Curling not exciting enough for you and skeleton sounds downright terrifying?

  • Where: Olympic Plaza outdoor rink (228 8th Ave SE)

  • When: "Lunchtimes" the week of Feb. 25.  Pick a day (February 25, 26, 27, 28 OR March 1) that works best for you and if your team crushes it, you could make Finals Day on March 4!

Looking for more info about the event? Here’s how it works:

  1. Teams arrive at Olympic Plaza between 11:30 a.m. & 11:45 a.m. on their scheduled sliding date (please select your preferred date when you register and we will do our best to fit you in on that date!)

  2. After arriving and before 12 p.m., team members will fill out a participation waiver and have the opportunity to practice on the ice and enjoy complimentary hot chocolate, courtesy of Purple Perk.

  3. At 12 p.m., the scheduled tournament play begins. Each team will be scheduled to slide twice during the preliminary rounds.

  4. Each team member will slide once per round.

    The goal is to land as close to the button (center of the rings) as possible.

    Your individual score (as measured by our team of volunteers) is calculated as the total distance (in centimeters) that your inner-tube lands from the button. Effectively, the closer you land to the button, the lower your individual score is. The lower your score is, the better.

    At the end of each round, individual scores from each team members’ slide will be added together and your team’s overall score will be determined.

  5. After the two preliminary rounds are complete, the 5 teams with the lowest overall score between the two preliminary rounds will advance to Slide-Offs; a single additional round where each team member slides one more time. Again, results are determined based on your team’s cumulative distance from the button.

  6. After Slide-Offs, the teams who have placed in the Top 3 positions of the day will win prizes and will be invited back to compete on Finals Day (Monday, March 4) against the other teams who ranked as the best of the best on their respective event dates.
