MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

Membership renewals are due from 1st October and forms will be sent out during the week commencing Monday 23rd September to all members. If you have not received yours by 29th September, please contact me as a matter of urgency. Details of payments, which as always include the BAFRA and BAFA fees, will be on the form along with details on how to pay. Those recently joined are exempt from payment and this will be made clear in your covering letter and will details of anyone due a rebate.

However you choose to pay, please ensure that you return your form to me. Failure to do so leads to delay in enacting your renewal and may result in your membership renewal being delayed.

If you anticipate having difficulty in paying, please contact the Director of Finance via finance@bafra.info to discuss a payment plan. This will only be seen by the Director of Finance and his deputy. When you complete the renewal form you only need to tick the box saying you have paid electronically or made an arrangement with the Director of Finance.

As always, there will be an annual survey of membership that goes along with the renewal process - all the details of this will also be included.

In the unlikely event that you are not renewing, please let me know (with your reasons if you wish to share them).

Paul Sutton – General Secretary

END ZONE

PLAY OF THE WEEK:

New this week

Play: 2nd and 10 at Team A’s 30-yard line. A1 receives the snap and throws a backwards pass towards A34. A34 catches the ball behind the line of scrimmage and runs towards the sideline. As he approaches the sideline, he throws a forward pass which is touched by B56 behind the neutral zone before being caught by A80 8 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. A80 advances to midfield where he is tackled. Prior to A34 throwing the forward pass, A78 was 5 yards downfield at Team A’s 35-yard line.


Ruling?

Last week

Play: Team A’s ball, 3rd and goal from Team B’s 12-yard line. Team A attempt a field goal with a holder and kicker in position to kick the ball. The ball is partially blocked by B74 behind the neutral zone and loops high into the air. It is then caught by A25 in the end zone.


Ruling: This is illegal touching by Team A. The ball is dead where caught. The result of the play is a Touchback. (6-3-6-a, 6-3-3, 2-11-5)

MECHANICS:

New this week

Game Situation: Team A, 4th and 30 at Midfield. Team A line up with two receivers on either side of the formation. Team B line up with 3 defensive linemen, all other defensive players are lined up near the line to gain. On a 7 man crew which official will key on the widest player on the press-box side of the formation at the snap?


Answer next issue…

Last week

Game Situation: On an 8-man crew, what should the Line Judge do on a measurement?


Answer: The Line Judge should move quickly to a position on the appropriate yard line to indicate where the Linesman should place the clip in order to make an accurate measurement (i.e. in a precise north-south line with the ball). There is no need for the Line Judge to put his foot on the chain. (M18.8 & M18.11).
