Here are some Website stats for you to ponder  >>>  Website Stats

Corona Virus:- 

The PDSL has suspended all League, Cup, Plate & Nomination Games  with immediate effect.  (8pm Monday 16th March)

Once the ALL CLEAR has been given by the government the PDSL will hold a Committee meeting to determine what options are open to us.  Then a Extraordinary Full meeting will be called to vote on these options.

It may be that some businesses / Pubs / Clubs will not survive this prolonged closure and some teams may move alleys or fold altogether.  But we hope for the best.        Be well, stay safe.


What are we going to do when this is all over.... ?
To be honest I'm not really sure, but whatever decision we come to it will be in the best interest of the members/teams. 

Option A
Restart the league & Cups where we left off, continuing the 2019-2020 season to it's conclusion whenever that may be.   Then have a Extra-ordinary AGM to decide what to do about the 2020-2021 season.

Option B
Void this season now.  No promotions/relegations and start again next season.  This again will depend on when we restart.

Option C
Count season as complete and calculate an average points score for teams that had postponed games, then adjust the tables accordingly and promote/relegate as normal.  This we could do now and then start a new season when we are allowed.          Option C -  Tables (recalculated Home & Away averages)

Option D
Any other ideas from you the members !?

Personally I prefer option A.

Inter League Charity Competition

please call Graham Whittock on 01761 434904.

Skittles Evolution:-  Cups !

One proposal is to keep the K.O. Cup open to All Teams.  

Keep the format 'as is'   However once you lose you are out, there will be no dropping in to the Plate !

Nomination CupDiv 1 & 2 only (32 teams)

Maurice Ladd Plate - Div 3 to 6 only (64 teams)  This will now be a competition in it's own right.

 (Maybe make this a Front Pin First competition ?!)

This proposal was debated long and hard and it is fair to say not all committee members were in favour.

So this proposal will be put to members at the AGM.  If rejected we will stay with the status quo.

At present 85% of league fees + website profits go to league funds.  15% of league fees go to charities.

I propose that 85% of league fees go to league funds and 15% of league fees + website profits go to charities.

We can achieve this by slightly lowering the prize money. First £250, 2nd £180, 3rd £130 for all league and cup prizes, as you can see it's not much of a reduction but we would be putting £250 - £300 extra into the charity pot for good causes each season.
