Teamers, the service we use to contact players about team events is now only allowing each team to have 200 free texts per month. It is vital when you receive a teamer that you respond straight away so as it does not cost your manager money. Also if you have given your email address the teamer notification will automatically go to your email because it is still free so please check your emails as well.  We ask all our members for their cooperation in this so as to keep our running costs down.
