Do not hesitate to ask questions about the HOD, prior to, to help you be more prepared.
All Teams must attend the draft session or have someone represent them (ie substitute). Please notify THENHLJL if you are planning such arrangements. You cannot ask a participating RSPS Team to be your substitute. There are no exceptions. Teams should consider preparing for a substitute in case of any last minute emergency.
