It seems there's always something that requires a league meeting being called to discuss. undecided

not all league meetings are bad, though. I've had some that were to celebrate someone doing something good, one where we had to approve a bowler changing hands because of injury to their main hand, one to disseminate a budget change because of more than anticipated money coming in so prize money went up.

smile All of which I LIKE in how a league is run. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any more like that one.

We just left a league that was ALL about the money. We had to leave because things just kept getting more expensive. Heck - subs had to PAY $5 over and above the regular league fees paid by the regular member . . . shocked

I've never participated in the first meeting for a new league. I've often wondered how existing rules were first established and has anyone revisited some of the 'stranger' rules :-)

During a general meeting, anyone can make a motion to discuss a topic and if another person "seconds" the motion, the board will hear the matter. Once heard, depending on the issue, either the board will make a ruling or it will be presented to the floor for a vote by the teams.

This idea is working out quite well, last week we got hammered points wise , 18-2 , lost the 1st by 7 pins , 2nd by 11 , 3rd by 4, managed to pick up 2 bonus points only but we finished 2nd overall on total score.

Not recording my scores on the league thread still struggling with ball speed , changed down to my least reactive balls to compensate for too much hand rest are just reading too early and my average is slowing creeping up,
