10th Feb (2010)Claiming Expenses for Cancelled Fixtures

If a game is cancelled and your have been appointed to it by DHUA please DO NOT enter any Match Feedback, including any transport costs incurred for the fixture in question as it causes all sorts of problems when we try an reappoint to the fixture in the future.

If you do incur any transport costs (e.g. because you travelled to the game and it was then abandoned before it was completed, cancelled before you got there, etc.) then please email the DHUA Treasurer with details of your transport costs (if applicable).

Also copy me in the DHUA Appointments Secretary so that your appointment for this game can be removed.
