and down came the snow
 
i have heard rumours of a thursday pitch inspection at Loo

I was only listening to what the groundsman was telling me. The problem is now if we get a thaw we will almost certainly be waterlogged as all the water from the Aire Valley eventually finds itself hitting a bottleneck right between our pitches.

Just spoken to our groundsman at the Bees and he said there is no chance of the pitch been fit for saturday. Even if the snow melts the pitch would be left waterlogged.

Bradford have asked the League if they can pospone their game Today. Pitch still frozen in places and where water is lying it has now frozen, Surrounding Roads have black ice on them. If it does thaw there is a possiblity of flooding. Unless there is any change this will now be re scheduled for 8th May!!. We will now be back to clubs playing weakened sides if the game is meaningless for them but it could affect relegation and we will also be into County games. Last season Caldy had 7 in the Cheshire and 2 in the Lancashire squads if they all play for the county then Bradford will effectively be playing their 2nd XV. I am sure that clubs like Waterloo will like that !!

There may be scope for some floodlit games say on a Tuesday or Thursday night when players would be training in any case.

As mentioned by Macc Army above, is there anyone on this thread that can give us any indication of what the pitch is like up in Kendal?

League Sec has responded, no games can be cried off until Friday and only with independant inspection.
 For those who want floodlight games great, fancy travelling on the M62 at rush hour to get to Bradford for a 7.30 KO, however it might be a bit of a problem to get the floodlights built in time. I suppose we may be told by the League to find a ground with lights to play on. Great No Gate No bar and all the expenses. Cheaper to give up 5 points.

We have a floodlit pitch which comes up to scratch in terms of barriers etc and we also have a floodlit cricket pitch which we keep eyeing enviously - it would look top notch with a set of posts in the middle!
 
Your problem might be getting from Bradford to Bingley during rush hour. It could take you best part of an hour from the M62 to Wagon Lane.

Ivor tells us we cant postpone until Friday afternoon when a referee has told us it is unplayable. Presumably after we have pulled out of the flood or off the skating rink that will be our car park.
 
But just between me and you, I'd say the game is off. Hopefully we will have had a miraculous change of fortune before we get to may so the relegation issue wont come into it!

Can anyone think of other ways of settling the league?

  1. A goal kicking competition
  2. Seven a side competition
  3. Shove half penny
  4. A cricket match

Any other ideas?
