOTE: I regret to report the Bobcaygeon Curling Club will not be participating in the Kawartha Leaque in the 2017-18 curling season. Because of our difficulty in having sufficient players to field three teams for each away game the group voted to exclude Bobcaygeon from the Kawartha Leaque. We can participate in the Kawartha Leaque bonspiels. That would be ten bonspiels including our own with two teams at most of the spiels for a total of 17 slots. We will canvass the players who indicated an interest in the KL and Skip’s Choice teams to determine if we can cover the bonspiels.
Hopefully curlers who wish to curl at other centres may be able to get some games in the Northern Leaque or the Caygeon Fenelon program.
