Going Forward

The Tour has acquired a Laser Measuring Device (LRM) in an attempt to consolidate and streamline the Tie-breaker process associated with pool based events.

The MSCT recognizes that all events are unique, however the proposed process does allow for several scenarios.

The MSCT will make available the LRM device and supporting forms to all interested Tour events.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The MSCT has put forward the following rule amendment to the MSCA:

"Any objects placed between the hog lines during 2 Person Stick play (e.g., extra rocks, placards, … ) shall be considered an extension of the side boards. A moving stone that contacts any of these objects will be deemed out of play at the point of contact."

Barring any rule changes by the MSCA/CSCA this will be the approach suggested for the 2024-25 MSCT season.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Goals of the MSCT include:

a) Promoting 2 Person Stick Curling throughout the Province,

b) Promoting participation in the many 2 Person Stick Bonspiels throughout the Province,

c) Bringing the 2 Person Stick Curling Community together regularly throughout the season,

d) Involving the Manitoba Stick Curling Association (MSCA) at the curling club level and

e) Developing additional Women's events and Women's teams around the Province.
