News and Views: 2016–17 Season – Plate Final and AGM – 26 September 2017

I can happily report that all went mostly to plan at the AGM and Plate Final on Tuesday this week, especially once we managed to get into the room when others in there had finished their dinner!

The Plate Final was very entertaining, the result being:

Waters Green Rams 110 69 British Flag

Well done to both teams and many thanks to Haydn and Alice for asking the questions along with the Nags Head and Sutton Mutton for setting them – special mention to Billy Stubbs for all his efforts.

AGM–wise, all the various League "officials" are carrying on and you'll see on Tuesday how the Leagues are going to be arranged for this year.

We have lost a couple of teams and have 24 teams in total now, so we will have 8 teams in each of the A, B and C Leagues.

Subs remain the same too at 50 per team, no increase again this year.

What happens now?

I will now sit down and look like I know what I'm doing (a bit like David Davis does ...) and sort out the fixtures ...

Information packs (fixtures, rules, etc.) can be collected – and the 50 subs paid – from the Weaver next Tuesday 3 October.

I will be there from 6.30pm to 8pm or thereabouts on that date, hopefully along with Marshall Barnard who will issue the usual receipts etc.

We will then play the first games of the season one week later – Tuesday 10 October.

Question Setters

Week 1 questions – i.e. the 10th of October will be done in their entirety by the Ox–fford.

Week 2 (17th of October) the Specialist Questions will be set by the Sutton Mutton ... and that is as far as we've got so far!

I've got other volunteers for later weeks of the season and all will be revealed by next Tuesday.

I will of course email everything out once it is done.
