The League have been informed that following a long illness Clifford Sykes of Hillhouse and Birkby BC passed away on Friday night the 16th February. We wish to express our condolences to his family and friends in this sad time. We will publish the funeral arrangements when we have been advised.

Old handbooks

We would like to thank very much indeed DAVE MOORE from Paddock Con for giving us his collection of the last 40 years of handbooks when we recently met in a vets game there, of which there were some that we didn't have.

If there is anyone out there who might have handbooks pre 1975 we would be very grateful for these.

Competitions Secretary Holiday

The Competitions Secretary (Rod Taylor) will be on holiday from 8th ? 19th February. Any Competition results submitted via the website will be dealt with in the usual manner.

Contacting opponents in competitions

This is easily possible using the web site. Navigate to Competitions >> The Draw, results, dates etc. Then select the competition you want to check. Then locate the opponent you are drawn against: move the mouse pointer to the opponent, or touch the opponent if you are using a touch screen: that will bring up a small box with your opponent's email and/or phone number.

Submitting and changing results

There have been several instances lately of teams not being able to submit results because the member that enters results is unavailable. THIS CAN BE DONE BY SOMEONE ELSE. Team logins can have several registrations to a team (as opposed to club logins). Provided you have an email address that you can use, go to the team login page and click Register, then follow on screen instructions.

There have also been a few instances where the entered result contains a mistake. THIS CAN BE CORRECTED by logging in and going to the result card page in exactly the same way as the result was originally submitted. When the match date is selected you will see the form completed with the information originally entered. Then change and data that is wrong, click 'Check your results' card, then click 'Send the results to HBSA'.

Email address changes

If you have changed your email address we can easily change all instances of it on our system. Simply use the Contact Us Page and supply us with the old email address and the new email address and we will change all instances from the old to the new. This includes team and club registrations.

Vets Age Qualification

It has been noticed that there is an error in rule 4 on page 49 of the handbook. the VETERANS' OPEN SNOOKER LEAGUE SUPPLEMENTARY RULES.
It should read: All players must be aged 60 or over before they can play. If a player's 60th birthday occurs during the season, he/she cannot play before his/her 60th birthday.

Vets Handicaps

We have just had to reinstate a Vets player's handicap because he is over 80. Vets handicaps cannot go down if a player is over 80. If you, or someone you know, is a vet and over 80 at the beginning of the season and the handicap has gone down please contact us to correct it. If a vet will have his/her 80th birthday during this season remember to tick the box against that player in next year's entry form.

Payments

If you need to pay anything to the HBSA this can be done by internet banking.  To do this, the details you need are as follows:  Sort Code: 20-43-04, Account No: 10523232, Reference: Include your club name in the reference. You can also pay using PayPal by sending money to PayPal account: accounts@huddersfieldsnooker.com.

Please inform Dean Poutney (email: r_dean@live.co.uk) and John Wilson (email: johnwilson556@virginmedia.com) when payment has been made for the purpose of keeping their records up to date.)

HELP needed on our website:

We are at risk: should our web site technician become ill or unavailable for any reason our website could stagnate.

Therefore we are still looking for an additional (voluntary) member to work with our web technician and help with the web site maintenance and development.  The current technician is happy to act as a mentor to gradually hand over the reins.  This is a superb opportunity for someone to develop and extend his or her IT skills.  He or she could learn how to develop windows based computer web applications that use a database.

If you are interested contact Pete Gilbert (email: gilbertp@outlook.com) or phone 07890 032041.
