I will stick with ... using a single thread for the Sunday game(s) but indicating "4 or 5 pm" to allow players to state if they are available for both, either, or only one. If by Friday, it looks like there will only be enough for one game, the 4 to 5 pm game will be cancelled.
* 4 to 5 pm
* 5 to 6 pm
[red]Please indicate if you can play either, both or only a specific one (4 to 5 pm or 5 to 6pm).[/red]
Priority & Numbers
[green]We can go up to 32.[/green] We will have two games if we get up to 28 (with those available for both games counting as 2). [green]If we have less than 28, only the 5 to 6 pm game will go ahead, with the first 16 available for that game.[/green]
If there are two games, those who put their names down for both can only be in reserve for the 5 to 6 pm game.
[Premier Pitch @ Turf City] say that with the new head tenant, their rental will go up 350% from March 2012. Not only have the Turf City people increased their prices but they have reduced some of the small discounts I get for bulk booking and paying in advance. Their prices to me have gone up by 20 to 28%.
With effect from 1 March 2012, I have to put up the price for games at Turf City by $2 per player. That's a 17% increase for the Saturday game and an 18% increase for the Sunday game, a lower percentage increase than Turf City's increase to me.
That will be $14 per player for the Saturday game and $13 per player for the Sunday game (with effect from March 2012).
There will be new pitches at Turf City over the next two to three months, which will be cheaper, but they will be uncovered, so they may not be suitable for afternoon/evening games at the weekend.
[red]$13 for Sunday.[/red]
Modes of payment are set out under the "Current balances & payment information" thread on the "Payment Information" board" under the "Administration & Overview" category.

Withdrawals & Cancellations
If a player withdraws, any prepayment will remain to his credit. However, there will be a penalty of between $1 and $4 for withdrawals less than 6 hours before the game, the later the withdrawal, the greater the penalty. If a player does not withdraw and I am unaware that the player failed to turn up, the full price will be deducted. The amount will be reduced if I am informed, and an explanation provided.
The game may be cancelled due to lack of numbers or for any other good reason. 24 hours notice will usually be given for cancellations, but it may be less for reasons beyond my control.
System, Rules & Principles
Please read the General Information and Playing Rules & Principles posts first. Your participation in our games depends on it.
Line Ups, Punctuality & Previous Games
Proposed line ups will be put up a few hours before the game. If there are an odd number of players, the proposed line ups may be delayed until we have an even number of players.
Those playing, please be early, to warm up and meet the other players. Even though a specific colour may be assigned to each player before the game, please bring both a white top and a red top.
If you have played over the past week, please add your comment on the report thread. Comments will be taken into account in future line ups.
