If In Doubt, Measure!
At the conclusion of the second end of the match between Nova Scotia and Alberta, there were two rocks that were pretty close, but to nearly everyone's eyes, it looked as if the Alberta (yellow) rock was shot rock. But Nova Scotia wisely asked for a measurement, recalling that BC lost a point earlier in the tournament by misjudging whether a rock was in the rings.
It turned out the measurement showed the Nova Scotia rock was noticeably closer to the pin.
Makes me wonder about the accuracy of the painting of those rings in Charlottetown.
