Is case you missed it, there was an update to the standings for the BCAPL/ACS Tuesday Night league. There was a forfeit that needed to be scored and a score sheet that was missed somehow. These two score sheets as well as another corrections we made this week. Are now added in to the standings and available @ KIngmanPoolPlayers.com.
Soon I will be leaving on vacation and several other trips required by SAL and non-profits we are involved in, I will be unavailable most days until Monday the 21st of November. That being only a three day week it will even be harder to reach me as customers will be beating down my door at that point.
The new phone line is working. (928) 757-0739. You can leave a message anytime you like and I will get it to the person that needs it. I can forward voice messages and faxes on to the people that need them by email. The number will also ring through to Mark's cell phone on Mondays From 9 AM to 9 PM. On Tuesday the number will ring to my cell phone, Scott doesn't have a cell but I'll pass along the info. And on Friday, It will call Helen for the Service Clubs Charity Pool League of Kingman. This should help if you need to get a hold of the person running the league. You only have to remember one number and can reach everybody.
The standings have been updated and missing information has been put in. Poke and hope showed on the team standings but none of their players showed in the player standings. Those corrections have been made and now all players can see how they are doing. Sorry to the players of Poke and Hope if they felt left out or abandoned.
As you may have seen there was a team with more weeks than was possible. The BCAPL reporting system, LeagueSys, can accidentally add a score sheet twice if the internet fails or slows down when you hit the save button. When this happens we can't tell where it is that the sheet is entered wrong. We have to get the system administrator to check for us and then go back and take out the doubled score sheet. This is why the scores were not correct. Remember, the scores are not official until one game past the half. And also, that there are makeup games to be played.
Another issue, is with the handicap. Players playing for the first time should take their first night score divided by four and that becomes their handicap for the first week. When we have a Casper playing for a missing player, Casper should get the missing players handicap. If the team has several players that could be missing or it is not possible to tell the missing persons handicap, because they are new or something similar, we use the same rule as for a new player mentioned above.
I hope this clears up the scores and the scoring. Remember I will be gone for 9 days around Halloween so there will be no update on the website until I return. And I hope to see all of you on the tables soon.
Several errors were found in last weeks standings. Mostly, little mistakes like captain's names and charities. Mark had two standings because he subbed on another team. Those have been added together and now show him only once in the standings. This should catch us all up. If there are any other mistakes, please make a note on this weeks score sheet so it can be corrected.
At the end of the month I will be on vacation, so the standings will also be behind at that time until I can get back and catch them up. This is why it is so important we make sure and get all corrections done before I have to leave. Otherwise the could be forgotten by the time I return.
Good Luck and I will see you all on the tables.
So have you heard we lost another team. BHC Toros, which we postponed the league a week to add to the league, dropped out and made us have to have forfeits. My vote, don't come back, because you aren't going to make me do extra work again. Teams with no consideration for what the league does for them should not be allowed to play. This is not for me to decide but you. We should place a rule for teams that continually come and go, and there have been a few. It cost the league in extra packets and reprinted schedules. And delays our start.
Paul seem to think the league has a big problem, stats. We have been through a couple secretaries now, and I think both have done a wonderful job. So this makes it an issue with the website, or me. Now each season we pay for the website hosting. We could just turn that off and go back to printed stats. This would save the league $150 a year. Or, would it? The cost of paper and printer ink, copies, or even the gas to run them around. This is up to you. This is your league. Vote at the meeting about this issue. Answer once and for all Paul's question as to how the league stats should be dispersed.
Remember I will be on vacation in another couple weeks and there will be no one to post to the website. I will have to catch up when I get back. Thanks for understanding, this has been and will continue to be a very busy year for me promoting Kingman, Mohave County, and the Son's of the American Legion.
