Wow, that was a fast summer!
It's almost October, which means it's almost time for Thursday night Pool League!
We first need to get things in order for the new season. We need to find out what bars are in/out, collect payments, make any rule changes/additions, argue for an hour or two over completely trivial items no matter how logical or illogical they may be, see who can talk the loudest - you know, the Captains Meeting! That meeting will be held this year at the Chico Eagles Club at the corner of 20th street and Fair/Mulberry Streets, October 6th. It will be bingo night in the hall next door so plenty of food and of course booze will be available. The fun all starts at 7:00pm. Each team can have a maximum of 2 delegates attend (ideally the true captain and his co-captain, or other knowledgeble teammate). Any measures that needs to be voted on will include just one vote from that team/bar/captain. Captains and/or delegates not in attendance will not cast a vote.
I don't see the price per player changing much - it should be still the ridiculously low price of $20 for the SEASON - which could be 20 something nights of pool, 3 games per night, and a free beer each night. It makes me chuckle each time I type this. The one free beer/well-drink each night alone would be more than $60! This entire SEASON price is about 2.5 NIGHTS of other leagues in town - I'm just saying, it's dirt cheap, so please don't ever complain. And if it does go to a vote to raise it, it will still be around 90% less than similar leagues. If you could please turn in this small donation to your team captain in a timely matter, I would appreciate it. Other leagues do very well collecting on a nightly basis, about 25 nights or times during the season. I don't see how it can be so difficult in paying $20 or so just one time for a season and be done with it.
Get a receipt from your captain that you paid - I will be making sure all payments from the captain to the League include a written receipt. In the off chance that I'm drinking when we see eachother, make sure you get a receipt from me no matter what proving your team paid. I don't want any loose strings or hurt feelings this year.
The first league night SHOULD be the 3rd Thursday of October, so October 20th, 2016. The rest of the schedule is still up in the air until I find out how many teams are going to be active this year.
Let your captain know of any complaints or suggestions he can bring to the meeting, or feel free to call me directly (966-5632) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be kept confidential, if necessary.
That's all for now. Check the website (chicomenspoolleague.com) regularly for any changes/updates.
Again, 2016-2017 CMPL Captains Meeting - Thursday night, October 6th, 7:00pm, Eagles Hall.
