We have five teams in the league this season (2016-2017). This means that we have ten matches, in total, to play. Each team has four fixtures, two at home and two away. I would like teams to play their matches by around next Easter. This allows at least six months to get the matches played. This appears, on the face of it, much time to get it all sorted out. However, as I have found out, if Captains let things slide then we get the annoying delays that really frustrate players. Please be proactive and try and get matches played. They can be played in any order and at any venue. The first named team is the "home" team and the second named team is the "away" team. Please would the home team provide light refreshments for the away team.

Each match is played over 24 boards in two 12 board stanzas, 12 boards against each pair. The results are IMPed and this is turned into a V.P. score out of 20. Would the winning Captain please forward the result, and the names of all the players in the match, asap, to me. As I have stressed so many times, it is a great help if a team consists of 5 or 6 players. This makes it easier to arrange dates for matches. It is not a rule that a team has extra players but it is a wise thing to do.

Please would the away Captain contact the home Captain to arrange matches. Hopefully there will not be any problems about arranging matches but if there is then please get in contact with me. It is up to the home Captain to arrange boards and equipment etc for each match. Hopefully this includes hand records although this is not a rule. Good luck to all teams. Please play all matches in a very friendly spirit. We all know each other well and we should be able to have a friendly but competitive competition. good luck to all the teams.
