What if you need a fill-in?
You are required to find your own fill-in to play for you if you are unavailable to play on any given week. In the lightning roster, the STBA must be informed of who the fill-in is prior to games commencing on the evening, and it must be marked on the sheet for the night’s games. Fill-ins cannot be promoted, however they can still be demoted.
