Districts are encouraged to follow the technical information and guidelines found within this manual at all times. When changes are necessary at the District level, participants who qualify for Ontario 55+ Summer Games must be made aware that the following rules will be in use at Ontario 55+ Summer Games .
The gold medal team at the district level is eligible to attend the Ontario 55+ Summer Games ; therefore, each district can send a maximum of two (2) participants.
Any persons not present at the scheduled commencement of play and throughout the competition are in default and are automatically disqualified from the competition. Competitors are obligated to complete the competition regardless of their record in the competition. If a team defaults part way through the competition, the results of that team will be removed from the standings. The organizers shall have an extra team available to play as a "floater" team in case there is an uneven number of teams or in case a team defaults. This team`s results will not count in the final standings.
If there are any questions about rulings, the OSGA Summer Games Technical Manual will be considered correct.
