- 20 minutes before each game the teams need to flip a coin and the winner of the flip will have a choice of first/second practice or rock color. If the opposing team is not there by 15 minutes before the game time then the no offending team has the option of practice and rock color. Practice is one rock up and one rock back for each player. At the end of your teams practice session one person throws a draw with sweeping to determine hammer (closest to pin). Opponent must verify distance.
