||As I am sure you are all aware the league is running behind its original planned finish date, this is for a couple of reasons first and foremost it is MY error for not accounting for the weeks where Yarmouth events were taking place. So this has put the league back by a couple of weeks. This coupled with the fact many of us have jobs which require travel or shift work, we have children and many other aspects of life which has led to a large number of cancellations and Thursdays that players have not been able to make it.
Having looked at the total amount of remaining games we will be looking at finishing the league at the end of July 25th to be exact. I would like to finish the league with a full night up lanterns and would appreciate it if we can get a full roster of games on 25th July.
The play off will take place on 1st August and we will confirm the next league start date closer to the time.
I know this is not ideal but it is a combination of events. Next season the Yarmouth weeks will be taken out of the schedule along with the addition of catch up weeks (something Ben H did put into the diary).
Should anyone disagree or have alternative suggestions please do not hesitate to let me know.

||FORMAT - All matches will be best of 12 frames. However, the match ENDS if a player reaches 7.
3 points for every win and 1 point for a draw.
Every player will have to pay £3.00 subs per match. If a player is running late it is their responsibility to make contact with the opponent and also Sean Bell. Should this NOT happen a 1 frame penalty per 10 minutes of lateness will be enforced upto a maximum of four frames before a 7-0 win is awarded to the attending player.
If you play your match on any night other than a Thursday, you will be charged for the table light as well as the usual £3 subs. The tables are reserved for this league every Thursday for 5+ hours, it is unfair on Lanterns to do this and then people play their matches on another night.
No games can be played in advance unless agreed by Sean Bell.
Please start early matches at 7:30pm sharp
Players on the same points will be separated by the best frame win/loss percentage.
Prize ladder is based on everybody paying their subs and entry fee so don't try and dodge paying please.
£60 to be paid in to LLOYDS account. Sort code : 77-63-25 and Account number: 71763368, put your name as the reference please by 10th January 2019. No extensions on entry fee - You can also pay your entry fee in Cash to either Sean Bell Or Darren/Ingrid at Lanterns.
I don't want to issue any penalties for cancelled matches however, there will be a penalty of -1, then -3 for those who are continually abusing the goodwill of their opponents. No penalties will be imposed until after a formal warning has been given.
The 7:30pm matches will be drawn on the night by the players. Both players must be present when drawing a table.
The late fixtures the same, unless table in use and less fixtures. Then only available tables should be drawn to save time.
If anyone drops out of the league the suspension is 2 seasons long and all entry fee and subs must be paid up front upon return and for all future seasons.
Can all players download the "Whatsapp" app to their phone if you don't have it. I will then add you to the group. We have a results and updates group. It is an easier way to let everyone know of changes. And it's free and tells me if you have read it. I will post updates on the website promptly so if you decide not to join the group please check the website regularly.
The fixture list is purely a guide and may change week to week to accommodate holidays and catchups. Games may be brought forward so always let me know before Tuesday if you are unavailable on the Thursday, even if you have a bye scheduled. You may also be required to play two on a night. This is compulsory if another date can't be agreed between players
Consistent slow players will be put on the late game to avoid delays. NO MOBILE PHONES TO BE USED DURING MATCHES.
NO CIGARETTE BREAKS DURING MATCHES AS IT HOLDS UP PLAY ON A TIGHT SCHEDULE
Please discuss with me if you are unhappy with anything and I will do my best to accommodate.
