Bonspiel Format:

This year’s spiel is again a pooled round robin format. There are 30 teams in 10 pools of 3, each team playing all of the other teams in their other pool. eg. Pool1 plays Pool2. Seeding for playoffs will be first on win/loss/tie with 2 points for a win and 1 point for a tie; and second for points scored. The top 8 teams will be seeded in the “A” event, teams 9-16 in the “B” event and teams17 through 24 in the “C” event. Playoffs will proceed in a single knockout bracketed system beginning on Thursday morning. Good Luck!
