One Question Poll
The Brisbane Hockey Association (BHA) has a rule (from season 2019) that all Semi-Finals, Preliminary Finals and Grand Finals are decided, in the event of a draw at normal full time, by the 8-second shoot-out.
The Brisbane Masters sub-committee is seeking your opinion with the following quick survey (going to all database members) re the semi and preliminary finals
CLICK THE LINK to the One Question Survey 
You can choose either YES to agree to Shoot-outs, or NO to agree to "highest on ladder" progresses.
If you wish, you may also leave a comment on the form.

Read and Heed!

Conversation between two parents watching a junior hockey game:
P1: “Which one is your lad?”
P2: ”Why?”
P1: “I wanted to tell him how rubbish he is.”
P2: “You can’t say that. He’s only a kid. How would you like it if I said that to your child?”
P1: “You’ve done it all game.”
P2: “Why, who’s your kid?”
P1: “The umpire.”
The task of umpiring would be easier if we players did not make so many errors. And say too much!
