New Season and AGM Decisions

NEW (updated 26 September 2021)

At the AGM/Registration meeting on 23 September it was agreed that the new league season will start on Thursday 21 October, with nine

teams taking part: Alexandra, Flying Coach, Railway, Sun & Castle, Tiviot, Wandering Star, Railway Fliers, Horse & Farrier and HMRUFC.

A further four teams are ‘on sabbatical’ for at least the next twelve months: Smart Alex, Travellers Call, Tame Valley, Fingerpost.

There will be some changes of team name and/or venue – teams affected are requested to let us know of these changes ASAP.

At least two teams (Railway and Wandering Star) are actively looking for new players – please get in touch if you would like to join a team for

the 2020-21 season.

 

Financial matters

It was agreed that teams will not pay a subscription fee for the new season as our building society balance is quite healthy, due in no small

part to no prize money being awarded during the unfinished 2019-20 season.  It was also agreed unanimously that we will look at moving the

building society account from the Coop to the Vernon - the Coop is to convert to a bank and this would result in us incurring bank charges.

We will also increase the number of signatories on the account to four from the current two.

 

Fixtures and question setting

The league programme will comprise eighteen weeks, with the first games on Thursday 21 October.  There will be time to complete the season

even in the event of further lockdowns during the season – assuming these are for no more than two or three months.  If there are no, or

limited, further disruptions there will be time to play the knockout competitions over consecutive weeks after the completion of the league

programme.  The Christmas Quiz will be held on Thursday 16 December.  Teams on sabbatical will be invited to take part in both the Christmas

Quiz and any knockout competitions.  Sadly there will be no inter-league competitions with our friends from the Withington League during the

2021-22 season, although Smart Alex will contest the final of the WIST Champions Cup that was originally due to be played in April 2020; their

match against WithQuiz representatives The Albert will now take place on Wednesday 5 January 2022.

 

Each team will have two ‘bye’ weeks and will be expected to set the questions for both these weeks.

Dave Badley will no longer arrange delivery of question papers to venues; the team setting questions will be responsible for ensuring that a

question paper reaches each of the (four) venues by the Tuesday of the week of the quiz.  For the first week of the season it was agreed that

we will use an unused question paper from the 2019-20 season.  The question setting rota and fixtures for 2020-21 will be published on this

website during week beginning 27 September.

 

Communications

A discussion on how to improve communications between the league and our teams (and also between teams) resulted in some new

approaches.

We now have a Facebook group, kindly set up by Jamie of the Wandering Star: https://www.facebook.com/groups/stockportquizleague/

Paul and Anton of the Sun & Castle also thought that league members might be interested in their fun quiz on Facebook which can be

found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/437558870890124/?ref=share

We also agreed to set up a WhatsApp group.  Will each team please submit an email including all mobile numbers and names that they

would like to be added to the group.  Group members will be identified by their first name and team name only, e.g. Charlie (Red Lion).
