Reminder, Sunday 1st July is the closing date for Registrations,
this is also the closing date for entries into the Frdosham Merit,
ring me to enter.
So far this season, the averages have not been correct to the Frodsham League method.
Now, it has been sorted today.
So if you have dropped or risen in the averages, that is the reason why.
Results Secretary Pete writes...
A number of players have been very cheeky and said 'What is it that you do now?'
My reply is very easy. I do more!
Hard to believe, but since everyone else puts the results in, I still have to check all is correct.
Then copy into my PC and onto my old format that I use to use for allbutacross and save it all safely ( hopefully )
This is because, should the MB system crash or their site get hacked, the Frodsham league will have all the information stored safely.
I would then be in a position to put it back onto the allbutacross site, if the worst happens, like in the old days.
So there you are, I'm not sitting here drinking more cups of tea and eating more biscuits....sadly!
Also, many of you must have noticed that many things are mirrored from Cup games etc on both sites.
This allows everyone time to get use to using the new MB system.
I must say to everyone, that the MB system and the way you are all imputting the information is brilliant.
Well done to you all.
Best wishes from Pete
( just about to put the kettle on and look in the cookie jar...probably best not to tell Lynn! )
Cup Competitions...( John B is to check and complete shortly )
Both the Fred Rogers Cup and Alf Jones Cup have been updated.
Both team Competitions are on a waterloo draw, from when they were drawn at the pre-season meeting.
It could have been read incorrectly, as teams where playing Thursday and Friday.
To avoid any more confusion and so it reads correct.
All dates will read Friday on the MB system, but some will play on the Thursday on the same week.
To help accomodate teams and club greens.
It shows correct on the allbutacross Frodsham Competition page.
Remember any team NOT playing and losing in Fred Rogers Cup will not be entered into the Alf Jones Cup.
The Frodsham league is going to use the MB system again this season.
The team codes for the Frodsham League this season are the same as last season.
Any problems, please email me or if it’s more serious, please chase John B 731034.
Hope you enjoy your season.
