The Skins will be played in the same format as previous years with 24 teams being split into 4 sections of 6 teams where they will play each other once in a round robin format. All games will be 6 ends with the value of each end increasing as the games go on.
The top 2 teams in money ranking order from each section will progress to the knockout stages starting with the quarter finals on Sunday morning. By close of play on Sunday evening the Inverness Skins Champions for 2012 will lay their hands on a handsome trophy as well as a large sum of money. Most teams will recoup their entry fee and by the end of the weekend some teams may even make a profit.
A small beer and bite reception on Friday evening and a buffet and disco on Saturday night will ensure everyone has a good time off the ice and anyone who has been to the Skins event before can vouch for that.
The entry fee is £200 per team and the closing date is Tuesday 31st July.
