This page will be used to answer the membership's most frequently asked questions.
If you have a question that's not covered here, then why not send it in.
 
1. Claiming a game
 
Q. If the opposing team are late or don't turn up - can we claim the first leg or the game ?
 
A. There is no automatic right to claim anything. Report the facts to the Secretary and any appropriate action will be taken at the next Committee meeting.
 
2. Cancelled games
 
Q. So what happens if a game is cancelled?
 
A. It is the responsibility of the cancelling team's captain to :-
  a) Inform the Secretary immediately
  b) To agree a replay date with the opposing captain within 14 days of the cancellation and inform the Secretary.
The match does not have to be played within 14 days, unless it is the last game of the season.
 
3. Unplayed games
 
Q. So what if the game can't be re-arranged or is cancelled a second time?
 
A. Based on the circumstances, the Committee will adjudicate against the offender. The other team will be awarded 3 legs and average dolls.
If the cancellation occurs during the first half of the season, the doll average is not added until week 9.
If circumstances dictate it, a 0-0 nullment is also a possible outcome.
Awarded dolls are 'team dolls' and are not allocated to individual players.
 
4. Caller
 
Q. Does the caller have to be playing in the current game?
 
A. No, the caller can be anyone from the team. They may however only score one leg of the match. (This does not apply to the beer leg)
 
5. Tossing
 
Q. Do I need to toss for a 3 sticker or a 1 sticker?
 
A. Yes, every time including competitions.
 
6. A Clean Doll
 
Q. So what constitutes a clean doll ?
 
A. Once thrown, the stick must contact the doll before anything else (including tree branches!). The doll must fall off and hit the floor.
 
7. Calling
 
Q. So how should I call ?
 
A. Clearly call a doll so that it can be heard by the thrower - you should call "Doll" or "1" "2" "3" etc, then call the thrower's total at the end.
THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT TO CALL AN IRON
If you're having difficulty deciding if it was a doll - give it .
 
8. Getting the latest web page info
 
Q. When I visit a particular web page, I don't always see the latest version. Why is this?
 
A. Web browsers save a 'local copy' of pages you've visited and it may be that your browser is showing you what it saved on your last visit rather than what
is current. Refresh the page (press F5 on a PC) and you should see the current info.
On tablets or smart phones, tap the icon shown below, which is positioned somewhere near the adddress bar of your browser.
