Mike

"If you are 60 any time in 2019 you can enter"

Unfortunately this statement is opening up a whole new can of worms. Seniors and Masters you can only enter the events after you are 40 or 50 not prior to that time

Maybe need to check this if these are SPA events.

Apologies if you think I am being picky but sometimes consistency is required.

Who okayed this entry criteria Mike??.
As this is not in line with S.P.A. rules or E.B.A. rules.

Also did you see my other post about no seeding in Scottish Championships??

As you know I'm new to the spa,
and can't find any constitution or rules anywhere,
Tbh I don't really want to be running this
Don't need the hassle
And if some else wants to take over this I'd be delighted.
The Grandmasters is not an official category with the Eba is it?
And is just a trial category with the spa,
Ross agreed with you about no seeding,
But said the age criteria would be ok
as I've already told people they can enter

Mike if you need to know anything then you can phone me anytime, i will be happy to inform you.

No-one needs the hassle of pool comps or running the associations, that said if you are going to do it then it has to done right.

There is no grand masters category under the E.B.A. or the S.P.A. for that matter, however if you wish to run this with the S.P.A. backing then you will have to follow the rules, and the rules for every other category states that you have to be the correct age by the time of the comp, this category will have to be the same.(precedent).

I am sorry to tell you Ross is wrong and you will have to inform people that they will not be able to enter unless they are of age at the time of the comp.
Also if you wish to carry this through on the approval of the S.P.A. then everyone playing will have to have paid their £5 membership fee before playing.

Malky.

Sorry guys but I have been over ruled
If you are not 60 on Sunday you can't enter this.
This has been taken out of my hands. Sorry.
Also if you have not paid your spa £5 reg
That will need paid on Sunday too.

But this is definitely still going ahead
THIS SUNDAY the 20th Jan

Unbelievable and Pathetic. The petty pool police at work again. If it wasn't for the hard work Mike McHale has put in to get this off the ground i would pull out. So if there's a few older guys that are 60 in Feb/March they can't play now?.. Honestly,.. Ridiculous ruling.✌
