OMYA CUP QUALIFIERS / BOB McCARTIN CUP

A REMINDER that this year the OMYA Cup Scratch Individual competition was a bonus entry with the team registration fees so everyone is eligible to play in it providing they are signed on from the outset.

There is a week set aside (w/c September 26) to get the competition underway before the first of the team matches gets into gear and then the semi finals or finals (depending on the number of players registered) must be played before the next meeting on Wednesday November 2nd which will be at Jaxx Q Club, Belper (7.45pm).

Also the other competition entries and monies will need to be in by then too, the entry forms will go out with the fixture grids et al. It is strongly advised that players enter a few competitions this season to reduce the number of blank weeks as we currently have a few "bye" weeks in the league schedule due to PJ'z No 2 being unable to raise a team. 

Also any team who comes up with 2 or more entries in all competitions (including Shootout Night) will get free registration of reserves next season so will just pay the flat registration fee. Note that 1 pair counts as 1 entry for this purpose.

Going back to the OMYA Cup, please remember this is the only competition that will be run off SCRATCH for all players this season and will firstly be played in house amongst each team to produce 1 representative each going into the main draw in November. Any player who doesn't want to play should let his opponent know ASAP and then they can move on to the next round or even bring the match forward if possible.

Due to the prospect of some absenteeism, I'll not put the draw on the results website until the 1st round proper, but this is the qualifying draw and provisional dates sorted per team:

ALL MATCHES ARE BEST OF 3 IN QUALIFICATION STAGES
Please feel free to bring forward any matches time or date-wise (utilise any walkovers) in order to meet deadline!

As a late entrant hopefully the team can either organise a mini tournament amongst themselves or nominate a player before the meeting on 2/11/11.

As the bye week has provisionally been filled, some OMYA Cup dates will need to be shifted from those on the original drawsheet, please find a convenient slot if affected.

The opening team matches will be week commencing October 3rd with the first group phases of the Bob McCartin Six Red Cup competition followed by the league proper the following week.

Just to confirm, the Bob McCartin Cup will be played over 7 frames per match with 4 singles frames and 3 scotch doubles (alternate shots). And of course six reds per frame. Half of usual handicaps to apply.


Each player is limited to 1 singles match and 2 doubles matches per night (same pairing cannot be used twice).

The top 2 teams will qualify from each group with the 2 best third placed teams.
