PPT 2018-19 update

Peter Shaw Posted on by Peter Shaw

This is week 9, and the approximate half way point of our competition so an update is in order. Issues detailed include draws, grading, membership, team photos, representing PPT, and the social side.

Draws

Draws are available here: https://princesparktouch.com/season-draw/

And as you can see (and should already know) we play next week and return on the 09th of January. I will doing the draw for both weeks 10 and 11 (ie the 19th of December and 09th of January) on Friday evening, so if either week is a problem (in fielding a team) please let me know before then and I can likely allocate a bye

Final Grades

As per the faq, grades are subject to change during the first half of the season. However, after week 11 (first week back after Christmas break) I will set 6 permanent grades and draw for the rest of the season will be published.

Membership faq

To reiterate it is a requirement of entry that team captains and their team have read the membership section of our website including the faq:

https://princesparktouch.com/membership/

It takes 6 minutes to read so make sure it is passed on and everyone has read it.

Uniforms

As per the faq, every team is expected to be in a uniform. Any whilst a number of teams are very good, there are several teams who are not complying. Teams not in uniform are letting the whole competition down and we may start penalising teams tries in the new year if this does not improve.

Photos

As you can see from the website I every week we take photos, over the course of the season we try to ensure every team has at least one formal photo taken. All these photo are uploaded to the website and if Facebook is your thing follow the link on each post to the facebook album and tag away.

Senior Affiliates Cup is the big one, we are current champions and plan to defend our title. So please spread the word!

Social Side

We pride ourselves on being the social comp.

Every week we are inviting 2-4 teams to join us for presidents drink at the BBQ in an effort to get to know them. But for those not invited that week they are encouraged to bring their own drinks and have a drink in the park post game.

Also 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 and get down to our sponsors the Great Northern Hotel.

So get in the social spirit.
