2015 Constitution (to come)
Explanation of ByLaw 5 amendment to the constitution
( permits a team to play 6 games with only 5 players )
Note: Div 1 will play billiards to a total not a time limit this year.
Players will play to 250 (player with the higher handicap will only play to 250,
the other player will play to 250 plus the handicap difference).
Example: Player A has a billiards handicap of +20, Player B has a handicap of -20. The handicap difference is +40
Player A will attempt to play to 250, Player B will attempt to play to 290. The first to reach their target wins the points.
We will have a team captain meeting on Sunday 12th April at Rooty Hill RSL (7:00pm)
at the end of week 5 to review handicaps to make sure we don't have too many discrepancies.
Bear in mind the 3rd div has byes so each team will have played only 4 matches and 1st div are not playing billiards to a clock.
All clubs are expected to send representatives!
