Eight teams, from three PEI curling facilities, including six with at least one Cornwall member, are competing in the provincial championship for the new Olympic sport of Mixed Doubles curling, for 2-person teams of one male and one female, taking place at the Charlottetown Curling Complex from Feb. 9-11. The winning team advances to the 2018 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship from March 29 to April 1 in Leduc Alberta.
The teams will play modified triple knockout draws, with the winner of each section dropping down to compete in subsequent sections. If a team wins all three sections, they will be champion without a playoff. Otherwise, the section winners advance to a two-game championship round on Sunday afternoon.
Modified Triple Knockout Format.
|Date||Time||Draw||Ice 1||Ice 2||Ice 3||Ice 4||Ice 5|
Scenarios for P1/P2:
1. One team wins all three qualifiers: Championship Round is not required.
2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both X and Z (and win the event if they win either game), the other winner plays in Y (and has to win both games).
3. Three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in Z and the other winners play off in X and Y. If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to Z and the other two teams play off in X and Y.
*Qualifying games are in yellow on the schedule
