This Wednesday (the 03rd of February) is week 12 of our 16 week competition, and we are now into the final third of our season (the longest in Melbourne). All grades have now been set and are very close, and can be viewed here:
So I am writing this note to clarify the current state of the comp and the structure of the comp (including finals) over the final part of the season.
Are regular season rounds with points going towards the grades which have been set
This is semi final week for all grades (for those teams that make finals). Except for C1 Grade, in C1 Grade the top two teams will play have their grand final that day and teams 3 and 4 will play off.
Those teams missing the finals who don’t have a bye will still play off in friendly matches for final ladder positions. (although its all friendly at PPT).
This is grand final week for teams making GF’s and our last week.
Those teams missing the finals will play off in friendly matches for final ladder positions (subject to teams having Byes). Teams in C1 Grade will have a bye.
There will also be extra drink vouchers and an end of season function that night, at the Great Northern Hotel, so keep the night free.
Other important things to note:
List of players
Unfortunately the national body (Touch Football Australia), require us to keep a full list of players playing in our comp. As such if you have not sent in a full list of players please do so ASAP (unregistered players will to be able to play finals).
On Sunday 21st February, TFV are running the Affiliates cup at Elwood park. PPT is planning on putting in mens, womens and mixed teams. More info here:
So if anyone in your team has what it takes to play for PPT let Brad Chant know, email back this address or phone him on: 0400 070 077.
Teams are reminded of our uniform policy:
Most teams are very good in this regard but for the benefit of our referees penalties for players out of uniform will be enforced in finals.
This season we have been a bit lighter on for referes tha we would like.
Without referees there is no touch so it is important we keep adding to he ranks of whistle blowers. So if anyone you know is a qualified refree or is interested in getting qualified please put us in touch.
At PPT we look after our referees the best and it is a very enjoyable and social thing to be involved with. More info here:
Pub Sponsor and social side
Finally its social touch, so hang around for a snag fro our BBQ or get down to the Great Northern and have a drink in the beer garden. Every week the referees have beer vouchers available so whether you win or lose ask the referee on your field after the match and he should have one for your team
