The Beast from the East: Well finally the weather has arrived over the past couple of days. According to the met office the forecast for tomorrow and Friday is not good with Saturday being milder, however we encourage all clubs to be responsible and listen to the local weather forecasts and think how frozen is the ground, how much snow is compacted on the ground and will it thaw with one mild morning. The last weekend of the season will, at this point, be Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th April, these are in addition to the slip dates on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March. Should games be postponed this weekend and you are the home club make sure you contact your umpires (particularly if you receive pool appointed umpires), your opposition, your League Manager and your tea makers!! When you re-arrange the games again make sure you ensure umpires are available if you receive pool appointed umpires (give loads of notice!!), confirm with your opposition and update the venues/time section on this website. Lets hope it warms up soon.
