Wednesday Evening Ladder League

Quilty and Robertson rinks win Wed. Evening Ladder League Round One

Round One of the Wednesday Evening Ladder League, with sponsors Charlottetown Bottle and Metal, and Sam’s Restaurant, wrapped up on Dec. 30.

Team Quilty

In the “A” Pool, the team of Aleya Quilty, Tyler MacKenzie, Eddy Bushev, and Alyssa Holliday went undefeated with a 7-0 win-loss record to win the round, followed by the Paul Neima rink at 6-1, and the Mark MacDonald foursome at 5-2. The young Brayden Snow team, who had a close game against Team Quilty on the final night, had four wins, and will also remain in the “A” pool for the second round, as will the Josh McInnis-skipped “Legion of Broom” team, who were tied with the Chris MacDougall squad, both with 2 victories. Because President MacDougall and his rink lost their game against the “Legion”, they will be descending the ladder to the B Pool, along with the Dave Younker and Greg Groves teams, both with one win. Younker picked up his win on the final night, 11-6 over Groves. 

Team Robertson

The “B” pool was won by the team of Greg Robertson, Kim Pippy, Jeff Arsenault, and Laura Arsenault, finishing with an impressive 6-1 win-loss record. They’ll be climbing the ladder to the “A” pool for the next round, along with the Clara Jack rink, who went 5-2, and the Joe Callaghan team, who had 4 wins and 3 losses.

The Hank Kamphuis team also went 4-3, but lost to Team Callaghan in their round robin encounter, and will remain in the “B” Pool. Also staying in “B” are the Firefighters, who will be a force to be reckoned with next round after picking up some new players and ending up with a total of three wins. Also staying put are the Kelly Watts team, who also had three victories, along with the Rob Gallant and Peter Joostema rinks who both had two.

Wednesday Ladder League Revised Update

As has been announced, there is no team curling permitted on PEI until December 21st due to the PEI government’s “Circuit Breaker” directive. This means that the Wednesday Evening Ladder League will not be playing on December 9 and 16, but will be resuming on December 23. As well, we are now being given an extra night, Dec. 30.

Assuming no further “Circuit Breaker” restrictions, we will now be running Week 6 of Draw One on December 23 and Week 7 of Draw One on December 30, and will resume with Round 2 on January 6th. That will give us 13 weeks to run rounds 2 and 3, meaning that one of the remaining rounds will be short one week.

Here is the remainder of  Round One:

Thank you for your patience in these unique times!

 – Derek MacEwen, Ladder League drawmaster.

It was an exciting Qualifier Night, as curlers got used to the new rule where either skips or the active sweeper can now sweep behind the tee-line when their team is delivering, and there were some thrilling games, too!

Mark MacDonald’s rink loaded up the scoreboard and finished their game early, while Dave Younker and his team made a big comeback, following a four-ender with a triple. The battle between the Firefighters and the U18 champs was close, with the younger Team Snow coming out the winners. The Firefighters were down two regular members, going with one spare. 

Round One is brought to you by Charlottetown Bottle and Metal (A Pool), along with Sam’s Cornwall Restaurant (B Pool). 

Here are the 8 Teams for the A Pool for Round One (order selected at random)

  1. Younker
  2. Groves
  3. Neima
  4. MacDougall
  5. MacDonald
  6. McInnis
  7. Snow
  8. Quilty

Here are the 8 rinks for the B Pool for Round One (order selected at random)

  1. Joostema
  2. Kamphuis
  3. Watts
  4. Jack
  5. Callaghan
  6. Firefighters
  7. Gallant
  8. Robertson

The “B” Pool will have the early (6:30 pm) draw for Week One, as they played late the last evening of the 3rd, shortened round last season.

At the end of each round, the bottom three teams from the A pool and the top three teams from the B pool will change pools.

We will use the same Curling Canada-approved draw we have been using in recent years as it seems to have a good sheet allocation.

Update: Wednesday evening Ladder League
now has 16 teams!

We received TWO more entries to our Wednesday evening Ladder League, making a full draw of 16 teams. Due to the late entry, rather than redo the Qualifier Night draw, we will have them play off against each other, with the winner going to the A pool and the other team going to B.

We haven’t received full rosters, but one is the PEI Firefighters Championship rink, which normally includes Alan Brown, William Callbeck (entered), Cornwall area’s Mike MacRae (entered) and lead Winston Bryan, while the other is the Brayden Snow rink who are the reigning PEI Under 18 Boy’s champs, and last year included Snow (entered), Jack MacFadyen (entered), Liam Barbrick, and Davis Nicholson (entered).

After this week’s Qualifier Night, the A and B pools of eight teams each will alternate between 6:30 and 8:30 draw times, with the “B” Pool getting the 6:30 draw on week number One, as the “A” pool played at 6:30 in our last games, on March 11 (we missed the last 3 weeks) last season.

Here is the Qualifier Night Draw for October 28. Winning teams go to the “A” Pool for Round One, non-winners go to “B”.

Wednesday evening Ladder League Qualifier Night Random Draw

We are pleased to report that our Wednesday evening Ladder League Orientation Night went well, with a great turnout, and curlers learning the new guidelines and getting in a practice game!
We are also delighted to report that we now have an even fourteen teams (the same number as last year) signed up, with the rink of Aleya Quilty, Tyler MacKenzie, Eddy Bushev and Alyssa Holiday joining. 

Up next is our annual Qualifier Night where we select teams at random to play each other, with the winners going in the “A” pool and the non-winners going to the “B” for the first of three seven-week rounds. After Qualifier Night we will use the same draw format and sheet allocation as last season, which means that the two pools of seven teams will alternate between 6:30 and 8:30 draw times, with one team from each pool playing each other in a crossover game, which will always be at 6:30 pm.

We will leave an inside sheet (#2, as we did #3 last week) empty (unless someone books it) for the late draw on Qualifier Night to help as people get used to the new physical distancing guidelines and the removal of separator boards.

Here is the Qualifier Night Draw for October 28.

6:30 pm

Ice 1: Robertson vs Groves
Ice 2: Jack vs Quilty
Ice 3: MacDougall vs Callaghan
Ice 4: Younker vs Joostema

8:30 pm

Ice 1: Gallant vs Neima
Ice 3: Watts vs McInnis
Ice 4: MacDonald vs Kamphuis

We would like to remind all teams to enter the ice house via sheet 4, and exit via sheet 1.
We request that teams mark whether they won or lost their Qualifier Night game on the draw sheet that will be on the green table. Score is not required to be marked for Qualifier Night.

 

Draw for Oct. 21 Orientation Night/Practice Games. 

We now have 14 teams signed up for the Wednesday Evening Ladder League, the same number as last year, so there will be two pools of seven teams, with one team from each pool playing a crossover games with the corresponding team from the other pool each week. That game will always be at 6:30 pm.

Here is the draw for Orientation Night  (Oct. 21) so you will know whether to be there for 6:30 or 8:30. After your Orientation session, you will be scheduled to play a practice game (doesn’t count) of 4-6 ends (depending on how long the Orientation takes), with another team chosen by our random number generator.

We will then have our annual Qualifier night on the 28th where teams play another team (also will be chosen randomly) with the winners going into the “A Pool” and the non-winners going into the “B” for round one, which will start on November 4.

Here are the 14 team entries we have received. Some players didn’t specify their position, or there were two players in the same position, and four names have not been provided yet, so please let drawmaster Derek MacEwen know about additions or changes for your team by emailing derek.macewen@gmail.com. Note that players can play any position regardless of which they signed up for and can change from night to night.

League Description: 

The Wednesday evening Ladder League is a semi-competitive team entry league. Teams stay the same all season. Teams retaining at least 3 players from the previous season have priority to enter again this season, while other teams are on a space-available basis. Junior teams with all players age 13 and over, are welcome in this league. Teams are divided into an A and a B pool at the start of the season based on whether they win or lose against another team chosen at random on the first night, “Qualifier Night”. At the end of each of three rounds, the bottom three teams in the A pool and the top 3 teams in the B pool switch places, to add some variety for the middle-tier teams while also making the pools more competitive as the top and bottom teams will not play each other. The A and B pools will curl at separate times, alternating between the 6:30 and 8:30 draw times each week. If there is an odd number of teams in each pool there will be a “crossover” game each round, where a team in the A pool plays the team in the same position in the B. That game will always go at 6:30 pm. At least three players, one of whom is on the listed team (not a spare) is required to avoid a game default.  The winners of each pool in each round will receive prizes.

Rules (credit: some come from the Ottawa Curling Club’s Ladder League)

  • Open semi-competitive league. Any player can play any position, and you can change from game to game.
  • Following Qualifier Night where we only need to know who won, you will mark “W” for a win, “L” for a loss, or “LD” for a loss by default on the scoresheet, along with your team’s points scored, on the scoresheet on the draw board. In the case of a default, award point per end to the winning team. In the case of a tie, award an additional point for the draw to the button winner. If your score is not marked and you win, you will get one point more than the losing team. If you lose and didn’t mark, you will receive zero points.
  • To break ties at the end of the round between teams with the same record, the tied teams are ranked by applying the following rules in order until one tie is broken. If a one or more ties remain, the rules are applied to each tie starting from rule 1. The process continues until all ties are broken and all teams are ranked.
    1. The teams are ranked using their head-to-head record against the other teams in the tie. A Loss will beat a Loss by Default.
    2. The teams are then ranked using the point differential for their games in the round against the other teams in the tie.
    3. The teams are then ranked using the point differential for all the games in the round against all teams.
    4. The teams are then ranked using their initial ranking in the round.
  • Ties: Decided by skip’s rocks with sweeping permitted (by your team only – the other team cannot sweep your rock).
  • Avoiding defaults/using spares: At least one regular team member (and three players in total) must be present for the game to count, or else a default is posted.  Spares should not play a higher position than the player replaced.
  • Storms: Any games cancelled due to storms, etc. will usually not be played, unless it is the last week of the draw (drawmasters decision). All subsequent weeks will remain where they were, Any changes to this will be posted on CornwallCurling.com.
  • Teams may reschedule games to a different date and /or time by mutual consent. but ice time is hard to find!
  • The buzzer will be used to ensure the teams are off the ice within the 2-hour time period.  If the buzzer sounds, teams will complete the current end in play to finish the game. If tied, the standard draw to the button will then take place.
