LATEST NEWS - (19 March 2018)

This page will now bring you some topics that might effect the league that has come from the latest committee meetings.

1. The Harding cup for this years billiards have had all the rounds done BEFORE the halfway changes so that each player will play on the same handicap and therefore have no problems on what handicap they should be playing under.

2. Don't forget that this years semi final dates for billiards will played at the home players club, and ONLY the FINAL will be played at a neutral venue (unless 2 players from the same club contest the final). The finals for each of the competitions will be played during the week, this is due to the refereeing situation.

3. This years billiard competitions which are now published are final, so please if you can not make any of the FINALs or any other round please don't go in for the competition as this is not fair on the people that you have beaten in the earlier rounds.

4. In the coming months we are going to hopefully trial a results program where the teams can send their Result Cards through WATTSAPP. It is hopeful that at least 1 or 2 people in each team can send the photo of the result card through to this page where myself, Graham and a couple of others on the committee can look at these cards and get the results early. It will help us update the website quicker and help Graham with the write up that goes in the paper, also Chris who collates the info on a spreadsheet.

OTHER NEWS

If you feel that you are not getting enough coverage by the NEWS then please contact them yourself & complain to them & NOT GRAHAM.

Some of you have contacted Graham Simper regarding recent write ups in the NEWS.

Graham in his own time and when he's on holiday I do the write ups and write the report and send it to the News to go in Fridays edition.

We (Graham & I) have no jurisdiction on what and how much the news will put in. The report is due to how much space that the News give us and it is out of our hands. Even though we do our bit the News have their editor and own people who edit the report and then put in what they can fit in.

Please be patient as it is NOT Grahams fault as he is doing his best, but is out of his hands.
