Also Kev did say that this season, all teams must now use red and yellow matchballs only, however venues which have RED cloth can use blue and yellow matchballs

  Dave Baker has decided to stand down from the committee. Dave has served the Sunday Pool League committee since the day it started and was given a warm and appreciative round of applause from all playing members that attended the meeting. It has been decided that Dave will continue as an honorary committee member with the freedom to join in meetings where it is possible.
I personally would like to thank Dave for all his support, hard work and honest opinions that he contributed to all meetings and wish him all the best for the futures. Cheers Mr Dave Baker It's been an honour.

This means that committee members are needed. Three people have offered their services which was all accepted. They are-
Simon Davies (Institute SC)
Gaz Bryant (Joiners Arms)
Les Murphy (Star & Garter)

Two proposals were brought up at the meeting
1. Stopwatch - after much discussion it was voted against with 5 votes for and 12 votes against
2. 'Lag for break' - instead of toss of coin for alternate breaks, it was proposed that lag for break would be another alternative. Again after discussion it was unanimously voted in and will be in affect as from the start of the Winter Season 2017/18.

Presentation evening will be held at Kennys on Friday 1st December 2017
