The timing for all games will be 1 hour 50 minutes when a bell will be sounded. You will finish the end being played. If the previous end has been completed, the score agreed and the first stone of the next end is placed in position to be delivered you will play that end as the final end.  There are no time clocks being used but you are expected to play quickly and without undue delay.

Win = 2 points

Tie = 1 point (no extra ends)

Loss = 0 points

 Teams tied after the completion of the round robin and semi-finals will have their position in the standings decided as follows:

1st - By head to head game results.  If three teams are tied, and if one team

        defeated both of the other two, they would be first

2nd - Number of ends scored. A blank end counts as half an end for each team

3rd - Total points scored

4th – Coin flip

 Teams ranked 13th and 14th after the round robin do not qualify for the Final ranking games.
