The Province competition rules require score cards to be completed correctly and then signed by both skips. Sadly this is not always happening at the moment making the east and west match secretaries’ task of collating and recording scores unnecessarily tedious and difficult. I am sure you will appreciate that it is unreasonable to make their task as willing volunteers more difficult than it should be. I would ask all Province skips, therefore, to impress upon their team members, particularly those playing two, the requirement to carry out the necessary task of completing the score card correctly. Sadly, if this heartfelt plea should go unheeded, then the Executive Committee will have no option after the 29th November but to invoke the rules and penalise offenders.

I hope this letter will be taken in the spirit in which it is intended, namely, to support our hard working match secretaries.

With best wishes,

Mike Pickthall Province Secretary
