Poll: Veterans League rule change

Veterans League

There 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.

Knowing that not all club representatives will consult with their members before voting at the meeting we thought it would be of interest to learn what you bowlers think of that proposed change. 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

Cast your vote on the homepage and then use the form below to add any comments on the proposal. We will be providing updates on voting and comments over the next 5 days before we close the poll at 5pm on Friday. The poll will only allow you to vote once. We will be providing regular updates on voting and comments through the coming week.

The poll on the home page does not allow comments but any views you wish to share with other bowlers can be entered on the form below. Any problems with that please use the contact form here.

Sledgehammer to crack a nut comes to mind.

This season has been like no other because of Covid.

Some bowlers delayed starting to bowl and some decided to give this season a miss and return next season. So next season we can expect an increase making this proposal grossly premature.

I await the proposers of this idea to come up with…
