Play will start at 9.30 am on all four days.  Games will consist of 14 ends or 2 hours maximum.

Once all jacks are set, the bell will sound to start each game.  A second bell will sound 5 minutes before the end of each game.  No more jacks may be cast after the second bell has been rung.

Each team will play 7 games in the round robin stage and the four group winners will contest the semi finals (winner A v B and winner C v D) followed by the final and third and fourth place play off.

2 points for a win and 1 point for a draw.  Shot difference will count in the event of teams finishing level on points.

Where teams are still level after points and shot difference, the winner of the game in which they played each other will be declared the winner.  Failing this a count back of ends won will decide the group winner.
