After 4 days and 68 votes have been recorded a massive 93% have voted against any change in team numbers for the 2022 season. This proposed rule change has to receive 67% support at the Half-Year Meeting next month to be introduced and if the poll is any guide then it is light years away from being successful.
This is a proposed change to the Veterans League Rules that will be voted on at the Half-Year Meeting on 12 October. This proposal is to reduce the number of bowlers in all the 10-man teams to 8 for the start of the 2022 season.

Do you think it is inevitable, unnecessary or premature? This quick poll is to capture bowler's thinking at present. All votes are completely anonymous and we are keeping it simple with YES or NO or UNDECIDED as the only 3 answers. The voting form is on the homepage
