Join us for Greenmarket's First Annual Rutabaga Curling Competition!
This event is during the Union Square Friday Greenmarket and is free and open to the public for attending, viewing & cheering. Sign up for the Rutabaga Curling Competition VIEWER ticket if you want to attend but not participate.
To participate in the competition, sign up for the Rutabaga Curling Competition PARTICIPANT ticket (also free, but only 20 spots!).
The court is approximately 55' long, 8' wide, lined with wooden planks and ends with one big circular target. Contestants are divided into sections (three players per section). The top finisher in each section qualifies for Round Two and the top finishers from that round qualify for the Championship Round. The top two contestants in the championship round are awarded gold and silver, along with a small prize from the market and, of course, eternal bragging rights. Each contestant gets one roll per round. Once a rutabaga has been thrown it shall lay on the field of play until all other contestants in that section have rolled. Thrown rutabagas are subject to being knocked by subsequent rolls.
Participants can BYOR (Bring Your Own Rutabaga), but we will also have some available for use.
Participation is free, but if you sign up you as a participant you are commited so please be there!
