Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dave Tallack who has for many years done a superb job in his role as results secretary and to Richard Hockey as secretary for organising newsletters, the AGM and as Hampshire secretary. Our grateful thanks !!
Many thanks to Mary and Brian for organising a very successful Summer League!!!!
Chris and Chris Newson will be organising the winter league with Joyce Mannell continuing to be the Treasurer.
PLEASE NOTE: We have both agreed to run the league for the winter but we cannot get the sheets round to all the pubs in Portsmouth, due to work commitments, as Dave used to.
There were no other people willing to take on this role, so the following needs to be put into place for us to be able to run the league.
We must have at least 1 email address per team so that sheets for competitions and league updates ect… can be emailed directly to each team. It will be that player’s responsibility to print enough sheets for their team and landlord/steward.
We are more than happy to have everyone’s email but we must have at least one.
We also are missing registration forms so we have no contact numbers for certain teams.
Attached is a sheet that requires you to fill in your email address ( or addresses ) and also a contact number for the Team Captain and the pub/club you are playing at.
A stamped addressed envelope has been provided for you to return this form no later than October 17th 2011

ALL Team Captains must ensure that your Landlords/Stewards know when there are games on, especially for the Thursday Competition nights! THANK YOU!
As always, all matches from the first half of the season, to be played before the start of the second half, and all matches from the second half of the season to be played by the end of the season!
Reminder – The Black Peg Counts At All Times !!
There are several spare weeks in the league programme. These may be used to play the Competitions and All-England eliminator matches.
