A little reminder about a long standing rules which most of you adhere to –
5. Pairs to be on the board by 8.00pm and toe the oche at 8.15pm. Surprisingly this week I was notified that despite both teams being present before 8pm to start the match on time, the home team took some 30mins to set up for the fixture. Clearly this is not correct and I ask on this occasion we try our hardest to adhere to times.
