There are to be no trial ends in any competitions.
        
If an end is killed it will be played again even if this means that in singles no-one reaches 21 shots, the             score after 2 hours stands.
        
The names on the card for the first round of a competition is the entry and if a substitute is required in           a later round that person may not skip.
        
No practice or league game shouls be played by the entrant on the rink on the same day that he / she             has booked for a competiton.
        
If at the end of normal play the result is  a draw then an extra end must be played ( even if this means             the following game is delayed) to reach a result. A coin to be tossed to decide who goes first.
        
If a measure can not decide the shot then it is a live end and no score.
