Offering the maximum flexibility, the Club accepts both fixed and drawn teams. A fixed team is one where two, three or four curlers decide, before the season starts, to curl together. Fixed teams are accepted in the Men’s League, the Mixed Leagues, the Wednesday Evening Ladies’ League and the Wednesday Morning Senior Men’s League. Simply indicate the Skip of your team on your application form. If you do not have a full team, the League Chairperson will assist you in finding the remaining player(s) required. Those curlers who join the Club as individuals will be placed with three other curlers on a drawn team or partially filled fixed team.
