Tournament procedure / mode
We play online in the registered teams against each other, first a preliminary round, then a final round of the best 10 teams and finally finals. Even for teams that have already been eliminated, watching and cheering along is of course possible and even desired. Spectators are also welcome (as long as space is available in the online channel). We will play in English!

Team / Entry: Maximum 4 players, minimum 3 (team outfit desired). Since we are playing online, you can of course register across clubs and locations. Please keep in mind that the registration is binding, because we are preparing the format intensively due to the participants. If a player is prevented from playing, please provide a substitute for your team.

Technique: We play via Zoom and recommend to install the application on your PC. Of course, participation via smartphone is also possible, but a larger screen is advantageous for many of the games. In addition, you will need a browser (Chrome, Edge, etc.) for some of the games.

Preparations: Please create a joint WhatsApp group or similar with your team - this way you can "secretly" consult among yourselves before one of the team logs in a solution. In addition, all players will be sent a questionnaire separately in advance, which must be filled out (5-10 minutes effort) - this will become important in the course of the tournament and therefore we need all mail addresses ;) But you are NOT allowed to talk about this among yourselves!!! We trust in your curling spirit.

Entry fee: 5 Euro per team, of which we want to buy a prize for the winners. You will receive the transfer details after registration.

Dinner/Break: Registered teams will receive recipe suggestions for a delicious Cologne buffet, which you are welcome to prepare and enjoy during the evening. There will be a short break around 7:30 p.m., after which the tournament can be concluded with a virtual dinner.

Duration: from 6pm until about 10pm -> but since this format is a premiere for us, we can only estimate that ;)Please note that we start 6pm CET (= 5pm GMT)!

Further information: About 6 days before the tournament all registered players will get a mail with the necessary info: Zoom link, recipes and questionnaire (which must be send back soon)
