Pairs League scoring
Our club runs a Pairs League of 16 pairs over 3 weeks where each pair plays 5 other pairs each week. Last week one pair did not attend though they had given notice that they couldn't. A substitute could not be found so there was a 5 board sit out for which we awarded a score of 12-8 to the non offending pair.
In order to clarify the final ranking should we delete all the scores for the missing pair over the whole event? They also missed the previous match but a substitute pair was found. In other words should the League just involve the actual players who have played in all 3 matches?
I would be grateful for other people's experience of Pairs Leagues and how they cope with no shows.
