"LET'S get some cricket back on" is the view of Baxenden skipper Mark Rishton - despite the fact his team will be the one which benefits most if there is no play again this season.
Baxenden are two points clear at the top of what has been an on-off season due to the weather and, with 11 league games left to play, are hoping they can remain in pole position by September.
But Rishton wants to do it the right way by seeing off the opposition on the pitch rather than in the club house.
"It is costing more money not playing because we are sitting around playing cards or buying drinks!" said the Baxenden skipper.
"But it is getting really annoying now as we all just want to play. If the weather does last until the end of the season, we have won the league but we just want to get some cricket back on. I am sure everyone is the same.
"I think we deserve to be where we are at the moment, we have played well, but I think whoever wins the title will deserve it at the end of the season."
There was no play on Saturday in the league and the Ramsbottom Cup quarter-finals involving Baxenden and Great Harwood were called off for the third time on Sunday.
The final was due to take place on the 5 August but will have to be put back with both sides hoping their last eight games can finally take place on that day.
Baxenden face Barnoldswick while Harwood play Blackburn Northern with Whalley and Cherry Tree already through.
"We were offered a bowl out but we didn't want to do that," said Rishton. "We have four Sundays left and need three of them to be fine to play the quarters, semis if we get through and the final.
"It means everything is touch and go but we have just got to keep hoping that the weather will improve.
"We haven't been as badly hit as some teams by the weather and I think, when you are towards the top of the league, you will battle to get every game on."
It is a big weekend in the competition with a double header.
League leaders Baxenden are at title rivals Padiham tomorrow and then face last season's champions Clitheroe on Sunday who have quietly moved up the table into the top six.
"Padiham will be dangerous as they lost their last game and they will be itching to get back," said the Back Lane skipper.
"We beat them easily earlier this season but they are a different proposition on their home ground and their pro Kashif Siddique can win a game on his own. We need to get him out early.
"And Clitheroe aren't the force they were last year but they still have dangerous players in their side.
"I think, if every side gets the two games in this weekend, it will cut down the number of teams who will challenge for the title.
"Clitheroe realistically need to beat us to keep up their chance while I think the title will be between us, Great Harwood, Read, Padiham and Blackburn Northern.
"The table should start sorting itself out by the end of the weekend providing there is some play."
Baxenden chairman David Clegg admitted the "dire" season has affected everyone from the top downwards in the club.
"Obviously the seniors have been frustrated, however the junior section has had a very bad run of call offs too," said the chairman. "We have Under 18s, Under 15s, Under 13s, Under 11s and Under nines and their fixtures have been devastated.
"We also use our 3rd XI as a bit of a grounding for juniors to have a taste of senior cricket, however we have completed just three games all season."
GREAT HARWOOD face a trip to bottom club Barnoldswick tomorrow and then they have a big game against Padiham on Sunday as they strive for the top spot.
Oswaldtwistle Immanuel come up against Earby and Ribblesdale Wanderers as they battle to move out of the bottom two spots.
