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.

Many knockout competitions are approaching finals days and nights, so please be aware of when your respective competitions will conclude.
All individual comps are the best of 7 frames in the early rounds, except for the Singles Shield, which is best of 5. Doubles matches are best of 5 frames.
Once again this month there is varying deadline dates for some competitions, so please check carefully.

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

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.

From the next league meeting on May 4, you will be given the opportunity to submit proposals for July’s AGM. You will have until June’s league meeting to get your thoughts and ideas to the League Secretary.

Please display the Bristol Pool League rule sheet near the match table of your team’s home venue. If there is a need to refer to them during a game, the rule sheet should be available for quick reference. For any further clarification please contact a committee who will be able to assist.

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.
