ANOTHER WORLD FIRST - A VIRTUAL LEAGUE !!
Fed up of watching re-runs of 'Hancock's Half Hour' and 'No Minister' ?
|We can't give you real Aunt Sally during the Covid-19 restrictions, but in an attempt to be creative, we are going to run a VIRTUAL LEAGUE.|
|We've now got 60 teams registered and have a created a league of 6 sections, loosely based on last year's finishing positions with the traditional|
|promotions and relegations.|
So, let's play safe Aunt Sally !
|How will it work?|
|A fixtures list has been created (see League->Fixtures List) for an 18 week season, starting as usual on the first Thursday in May (7th).|
|Note that in the case of multiple teams, no attempt has been made to avoid 'home game conflicts', because this is virtual.|
|Between 9:00pm and 10:00pm, HAL9000 (Google it if you don't know!) will work his magic and randomly score each of the 30 games.|
|Each game will be RANDOMLY ascribed a winner and loser with leg scores and doll scores (based on ranges from last season's sections)|
|- thus at the end of the season there will be a clear section winner.|
|The 'Team Status' page on the web site will update dynamically and display the current section results, so that you can follow them.|
|You'll be able to link to Team Stats, but not Player Stats - because it's Virtual.|
|At the end of the season, each section winning team will be presented with £80 (real!) to distribute amongst its players.|
|Can I get involved?|
|Not physically, obviously, but for the duration of the Virtual League, we're going to run an on-line Forum, so you can add your comments to the|
|on-going proceedings. It will be moderated, so please keep it clean and reasonably polite. It will be available from lunchtime on the 7th May.|
|Looking at the 'Virtual Key Dates' list will show that we've incorporated all of the usual competition heats on Sunday nights.|
|The eventual winners of each competition will be allowed to keep the approriate trophy for a year and will be rewarded with a shiny £10 note.|
|(With the predictions of a cashless society coming out of this, it may end up being a voucher for the Morris Clown).|
|Captains will need to do a bit of work here - Competition Registration will be open between May 9th and June 4th - and you'll need to register|
|your entrants in the usual way.|
|On the night, you'll be able to log onto the main 'Competition' page and watch a 'hosted' video of the appropriate heats, played down to finalists.|
|Once lockdown is lifted, we're hoping to hold a (real) Finals to play off these competitions and to award trophies and cash. (TBC)|
|We've already emailed all captains, which is probably why you're reading this right now.|
|Sections and fixtures are drawn up and published. We've coded the web site for a kick-off on Thursday May 7th at 9:00pm,|
|so get the beers in and pull up a comfy chair in front of the screen from 9:00pm onwards.|
