Neil Andrews Legends Classic Welcomes New Entries

Thursday Sep 08 2011

Rookies entering the Manitoba Senior Men's competitive level this year are reminded that one of the best Senior Men's Bonspiels (actually one of the best bonspiels overall - but it is limited to guys 50 & over) of the year is the Neil Andrews Legends Classic at the Brandon Curling Club, October 14-16. Organizers at the sponsoring Guild Insurance Brokers remind me that organizing a Senior event comes with the challenge that each year some of last year's competitors make the decision to drop out due to knees, creaky joints and other similar reasons.

And that means, there are always openings in the draw for the rookie teams, or those who have missed it in past years. Contact Guild Insurance at Telephone: (204) 578-5668; Fax: (204) 578-3374; or Email: [email protected] OR send me an email here at [email protected]. I'll send you the entry form.

Twenty teams play Regular Round Robin Play in Groups of FIVE (four games guaranteed)
** Each game in the round robin will consist of 8 ends (or until completion to determine a winner).
** Each game in the round robin will pay $100 to the winner.
** In addition to the round robin, there will be a draw time set aside for the skills competition. This event will consist of 2 shots by each team player. The team with the most accumulated points will win $500.
** The skills competition will be used to break any ties that result at the end of the Round Robin play.

Eight teams will qualify for Sunday's Championship Play (Sunday October 16h, 2011)
** These 8 teams will consist of 1st and 2nd place teams in each group after round robin play.
** All positioning will be decided by the qualifying rules set out in the Legends Program.

Prize Structure
1st Place $3000
2nd Place $1500
3rd & 4th Place $750/team
5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, Place $300/team
