The Captains Kick off Meeting for Songkran season 2019 was held at Pavillion Sports Bar. Most teams were represented
Fees were paid If you are still un-financial please attend to that.

RULES Captains are asked to be familiar with SSPL Definitions and Rules - 2019 SongkranSpecifically, changes to scoring for the season was agreed. i.e For Monday matches, as a trial, it was agreed to change the match scoring so an equal number of games played could allow for a draw.

8 Ball games are now 20 games (1 more) in unscored sets so only games won count for the match win and the ladder. Monday Mixed is now 22 games (1 less) where scored the best of 14 set points still decide the winner and where games win rate separates the ladder positions where matches won points are equal

For all Monday matches points awarded are now 2 for a win 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss. Wednesday 9 Ball remains unchanged with the winner being the first to 17 games won for 1 match point

FAIR PLAY A discussion about continuing play decided there the rules were adequate to ensure players qualification for matches so a reasonable balance of skill and harmony is always maintained.

Concerns were noted about team stacking with higher grade players for finals and cup matches and it was agreed by all present that this would not be acceptable in the future.

Here are the relevant rules:

TEAM MAKEUP.  A team must have 4 players of a average grade consistent with the competition level. 
CONTINUING PLAYER In the last three rounds of the League season or Cup Knockout competitions, new players who have not played in at least 3 league competition rounds prior, cannot be introduced  
CERROS was discussed and it was stated that even though it is home team scores that are entered a Captain can delegate posting to CERROS to anyone as long as both captains verify it by 10am the next day. The scoresheet picture posted to LINE Captain Forum is still required as a signed off verification reference

FIXTURES: Here is a list of teams for the season including contacts. The Wall fixtures will be printed once all Logo and Sponsor information is complete. In the meantime, the web is updated and should be referred to and used for all resources. E.g Scoresheets etc
