Curling Tips of Week:

  1. If a delivered stone is touched (burned) between the hoglines, it is removed from play immediately. If it is burned after it crosses the far hogline, allow the rock to continue until all rocks come to rest. The non-offending team may choose to either (a) allow the play to stand, (b) remove the touched stone and replace all affected stones as close as possible to their original position or (c) place the touched stone and all stones it would have affected where they reasonably consider the stones would have come to rest had the violation not occurred.
  2. For Skips and Thirds – Hold the broom along the tee line when calling draw shots, even for guards. This will give you a good reference point for calling future shots. Also hold the broom directly in front of your body so the person delivering has a single target.
  3. BROOMSTACKING”: As you know curling is a gentlemen and ladies sport for gracious but serious competitors, as “curlers play to win, but never to humble their opponents”. Another well practiced tradition is called Broomstacking! One of the greatest traditions in curling is broomstacking. The term refers to the social get-together after each game. Originally, curlers, after completing a curling game on the pond, would stack their brooms in front of the fire and enjoy beverages with the opponent. This tradition is still alive today and it is expected that you partake in broomstacking after every game. The custom dictates that the winners buy the losers the first round of drinks.
