Updated 2018-10-18 with revised notice of a shortened Fall 2018 session. Links in the text below refer to the Winter 2018 session and will be updated in due course.
Notice about the Fall 2018 and Winter 2019 short mat sessions.

Full short mat sessions will not re-commence until the January-April 2019 winter session, because of the Anderson House renovations.

We hope to have a shortened Fall 2018 session commencing around the end of November.

Details will be published sometime in October.

Changes introduced for the Winter 2018 Session

Details of the January-March 2018 session can be seen on the Winter 2018 Session Poster.

The schedule of all A, B, and C league games in Winter 2018 was finalized December 29, 2017. There will be no further updates. From now on, players maintain their own schedules.

In the Winter 2018 Session, the short mat managers have decided to:

  1. Continue with the online RSVP personal reservation system for Daily Draws. The introduction of tablet screens in Anderson House further facilitates use of this system.
  2. Retain the streaming of the leagues, based on self-selection, into “more competitive” (A & C) and “less competitive” (B &D) leagues. There was insufficient interest in D Singles for this session, so only C Singles will be offered
  3. Stage eight Daily Draw games per week. This is a reduction of one game per week. There were almost no enrollments in the Tuesday 9:00 a.m. session in Fall 2017, so it has been discontinued. (See 2017F Daily Draw bookings statistics.)
  4. Continue the Women’s Drop-in game on Wednesdays and Men’s Drop-in on Thursdays. 
  5. Hold two one-day tournaments this session on Saturday February 3 and Saturday March 10. There will be no inter-club tournament this session.

Player Codes and Personal Schedules for the Winter 2018 Session

  • List of League Entrants in the Winter 2018 session.  This is a real time list. As soon as you submit your application to play in a short mat league, your name will appear on this list.  The list for Winter 2018 closed December 10, 2017; the list will reopen for Fall 2018 registrations mid-August, 2018.
  • Player Codes for the Winter 2018 session.
  • Personal Schedules for league players in the Winter 2018 session, in alphabetical order by surname. When finalized December 29, 2017, valid as of that date only. Thereafter, players maintain their own schedules.

If you wish to print your own schedule, results can be unpredictable when printing directly from the website. It is best to download the whole PDF document to your own computer and select your own page for printing.

Tournaments for Winter 2018

Tournaments for Winter 2018

There will be two members-only, one-day tournaments in Winter 2018.

Tournaments will be held February 3 and March 10. Format for both tournaments is likely to be two-bowl triples, on three mats. The tournament poster, registration form and current player list for each tournament will be made available online in due course.

Registration is online only for these tournaments; no signup sheet will be posted on the Anderson House noticeboard. (Now that we have a tablet computer available in Anderson House, anyone can sign up online at the club.)  Club tournaments, which require single registration only, will use the RSVP system.

When you register for an upcoming tournament, your name should appear immediately on the current List of Tournament Entries. If not, you have not successfully registered and should re-submit your entry.

Shortmat Scorecards

Here are various short mat scorecards in the form of an Excel workbook. Each tab shows a different format, with three scorecards per page. You can choose whichever format you like and print off the page. (You need to download this workbook to your own computer, if you wish to make any changes.)

This is the scorecard, in PDF format, that we are currently using for short mat tournaments.


Bookings and Schedule Changes Winter 2018

The Winter 2018 short mat session starts Monday January 1 and officially finishes Sunday March 25 by which time all league games should be completed. Daily Draw bookings, on one or two mats, will continue until both short mats are taken up, likely in mid-April, after the Open House.

We use the Short Mat Schedule and the RSVP reservation system to organize short mat play.

  • League Games: The online Short Mat Schedule for Winter 2018  shows the times and dates of all events taking place on our two short mats — league games, social games, tournaments and personal bookings.  The Schedule is updated throughout the session with the latest information. Please e-mail Andrew Harley with any changes to the times of your A, B, and C league games. He will move your game to its new time on the Short Mat Schedule.
  • Daily Draws: We will continue to use the RSVP reservation system for Daily Draws, following its successful introduction for the Fall 2017 session.  You enter the system by clicking on the date of your Daily Draw on the online short mat calendar and follow the instruction for registration. You will see the names of all players who have previously registered for that session. As soon as you register, your name is added to the list of players. Up to 12 players can join one of the daily social games on the two mats. After 12 reservations have been made, RSVP refuses further entries. Note that there is always a way to divide into two games no matter how many players there are.
