This week we caught up to one of the games that Department of Defence played ahead. There are still several weeks until the next game they played ahead. For this reason the standings are not official.
I have had nothing but problems over the last month with my vehicle. I have been getting it back for a day or two at a time and then I have to put it back in the shop. My latest is an overheating transmission. Hopefully, this will be fixed while I am at Convention for American Legion. And keep my fingers crossed that this is the last of a bad situation.
Standings are still available right here until the big transfer to Mohave County Pool Players. The charity league standings will always be posted to the site if received from a league official. A printed version is being looked at for mailing once a month.
Good luck and I'll see you on the tables.
It's that time again. In the name of a great player from this area, John "Sporty" Morton, we donate half the entry fee for a veterans charity. This years charity will be Fisher House. This is for the families of ceterans to stay while there loved one is getting treatment. We now have one in Arizona now down in Tucson. This year Mr. Lucky's has said they would return the greens fees, $5, plus an aditional $2 to the pot because this is a chairy event. This will raise the pot considerably. The entry will be $20 with a $5 greens fees. It will be double elimination but the race is still to be determined based on the number of entries. As always, the goal is to finish by 9 PM so people can see the fireworks. Mr. Lucky's will be opening at 10 AM to give us some time to practice before the 11 AM start. That gives us a good 10 hours of play.
Are you ready for the challenge? Good luck and I'll see you on the tables.
June first was the first day of the year as far as BCAPL and ACS are concerned. ACS has said that we can use this season for last year, 2015-2016, or we can apply it to next years season, 2016-2017. This is because it fell overlapping the two years. BCAPL took a different approach. They said all game played by May 31st would count towards the 2015-2016 season and all game played after that would count towards the 2016-2017 season. What does this mean to us the players? It means your sanction fees were due June 1st. According to the rules, you will have three weeks to get sanction fees paid. After that your name will appear in red on the site and you will not be allowed to play any more games.
Nationals for BCAPL are July 20th thru the 30th. Will you be there? Good luck and I'll see you on the tables.
The End of Season is upon us. This year the Elks Lodge has offered to cook us Roast Beef, potatoes, vegetable, roll and desert. The tournament will be on Saturday and the banquet will be on Sunday. All players with at least 6 weeks of play, the RSVP is from an old season, will eat for free. All guests and players with less than 6 weeks will have to pay $6. Not bad for a $10 meal. Sixty eight people are qualified for the free dinner, but the most we usually get is 50 with guests. We currently have 39 players and 18 guests for a total of 54 RSVPs. Sheets will continue to go out for the people that missed the last RSVP sheet. So you will be able to sign up for the banquet for the next few weeks also.
Good luck and I will see you on the tables.
