In the APA, Everyone Can Play - Anyone Can Win!
All Scoresheets, along with fees, were supposed to be turned in by this past Tuesday. I can not finalize the Summer standings due to missing paperwork. It's not fair to all the teams that have met this requirement. Therefore, ANY paperwork turned in after this Friday at 10pm will be marked as a forfeit for your team scores and will affect your final standings. Any teams with more than 6 forfeits are not eligible for tournaments. All money will still be due in order for your team to play the next session. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. The following teams and captains have not turned in their paperwork:
1801 - Is What It Is - Kenny Pfizenmayer
1809 - Slick Sticks - Eddie Cooke
2107 - Bank Shot - Joseph Hill
2501 - U-Rack-Em - Eddie Cooke
2505 - Sorry Gotta Run - Michael Young
4307 - Sticks & Stones - Sheri Melzer
4603 - Dream Catchers - Judy Dorsey
4604 - Stroke Of Genius - Jimmy Pfizenmayer
4606 - Blind Squirrels - Andy Bennett
4804 - That'll Work - Shawn Shalaski
4806 - Low Ballz - Malik Burns
Everyone made it back safely from Vegas...with many stories....but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. There was at least one wedding, one wedding anniversary/vows renewed with Elvis...but most of all, people from our area having fun in Vegas. I have several pics of pool matches being played which will be posted shortly.
The Ladies Division Schedules are out for the first half of the year. There are 6 teams for Friday Night and 4 teams for Saturday. Also, I have a list of potential players looking to join a team but not Captain the team.
Congratulations to the 24 players who qualified to play in the October Singles Regional Tournament. Winners in that Tournament play in Vegas in 2015. The next window of opportunity is between June 16th and November 30th which will be played in March/April 2015 Regional.
Join the APA!
While some membership cards require you to be able to jump the cue ball, bank it off three rails and sink the 8-Ball blindfolded, getting an APA Membership Card is much easier.
Having fun, meeting new people and playing pool is what the APA is all about.. You don't have to be a pool shark, because in the APA -- everyone can play and anyone can win. The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association. No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly $1.5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments.
How does the APA do it? It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the amount of games a player has to win in order to capture the match. It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.
