At the conclusion of the first quarterfinal on Saturday, the captains of all winning teams are required to report to Bryn Mawr no later than 2:45 pm. The semifinalists will be announced at that time. The umpires have been instructed to be very strict on time and I urge all captains to keep this in mind. The dress code for all umpires and match referees will be dark pant with blue shirt. The Head Umpires have requested me to clarify that the penalty for a no-ball will be ONE run. Please make sure your team members are aware of this. If there are any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the executive committee and/or the head umpires. Thank you!
