They are not reporting issues and therefore disciplinaries are down. Umpires don’t like the law 42 scenario and propose they go back to previous disciplinary system. Will stop umpires having to give decisions on the spot and take away the on-field penalties. Invitation- Seeing disciplinaries on a weekly basis, inconsistent in their decisions. Finals day on the 2nd September at Preston Nomads CC.
East – Mid – Couple of disciplinaries issues as well. Two resignations: Dave Parsons, Mike Newcombe? Withdrawn: Turners Hill CC, can’t get a team out. Playing Conditions: Currently 26 teams in the conference, they meet up in January to discuss rules and regulations and pick and choose their fixtures.
Discussion on making the conference work on a short-term basis i.e. booking in a fixture the week before. Survey – Proposed action: Top teams have the split season, division 3 – 7 will go to a vote at the next AGM. While divisions 8 and down will be playing win/lose cricket. Main concern being whether we would lose more players by getting rid of declaration cricket higher up in the divisions than we would gain by making it all win/lose.
People who play declaration cricket wanted: a winning draw, bowling restrictions and an earlier start time. Balls and Sponsorship: 6000 Balls needed – debating who to go with in terms of Gray-Nicholls, Newberry and Lords?Keith to have a meeting with Smile group travel about sponsorshipDan to have a discussion with Chain IQ about sponsorshipIssued raised of whether two balls are needed in the lower divisions fixtures.Constitution working group:Instead of losing all four vice you only lose a couple?3 years for a chairman?Facilitate bonus points – add them in to the constitution?512?
