The umpiring roster has been updated with 3 more rounds and the remainder of the season will follow in the next few weeks.
Also, a reminder that with the conclusion of Round 3, the relaxed rules around fill-ins return to normal again (see section 3 and 6 of the Regulations). Note that all fill-in names should be written into the specific section on the sheet and not directly below the registered players. A fill-in is someone who is not printed on the score sheet. Note to Captains; fill-ins written in the team section of the sheet are not considered as newly registered players until an updated Team Registration Sheet has been submitted.
During Round 4 and subsequent rounds each team must have a minimum of 4 of its own registered players (or forfeit the game – don’t forget you could still play a scratch match with whomever is there). Note that with the DKHAC pool space booking process any booking not cancelled with at least 10 days notice is non-refundable. In other words, lost pool time & fees.
Scores from registered (with another team) players do not count at all Round 4 onwards, so also not towards the total team score (and obviously not be eligible for B & F points for that game). A non-registered fill-in can score and that score will count towards the team total score, but they will not be attributed to the players top scoring rankings & not be eligible for B & F points until officially registered with a team (captain updates team sheet and submits with Kyle and Dave).
Duty teams please note that if a registered player scores as a fill-in during round 4 or a later round, and an umpire has not picked this up and signals the score, these scores should not be counted on the score sheet. If you are not sure whether a player is registered with a team or not, then ask the relevant captain and/or umpires ASAP (preferably before game start).
