Spring Annual General Meeting

The Spring AGM was held at VSL on April 25th with one of the largest member turnouts in recent years. Thank you to those who attended. Several Executive positions were elected to replace retiring members. Jamie Way will work with Wolf to learn the ropes to become our new Treasurer.

Key changes from the Spring AGM

This is a summary of primary changes which will come into effect for the 2023-2024 season. 1. The HVDL will welcome teams from all bars / clubs in the Hamilton area. If you know of a bar that might be interested in fielding teams let the Executive know through the "Contact Us" on the main page. All potential bars will be inspected by a member of the Executive prior to approval to register. 2. We will drop one (1) Triples match which will make it possible for ties to occur. Players may play a maximum of 2 triples. Therefore each night will be 6 Doubles Cricket, 6 Doubles 501, Six Singles 501 and 4 Triples 701. 3. We will run two Divisions in 2023-24. The number of teams in each will be confirmed after fall registration. All new teams entering the League will register to Division 2. 4. Members voted to introduce additional League tournaments and to have the Executive draft plans for presentation to the Fall AGM. 5. Members voted to have Playoff Rules formalized in the Rules of Play. The Executive will draft these additions for presentation to the Fall AGM. 6. Members voted to have all registered teams compete for the annual Playoffs which will become a double knockout format. City Cup round one will include all teams with losing teams from round one moving into the Consolation Cup. After the first round both the City Cup and Consolation Cup rounds will be knockout. Other minor changes to wording in the Constitution and Rules of Play were voted in and those will be presented the Fall AGM. Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in the Spring AGM - we have done much to help build and strengthen the League for our 75th Anniversary season!

All-stars earned during tournaments

All-star shots earned during tournaments are recorded and awarded to the players. The way the website works is that there are no "games" being played on a tournament night so there is no way to enter all-star points for that night. In order to award the all-star points we will enter them into the players previous week results. So all-star points earned last night at the Triples Blind Draw have been entered into the night of Nov 1st - the last team play night.
