Charlotte Curling Club Team Entry Rules
Any team with two or more Charlotte Curling members is considered a club team.
Four club team slots are being held and participating teams will be selected by lottery.
The Bonspiel Chair gives her reserved team slot to the Ice Makers. This will NOT be considered a club team in the lottery, but rather an additional club team allowed to participate in the bonspiel.
One club team slot will be reserved for a five and under club team, which will be drawn first, and then all entries in that pool will be put into the general pool of team entries. After which the remaining three team slots will be drawn.
Should a team register with only one Charlotte member and then change their roster to have two or more Charlotte Curling members, that team will then be considered a club team and will be subject to the lottery.
Club team entries must register for the club team lottery by April 22, 2019. Lottery drawing will be at the Annual Meeting on April 27, 2019. Club members do not need to be present to claim their spot, if selected.
The Bonspiel Chair reserves the right for final interpretation of these rules.
