Emails this week included details on which brooms / brush heads are allowed on the ice at the Royals this year, but due to an editing error we created a little confusion for skips. Just to ensure clarity, we are not allowing the following devices for sweeping:
- hair brushes
- corn brooms
- Hardline brooms with plastic inserts
The Skips email included a link to the World Curling Federation’s rules as context, but we are not following the WCF rules which are far more restrictive. If any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org any time!
