SPEED SHUFFLEBOARD: Speed Shuffleboard shall be used to break all significant ties remaining after a round robin.
Significant ties shall be defined as those ties which alter the placement of the players in subsequent rounds. For example, if two players are tied for first place and the top two players from their group are to be moved into the same next group, then that tie is not significant and no speed shuffle round will be required. If, however, they cannot both be moved into the same next group, then the tie shall be deemed as significant and they will be required to break the tie with a round of speed shuffleboard.
The rules of Speed Shuffleboard are as follows:
1. Each player will be assigned a court by the Tournament Director or his designee. 2. Each player will be provided with eight discs. 3. Upon command, each player will shoot one disc for practice. a. The practice disc will be removed from the court before any other discs are played. 4. Upon command, each of the remaining discs will be played one at a time. 5. A minus 10 (kitchen) will count as +10; all others will count as normal. 6. All discs will remain on the board. 7. Discs may be played from anywhere in the shooting area. 8. Each player must shoot his/her disc before their opponent’s disc comes to a stop. a. Any disc not shot in the allotted time shall be forfeit and removed from the board. 9. After each of the remaining discs is played, the scorekeeper shall announce the value of that disc and write that value and the total score on the scoreboard. 10. After all discs have been shot, the Tournament Director or his designee shall announce the total score for each player and the order of finish for all involved players. 11. The number of rounds will be equal to the number of players tied for the position in question and all players will play one round on each of the assigned courts.
