A coin toss will decide the first and second pre-game practice for the games with the asterisk otherwise the team with dark coloured stone handles will have first practice. At the conclusion of the team’s pre-game practice, two players each deliver a stone to the tee at the home end; the first stone with a clockwise rotation, and the second stone with a counter-clockwise rotation. The distances are combined to determine the Last Stone Draw (LSD) for that game.  The team with the lesser LSD distance has the choice of delivering first or second stone in the first end. If the LSDs are equal, a toss of the coin will determine which team has the choice. First named teams in each draw play the stones with the dark coloured handles, and wear dark coloured upper playing garments. Second named teams in each draw play the stones with the light coloured handles, and wear light coloured upper playing garments.
