Please see below the playing times for the above championships. As usual we start
with the Ladies Harry Carver Team Competition on Tuesday 23rd April and the individual
competitions will start Wednesday 24thApril. There will be four three hourly sessions
on days 1 and 2 for the individual competitions and five sessions of two and a half
hours on days 3, and 4 with at least one on the Sunday prior to the Derbyshire Final
.The Eversley was played on Sunday 14th April. Unfortunately this will mean all triples
matches are played on the first two days but it is the only way that we can avoid
duplications and fit in the matches to be played by those bowlers who have qualified
in two, three, four or five competitions. Every effort has been made to avoid duplications,
however, should there be one which affects the schedule, it may be necessary to bring
in a very late session. It follows that some of you will have to play continuously
if you keep winning and I hope those affected appreciate the problem.
In view of this, if you have not already notified me of any substitutes, please do
not nominate anyone who is already playing in another competition if it affects the
will commence each day at 9.30 in the individual events.

administration of the competition, markers in singles and skips in pairs and rinks

the start of each match and to return cards to the office immediately on completion.
