Section B teams - Fox Barrington

Regrettably, Fox Barrington have informed us that they unable to raise sufficient players to commit to the current season and have therefore asked to stand down.
Unfortunately this will result in a BYE in section B.
We thank them for their past commitment and hospitality and hope that, in the future, a new team may rise from the ashes.
No games having been played, no score corrections are necessary.The appropriate tweaks have been made and a new Fixtures list (v3) is available for download if required.

A trophy, 'Winner' and 'Runner-up' medals will be issued subject to adequate response.
Update to AGM - THIS IS OPEN TO ALL GENDERS.
The heats will take place on Sunday August 12th. More details when we have a better feel for numbers.
Applications are via email or telephone for this year and the closing date is July 1st. Spread the word and get those entries in.

Data Protection changes
16th Mar 2018
 
On May 25th, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. This will affect the way that data is held on individuals. For companies and large organisations the
compliance procedures are well documented, but for small 'social clubs' like us, not quite so easy to determine.
However, at this stage, we're taking some proactive steps.
The web site has been upgraded to a protection system similar to those you'd see when say making a purchase on-line. The page address now begins 'https://' rather than 'http://
The extra 's' and the green padlock are symbols of added security.
The only personal data we collect is :-
 
  • Player names - in order to be able to display team and individual scores.
 
 
  • Team captain's name, tel and email for communication purposes.
 
Historically we've asked permission to publish the latter so that you can contact each other. (Attempting contact via the venue/pub is rarely effective).
Now we're going to ask permission do that at each annual team registration.
The registration form will be modified shortly and any team who has already registered will receive an email requesting permission to display their details (which is currently suppressed).
Next year, all permissions will be gathered via the registration form.
It may ultimately prove necessary to have a password protected page for team captain contacts.
