Cannock Bowls League - Pairs - Qualifiers

The qualifiers are - Daz Gittings/Glyn Owen, Mark Rowe/Paul Johnson, Jack Lester/Ben Lester, James Heming/Stuart Hickson, Joe Hunter/Matt Gilbey, Rob Gibbon/Roger Davies, Matt Henderson/Carl Bates, and Peter Bentley/Michael Churchhill

Tue 11th Jun

Euro's 2024
From the UEFA website there appears to be just one set of fixtures which will impact a Thursday night, 20th June when England are playing at 5pm.
Obviously if both league teams are happy to play at the usual time, or slightly later that evening that is fine.
If though teams would like to reschedule then I'm also ok with this.
However I would expect this to be treated like a reschedule due to bad weather and the rescheduled game be organised within 14 days of the original date.
If you can't reschedule the game within 14 days then you need to get in touch with me and let me know what is planned.  I do not want the default to be that the game will be played at the end of the season, given the weather we are having this year we are at risk of more rescheduled games and so these dates may be needed for this. 

Regards
Helen

Wed 27th Mar

e-mail sent out this morning to the league contact list

Hi all

You are being sent this as an e-mail contact for your team/club in the Cannock Bowls League as per the details sheets completed at the AGM.  If you are not the contact then please let me know who the contact should be.  This will also go onto the website if you have seen it there but not received it by e-mail please let me know to update the contact list.

From now you can update your own contact details and players on the website.  If you at any point update the club/team contacts please e-mail me the details as well.  I have produced a mailing list from the current information and don't revisit the website each time I send an e-mail. 

For new teams the login is shared by all teams in the club so please contact your other captains to find out what this is for your club.  Results should be put on the website asap after the game, especially for the pre-lims of the 4 home/4away.  

As discussed at the AGM please don't forget that for the 4 home/4away each team chooses the order of their players when they put the cards down and as such the games should be played and the results recorded in this order.  This is down to how the competition results are decided should there be a tie on points.

The fixtures are now live on the website along with the details of the prelims and first rounds of the 4 home/4 away competitions.  My apologies I miscalculated when it came to how many games the 11th team would add to the fourth division so division 4 now plays through to the 19th September and as such we will need to review when the 4 home/4away semis and final will be for this division.

In regard to the 4 home/4 away competitions for the other divisions we may need to review the dates for the semis where clubs have got other teams in division 4 due to that division's home games on 29th August.  This will be reviewed once we have the qualifier details.

Best wishes for a good season, as always any questions then please get in touch - preferably by text, WhatsApp or e-mail.  Please remember that I work and so can't necessarily respond very quickly.  If you need contact details for a club you are playing then you can get these by logging in with your clubs login you don't need to contact me.  

Regards

H

e-mail sent out today

Hi

This e-mail is going out to the 2022 contacts I have for each team in the league.  Please forward to the appropriate person if you are no longer your teams contact.

Our aim is to have the League AGM mid March, which means I need to send out the AGM paperwork to all teams by mid February.  I will confirm the date as soon as I can.

As before we will only have one meeting, and will ask that subs are paid at this meeting.  Season dates will be agreed at the AGM and the fixtures will then be finalised and published by early April.

Therefore there is a cut off date for agenda items of Sunday 29th January, please send these to me - helenpskidmore@btinternet.com

If over the winter you have a change in contact for either your team captain or club secretary can you let me know so that I send out the information to the correct person.  AGM paperwork will only be sent out by e-mail so if any individual doesn't have e-mail can they nominate someone who does to receive it please.

If any club is thinking of entering another team or is unfortunately going to be leaving the league please let me know asap.

Cheers

H
