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:

I believe you may have misinterpreted the sanctioning policy.  Players must pay a sanction fee
for each league but not each division within a single league.  For example, if your league has
five divisions (Monday – Friday) and a player wants to play in all five, he/she will only be
required to pay one sanction fee because it’s the same league (i.e. same league number).  
However, if they want to play in your league on Monday night and the Bath Pool League on
Wednesday night, they must pay a sanction fee to each one.  In many areas, this has led to
smaller leagues in close proximity to combine into one larger league with multiple divisions.
The team from That Other Place will be playing at The Ramada until further notice.
Anyone not playing at least 6 weeks to date is on the Subs Stat Sheet.

Anyone needing a sub or another regular player for the second half of the season should let me know
. About 3 players have approached me and would like to sub or play regular for the remainder of the season.
We have just had the 10 week cut-off date to add new subs but I can approve on an individual basis, if needed.

Remember - envelopes must be delivered to The Village Inn by 2 PM on Saturday.

Please, take a picture of the scoresheet,
before you put it in the envelope and close enough so I can read it.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Standings and stats are updated for week #21 (3/19). Use whatever week # you
want on the weekly envelope. I'll figure it out. It's screwed up and it's my fault.

The last weeks' position round will be based on Handicapped Standings this
year. Going forward, all future position rounds will be based on Scratch
The year-end tournament will be held on April 11th - as usual at the Village Inn.
Anyone interested must have 5 weeks of league play to be eligible. I'm planning
on having three divisions (A, B and C) this year. A cue will be raffled and 100% of
the proceeds will be added to tournament prize money in each division. The
breakdown for players in each division will be posted next week.

Also, prize money pay-outs for league standings will be updated this week.
We have finally made the move to switch from the BCAPL to the ACS sanctioning
league. This will not make any difference to the majority of you but, there will be
a few changes:
  • The league sanctioning fee will now be $10 instead of $15. Anyone who has paid
    $15 for this year will have $5 returned to them. The money will be given to the
    captains for distribution to their team.
  • We made this change mainly because the BCAPL made a policy change this year
    that would affect the Bath players also playing in the Corning League - they had to
    pay $15 for each league. We can't change the fact that they have to pay twice, but
    at least now, they only have to pay $10 for the Corning League.
  • Any players anticipating going to Vegas to play in the BCAPL Singles Tournament
    can still do so by buying a BCAPL Associate Membership for $25. See the BCAPL
    website. No minimum weeks of play required.
  • I now have rule books and sanction cards but at this point in the season, I'll hand
    the out at the year-ending tournament. Remember, we are using BCAPL rules this
    year as we have for the past couple of years.

Those of you who deal with me on tip installation should note that some prices will be
going up. Kamui tip installation will be $35; Moori tip installation will be $30; I will now be
offering Morakami tip installation for $25.

I have not been able to get a decent quantity discount for Kamui tips and Moori are
sometimes hard to find and when you do find them, many are counterfeit. I still stock both
of these brands, but I only will be stocking a very few of each. Although I haven't tried a
Morakami tip, I understand that the Morakami Black tips are comparable to the Kamui
Black and the Morakami Brown tips are comparable to Moori tips. These tips are readily
available and I can get decent quantity discounts. If you use Kamui or Moori tips, try the
Morakami's for a month and if you don't like them, I'll install your preference for the
difference in price.

I also have some Morakami chaulk in stock to try for awhile. It's supposed to be
comparable to Kamui - $3.00/pc in blue only.
