All member clubs in each Zone are eligible to host a Zone play down event. Host clubs are normally selected on a rotation basis within each Zone.
The Combined Championship Event is truly a grand event complete with team photo’s, parade of teams on the ice, a “toast” to the piper, a welcoming from dignitaries, ceremonial first rock, a meet and greet, hospitality room, prize draws, 50/50 draw and topped off with a Gala Awards Banquet on the last evening.
This is a grand social event to acknowledge the winners, give thanks to the host and unwind after four days of competition.
All PCMCA Bonspiel’s and Playdown’s are governed by the “Rules of Play of Curl BC”.
The delivery of a stone may be delivered with a “curling/delivery stick” in all PCMCA Play. Here, apply.
At Provincial Combined Competition play, should a tie result after round-robin play a special “playoff” will take place. All members of each team will deliver two stones up and two stones back in their team throwing order. Sweeping is allowed. Points for each stone thrown by each team member are awarded and totaled on the basis of 4 points for a stone touching the button, 3 points touching the four-foot, 2 points touching the eight- foot, and 1 point touching the twelve foot. The team having the highest combined team point total is declared the Provincial Combined Champion.
