15 May 2020**UPDATE - 2020/2021 REGISTRATIONS**

Last night, the captains of just over 30 teams, who had so far not replied, were sent emails / registrations forms one last time, to be returned NO LATER than 31st MAY.
The response so far since last night has been good, and therefore, it looks hopeful that we should have a 'full set' by the end of the month.
At that stage, we might know a little more about the effects of relaxing further any current restrictions, and at that time, we can hopefully start looking at collecting fees and other aspects of finishing this season and starting the next.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SUBMIT YOUR TEAM BY 31st MAY 2020.
Thank you - Bob Patterson General Secretary / Treasurer.

23 Apr 2020** NEW SEASON REGISTRATION EMAILS**

Thanks all for your submitted registration forms any that have been received will be sanctioned in turn if there are any queries/errors I will contact you if not I will email you once I have submitted the forms onto the website.

Once submitted you will not be able to see the new information until we are at a stage to put the season live, whenever that might be.

Please don't email/phone to say there has been no changes, the information you will see on the website is from this season that has just finished.

Please be patient I will probably begin inputting the information late May once the bulk of registrations have been received.

**PLEASE NOTE-: For the benefit of those still to submit, the registration form is NOT attached it forms a PART of the email itself, if you scroll down.**

Stay safe and take care.

Paul Grimes,
LBSO league secretary.

14 Apr 2020**NEW SEASON REGISTRATION DETAILS**

From the management committee of the LBSO we hope you and your families are all safe and well in these troubled times. As hard as it is we must follow the government guidelines on social distancing and wherever possible avoid contact with our friends and families.

Our clubs and snooker centres remain closed for the foreseeable future this is subject to when the country is able to begin to return to normal.

We still have all our competitions to complete Paul Marlow and Mark Ball will keep you all informed as to when we can resume.

Although there is no certainty as to when the new season will begin we must make plans for the start of the new season which is due to start subject to confirmation on W/C Wednesday/ Thursday 2nd/3rd September 2020.

Later this week all captains/IT delegates will be notified by Bob Patterson regards registering your clubs/teams for the new season.

Anyone wanting to register a new club/team will need to contact the LBSO and submit their interest in registering.

Regards Paul Grimes,
LBSO league secretary.

02 Apr 2020**STEVE RAINE - QUEENSWOOD SOCIAL - RIP**

It is with great sadness, that we have to announce the death of Steve Raine, who passed away yesterday evening.
Steve played for many years at North West Ward Liberal Club on Woodhouse Street before it closed, and most recently at Queenswood Social, where he was the captain of the team for a number of years, including this season.
Out of respect, Steve's funeral service will take place at Wakefield Crematorium on Friday 24th April.
Sincere condolences are sent at this difficult time, to Steve's wife Julie (who many of you will have seen with him over the years), his family, friends and his team colleagues.

02 Apr 2020**LBSO UPDATE FOR THIS SEASON & NEXT**

All team captains were sent an email last night, with an update on various present and future issues. Please check your inboxes.
REGISTRATIONS - 2020/21 SEASON - registration more than likely by email sent to all captains later this month, to be returned by the end of May, with season to start in September as usual at present (SUBJECT TO CHANGE?).
COMPETITIONS - refer to previous instructions posted on the 16th March below.
PRESENTATIONS NIGHTS - two (at least) again intended this season. On hold until clubs are in a position to stage them. Further details to follow later.

24 Mar 2020**NEW SEASON PREPARATIONS**

At this time we are all unsure of what the future holds and when we can hope to see the first signs of normality returning to our daily lives.

Once we are given the all clear to resume our normal lives we will be able to look to a start date for the 2020/21 season.

In the near future all captains will receive an email from Bob Patterson General secretary/treasurer about how we will submit the registration forms for your teams.

I hope you and your families all stay safe and well.

Paul Grimes,
LBSO league secretary.
