Spares must be Full Club Members or Associate League Members.
For the games on Thursday, April 16th, Friday, April 17th and Saturday, April 18th (Finals Day), all spares must be members of the Men’s League
Spares cannot be drawn from teams actively competing in the same playoff flight
If your team is competing in the Main Event and hasn’t been eliminated, you may not spare in a Main Event game (sparing in the Open division is OK)
A similar restriction applies to teams competing in the Open division
- If one player is away, the spare must play lead or second
- If two players are away the following applies:
if lead and second are away, spares must play lead and second
if at least one back-end player is away, spares may play at any of lead, second or third
- If three spares are required, the game is defaulted
- A spare may call the game (skip), but must observe the restrictions noted above as to throwing position
Teams with 5 members may no longer swap players mid game during the playoffs. Start your game with 4, no substitutions.
If you have any questions, please ask the convenor, Rob Ainsley.
