League Restart / Fold Dec 8, 2021 10:34:09 GMT

At a committee meeting at the Fleur yesterday evening there was plenty of time for discussion as the pub had no bitter on draft! . Fortunately I had got the push bike out then put it away as the weather was so poor and decided to drive and not drink.
Unfortunately not all interested teams were represented, partly due to covid isolations.
The league still has six potential teams. The Market Inn made it clear that, to have a table back in, both their teams would need to be playing on Tuesday nights. The Market would not surrender the space for a table for one match a fortnight. It was not certain whether the Market 'A' will be playing as they had no representative, phone calls were made and they will hopefully be playing. The Market 'B' team made it clear they would only be playing if the Market had a table.
Likely teams are Five Bells (one former Cow team lost), Fleur (one team lost??), Market 'A', Market 'B', Alma (one team lost for certain). The Anchor will be approached to see if the continued interest in the table there might produce a team. The Fitz table has been removed.
The decision was made to plan for a restart on Tuesday Jan 11th with a new all play all winter league format. Seeding of teams into two divisions will be discussed when the situation is clearer.
The Red Cow table will go in the Five Bells on Tuesday Jan 4th at 2000hrs
The finals night tables will go in the Sandwich pubs on Wednesday Jan 5th, Market at 1930hrs, Fleur at 2030hrs.
If the Market Inn is lost then the league will fold and the tables disposed of as a job lot for what we can get. There will be no point in wasting the time and effort of individual sales to maximise revenue as there will be no league to benefit.
If the league does restart then removing three tables from Chris's place should make room to start work on the others, though progress wil be slow.
