Format and Schedules

(pdf print versions)

The 2013 Road to the Roar features both a Men’s Competition and Women’s Competition (12 teams in each), each with two berths up for grabs in the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings — December 1-8, 2013 in Winnipeg, MB.

The Draw Format is a Triple Knock-out, with a playoff round for four (4) teams. Each team will remain in the hunt for the playoffs until they have three (3) losses. At that point, they will be eliminated. The four (4) remaining teams of each gender will proceed to the playoffs.

The Playoffs

The top two teams of each gender will have two cracks at getting one of the berths. The bottom two teams will be on one leg entering the playoffs — one loss and they are eliminated.

One winner of each gender will be declared on Saturday, November 9th, 2013, and the final two on Sunday, November 10th, 2013.

Here are the draw times (all times Eastern). The teams and their opening draw times will be decided on or about May 1, 2013.
