There may be some questions regarding a double-hit. Here's a super slow-motion video of a double-hit that you may
find helpful in understanding the foul:

Team prize money pay-out has been posted on the Stats page. Those of you who have played in past years will
note a significant decrease in the prize pool, ultimately affecting team prize money. This year we had 22 teams
(88 people paying $6/week for 23 weeks) versus last year's 25 teams (100 people paying $6/week for 27
weeks). What it boils down to is about a 30% decrease in income from 2014 to 2015. Each teams prize money
was cut by approximately 30%.

A balance sheet for the league will be available for inspection at the tournament on April 11th.

Furthermore, I hope that you all can see the effects of losing a couple of teams from one year to the next. We
really must try and fill the empty spots in our available bars. See the list below and pass the word regarding
openings in the league
  • The Green Shingles only had 3 teams this year - we need to fill a 4th
  • The Ramada only had 2 teams this year - we need to fill 2 teams
  • The Country Pub only had 1 team - we need to fill a 2nd
  • The Legion only had 1 team - we need to fill a 2nd
  • The Village Inn only had 3 teams - we need to fill a 4th
  • I talked to The VFW regarding 2 teams. Anyone that goes there should work on them to put
    together 2 teams.
  • The new TOP will have a pool table. Anyone going there should mention a pool team
  • Joe Carey's additional location across from the Site will have a table, enough for 2 teams.
In a separate matter, there is a benefit tournament coming up for
Alyssa Hyer, who was mauled by a dog. Please, take a look at the
poster by clicking on the link. Her father, Ray Hyer, plays in both
the Bath and Corning leagues.

We had a very good turn-out for our year-end tournament this year and I believe that
having three divisions was a positive step. A little more tweaking may be required next
year - especially in the "A" division. I believe that a 2-game spot may be a little too much
for some of the higher ranked A's to be giving to the rest of that division.

I watched some very good shooting by "B" players. Any of those player's that ended up
cashing could have played in the "A" division on that particular day and held their own.

The "C" division was also very competitive. No one stood out as dominating, although
Art Kinne ran through the winner's side of the bracket to win that division.

Jeff Thomas won the raffle for the Break Cue.

Below are the tournament results. We'll see y'all in the Fall.
