the Monday night slot on a big pitch at The Grandstand, and asked whether I could bring the game under GIFFA.
As this is an existing game, with several players who play in our games at The Grandstand at the weekends, I'm ok with adding it to the GIFFA Schedule. The GIFFA System and the GIFFA Playing Rules & Principles will apply.
As there is hardly any overlap between the players who play at The Grandstand and those who play at East Coast, it should not affect the Monday night game at East Coast. The two games will have separate schedule threads.
I will start on 6 January 2014, after The Premier Pitch @ The Grandstand re-opens after refurbishment.
With two games on Monday night, I hope that those who are keen on the Monday night game at The Grandstand will make an effort to get enough players. If both games are slow to fill up, my focus will remain on the East Coast game, as it is currently the only game at East Coast each week.
I put up threads for 6 and 13 January 2014.
We had only 2 players for 6 January 2014, so it was cancelled. The East Coast game went ahead as usual on 6 January 2014. For 13 January 2014, we got to 5. As I couldn't fill the East Coast game for 13 January 2014, I tried to fill The Grandstand game instead, but with withdrawals, we were stuck on 5, so The Grandstand game was cancelled as well.
For next Monday (20 January 2014), Brendan has asked for the pitch at The Grandstand, so I'll transfer the booking to him and I won't schedule a game there next Monday.
I don't see the Monday night game at The Grandstand taking off until well after Chinese New Year (31 January and 1 February 2014). I will nevertheless schedule the game every week at least until the end of February 2014, unless one of the regulars asks for the pitch from me before the schedule thread goes up on the Wednesday morning.
Until this game takes off, I will not have the usual restrictions on putting names down for others. This has been stated in both threads so far, and in future threads.
