Check for team changes in your Division


This year’s Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday July 20 at a venue to be confirmed. All AGM proposals must be submitted in writing to the Secretary no later than the June league meeting and will be available for collection at the July meeting. All proposals must be seconded and either the proposer or seconder must be present at the AGM in order for the AGM to accept the proposal.

Registration forms for next season will be available from next month’s meeting, and should be returned no later than August’s league meeting.

The month of May is when our more senior players have their chance to shine. For the next three weeks the Mechanics Arms will host the Over 40s and Seniors comps. Details of the draw and dates are now online.

The Wednesday league season will shortly conclude with the new end of season play offs. Division’s 2-5 teams that finish in positions 3-6 will meet in Semi finals and Final, with the winners taking 3rd place and promotion.

Entry forms for the Three Person team event will be available from next month.

Please make every effort to submit your scorecards, as losing valuable points at this late stage of the season can result in lost prize money and possible trophies. There are two ways of submitting cards, at the league meetings and via email once your annual subs have been fully paid, so there is no excuse for forgetting.
Several teams have already been penalised by this rule earlier in the season, and just because we are at this important time of the season, doesn’t make any difference to the decision making.

Both the semi-finals and final of the Sunday League Cup and Divisional Cup are held at the Three Crowns, as are the semi-finals and finals of the Wednesday Divisional Cup.

Please use the BPL website wherever possible, as it provides up to date info, and league documents for you to download. This will save the league money in postage and printing costs etc. Do not hesitate to contact the Website author if you think you have spotted a mistake.

Please make every effort to attend League meetings to submit your physical scorecards and subscriptions, as losing valuable points could be costly in the long run. Failure to attend regularly could mean expulsion from the league. Meetings are held between 7.00 and 8.30pm on the first Thursday of every month at the Pied Horse.

In an attempt to reduce our overheads, we have introduced an Email Information Service to provide members with monthly updates.
To help reduce costs, we would like members to subscribe to this Service. The email attachment will be identical to the book that team Captains/Secretaries have previously received by post, and will be available to all league members, not just Captains/Secretaries.
We fully understand that not everyone has access to the internet and email, so for those few teams the book will still be available by post.
Apart from the cost reduction, other advantages will be that the book will be available just a few days after the monthly league meeting, rather than the 11 days it now takes. Any mistakes that arise can be instantly corrected by sending a revised book. Any other information can be easily sent, eg, reminders of important dates such as league meetings and AGM's.
To add your name to the Service, simply send an email to bristolpoolleague(at)btinternet.com
Please include the word “Pool” in the subject line, and in the message box leave your name, team name(s), and whether you are Captain or Secretary of your team, or that you are just a playing member of your team(s). You will receive an email shortly after to confirm your inclusion in the Service.
