Effective for the Oct 30, 2010 game and beyond
Starting October 30th, the Fall League will be in Playoffs. If you have not yet seen the format for the League, please do take a look at it here.
Due to the nature of playoffs and in the interest of fair-play, we are instituting Rules for Subs. The rules are as follows:
- Your team must have at least 2 original members every game.
- Subs cannot be members of another team also in the league.
Failure to follow these rules results in an automatic loss on the schedule.
You must have 3 curlers on a team to make a game. So if you are only 2 members and cannot find a non-league member for a sub, you will be forced to take an automatic loss. There at least 6 non-league curlers who have subbed previously, so it should not be too difficult to find a sub using the Forum.
In the case of an automatic loss, please be sure to still get league curler subs so that the game is still played. Your opponents are still looking to play, so form a team for the game however you can. Upon completion of the game, be sure to mark it as a loss regardless of the score.
If both teams fail to meet the required minimum of at least 2 original team members or cannot form a team of 3 curlers without the use of league curler subs, then both teams would be facing automatic losses. In the case of both teams facing automatic losses, the game should be played with invalid subs (other league curlers). The game is then played without the automatic loss, so the winner is determined based on the score as if the teams were both valid. In this case the rule-violations offset each other.
