  • League format discussed at August Executive Meeting
    Input from President (John Barber):

    Despite this season's excellent weather conditions, there has been a notable increase in failures to field a full team.  
    By early August*, 21 rinks had been conceded in the Mid-Week Pairs but only 3 in the Friday Fours.

    These proposals, to help rectify this situation, apply only to the Mid-Week Pairs:-
    1.  To amend the 4 Pairs (8 players) format to a 2 Pairs & 1 Triples (7  players) format.
    2.  To permit any player from a lower league to substitute for a player in a higher league.
    3.  To permit any player from the Friday Fours (not registered in the Mid-Week Pairs) to substitute for a Mid-Week Pairs player.
    4.  To notify, in advance, any proposed failure to field a rink to the opposing team.

    These are entirely separate proposals for consideration, at the September meeting, for submission to the A.G.M. and any additional suggestions are welcomed.

    *League Secretary will be able to update these figures at the meeting.
