We would like to inform you that system cards are now required when playing at Bairnsdale
Jean Macleod has lost her prescription sunglasses. They are in the Blues Brothers style and may have been mistakenly picked up on Friday or Saturday last week.
Don't be alarmed if you notice a shifting in your MPs this month. ie some coming off and being reinstated.
This is because we had to delete a January session due to a scoring error and subsequently recalculate the best players for January.
Please be assured you have your full MP entitlement.
