2017 Playoff Meeting

November 5, 2017 – 02:00 PM

 

Presidents,
 
Our 2017 playoff meeting will be held at the Smith County Ag. building outside Raleigh this Sunday November 5 at 2pm.
We will be in the room we used for book inspection so seating will be somewhat limited.
All teams in each format, Flag, Tinamite, little 8 and big 16, Bring your book,(s) on the team or teams that you have in the playoffs Tom Polk, Myself, and any Vice Commissioners present will look them over and give anyone who may play you a chance to look them over, maybe this will alleviate the protest burden during the playoff games.
All teams that are making the playoffs in each format bring me 2 clean copies of your game roster that you intend to use during the playoffs and a copy of your liability insurance.
Playoffs will begin November 11, any and all tiebreaker shootouts will be completed between November 6 and November 9.
