A 4 team single elimination playoff will be held on Sunday February 22nd 2015 to determine FRCC’s representative to compete in the Travelers Men’s Winnipeg Regional, being held March 12-15, 2015 at the Fort Rouge CC. The winners from the regional will compete in the Travelers Curling Club Provincial Championship, being held April 3-5, 2015 at the Carman and Miami CC’s.
The playoff will consist of 1 team from each night of FRCC’s men’s leagues (Monday to Thursday). A playoff spot will be offered to the top ranked (aggregate points) eligible team on each respective night after the completion of the 2nd round. Competing teams must consist of players from their registered roster, with the allowance of 1 spare from the club if necessary, who must play lead. If the top ranked eligible team is not able to compete on the established date, the playoff spot will be offered to the next highest ranked eligible team from that same night, and so on, until the spot is filled.
