Guidelines for Umpires

On Completion of Each Game

At the end of the game, collect the score cards as soon as play finishes on each rink.

Check that the score cards are correct in every respect, then pass them to the appropriate person for recording purposes. This must include checking that:

  • the names of all players are on both cards
  • scores on both cards have been recorded against the correct number of ends which have been played
  • the scores on both cards are the same when compared on both an end-by-end and last-end basis
  • both cards have been signed by both skips and they have recorded the time the game finished.

When you have collected all the cards make sure that they are returned to the appropriate representative of the Controlling Body.
