Ladies APA League Info

Starting Sunday, September 21, we will crank up the new Ladies league.   We will hold Ladies League every 3rd Sunday of each month.  Fees will be $24 per team with $20 a team going into a travel assist fund for the team that goes to Vegas Nationals in 2015.  Start time will be 1:00pm.  This will be a 10 month/20 match played session.

Team Handicap will be max of 13.

Team will consist of 3 to 5 players with 3 players playing each match.

We will play the 8- Ball format using the games must win chart.  Members must have 10 matches played in the last 2 years in the 8 Ball format.

All players must be from the same league area.

Standard coaching rules apply.

We are hoping for 2 slots for the National Event

Providing we have two slots ½ the pot and one slot will go to the high point winner and ½ the pot will go to the second slot which will be determined by a playoff of all remaining teams.

If for some reason we only have one slot there will be a playoff between all teams after the high place winner and a final of the winner of that playoff and the 1st place team.

 

Masters League will start back on September 14, 2014.  We will again play 2 times a month on the 2nd and 4th Sunday every month.  Again, we will play the Master format.  This is open to all players high or low handicap. It is a great way to play the best players and learn special tips from them.  Start putting your teams together and email me or call to let me know your team will be playing so I can start building your division.

 
 

NEWS FLASH 

 

Qualifier Boards:   We will start back up on boards in September. These winners will play the Regional tournament first week of March and winners will play in the National Tournaments in Vegas in 2015.
 
At this time the charge is $160 per board.  Max players per board 8 and Min. players per board 4.  We will also allow boards to be played and purchased by skill levels 8 & 9 in 9 Ball and skill levels 7 in 8 Ball.  We are working on a special cost for players playing on boards and will have more info on that in the next couple of weeks.

Double Jeopardy Formats - We will be setting up new formats for the Fall Session.  We will introduce 8 Ball Double Jeopardy, 9 Ball Double Jeopardy, and redoing the 8 & 9 Ball Double Jeopardy.  This will give players a chance of playing every one on their roster and offering two chances at the LTC's in 2015.  If your team plays in the County Area and in the Tampa City Area this will give your team a chance to qualify in 2 LTC's.  Doubling your chance at the Vegas trip.  Working on this now.  Call or email me if you are interested.

 

We now have the pleasure of letting everyone know that the old Bulls Club on Fowler Ave will be opening under new a owner.  They plan on having 10 great 9 foot tables and will have a full bar.  Every thing is in place and they are redoing the inside of The Club now.  They hope to open for our Fall Session.   We will keep you informed on the progress of our newest location.  UPDATE:  With some construction difficulties it looks like the Grand Opening will be delayed to the end of September.  I have several teams looking to play there but will start off play at different locations and will be allowed to move their team there when they open.

 
 

It looks like we will have our Fall Session Meeting on August 31 with place and time to be announced.  We will introduce these new formats and will let you know of the plans to redo our Travel Assist Fund and the Payback Fund now offered.  We are also looking into new dates for our LTC's in May, 2015.  We are working on improving the league with each session and if you have any ideals you would like to share please let me know.
