Will all clubs note that the Management Committee have agreed to cancel all matches due to be played on Monday 16th April 2018 and reschedule these to be played on Monday 18th June (this was originally a free week). This decision has been taken following a number of clubs concerned their greens may not be ready due to the terrible weather over the past few weeks. Please make sure your players are aware of this change.
At the AGM on 24th October 2017 it was unanimously agreed to add the following amendment to Rule 30(b):

As a result of a proposal at the AGM and the unanimous vote for the motion, clubs need to be aware that they are now required to input the result of Charity Cup games onto the web site. The cards no longer need to be taken on the night to Headquarters. The onus for inputting the results lies with the hosting club (the club where the games are played at). The hosting club will be issued with a card defining the process on how to input the data, and this will also include the password to be used.
The L&DBA Secretary suggests that all clubs who have offered their green for use in the Charity Cups, should make themselves aware of the site sooner rather than later to best understand what their requirement is.
The draw for the 2017 Champion of Champions has been made, with the first round of matches to be played by 19th June. Last years Champion, James Alcock has a tough opener in this years campaign, being drawn against Dave Griffin of Queens Park.
