nice compilation of the obvious there warwolf - and I say that without the least bit of sarcasm. Noobs - please read there before opening the next "woe-is-me" post.
As for Warwolf's ideas, the one thing I'd ad to that is conversion of our school tourney - which is pretty good and countrywide actually - to a 2 day FC affair. 2 innings per team with Max 80 overs for 1st innings. Do it over weekend so kids don't have school disrupted.
