The Curling Masters in Champery is open for 24 teams playing a round robin in 4 groups of 6 teams.
Each game is played over 8 ends. If the game is tied after 8 ends, an extra end will be played (during the round robin). If this end has no score, the team without the right of the last stone in the extra end wins the game.
In the Quarter-, Semi- and Final Games on Sunday in case of a tie after 8 ends, extra ends are played till the game is decided.
1 point will be awarded for a win and 0 points for a loss.
The best two teams from each group will play in the quarter finals, where the first ranked teams
will play the second ranked teams from another group.
The winners of the quarter final qualify for the semifinal; the other 4 teams are equally ranked in the 5th place.
The winners of the semifinal will play in the final for first and second place, the two other teams are equally ranked in the 3rd place.
There are no time clocks except for the semifinal and final games. Teams will be required to adhere to the scheduled game plan.

In the first round the two teams flip a coin for the hammer.
In the following rounds of the round robin the LSD will determine which team has the hammer in the first end of the next game.
