FRONT PAGE NEWS 

Life is too short! So: KISS slowly, LAUGH insanely, LOVE truly & FORGIVE quickly.   

I will be working on the web site redoing and making changes in the next couple of weeks.  Calendar will be updated.  I had a meeting with our Boards and our Division Reps Friday night to go over some of the problems out there.  One of the issues was my communications with my players.  Updating the web, qualified teams falling below the 50% mark in their division, Tournaments, and up coming events with other issues being discussed.  If you have any problems please contact your division rep so they can get the info to me and we can figure out needed changes.  I will be putting a handicap review committee together to see how we can control sandbagging players better.   I will have some of your peers out there watching what teams are sandbagging and not marking defensive shots.   We have a few team that mark every missed shot as defense and other teams that don't know when to mark them and when not to so they just do not mark any.  I have a few teams that have forgotten what sportsmanship is all about and they will be getting notices on their players attitudes and conduct. 

 
 
 

 I will be out of office 3/11 and 3/12 for minor surgery and will not be able to answer texts, email or phone messages until 3/13 or 3/14.  You will be able to contact Mike Almond at 813-503-5402 or Carl Marks at 813-727-804-1283 or Dawn at 13-786-6149 for questions on the league.  Thanks, Pat

Required Rules/Info for Various Formats

  

We have started the 8 & 9 Ball Scotch Doubles league on 2nd and 4th Saturday late afternoon, 5:00 pm so grab your partner and make sure you have a total handicap of 10 or less and play in 8 &/or 9 Ball.  This is for a slot to the Vegas Nationals in April. Hurry and get on board to win the travel assist pot and your slot to the Tournament.


  

We have Masters League on the 2nd and 4th Sunday.   Any one interested in playing on a team or putting a team in give us a call at the office 813-977-1499 or text or call me on cell 813-503-5401. This is open to all players, just remember there is no handicap and we play the US Am format. A lot of mid skill players play in this where they have stiffer competition and learn a lot from our high skill level players.
