AGM – A brief round up

There were only a few rule changes at last nights AGM. Most were just wording to certain rules but below is a brief explanation to some of the changes that were voted in.

There had been some confusion over the missing player rule last season, the rule now states that at the start of a game if a team is missing a player then that player can play their missed hands as long as the player is present at the completion of both teams second hands. If they arrive after the second hand then the player may only play the remaining hands with 4 pins awarded for each missed hand.

The restriction on nights of play have now been lifted meaning any team can choose which night they wish to play on, the rule was that the Ladies league teams could only use Mondays and Tuesdays, while the Open League used the other three remaining nights.

This coming season will see the Ladies League teams being invited to enter the Open Knockout Cup. At present 7 ladies teams have taken up the offer (the remaining ladies teams can still ask to enter) meaning that the Knockout Cup will have 60 teams in it which will reduce the number of byes in the early stages of both the Knockout Cup and the Plate. The Ladies Cup will still go ahead towards the end of the season but there will be no Ladies Plate.

All matches shall be played in the week specified unless brought forward, which means teams can by mutual consent play later in the week if needed.

Players who regularly play for a team in a club shall comply with the membership rules pertaining at that club.
