BAFRA CHARITY 2016


All of the money has now been collected and I am pleased to inform members that we have this year raised £1795.00 for our chosen charity, Cancer Research UK. This is the highest amount we have ever raised and the directors thank members for their superb generosity. The President will send a cheque on behalf of BAFRA to Cancer Research UK for the above amount.

WORKING PARTY FOR U18 MEMBERSHIP


Thank you to those members who have already responded to volunteer for this, however the working party still needs additional volunteers. As such, if anyone else is willing to participate in helping put together a framework for trialling BAFRA membership for U18s, please can you e-mail me to let me know of your interest.

END ZONE


PLAY OF THE WEEK:


New this week

Play: On a Team A kickoff, B64 holds at the Team B 45 yard line before the untouched ball goes out of bounds at the Team B 40 yard line. Ruling?
Ruling?

Last week

Play: Third and 18 on Team A's 2 yard line. The game clock shows 0:30 in the fourth quarter and the score is A28-B23. QB A18 throws a forward pass that is deflected back to him while in A's end zone. He then throws a pass from A's end zone to A82 at Team A's 12 yard line that falls incomplete. Ruling?


Ruling: The second forward pass by Team A is an illegal forward pass. Since the pass was from A's end zone, acceptance of the penalty results in a safety. However since Team B will still be behind by 3 points they may decline the penalty and accept the result of the play, which is an incomplete forward pass. In this case, Team A may take the 4th down snap and step on the end line for a safety anyway, which would take a few more seconds off the clock. Team B will probably accept the penalty.


MECHANICS:


New this week

Game Situation: Team A attempt a field goal. How should the linesman react move after the successful kick to ensure best coverage of the continuing action?
Answer next issue...

Last week

Play: How should the officials efficiently change ends at the end of the first and third periods after the Referee has signaled the end of the period?
Answer: M-20-4. The Linejudge should move to the succeeding spot (both yard line and lateral position) in the opposite half of the field. The Referee and Umpire should go to the succeeding spot and record (in writing) the yard line on which the ball is placed, its lateral position, the number of the next down and the distance to the line to gain. The Head Linesman should record the yard line on which the chain clip is set, the yard line on which the the ball is placed, the number of the next down and the distance to the line to gain. Then he should grasp the chain and the clip, and keeping hold of it, reverse the chain and move it and its crew to the corresponding yard line in the other half of the field. The down box should be moved to its new position at the same time. The Backjudge should move downfield with the players.
