Please e-mail Brian Davison [email@example.com] or telephone 0113 258 9824 if you would like a copy.
Please note this minute of a decision of the Yorkshire League committee on 17 December 2016:
With effect from 8 January 2017, if a team infringes Yorkshire League Rule 23 by using an
out-of-date version of the result sheet, they will be liable to a penalty of one Victory Point.
So make sure you use an up-to-date results form, (Rev 2.1 18/09/2014.)
It should have Stuart Davies' address on it, and his current e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is intended to continue the existing results service on the YCBA website for the foreseeable future,
so please don't forget to e-mail to Lesley Blanchard on the day as usual
If you are sending your result by e-mail, it would be very helpful if you would give the result in the body of the message as well.
(Most captains do this anyway) eg Wakefield C vs Garforth B, Wakefield won by 14 - 6.
It all helps to speed up the process of updating the website on the Sunday evening
These are usually referred to as "Winning Draws," but the full name gives a clue as to their significance.
If two teams draw their match 10-10 and at the end of the season they also draw for final position in the division,
the imp difference in their drawn match is used to decide which of them should have the higher rank, and may be
crucial for promotion or relegation.
Captains should make sure that the team with more imps is recorded on the result sheet;
don't just put "draw"
It was agreed at the 2015 AGM that 2:00 pm would continue to be the default starting time for matches.
However, clubs are at liberty to arrange an earlier starting time for a match if this is agreeable to both sides.
It is hoped that clubs will do their best to accommodate such requests on a case by case basis.
Also agreed at the 2015 AGM that clubs shall have the right to use pre-duplimated boards in all divisions and should indicate to their opponents when they intend to do the duplimating.
If the visitors wish to send an observer on the day when the duplimating is done, they must give seven days notice.
Entering Results on the EBU website
(and reporting them to YCBA)
The EBU have moved the League Results service to the new MyEBU pages;
so to enter results team captains will need to log onto:
After logging on the league result pages are accessed via the Utilites tab.
Clubs are asked to enter their team members & results on the EBU website
This will take care of issues such as Yorkshire's P2P obligations, Masterpoint awards, and
(in the fullness of time,) National Grading Information. Clubs may appoint a secretary
to enter the data for all their teams, or delegate the task to individual team captains
You may leave the data entry until the end of the season if you wish, but it is strongly
recommended that you update your results match by match
If you do not already do so, please retain copies of your results sheets on file
It is intended to continue the existing results service on the YCBA website for the forseeable future,
so please don't forget to e-mail or telephone your VP score to Rob Turner on the day as usual
