The Team Entry competitive league curls weekly, rotating between Mondays at 7:00 pm and Thursdays at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm.  The teams are set at the start of the year and play 3 draws of 7 games each. The drawmaster works very hard to to ensure that teams play an equivalent number of games at the various draw times (not entirely possible with 7 games per draw). This season for the first time, teams will be surveyed to determine their availability to play at 5:00pm. Depending on the results of the survey, teams who are willing/able to play at 5:00 pm will be scheduled to play some of their games at 5:00 pm instead of 9:00 pm. The necessity for Monday night games will determined by the number of teams registered. 

There is capacity for a total of 64 teams split with 8 teams per division. At the beginning of the year, teams are ranked and assigned to divisions. They then play play three draws of seven games, with the top 2 teams moving up and the bottom 2 moving down between divisions based on their win-loss record. Teams with the best record in the final draw are recognized as Division champions. The season finishes with a Closing Bonspiel played over the final 2 weeks of the season.

You may enter an entire team of four, or sign up to be assigned to a team. New members are always welcome.

2024/5 Mixed: Evening Ladder (Fri/Sun)
League: Mixed Ladder
Participants: All levels of curlers.
– sign up as a team or as an individual

We have a very large Mixed section. At the beginning of the year teams are ranked and then play in a points ladder system throughout. There are 3 draws of 7 games for each team with 8 teams per division (max 80 teams, Divisions A-J). Three bonspiels and bi-monthly Friday ‘fun nights’ add to the social side of curling. Mixed curling is scheduled on either Friday evening or Sunday afternoon.

After each draw, teams are re-seeded according to their win, loss, tie record, with the top 2 teams moving up a division and the bottom 2 moving down a division. Then play continues under the new alignment. A similar realignment takes place after the 2nd draw. Then teams play the final draw for divisional bragging rights. Teams with the best results in the final draw are recognized at the awards night during the Mixed Closing bonspiel that runs all week long during the final week (or thereabouts) of the season.

Mixed curling is a very social activity. Many of our members develop lasting friendships with teammates and opposing players alike. You may find many of our teams enjoying dinner together in the dining room after their Sunday games.

We balance the schedule so that teams will rotate play between Friday (7:00pm and 9:00pm) and Sunday (3:15pm, 5:15pm).

Entries are by team, but singles and couples are encouraged to join as there are always teams or other couples looking for someone to play with. The drawmaster will put interested single players or couples in touch with one another to form additional teams.
