The next Jack N Jill will be May 4 after the Mandatory Session Meeting is over at Baluka's. Meeting set for 1:00 with tournament following.
We will then hold the LTC for Jack N Jill on June 21, 2014 with place to be announced. This is the event for all those who have won a spot from all the tournament we have held.
James' Place is offering FREE pool play anytime to all APA Players from now until the LTC's in 9-Ball. This gives you an opportunity to play and practice on small tables like you will play in Vegas.
May 4, 2014 we will have the New Summer Session Mandatory Meeting. You will hear what to expect for the Summer Session, changes, pick up your MVP package and your new session package for first week of play. Time will be 1:30 for meeting at Balukas and tournament to follow. We may also have 8 & 9 Qualifier Boards that day after the meeting for those who want to play and a Jack N Jill Tourn.
We are thinking about a Tuesday night Double Jeopardy League for the Brandon/County area. Tell us what you think and let us know if you are at all interested in Tuesday night or another night. Double Jeopardy is where you play 8 Ball and 9 Ball on the same night. This works well for players who can only play 1 night a week and love to play both formats.
We will be starting a new in-house 8-Ball league at Brandon Billiards and will continue with our 8 Ball in-house on Thursday at Baluka's. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text or call me at 8135035401
|LTC Information for all teams. |
Tournament information to go to the LTC's straight from the rule book.
Your Spring Roster is your Roster for the LTC.
No Male 1s Allowed in 9- Ball and No Male 2s Allowed in 8-Ball.
Number of scores your Handicap must be based on: in order to go to LTC, a player must have a skill level based on at least 10 actual League match scores in the format in which they are advancing. The 10 scores must be attained by the end of the Spring Session in the League year corresponding to the Team Championship in which the player is advancing.
In order to be considered a full-fledged member of a team and eligible to go to the LTC, a player must have played at least 4 times with the team in the Spring Session.
At the beginning of the this session we had changed the 4 times play with the team to 6 as a trial basis. With byes and forfeits teams are having it has made it difficult for some teams to reach this goal and therefore we will cancel this out and go back to the requirements as stated in the rule book to 4. Of course this applies to players who have 10 matches and have an established skill level. New players to APA will still need to have the required 10 matches so they have an established handicap. They will need to have the 4 matches to be part of the team and play in the play offs. If a new player has 8 matches played and your team is in the playoffs and you figure they will get the other 2 matches in the playoffs be aware that if a team does not show up or has forfeits your player may not get to play and not get those 2 matches needed, so plan ahead.
There are more rules for the LTC so you need to read the rule book under Tournament Information & Rules to be sure you have everything needed to advance.
We will be heavy scrutinizing qualified teams that do not meet the 50% rule of their handicaps and for loss of eligibility.
