Wednesday Evening Ladder League

 

 

Mark MacDonald, Amber Robb/Terry MacCormac rinks win Wed. Ladder League final round

The Wednesday Evening Ladder League wrapped up for the season on April 6, with, among other games, a very exciting  Round Two A Pool final between the Mark MacDonald and Tyler MacKenzie foursomes. MacKenzie, who had won Round One, had four wins, while MacDonald had four, going into the final night. It was a very close game, but MacDonald ended up winning, aided by a three-point end.  This gave MacDonald the A Pool win, as he beat MacKenzie by the head-to-head tie-breaking rule. Paul Neima and his rink also had five wins but lost to both teams.

A Pool winners (L-R): Mark MacDonald, Nelson Dougay, Geoff Boyle, Jonathan MacDonald

Team MacDonald was presented with gift certificates courtesy of sponsor PEI Energy Systems.

The winners of the “B” Pool were decided the previous week, with two teams, skipped by Rob Gallant and by Amber Robb/Terry MacCornac who rotate skipping duties each week, both undefeated at 5-0. The Robb/MacCormac team won the game, giving them the B Pool win without the final night coming into play, as no other team had more than four wins.

Playing with the winning Robb/MacCormac team were second Dawn MacIsaac and lead Colin MacIsaac. Photo is not available,  The “B” Pool was sponsored by Belvedere Golf Club.

Because there are only two nights left in the schedule, not time enough for another 7-week round, and a number of curlers told us they are going to be away around the Easter weekend holiday, it was decided to end the season early. No nights were missed this year for weather or other events, with the exception of the Covid shutdown. See you next season!

Ice available next two Wednesday evenings for practices, scrimmage games

(Posted April 9)

All Club members are invited to book sheets of ice for “members’ practice” or scrimmage games on the next two Wednesday evenings (April 13 and 20). In the event that these bookings become popular, the Wednesday Evening Ladder League curlers (who normally use this time slot) would be provided priority booking. 

Ice times will be 6:30-7:30, 7:30-8:30, 8:30-9:30, and 9:30-10:30 pm. Members can book one-hour or two-hour sessions, and should advise the Club Attendant when booking whether they would like a one-hour session or a two-hour session. Booking is now open. Call the Club to book.

Members are welcome to bring guests. If it is their first time, they can ‘try’ curling for free on their first visit. Other non-members are asked to pay a drop-in fee.

Subject to ice availability, the club may also book rental bookings for this time.

We are pleased to announce that our Wednesday Evening curling will be starting back on Wednesday, February 9th, with a two-week “mini round” where the teams in each of our two eight-team pools (as selected at the end of Round One) have been divided into two four-team “Pods” (Pod One will have the odd-numbered teams, while Pod Two will have the even-numbered teams). Each Pod will play two games/weeks per team in the round. Based on a Chief Public Health Office announcement on February 8th, it looks like “regular” play can resume by our February 23rd date, so we (unless things change) won’t play the originally-planned 3rd “Pod” week, and will run our final “official” 7-week round from Feb. 23 through  April 6, with two nights left over on April 13 and 20 for storm dates or other purposes.

Pod Round

We will record results with the same scoresheet style we have been using, but teams will NOT move up or down the ladder following the Pod round. Unless things change from the CPHO, the regular ladder league round will follow the Pod round.

Tyler MacKenzie and Laura Arsenault rinks win Wed. Eve. Ladder League Round One

Round one of the Wednesday evening Ladder League came to an exciting conclusion this week.

Team Arsenault

Going into the final “B” Pool night, the Joe Callaghan team were in the lead with 5 wins, while their opponents, the Laura Arsenault rink, as well as the Josh McInnis-skipped “Legion of Broom” squad, had four. Arsenault beat Callaghan, giving them both 5 wins, while McInnis lost to the Joostema (Team HGWZ) rink. This means that the Arsenault rink win the round, and the gift certificates from sponsor Peake & McInnis, as they beat the other 5-win team.

Team Tyler MacKenzie

Up the ladder in the “A” pool, the Tyler MacKenzie and Mark MacDonald teams both had 5 wins, but MacKenzie won their round-robin game against MacDonald, giving them the prize from sponsor JR’s Pizza. 

Moving down the ladder from “A” to “B” for round two will be the Greg Groves and Hank Kamphuis teams with two wins, plus the Rob Gallant foursome, who were tied with the Paul Neima team with three wins, but lost to Neima in their round robin match. 

Climbing the ladder from “B” to “A” will be the Arsenault and Callaghan teams with five wins, plus the Josh McInnis team with four (Amber Robb also had 4 wins but lost to McInnis in their game).

Here are our Round Two Draw Sponsors:

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 (but have a lower priority). 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. At least three players, at least ONE of whom is on the listed team (not a spare) are required to avoid a game default.  The winners of each pool in each round will receive prizes.

Rules:

  • Open semi-competitive league. Any player can play any position, and you can change from game to game.
  • We will be using the following Curling Canada draw for Round Robin play. It has good sheet distribution, and we have been using it or several years with no complaints.
  • 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.
    Sample Scoresheet:
  • 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 behind the T line or anywhere else).
  • 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 (drawmaster’s 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.
