-----------   NOTES from Neil Bradbury - I have to work on Saturday and will be unable to attend the board meeting.   I have a few items that have been brought up to me by players that I intended to raise for possible discussion.

1.  Lowering the POL total for B league.  Player believes this will discourage as many A level players playing in B, and consequently give genuine B level players the opportunity to play at their level.

2.  Adjustment of player POL mid-season.  Primarily aimed toward brand new unknown players who may start as a 4, but should be reviewed mid-season if they are legitimate 7+, for example.  Player compared to APA pool league where after a captain raises an objection, an anonymous "reviewer" is assigned to observe the player and recommend adjustment to their level.

3.  Clarity needed on chalking responsibility during team game.  Believed to have been a courtesy that the home captain/team is responsible for chalking the team game.

4.  Rather than a team having a "home" bar, we follow a "Premier League" style where teams travel to different bars each week.
