WORLD CUP UPDATE - 09/07/2018


England have got through to the semi-finals, and it is due to be played on Wednesday July 11th. If you have not made alternative plans, make sure you do before Wednesday.
Please be as flexible as possible. It has been suggested to cancel all games and play them at the end of the season. We have looked at that, however some teams want to play this Wednesday and others have stated they will not have a full team then due to holidays. Also it would mean an emergency AGM to change rule 18 and there was not enough time.

REMEMBER: Rules 16 & 17. The other team do not have to agree to change of date. The game can only be rescheduled if both teams agree, if one does not then it must be played on that Wednesday. The team not turning up will not be awarded any dolls or points and the other team will be given a 3-0 win and their players only an average score.
You must inform the secretary of any change and these must be played within 28 days, ie. August 8th.
For those not playing in any competitions on Wednesday 25th July would be an ideal time to play the game.

Cancelling Games - 13/05/2018

Cancelling games

A few games have been cancelled and re arranged for another time. A reminder of what should happen.
Firstly as per rule 17: 'Any games cancelled for what ever reason shall be played within 28 days, without going past the end of season. BOTH teams must agree a revised date at the time of cancellation and the secretary INFORMED. Games not played within the 28 days points and dolls will be void'
You should give as much notice as possible, calling a game off should only be in exceptional circumstances, not because your best player/s are on holiday or at work. If it means playing with seven players so be it.
While we want all games to be played, teams do not have to agree to cancel a game if they are unable to play another night.

A few points for the coming season.
Please make sure you send the result cards in ASAP. Take a picture of the scoreboard or result card in case it goes missing. You can send Andy a picture of the card by, text, WhatsApp or e-mail, but the hard copy must be sent in the post as well. Please take team photos and make sure you tick who sets per leg as it makes writing the report in the Oxford Mail easier.

Two of the main moans every season is calling and foot faults. Calling is down to the designated caller and we hope that everyone calls fairly and to the best of their ability. When throwing, your foot must be behind the oche, not on it or in front of it. If this is happening, give the captain a reminder so it don't happen in the next throw.

All games should be played on a Wednesday as per fixture sheet. If you need to cancel a game, and it must be for a good reason, not because your best player is on holiday or working, contact the team asap to try and rearrange. No one is under any obligation to change a game, but hope that common sense will prevail.The fixtures secretary must be informed immediately. You have 28 days to play the game. We hope that no games will be claimed, so try and come up with a replacement date. All teams have at least 10 players signed on, if you can only muster up seven players, then you play with seven players.
