Local organisers are kindly asked to remember tournament rule 1.2.ii, which says national tournaments should be scheduled on dates that do not clash with international tournaments. This is so our international tournaments do not have to compete with tournaments that are important on a national level. Of course, this is sometimes difficult, especially as we now have more countries hosting World Tour tournaments. If a clash is unavoidable, organisers can ask the ITHF for an exception. A clash with a standard World Tour tournament far away from the respective country is likely to be allowed if there are good reasons, but clashes with tournaments in the Majors (M) or Super Series (S) will only be approved in extreme cases.

5-second timer app
In the upcoming Delegates Conference, delegates will be voting on a possible way to make the 5-second rule more precise. Part of that proposal is that referees could have the option of using a simple 5-second timer app. The referee would reset the timer by pressing the button every time the puck is passed. If the timer reaches 5 seconds, a sound is heard. If it reaches 6 seconds, another sound is heard and the referee can allow a face-off. The referee can stop the timer by pressing and holding the button. If you want to try this app, it can be downloaded here. Currently, the app is only available for use on Android phones. Here are instructions on how to install an APK file on your Android phone.

I will kindly ask every organizer who this spring will apply for a tournament belonging to ITHF World Tablehockey Tour 2012/2013 to plan every detail before asking ITHF to sanction this tournament. With this I mean finding a playing venue, being totally sure about the date of the tournament, informing ITHF about the exact city of the tournament and - as much as possible - informing about the planned playing system and time schedule. If a national federation has already planned a national tournament the 26th of May 2012 they are not expected to remove this because of this change."
