Bookings and Schedule Changes Fall 2017

The Fall 2017 short mat session starts Monday October 2 and officially finishes Sunday December 17, by which time all league games should be completed. Daily Draw bookings will continue to December 31.

We use the Short Mat Calendar and the RSVP reservation system to organize short mat play.

  • League Games: The online Short Mat Calendar for Fall 2017  shows the times and dates of all events taking place on our two short mats — league games, social games, tournaments and personal bookings.  The Calendar is updated throughout the session with the latest information. The Fall 2017 Calendar runs to December 31, beyond the official end of the session, so that Daily Draws and personal bookings can continue until the Winter 2018 schedule starts on January 1, 2018. Please e-mail Andrew Harley with any changes to the times of your A, B, C and D league games. He will move your game to its new time on the Short Mat Calendar.
  • Daily Draws: The online Daily Draw Booking Sheet  and the multiple games reservation form that we used for Daily Draws in Winter 2017 is replaced by the RSVP reservation system, commencing in this Fall 2017 session. The RSVP system is fully automated and requires no intervention by the short mat manager, as was required last winter. RSVP only handles individual games. You enter the system by clicking on the date of the draw on the online short mat calendar and follow the instruction for registration. You will see the names of all players who have previously registered for that session. As soon as you register, your name is added to the list of players. Up to 12 players can join one of the daily social games on the two mats. After 12 reservations have been made, RSVP refuses further entries. Note that there is always a way to divide into two games no matter how many players there are.
     
    The RSVP reservation system for reserving your place in the Daily Draws will not open until September 30. In order to prevent a rush of “block bookings” early in the session, we are asking League players to book no more than two Daily Draw games a week for the first half of October. Non-league players are restricted to no more than three games a week. After October 15, you can book as many draws as you want.
