To Tick or Not To Tick.
1 Your team is holding two shots. The skip asks you to draw to the jack; you do so, but with perhaps a metre too much weight. Result, you move the kitty and you loose the advantage and go one down. No tick – not mat length
2 Same as in 1. The result this time is that you trail the jack a metre, stay with it and still retain the shot. You have gone down from two to one shot. No tick – not mat length. Measure is of achieving mat length not getting or loosing shot.
3 The skip asks you to draw to the jack, but this time you are a metre or so wide and get a wick off an earlier short bowl and your bowl stops within a mat length of the jack. Tick
4 You are asked to do an upshot and remove an opponent’s bowl that the skip has designated. All goes well and the bowl is removed to your side’s advantage. Tick
5 Same as in 4 but this time, the bowl you took out takes the jack with it and your side goes one shot down. Tick
6 You have been asked to remove an opponent’s bowl and your bowl passed within a bowls width of the target. Tick
7 Two bowls belonging to the opposition are resting together, your skip asks you to remove the one on your left, but you go a little narrow and your bowl passes a little to the right of the opposition’s right hand bowl. No Tick
8 Your skip wants a long bowl and asks you to place your bowl 2 metres behind and to the left of kitty to cover opposition bowls. All goes as planned and you finish up within a mat length of the point designated. Tick
9 Same request as in 8, but this time you are a little short and stop within a mat length behind the jack and add to your score. No Tick
The Criteria is as follows:
1 The bowl finishes within one mat length of the designated target
( which could be the jack or another position the skip designates )
2 In the case of an upshot targeting an opposition bowl, either hitting the target or passing no more than one bowls width from the target.
3 If an upshot is targeting 2 bowls or more you need to touch the target, no tick
for a near miss.
4 No Ticks are to be awarded for a “Dead” end.
