February 2014 Newsletter
League
No sooner have we started the second half of the season, once again it is disappointing that some team captains are continuing to be persistently late in texting their results and posting their results cards. As a consequence, the Committee will be proposing for a new rule to be included in the league rules for next season to deduct penalty points from offending teams. Currently the league table for last week cannot be finalised due to results still awaited.
So for the rest of this season until this matter can be resolved at the AGM, please could BOTH Team Captains text Adam Ingram and Cathy O’Neill the match result (or use the free online submission form on the league website) following the conclusion of each league match. If you are a member of our Facebook Group, please also post on there so players can see the other teams results. Thank you.

Tournaments
The last 16 rounds of the Scratch Singles, Scratch Plus Singles, Handicap Singles and Handicap Doubles are now in progress, and all matches are due to be arranged no later than Friday 21 February 2014 and played by Friday 28 February 2014. All drawsheets can be found on the league website. Should you have any issues trying to contact your opponent then please advise the Tournament Secretary, Adam Ingram on 07901-723360.

Snooker Etiquette
