Abbotsford Curling Classic Cashspiel is Back!
November 25-28, 2016
Welcome to the Abbotsford Curling Club and the return of The Abbotsford Curling Classic Cashspiel. as part of the WCT. There will be $28,000 in cash for the Men’s event and $20,000 cash for the Women’s event and premium ice conditions to be expected. We will be using championship rocks provided by Smart Ice (BJ’s rocks – same rocks being used for the BC men’s and women’s championships) and ice will be prepared by Smart Ice for this event.
All games will be 8 ends and follow CCA rules, extra ends required if tied. We are limiting to 24 teams in the Men’s pool with 8 qualifying and 16 in the Women’s pool with 6 qualifying. There will be a 5 minute pre-game practice (4 rocks up and 4 rocks back) before each draw. Following the pre-game practice 1 player will draw to the button (if they cover the pin a different player will draw again), this will be used to determine hammer.
**Event format and payouts will be determined by number of entries**
The event will start Friday at 8am with the Finals on Monday afternoon. The café will be open to provide food and drinks Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Our host hotel is The Coast hotel with rates of $99 / night. The abbotsford airport is only 15 minutes away and we will offer a shuttle service to and from the airport and hotel to club. Please confirm ahead of time with your travel plans.
We wish you all the best of luck and good curling.
