Issue 27/20 21st October 2020
As you are aware, we are now in the membership renewal period. Renewal forms have now been sent to all members. If you have not received yours please check your spam folder and if you still cannot find it, please contact me. 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 was made clear in the email along with details of anyone due a rebate.
If you anticipate having difficulty in paying, please contact the Director of Finance (via email@example.com) to discuss a payment plan. This will only be seen by the Director of Finance, and his deputy, in the strictest of confidence.
As always, there will be an annual survey of membership that goes along with the renewal process which you are requested to complete. Information gathered from this exercise is used to inform BAFRA policy going forwards.
Thank you to those who have already renewed, a list of those who have renewed will be circulated separately. If your name does not appear on this list, and you believe it should, please contact me. In addition, please note that all renewals are acknowledged.
In the unlikely event that you are not renewing, please let me know (with your reasons if you wish to share them).
Richard Moger – General Secretary

Play: 4th & 7 at Team A’s 45-yard line. A19 punts the ball. While the ball is in the air, B38 gives an invalid fair catch signal. B80 catches the kick at Team B’s 20-yard line and advances to Team B’s 27-yard line. Which Team will netx put the ball in play? Where will the Ball be place? What will the play clock be set to?
Play: 2nd & 8 at Team’s B 40-yard line. 1:56 remains in the second quarter. A66 snaps the ball high to quarterback A10 who has to jump to control the snap. Whilst still airborne at Team B’s 45-yard line, A10 pitches the ball forwards to A88 who has run across the front of A10. A88 runs wide to the right and runs out of bounds at Team B’s 30-yard line. During A88’s run, B24 blocks A73 below the waist 6 yards beyond the neutral zone.

Game Situation: In the event that an official throws a flag for a foul, and that flag falls in the wrong location, how should the official act to ensure the flag is moved to the right place?
Game Situation: 1st and 10 at the A40, team A run an option play. While under pressure at the A35 quarterback A3 throws a backwards pass to A20, who muffs the ball at the A30. The ball then bounces on the ground and goes out of bounds at the A32. How should the covering officials make use bean bags to indicate spots of interest in this play?
Answer: A covering official should not use beanbags to mark the spot of any backward pass or muff in the backfield M21.2.2.f. This is because possible enforcement spots include the previous spot or the spot of the foul, but not the end of the related run. Since the ball went out of bounds following a backward pass, the ball will next be put in play by team A at the A32, 2nd and 18. (7-2-4-a)
