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:

*************************************************************************
Standings and Stats have been updated for week #26. Thanks for getting the
envelopes in on time this week so I could post the final week's schedule early.
                        **********
In calculating the schedule, you may notice a team with a better record playing as the "away"
team. I had to do this because after a standard schedule calculation, there were 3 matches
playing at the Green Shingles and Main Grill. So, I had to flip some matches to a) have a table
for the match to take place and b) to have a match being played at as many locations as
possible and c) to compensate for disparities from the first position round. I have noticed one
team in particular that got switched in both position rounds - and that is the Ramada D. Your
situation is noted guys/girls and I'll do my best to make it up to you. I try and note teams and
bars that may have come out on the short end of the stick on previous position rounds and
make it up to them on the following one. The Main Grill is an example - they have four teams
playing there every week but only had one match there last position round. They were a
priority to have two matches play there this time around. I've never heard any complaining
about the position round schedule in the past - I just wanted to explain. Thanks for your
patience.  

To the team doing calculations on the back of the scoresheet regarding league income and
prize money pay-out:

There is only $600/week income (25 teams x $24 dues), not $624 as you came up with. Then,
you didn't deduct expenses for web hosting, domain name, printing envelopes, office supplies
and sunshine fund. After prize money is paid, the balance is administrative fees (my pay). Out
of that money comes taxes, bank fees, tax preparation services, pro-rated legal and recording
fees. I always have a balance sheet available upon request.

The year-end tournament will be held at The Village Inn on Saturday, April 26. More details will follow.


A couple of notes regarding the tournament and prize money:
  • Team prize money will be distributed at the tournament
  • You must have at least 3 weeks of play in the league to play in the tournament
  • Your entry fee will be based on weeks of play. For example: 5 weeks or more = $20; 4 weeks = $25; 3 weeks
    = $30
  • We will have A & B brackets as we have in the past
  • You must have at least 10 weeks of play to be eligible for individual prizes.  
                      **********
Green Shingles D  - you have a bye on this final week. Your final week's $24 dues will be taken out of
your prize money. Contact me if you want to do it differently.
                      **********
No new subs on the final position round week. You can use anyone who has played previously in the Corning
League. That includes Bath players who have previously played in Corning.
                     **********
If anyone has a photograph (preferably digital) of a deceased member of our league, please send it to me with a
few details. I'd like to start a memorial page on the website. This idea was brought up a couple of years ago and the
ball was dropped. I think that it's time to get something started.

I'm especially looking for photos of Dick Wright and Terry Bulkley.
