Google is amazing. Try it some day.

The "Free Guard Zone" Rule. (1) The free guard zone is the area between the hog line and the tee line, excluding the house. Interpretation: A stone which comes to rest biting or in front of the hog line after making contact with a stone in the free guard zone is considered to be in the free guard zone.

@Mark Wallinsburgh
to: Anna Sidorova, Yes.

The first 5 rocks {combined with you and your opponent} can't be taken out.


Except that isn't correct - is it?!!!!!
If you read the rule, the 5th stone can be taken out by the 6th. Why are you posting false information?

Here's the rule from a curling website:
If, prior to the delivery of the sixth stone of an end, a delivered stone causes, either directly or indirectly, an opposition stone to be moved from the FGZ to an out-of-play position, then the delivered stone is removed from play, and any displaced stones are replaced to the original positions, by the non-offending team, to their positions prior to the violation taking place.

The FlyOrDie rule is the same - once the 5th stone has come to rest it can be removed. Previously that applied to the 4th.

To clarify, I don't mean just the fifth stone. Any of the first 5 stones can be removed by the 6th or subsequent stones.

EveMuirhead Yeah I didn't make it clear. "The first 5 rocks can't be used to remove any rocks from play" would be a better way to say it.

I think you meant .."The first 5 rocks can't be used to remove any rocks in the free guard zone from play" would be a better way to say it.

Valoisman, yes of course. This is the problem with explaining something. I just assume people know the rules of curling, even though... I was explaining a rule of curling. Anyway, it's been said now a few times. I'm sure people understand now.

I think Mark had his tongue in his cheek. He knows the rules of curling, but he explained them incorrectly.

EveMuirhead No, I just didn't think it through before I wrote it. People asking questions about the more common rules of curling probably don't have a good grasp of the game, so I should have been careful about describing a rule.
