I don't think we have enough players to do the promote/demote. We only have 7 teams (4-6 players) for our Tuesday league. Sometimes that goes up and sometimes teams drop out. Sundays are non-handic...

L-Style lippoints short. Work pretty well and almost never break. I've probably had 3 break in the past 1 and 1/2 years. I change them eventually once I've had to bend them back a few times.
