This competition runs fortnightly in parallel with the Jubilee. It has 2 parts; club skips and thirds form a mini league (S&3), while the leads and seconds form another (L&2). Within each league the teams play each other twice, swapping positions after the first set of games. In the S&3 teams the skip swaps with the second and the lead swaps with the third, while in the L&2 teams the lead swaps with the second and the third swaps with the skip. The aim of this competition is to give players experience of playing in different positions. Teams of four players play in a league. 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. Ends up and if still equal shots up. If still equal teams shall play a deciding game.
This is a league where the teams are made up of two players from each of Orwell Ladies and Orwell, playing in alternate positions. Teams are divided into two leagues which play matches with 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, ends up and if still equal shots up. A final will be played between the winners of each league.
Points is an individual challenge where the player has to deliver specific shots and points are awarded depending on how close the result is to the desired result. There are a maximum of 10 disciplines, some drawing, others hitting, and each player has 2 shots in one direction and 2 shots on the next sheet in the other direction for each discipline. Each shot can receive 0, 1 or 2 points, thus a maximum of 8 points for each discipline.
Points are played in accordance with RCCC rules with the following exceptions:
There is a trophy for the overall winner, and one for the highest up lead or second within the club. The top 5 players will go on to represent the club at the KDLB Points.
Skips and thirds play with seconds and leads. A player eliminated in the first round may reserve at lead to a player requiring a substitute, but only after all reserves have been asked.
Games are five ends or the bell, whichever comes first, until the semis and finals. Semis are five ends and finals are 7 ends, and if tied, a further end is played.
