    How Will the Cancellation of Nationals Affect League Participation?

    To answer the question, no. True, participation will be down this year but that's due to the coronavirus, and with no vaccine in sight, will likely be the number 1 cause for numbers being down in 2021.

    Interesting happenings with NorCal 40+ 4.5+ Nationals representative

    Is it certain there were officials at the match? Nationals and some sections are moving away from having roving officials and instead having a lone referee. One would think if there were roving officials, then there should be an unbiased account of events at the match.
