Wed PM Ladder League

Wed. eve. Ladder League Round One pools won by Milligan and Neima teams, Round 2 draw set to go

The first round has wrapped up in the Wednesday evening Ladder League, with Team Milligan winning the “A” Pool and Team Neima taking the “B”, both with only one loss in their respective pool.

“A” Pool Winners – Team Milligan (L-R): Gary Milligan, Ellen Milligan, Wanetta Whitmore, Scott Ellis

“B” Pool Winners – Team Neima (L-R): Paul Neima, Alan Mason, Jeff Hannam, Randy Goodman

Based on their win-loss records, teams McInnis, Boswall, and Stewart will drop down from Pool A to Pool B, while teams Callin, Arsenault, and Bodner all had five wins in the “B” pool, with room for only two of them (along with Team Neima) to advance to the “B”. Looking at their records against each other, teams Callin and Arsenault will be advancing, as Callin beat both of the other teams, while Arsenault lost to Callin but beat Bodner and will also advance. Team Bodner lost to both and will remain in the “B” pool.

Here are the pools for Round Two. The B Pool gets the early draw the first week, as they had the late draw the last week of Round One. Team Arsenault has requested a bye on January 31, while Team Watts has asked for one on Feb. 28th. We will honour those requests.

Teams are reminded to check the draw times the first week, as, if they changed pools, they will be curling at the same time they did last week.

Here are the pools for Round One of the Wednesday Evening Ladder League, following Qualifier Night on Oct. 25 (please let us know if we have someone in the wrong pool!).

Notes:

We will give teams MacDonald and Beaton their byes in Week 9, as they had byes on Qualifier Night.

Team Milligan requested a bye on November 8, so we will give them and Team Griffin their byes in Week 2.

Wednesday evening Ladder League – Qualifier Night Draw for Oct. 25

Our Qualifier Night draw is now set. We have slotted two teams as follows:

We have awarded the Mark MacDonald rink, based on their past record, a bye to the “A” pool, while the Kolin Beaton team has agreed to start off the first round in the “B”. Both these teams will have Qualifier night off  (and we will make sure they do NOT have byes early in Round One). This leaves 16 teams to battle it out on Qualifier night, Oct. 25, with the winning teams going to Pool A for Round One, beginning the following Wednesday, and the other teams going to the B. We will make up the Round One draw after Qualifier night to ensure we accommodate the byes (and one other bye request we received) rather than slot the teams automatically.

We have chosen the draw for the Qualifier Night using the Random.org List Randomizer.
We have a long-standing request from Team Kamphuis to play the late draw on Qualifier night, so we have honoured this request.

Qualifier Night Draw for Oct. 25:

6:30 pm 

Ice 1: Hanzell vs Boswall

Ice 2: McInnis vs Callin

Ice 3: Griffin vs Milligan

Ice 4: Arsenault vs Stewart

8:30 pm:

Ice 1: T. MacKenzie vs Younker

Ice 2: Groves vs Bodner

Ice 3: Watts vs Neima

Ice 4: Kamphuis vs Whynot

Byes: MacDonald (going to Pool A), Beaton (going to Pool B).

Wed. Evening Ladder League rosters and other details. 

Here are the rosters we have been provided with for the Wednesday Evening Ladder League, which gets underway this week, with Qualifier Night taking place on October 25th, with winning teams going to the A Pool, and the other teams going to B for the first round, which starts on Nov. 1st.

Be sure to mark whether you won or lost on the draw sheet that will be posted. Score is not needed for Qualifier night.

Note that, following Qualifier Night, the A pool will have the 6:30 draw the first evening of the first round, as the B pool had it the last evening of the last round last year.

Teams

Please send any roster corrections to the Wed. eve. Drawmaster, Derek MacEwen, at derek.macewen.gmail.com, or the Manager at cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca

We are still looking for two players. If interested, contact either of the above email addresses, or the skips of the teams that have only three players (with TBD highlighted in yellow for the vacancies).

We have 18 teams this season, which means one team in each 9-team pool will have a bye each night. Here is the Curling Canada draw we will be using. Like the 8-team draw which we have been using, it appears to have excellent sheet distribution. We reserve the right to change the order of the weeks.

Here is the tentative schedule. With the additional teams, we will have time for only two full rounds, with three or four nights left over, and will play a partial round for the third round. Dates marked with “*” are planned to go ahead, but, depending on the draw for the championship that is scheduled that week, may possibly be delayed a few minutes or otherwise affected.

October 25:  Qualifier Night

November 1: Round 1, Week 1

November 8: Round 1, Week 2

Good curling!

Welcome to another season of the Wednesday Evening Ladder League, a semi-competitive team entry league. We have 18 teams this season, which means two pools of 9, with one team in each pool having a bye each week.

The Wednesday evening Ladder League is a semi-competitive team entry league. Teams stay the same all season. Teams retaining at least 2 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. One team in each 9 team pool has a bye 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. 

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 9 team draw for Round Robin play. 
    Coming soon!
  • 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. Note that scores are used only if head to head results cannot definitively break a tie (see below).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 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 a draw to the button, 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 (drawmaster’s decision) not be played, unless it is the last week of the draw. 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.
