I’m in the process of revamping our league rules. Our move to OOTP made many of our previous league rules (which evolved over 25+ years) unnecessary. Conversely, we need some new rules related to the new game.
This will take me a little time. This is particularly true as we tweak things as we learn more about the game. I apologize if something gets talked about and changed via Slack conversations but doesn’t get updated here right away. Please let me know if you find something off.
Currently, the most up-to-date info for 2020 can be found at the 2020 WLB Roadmap. I am working to update this section of the site with that info.
Contact me directly if you have a question on something not covered.
Thanks for your patience.
The Whalehead League was founded in 1990 as a seven-team, face-to-face league playing Pursue the Pennant.
Responsibility and Powers of the Commissioner
The Commissioner can act in the best interests of the league at any time, with any means at his disposal.
To start the process, I created a Rules FAQ by topic. It’s still a hodgepodge of topics. I will work to bring some order over time.
