Can we try and change the format next year? It's hard to get excited about a knock out with 3 rounds.
Before you ask, here is my proposition. Adjustments could be made depending on entries, of course.

Teams are seeded into 2 groups using average elo e.g. group A would have seeds 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.

Games played at a neutral central venue e.g. Grangemouth/Glenrothes/Perth/Stirling.

Group stages are all-play-alls with 2 matches played per group, per day - 1 team sits out.
The semis and final are knock outs.
That gives a maximum of 6 matches.

What do people think?

Group Stages (teams shown are for example only)

Group A

Bon Accord
Dundee & Victoria

Group B

Edinburgh West
Glasgow Polytechnic
Wandering Dragons

Semi Finals

Winner group B vs Runner-up group A

Winner group A vs Runner up group B


Winner of semi-final A vs Winner of semi-final B = Champions.
Alan - your suggestion makes it too similar to SNCL
If I dont get a response from E Kilbride/Edinburgh soon, will have to default them

Doesn't make it a bad idea. SNCL is quite succesful. I quite like Alan Tate's proposition, although I'd perhaps tweak it a little, to minimise the cost of venue hire for the initial group stages. Four groups of four, for example.

Any way to get more rounds should work- 4 groups of 4 would require 16 teams. Don't know about the SNCL but am assuming it does not have a semi-final and final.
Rose bowl result:

Edinburgh Civil Service beat Edinburgh B by 5.5 to 0.5.
