I wouldn't blame Kent if they decided to boycott the competition in future years. The ECF has got its pound of flesh in membership money, why does it need to wreck the competition for good measure?
Checking the exact time to the hour that someone became a member is taking compliance with rules to a level almost beyond belief.
Well, I'm not going to comment further until it is clear what will happen. And it might be be best for others to wait likewise.
