Pay your fines (FINES? We have a hog pot where you pay a $1 fine if you hog a rock or throw one through the house or out of play without touching a rock in play) and then we have a HOG POT draw). During the game, honk the horn, ring the cow bell, own it ;) ... $1 MAXIMUM per Sunday. 
Usually we are done by noon.

During the 2023/24 season, our league raised $1722 for the RICHMOND HILL COMMUNITY FOOD BANK!

Benefits of playing Sunday Sinners:
1. If you're a new curler, it's an awesome Developmental league. No pressure, lots of curlers of all experience levels to answer questions. No matter your level of experieince, it's a great place to try shots you maybe wouldn't try during league games (called a Sunday morning shot througout the club) and it's an opportunity to share your knowledge with new curlers.
2. Meet a whole new group of people. Our Sinners group has always had people from all leagues participating.
3. Sunday morning ice is renowned to be the best ice anywhere. Bill Reid and Grant Flinn (our ice makers) make sure of that
4. The music is awesome and makes the on ice experience more fun ... Yes ... Shaking your curling booty is welcomed! Sing alongs encouraged.

5. Attendance, pace of play and winning percentages are tabulated to determine the SOTY (Sinners Of The Year) awards.

Kathy Kinnear: I think Sinners is a great league!  There is good curling on great ice in a fun and lighthearted atmosphere. This -  along with the rotating format is also an excellent learning and practice time. I love it. Many years ago, after several invitations, I finally managed to drag my butt out of bed on a Sunday morning and became a Sinner at RHCC.
Vito Lozer: I was welcomed into the group and the rules and rotation were explained to me ... I just about crapped myself when I realized that I was the skip for the first 2 ends and had no clue what I was doing. We went out on the ice, everyone was helpful and reassured me that this was going to be a good learning experience. They were right! Now, waking up on Sunday mornings for Sinners is easy. I know that there will be awesome people out there ready to play, joke around and welcome and encourage newcomers. Good tunes and beautiful Sunday morning ice courtesy of Bill Reid provide the perfect atmosphere for a pleasurable experience. At Sinners, I've learned a lot, met wonderful people in the process and have had fun and a beer and a sandwich to end the morning ... A good way to spend Sunday morning :)  I will be a Sinner for life :)
Gilles Philippe: So many reasons, too numerous to list. Let's just say it makes you significantly better. If you don't like the sinner name, consider what it truly is: The personal development league that's played on Sunday morning.
John Harvey: Sinner's is the best way to learn more about curling in one session than playing one position on a team. New players are thrown into skipping right away and get a new respect for strategy and game calling. $5 for 8 ends and a sandwich afterward is a really good deal too. You get to meet new people, and perhaps mistaken for owning a glass eye. All in good fun.
Alex  Marton:  Being a sinner is great. As a new member to the club it is a great way for me to meet other members and learn from them the nuances of the game.  Having the chance to play all positions also helps me improve my game, skills and strategy. Most of all it is a fun event both on the ice, especially those 'Sunday morning shots" you would not try during league play and après curling.  If you have'nt sinned you should give it a try.
