REGULAR SEASON GAMES – Sunday September 29th, October 6th.
Regular season curling starts on September 29th with draws at 3pm and 5pm. The first round schedule, season calendar and updated spares listing will be posted asap in mid September. Please check the schedule to see if you play on Opening Day, Sunday September 29th. In the meantime, please familiarize yourself with the league website, review the essentials of curling etiquette and brush up on league rules at www.rainbowrockers.org.

Due to our league expansion, we will all play more games (for the same fee as last year!), but this also means we need to squeeze more draws into the schedule.  PLEASE NOTE: ALL 40 teams will play a regular season game on Sunday October 6th, and  Saturday October 19th. See the first round schedule for details.
