Hi all! Our new 2019-2020 season starts Monday, September 30th!! Early this year! Let's get at it! Yeah!
The Attorney General Curling League is a fun mixed league that curls at the Fort Rouge Curling Club on Mondays at 5:00 PM from mid-October through March! This site is a main source of information about our league for everyone!
Enjoy! And scroll down for announcements and other stuff!
Hi all! Our Christmas Festivities are coming up Monday, December 16th! This year we're going to have a Bingo Curl, with randomly picked teams! Sort of a mixer event. We'll play 4 or 5 ends, then head up for our Christmas Banquet immediately after! That will finish our curling for 2019! Then we resume on January 6th to continue Round 1!
Merry Christmas all, and a Happy New Year!
Bingo Curl Rules! OK here's how it goes. We curl each end, and after each, THEN we pick instructions on how to score the end from an envelope! It might be all rocks in front of the house, or all rocks touching the 8-foot ring, or whatever. If one team has 5 and the other has 3, the team with 5 scores 2 points (5 minus 3.) Then on to the next end. We DO NOT LOOK at the scoring til after the end is complete! Then we tally every team's score and whoever has the most points wins the honors!
New Team! Yes! We managed to recruit a new team! Please welcome the Degner team! They will start October 7th. And hopefully get a chance to schedule a game some time against the Roe team who got a bye last week.
No More Ties!! Yes! At our skips meeting Sept 30, we voted to eliminate ties, to improve the tie-breaking and Grand Aggregate determinations. So! If two teams are tied after their last end, each team throws one rock, and closest to the pin wins. Any regular team member can throw, no spares! And teams can sweep their own rocks, spares included. But no sweeping your opponent's "skip's" rock!
Looking for a spare? All skips have been sent a League Contact list for this season. Which has spares listed at the bottom! Also, check any teams that have more than 4 players... perhaps their extra players are looking for a game! Contact their skips and see! Can't hurt.
New Website Address. Yes we continue at our now not as new website address, agcurling.ca! Any comments (or problems) please let me know!
