I long last have decided to retire from APA and have sold the league to Janette Lee, the black widow, and Misty and Jason Dusel, league operators from NY. They will be moving here in July and will take over for the Fall Session and will be looking forward to putting more teams and host locations in place. They have some great ideals to grow the league back to its full team count and even larger than it was with Dick and me. I am sorry I have let the league down since Dick's death but even though you all are my APA family things were just not the same. I love all of you and want what is best for everyone. I feel it is time for new knowledge and new energy for the league. I know this is the best move for the league and look forward to watching the league grow with all the new changes. I want to thank Mike, Dawn, and Carl for all their help in keeping me going and to all of you for hanging in there and helping out. You can still contact me and I will still be in the office until the take over the first of September. After the change over I will still be around and seeing you all from time to time. I just won't be involved with league business. More info on this will come to the web site as time grows closer.
In the APA, Everyone Can Play & Anyone Can Win!

PLAYERS - Our area is one of the few left that the host location opens tables for us and you do not pay for table time, yet teams complain that each team does not have a practice table. I got a note that there were 8 teams on league night and only 6 tables. Guess What, that meant only 3 tables were needed for league play and 2 tables were given out for practice, That is great. We have some locations the teams are lucky to get 1 table for practice and other location there are NO extra tables. Feel lucky your table time is FREE. If you need a table to practice on go and RENT one. Thank the host location they give you a table. Also, half time drinks are a bonus, most locations do not give half-time drinks or have a drink min. We have gotten spoiled and need to see things from a business point of view. Thank You
Additional UPComing SCHEDULE
7/4/15 - July 4th Holiday
We will be putting in new changes for Summer session and Sessions to come. I will post them here as they come about. The first change is you will notice the number of weeks Summer session has been extended with showing one playoff for all divisions as we will be going to a Tri Cup Tournament at the end of the session. A lot of counties have already moved to tri-cups This is something that the National Office has incorporated for all areas in the Country. With one week playoffs we will qualify them the same, but the round one winners would advance to the tri-cup. So all divisions will play a playoff with the 1st place team playing a wildcard team and the 2nd and 3rd place team will play each other. The high point team at the end of the session will automatically advance to the tri-cup and the winning teams of the playoffs will advance to the tri-cup eliminating the reason for a second playoff. This will qualify 3 teams to the tri-cup for those divisions.The Summer Tri-Cups (like a small LTC) will be held September with winners going to the LTC. All money now in the payback fund will be awarded at the tri-cups. This will make all teams play to the best of their abilities to get in the money and win their chance to the LTC at the end of the pool year. Should prevent a lot of sandbagging players.
