3.11 Any club entering more than one team may promote players from one team to another although such players may have already played in the current competition for the lower team with which they were first registered. Under no circumstances can a player be relegated from a team with which they were first registered even though they have not played in the competition with that team or from a team to which they have been promoted. The penalty for default under this rule will be to have the player’s score deleted and their opponent’s score to read 21 0. The Club may also be fined up to £5.00 at the Special Council’s discretion.
FROM TARPORLEY BC
The housing development is drawing to a close, but is most unlikely to be finished for the start of the season. The car park is still closed and there is no direct pedestrian access to the green from the old car park.
As per last season access will be via the public footpath which runs parallel to the old legion driveway. At the top there are metal gates which we control to allow bowlers onto the site.
We will of course let clubs know when this situation is resolved.
Car parking is allowed unrestricted on the high street after 6pm.
Away bowlers can use the Crown Hotel car park (to the back please as the front spaces are reserved for residents).
Thank you all in advance for your cooperation, both with last season and the coming one.
Clive Wilson (Secretary Tarporley BC)
