Welcome to issue number 500 of THE BEAR FACTS the weekly bulletin which attempts to keep all of Warwickshire’s basketballers up-dated.
It was back in October 2003 that the first one was sent out in an attempt to ensure that players and officials knew what was going to happen the following week. This came after a spate of “no-shows” by people who were unaware of fixtures and changes. To this service we have added over the years, league tables, courses and other event information and have tried to make THE BEAR FACTS our mechanism for communication between everyone involved in our great sport.
LAST WEEK FOR REGISTRATION….
Next week brings the end of January so we have to remind you that no players can be registered to play in this season’s league or cup after 31st.
In addition, in order to qualify to play in the Handicap Cup competitions, which starts next week, players must have turned out at least three times in league matches for the team or club to whom they are registered – unless they receive special dispensation.
*Remember by registering your players, they are covered for personal accident insurance, and it’s a compulsory requirement if participating in Warwickshire Basketball competitions.
