Handicap comp to have semis and final at venue. Team cup - 4 man teams. Clubs can enter two teams. Billiards to be played over one day at a venue.

League formation : General consensus is that season is too long. Now with additional teams joining, it was voted league will split at Xmas. Two leagues moving forward with promotion/relegation battle.
