March should be the last month for team subs. Unfortunately, some teams are in arrears, and will be sent a letter informing them that failure to pay at a given date will mean suspension from the league. All their future matches will be forfeited until full payment has been received, with no chance of replaying these matches.

Various individual and pairs comps are now under way. Please ensure you make contact with your opponent, as it is the responsibility of BOTH PLAYERS/PAIRS to arrange the fixture. If you are having trouble contacting your opponent, contact the competition organiser immediately, as players who attend the league meeting to claim their unplayed match without contacting the organiser beforehand, will NOT be put through the next round.

Entry forms for the Ladies Open and Mixed Doubles comps should be returned at the March league meeting with all fees that are due.

All teams must verbally appoint referees to oversee each frame. This is mandatory league rule, however if you chose to ignore it, you cannot dispute a frame.
If a frame(s) is disputed then that frame(s) is disregarded, the rest of the match is to be completed, and the card must not be signed by either Captain. The disputed frame explanation should be written on the back of the card, and the disputes secretary should be contacted within 24 hours.

The additional sign on deadline has now passed for the Sunday league. The deadline for the Wednesday league is Tuesday March 3.

The finals of the Wednesday Divisional Cup will be played on neutral tables. These venues will be announced shortly.
Both semi finals of the Sunday League Cup will be played at the Warwick Arms on March 8. The draw will be made on the night.

Our current rule sheet should be displayed near the playing area of your team’s home venue. If there is a need to refer to them during a game, the current copy should be available for quick reference.

In an attempt to reduce our overheads, we have introduced an Email Information Service to provide members with monthly updates.
To help reduce costs, we would like members to subscribe to this Service. The email attachment will be identical to the book that team Captains/Secretaries have previously received by post, and will be available to all league members, not just Captains/Secretaries.
We fully understand that not everyone has access to the internet and email, so for those few teams the book will still be available by post.
Apart from the cost reduction, other advantages will be that the book will be available just a few days after the monthly league meeting, rather than the 11 days it now takes. Any mistakes that arise can be instantly corrected by sending a revised book. Any other information can be easily sent, eg, reminders of important dates such as league meetings and AGM's.
To add your name to the Service, simply send an email to bristolpoolleague(at)btinternet.com
Please include the word “Pool” in the subject line, and in the message box leave your name, team name(s), and whether you are Captain or Secretary of your team, or that you are just a playing member of your team(s). You will receive an email shortly after to confirm your inclusion in the Service.
