Utica Six Sheet Open

Friday-Sunday, December 7-9, 2018
Limited to 24 teams
Participants must be 21 or older

An open-format bonspiel with a 4-game guarantee and six final events. Teams may be composed of any mix of men or women, shooting in any order. To give this event a unique twist, games will be played with the "Fredericton Rule" used in the Everest Challenge: any stone completely covering the pin is scored as 2 points. So put on a different strategy hat, and have a fun weekend of curling at Utica!

Four preliminary games will determine placement and pairings in the championship finals (six events). Games will be 8 ends, except (1) any stone completely covering the pin is scored as 2 points; (2) in the event of a tie after 8 ends, the winner will be determined by a draw-to-the-button.
