(Deadline 1st March 2019) Matches are to be arranged by the pairs involved but a strict deadline ** will be in operation and there will be no extension for any personal reason whatsoever. **DEADLINE: The final date for the leagues is December 19 th . If not played before that date both pairs must be present in the club by 9.30am to play after that days Roll Up. A "no show" will result in a -1 loss for that team or both if neither shows. It will mean elimination in the knockout stages. If both teams are present but inclement weather prevents play (in the view of the committee member i/c the Roll Up) then a group match will be treated as halved and a knockout match decided by a putting competition if possible or failing that a coin toss ANY PROBLEMS TO BRIAN KIRBY PLEASE.
