Player's Fees

It is time again for the charity league end of season banquet and tournament.  Saturday morning we will be moving in the second table, setting up for the tournament, and getting ready for awards.  The Elks Lodge opens at 11:00 AM so come in, sign up, and get some practice.  The tournament will start at 12 Noon and the entry fee is $5.00.  The league adds in $100 for the players.  Double elimination with one game on each side is the regular setup for this tournament.

Dinner will start at 5:00 PM on Sunday followed by awards and a meeting for the players.  This meeting is for informing the players what has been going on in the league.  If a captains meeting needs to be called this is the time to let everyone know.  If changes are not needed then we will continue with next season set the same as it is now.

Since I am tied up with the Fair until The end of September, we will have to start then or have another person take over for me this next season.

This was a great season with lots of teams.  But VFW 2555 has decided not to be part of the league.  With two tables down this only make it possible for us to field 12 teams.  This will shorten the league to 22 weeks and of course will give use a lot less money to give away.  If we could get a couple more tables we could move to one season a year with the summer off.  That is the hardest time to get teams anyway.

Good luck and I'll see you on the tables.

This years tournament was one of the smallest since the start. Amazing since we spent more time and money marketing this one then the others.  There were quite a few from Kingman, a good little group from Bullhead CIty, and a few from Lake Havasu City.  At the End there was three from Lake Havasu City in the money, one from Kingman, and two from Bullhead City.

With nineteen players we payed six places.  The pauout was as follows: 1st Brian Wolfe $160, 2nd Tyler Fleishman $60, 3rd Anthony Perretta $43, 4th John Jenks $30,  5th Dale Vanhanselaere $15, 6th Scotty Mullins Jr. $15 and $190 went to our charity, Fisher House.  The original pot was also $190 but Mr. Lucky's gave back the greens fees plus $2 per player adding another $133 to the pot bringing the total up to $323. 

Congratulations to Brian, this is the second time in a row he has won this tournament and he let the wold know it when it happened.  After the 8-ball dropped he gave a hoot and hollar they might have heard back in Bullhead City.

Thanks to everyone for making this tournament a success.  One more year at Mr. Lucky's and then we will be back in Kingman for our 10th anniversary.  We a currently looking for sponsors for that event because we will need to rent the Fairgrounds and bring in eight tables we rent from Las Vegas.  We would also like to add $1000 for the players.  If you are interested in sponsoring this event please call (928) 692-0739.

Below we have a time lapse video of on of the later matches between the winner, Brian Wolfe, and the 3rd place winner. Anthony Perretta, as well as some photos from the event.

Mark will be having the End of Season awards and a tournament at the Tack Shed this Saturday.  You can see the final standings by clicking here!  Look for this league to start again in August/September after the Nationals in Las Vegas.

We really didn't want to give an extension but were left no choice.  Shawn is still learning to deal with BCAPL's software and this is one of the worst parts of the job.  I am unable to help because of an American Legion function.  So it will have to wait for next week.  If you don't know what we are talking about, let me help you out.  The BCAPL year runs from June 1st to May 31st and sanction fees were due on June 1st.  The league rules gives us three weeks to pay in full.  About half have paid but we will narrow it down and find the rest.  See you on the tables.

Because of conflicts, the End of Season Tournament and Banquet have been moved to July 16th and 17th and the Elks Lodge.  The Tournament will run most of the day Saturday so get there as soon as they open to get your practice time in.  Dinner will begin at 5:00 PM Sunday with the Awards to follow.  After the awards we will have a meeting for the next season.  So think of changes. 

The one rule that messes up everything I do is the player having to play in the first half of the season.  This only limits players and we are a charity and the more players we have the more we donate.  I have to travel 4 times a year just for the American Legion, twice more for Nationals and all this does is make me have to find players that have been devoted enough to play more that a couple times a year.  We average 50 players a week with almost that same amount of also ran players.  Lots of these only sub in their own house or for only one team.  And as we proved with last year standings this rule does not change who wins in teams or in players.  We had 7 teams last year that player someone they were not supposed to.  And it came to about 14 players scores that were erased to comply with the rule.  Not a single team moved in the rankings and only two players, 20th and 40th moved down a place.

Thanks and I'll see you on the tables.
