Dear all,

I've been told by two or three of you that my first email on Thursday 
did not get through to the Captains' email list, and that this morning 
was therefore your first notice of the 10-outing form.

As a result of this, I think it's reasonable to extend the deadline for 
return to Thursday. However, as the 10-outing rule is well established, 
as are the various deadlines for scratching/refund proportions, I don't 
propose to make any changes there. Therefore, in order to secure a 100% 
refund on entry fees, any scratches should be notified by 5pm tomorrow 
as normal.
