Important Playdown Information

The SFBACC has club-specific playdown dates and policies. Because MoPac and California are growing and we're using new playdown processes this year, please pay close attention to the club website and stay in contact with the SFBACC Competitive Curling Director, Michael Lively (mlively@bayareacurling.com), for any changes and updates.

Club Nationals (men's and women's)

Sign-up deadline: Oct 15. Email mlively@bayareacurling.com with the names of your teammates and your intent to compete. There will be other steps and deadlines after this - Michael Lively will keep you informed. You do not need to pay any money on Oct 15. **This is a hard deadline.**

Playdown dates:
- Internal SFBACC playdown (if necessary) - date(s) undetermined
- MoPac regional playdown - January 13-15 @ Olympic Speed Skating Oval in Kerns, Utah

All players in this event must be league-playing, dues-paying members in good standing of the same club. They do not need to be American citizens since this event does not lead to Worlds.

There may be two rounds of playdowns for this, a club playdown and a MoPac regional playdown. This is the first time MoPac has run its own playdown on arena ice, so the process and format for the playdown may change. However, at the moment, each club in the region will be guaranteed one berth in the event. If not all clubs send teams, then some clubs will be allowed to send additional teams. (The process for extra team selection has not been finalized.) Teams that attend the MoPac regional playdown will need to pay the USCA sign-up fee of $290 and the regional playdown ice fee of $200. Teams may also need to pay to participate in the local playdown, though the cost of that has not been determined.

Pacific International Cup (PIC) (men's and women's)

Sign-up deadline: October 15. Email mlively@bayareacurling.com with the names of your teammates and your intent to compete. There will be other steps and deadlines after this - Michael Lively will keep you informed. You do not need to pay any money on Oct 15. **This is a hard deadline.**

Playdown dates: To be determined but there will likely be a California playdown on President's Day weekend (Feb 18-20) in Hollywood.

Fees: Will depend on the number of teams that register.
