MEMBERSHIP: On or before the season begins players must pay the required fee determined by the executive. Players must fill in and sign a completed registration/waiver form.

PLAYER DRAFT:  A committee, as determined by the executive, will draft the teams based on the number of players registered. Team members shall be drafted based on position and rank of player. A captain shall be appointed from each team. If players are not drafted they will be notified by a member of the committee and placed on a spare list.

REGULAR SEASON and PLAYOFF FORMAT:  The league’s standard templates for 5 or 6 team score sheets will be used.

Forfeiture:  Any team that has less than 4 players on the day of play officially forfeits. However, the team can avoid forfeiture, if the captain notifies the convener no later than noon the day prior to play, allowing the convener sufficient time to get enough league approved spares to bring the team up to 4 players. When the team has 4 approved players, it may pick up additional players from other teams. If a shortfall occurs during playoffs, the team will play with a maximum of 5 players, rotating without a loss of point.
