Eliminated from the Longman Cup by Harwell-Eynsham

Deirdre Cochrane, Brian Jamieson, Claire King and Steve Fisher made up the team that were eliminated 6-1 by Harwell-Eynsham. Claire, playing in her first match, with Brian won the doubles match in the morning. Unfortunately this was the only success. The games were only lost by a small margin – but they were lost. This means that Harwell-Eynsham will play either Swindon or Bristol in the next round. Follow it at Longman 2021

Charity one-ball 2021

The winner from each day will go along to the finals in Surbiton. These will be determined by reference to wins, who beat whom and then points scored.

All games are played to handicap. There is a chart for adjusting AC handicaps in the CA tournament regulations, subject to a maximum of 20 for 1-ball. For a game we then calculate the difference and divide by three, rounding to the nearest half bisque.

New Competitions Menu

The “Results” menu has been renamed to “Competitions” as it now allows you to sign up for a competition, see who is signed up, to record your individual results and to see the current status of a competition.

As events become ready they will be added to the menu. Currently you can sign up on line for the GC Championship Cup and the Icknield Cup. Just select the event and click on subscribe – and that’s it.

At the top of the “Competitions” page you will see a list of what you are currently signup for.

The AC and GC ladders are now both live. The GC one continues from last year and the AC one has been restarted.

If you have any problems with the system please email me individually at dr.s.m.fisher@gmail.com.

GC Icknield Cup 2021

In each group everyone should arrange to play everyone else in a best of three level play 13 point games. You will normally need to allow 2 – 2.5 hours to be sure of  enough time to play three games.  As finding a time to play may not always be easy, when booking please title as a Championship match and be prepared to accept another pair playing Icknield or Championship to double bank. You must use the old extra turn handicapping system. Each game must be played with the handicap you had at the beginning of your best of three match.

The group results will be decided by
– who wins the most matches
– hoop differences
– who beat whom
– a penalty shoot out – boundary to hoop 1

The winners of the three groups will go on to the semi-finals as will the closest runner-up. The closest runner-up is the player who comes closest to the winner in the decision list above.

If the closest runner-up is from the A group, then  A1 plays B1,  A2 plays C1 in the semi-finals, if from the B group B1 plays C1 and B2 plays A1 and if from the C group C1 plays A1 ans C2 plays B1.

Please enter your results below carefully. If you make a mistake please contact Steve Fisher to have the result removed. For two of the three blocks it will say: “Sorry you are not competing in this event” so just find your block.

GC Ladder 2021

This is a continuation of the ladder started last year

A player on the ladder may challenge any player above them. A player not yet on the ladder may challenge anyone who is on the ladder or anyone who is not.

Either player can enter the result. The ladder will then be updated automatically. If the challenger wins he takes the ladder position of the loser’s position and all below move down one place. If a game is entered between two players not yet on the ladder they are added at the bottom with the winner first.

A player on the ladder may challenge any player above them. A player not yet on the ladder may challenge anyone who is on the ladder or anyone who is not. If your name is not on the ladder please email Steve Fisher. David Vincent should be taking this job over shortly.

Instructions

The challenge is resolved by a single 13 point level play game. After the game:

Whatever the result both players must enter it on their handicap card using the level play table to determine index changes.

When a challenge is made the game should normally be played within one week. The challenger should offer a reasonable number of time-slots. If the person challenged cannot play within a week without good reason (holiday, illness etc) they should be prepared to concede the game to the challenger (entering a notional score of 1-0) which affects the ladder – but there is no record to be added to the handicap card.

AC Ladder 2021

All games in whatever format count on the ladder, whether full or shortened games, played to handicap or advanced rules, as well as 1-ball games. All club members are invited to get involved.

You may challenge any club member to a game, regardless of whether they are on the ladder already or are yet to play their first game. Games should ideally be arranged and played within a week of a challenge being issued.

Your initial ladder ranking points are set to 100, and you gain a point for winning a game and drop a point for losing. This means the ladder should remain balanced if some players play more games with other playing less. Your ladder position is determined by ladder ranking points.

Use of the website

All our members are registered for the website. Some make heavy use of it some very little as is to be expected. I thought that rather than writing a long report for the AGM I would post a news item with most of what I wanted to say.

Joe King, David Long, Paul Wolff and I have written most “posts”. Posts are typically news items.

Nick Butler and Peter Allan are the only two non-committee members who have written anything – though any member is able to submit a news item (after logging in of course).

Twelve of our members have logged in at least once during the last week and a further nine members have logged in over the last month.

Eight of our members have never logged in – and therefore never made a court booking. They have also been unable to see the information that is only available to members – such as the results page.

About a month ago I set up monitoring for the website to see how it is used. I have done some grouping to give the following table.
