Wednesday 9 June
Please find the latest tournament update.
Fifteen matches have been played to date with many more scheduled in the Rink Diary.
On a sad note, Ken Smith has had to withdraw from the competition due to ill health, all those he was scheduled to play against will get a bye to the next round, he wishes everyone the best of luck.
Our thoughts are with you Ken, get well soon.
Welcome and thank you to all the members who have entered this year........it's going to be a great tournament
We have 41 members playing in 8 competitions in 135 matches over 5 months until the Club Finals on 18/19 September.
The draws for the 8 competitions, Championship, Handicap, 2 Wood, Veterans, Novices, Fixed Jack, Open Pairs and Drawn Pairs are listed on the "Competitions" page above, just scroll down to find the matches you have entered.
A note on the draws, they were all pulled out of the "proverbial " hat and verified, which gives everyone the chance for Stardom if you play your best.
The handicaps are based on current play and have been adjusted to match the Ladies Handicap ratings, ie Doug Baxter now World....sorry Club Champion is a 1 and everyone is adjusted accordingly.
The most important consideration ....after who you think you are going to win against!... are the dates that the Rounds, QF, and SF have to be played by and when you will have played that match.
So please, start arranging your matches now, contact your opponents and pairs partners and book via the Clock House Rink Diary on the website. Please keep referring back to the dates that the matches have to be played by.
Clubhouse rules apply, ie the challenger books the rink, and arranges the marker for singles games.
This web page will be up-dated regularly so that you, the winners, will know who you are playing in the next rounds.
For this to happen, can the winners of each match please contact me: Text 07914 827 616, email email@example.com.
Good Luck to everyone.........I'm really looking forward to this year.
Please note the following information
The Challenger(s) should offer 3 date to their opponents. In consideration of our working Ladies these should include an evening and/or weekend choice. These should not clash with county dates.
(The Rink Diary offers a provisional date option that must be confirmed within 24 hours).
All games can be played at any time before the play by date the earlier the better.
A ll games will need a Score Card which must be completed with details of the Competition, names and date played.
(Score cards are found in the right drawer of the desk in the Clubhouse)
On completion of a game the score cards should be signed by both players or skips to show the scores have been agreed.and in singles the marker signs too.
Place completed score cards in the pockets on the back of the Locker Room Door.
Do not update results on the Draw Sheets on the wall, the results will be updated by the Captain or Vice Captain.
Remember all single games will need a marker.
Scorecards for the Handicap Competition are prepared beforehand showing the winning number of shots to be reached by each player.
Find these on the back of the Locker Room Door
For the Fixed Jack Competition the rink needs to be prepared before play starts. The Rules are in a folder hanging on the noticeboard if needed. To ease scoring there is a board marked 4,3,2,1 where the winning woods can be placed after each end is completed. This should be found in the locker room!
Any questions on any of the competition rules, please ask.
All games should be enjoyed by all and wish all entrants the best of luck.
Margaret Tinton (Vice Captain) &
Hazel Pudney (Ladies Captain)
