    How many ends in a game of 4s constitutes a game if bad weather stops play.

    If a game is stopped, the teams will have to play to a finish on another occasion to get a result. The game resumes from the point where the last end was played. It can be agreed before the game starts to play a reduced number of ends ie 18 instead of 21 in 4s, 15 instead of 18 in triples and so on.
    The number of ends constituting a game comes in when multiple rinks are used eg middleton cup (72 i think ) over 6 rinks.

    My club had this happen last week, home green flooded, away green finished. The opposition conceded not wanting to come back to finish the game.

    The controlling body should cover the situation in the Conditions of Play,

    Yes - and often more specifically than the simple statements in the Laws.

    The Laws cannot possibly cover the situation,All leagues and there are lots of them should cover the situation to suit the league concerned, in the same way they control visits to the head.and dress etc.

    No criticism of the Laws in this respect intended, John. Subsidiarity in operation - and rightly so.

    You probably had some good weather, too - it can get a bit 'nasty' on the moor in winter: I've been snowed in with no water and failed central heating for 3-4 days several times. My Land Rover could get me out, but all you do is pile up a wall of snow in front in the narrow sunken lanes, and soon come to a halt, so best to stay put - I always keep the cupboards/freezer well-stocked just in case, although it's only happened three times in 37years - lots more occasions when it's just been miserable cold/damp weather, 'though.

    Beer always on offer.
