Championship Round 3 - Oct 2

Attached is this weeks fixture.

 

Bye Teams: Fireballs, Red Rebels, Magic, EBC Angels, Cyborg Bananas 

Fixture Changes:

Miami Heat Girls 2: A new team has been added and this creates a bye. The bye team will participate in the DPnS program and play against teams in this program.

Miami Heat Girls 1: EBC Spiders have been moved to Utah Jazz Girls. This changes takes the bye out of MiamiHeat 1 and also takes the bye out of Utah Jazz Girls

Detroit Pistons 2 : The Assassins (Year 8 Boys) can no longer field a full team so they have withdrawn from the competition. They still have 3 boys who are interested in playing, so if there are some other boys of similar age we would be able to put the team back into the competition. This now leave a bye in this division until further notice. The sporting pulse fixture will still show the game but the nominated team is the bye team therefore – bye to Cyborg Bananas

Paying your game sheet fees in advance for the remainder of the year will avoid the 10% GST.

Some teams pay weekly.  The increase will be $4.50 per game which will bring your game sheet price up to $49.50. 

What to do to save collecting or paying out extra money for the GST this year.

 

Pay before 25th June

Pay after 25th June

 Teams who pay weekly

Pay in advance 14 games ( 2 from season 1 + 12 from season 2)  $45/game = $630
