    07/09/21 1830 Kent v Scunthorpe (Champ)

    same as for a draw, 1pt home 1 + 1pt bonus away
  2. Just last week alone, in 4 Premiership meetings, 1 had no guests, in the other 3 r/r x 1 G x 5. In the Championship, in which there were 9 meetings, not 1 used r/r or G, but r/r x 7 & G x 16 times was used.
  3. In 6 man teams, the top rider will probably have 6 rides, the next 4 riders would have 5 rides & the lowest rider 4. How many guest riders do we use every week? 1-3? 4-6? 7-9? more? Riders can still go into the "assistance pot" even if they ride in 1 league but use the conversion rate as we do now.

    Ipswich 2022

    Workington 2018. Won League, KO Cup & Shield with a team picked late. (thought Neila or Geoff100 would have posted this but probably do not come to the Premiership section too often. )

    Play Off Dates

    Going by the original date for play offs being from 17th September (why have rules if you are going to break them to suit others), 4 teams have now ridden their allotted 20 meetings & as of today, the league placings are 1. Poole 2. Redcar 3. Glasgow 4. Leicester 5. Edinburgh 6. Scunthorpe These are not final placings as some teams could not be bothered in arranging on alternative nights so were given a 10 day extension. This now means that the play offs have been shortened from just over 6 weeks to around 5 weeks &, as it stands at the moment, 4 of the 6 teams mainly race on Fridays. Lets us see how many change a race night to suit when the weather gets worse during October.

    PLRC and CLRC ????

    With the Championship Play offs being shortened from 6 1/2 weeks to 5 weeks, I would think it would be VERY difficult to arrange a CLRC.
  7. 6 man teams with riders earning more as they get more races. Riders not chosen in declared teams go in to an "assistance pot" where they are allowed to assist any team up to a maximum of appearances. Riders earn more, lessens doubling up/down, team identity no longer guest/joke issue.

    Edinburgh Play Offs

    I can not see the reason it shouldn't as 1 meeting at home & the other away. From what I remember because of a few years ago(think it was Scotty), a rider can not ride for 1 team then the other in a 2 legged tie.

    No change next year?

    He puts that many ideas on here, then rambles on about them, that if he put them to his own promoter, his promoter would not have time to do his own jobs.

    Visa's and Immigration Rules

    A bit of both possibly

    Poole Pirates 2021

    I guess you was not there Lisa as 1 poster says that you are a Poole Armchair supporter but it was a loss of 16 points(50-34).

    Visa's and Immigration Rules

    Apparently, I have it from a good source(away from Scunthorpe) that Tero is having problems with his visa as he was not given an elite sportspersons visa at the start of the season.

    10.09 - Scunny v Poole

    It is overcast but warm at the moment but pockets of rain are on the radar, of which some might hit & some might miss but overall should not cause an undue problem.

    Exactly my point. They (BSP Ltd or SCB) make the rules, do not explain them clearly with grey areas found in the RS process this year alone never mind dodgy signings on false averages & team changes. Even though we are now in to September, there will have been a few Promoter meetings at Rugby around the AGM & rules for 2022 & it would not surprise me that Plymouth & Kings Lynn are not the only ones to have made signings in readiness for 2022 just not announced.
