2015-2016 Chico Mens Pool League

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 It will be kept confidential, if necessary.

That's all for now. Check the website ( regularly for any changes/updates.

Again, 2016-2017 CMPL Captains Meeting - Thursday night, October 6th, 7:00pm, Eagles Hall.




Just a Reminder...

Just a friendly reminder...tomorrow!

The Tackle Box owner decided today (Tuesday) that if we brought our tri-tip and pot luck dishes it would be too much competition for his snack bar and the event wouldn't be profitable enough for him. Plus the kegs of beer we buy from the bar is generally/historically bought at cost which reduces his beer sale profits - it would have been great for the tip-receiving bartenders, but not the bar itself. I can't afford to feed everyone through his snack bar with just the $300 I have budgeted each year - insert gratitude for Mike Clarke and Chico Locker & Sausage HERE. So he decided this afternoon to pull out and cancel the event at his Tackle Box. 

As the Oasis, Down Lo, Empire, and Eagles know, the event is not meant to be a purely profitable 'gift' for the bar. It's still profitable, probably more than a standard Saturday early afternoon, but it's more of a way for the bar to get exposure to the 200 players and their guests and the guest's family and friends. As the annual sole host, it's also a way for that bar to thank ALL the players, not just the home team, who make the bar's Thursday and Tuesday nights throughout the league seasons profitable almost year-round. So anyways, Tackle Box is out.

Stacy, who's been around these blocks a few times, took this opportunity with open arms and would like to invite you and your friends to the Oasis Bar & Grill this Saturday afternoon from 1:00pm - 6:00pm or so. Everything is exactly the same - free beer, free tri-tip with pot luck dishes, free pool, trophies, awards, and of course the famous raffle - just back over to the Oasis. This also means more tables for open play and tournaments, so we'll look at this disapointment as a positive for the players.

Be sure to thank the Oasis, and of course the Oasis bartenders who will be raking in the tips now, by purchasing drinks and food outside of the free ones provided. Buy Stacy, your teammate, Meredith, your friend, the champion Bulldogs, the random girl at the bar plenty of shots, purple hooters, Beam & Cokes, and those delicious Oasis french fries. They are accommodating us last minute.

Sorry for any inconvenience - we are going to lock down these issues at the next Captain's meeting. The Tackle Box will not be in our normal rotation of party host bars for at least 3 years, if they want to do this in the future at all. It's ultimately up to them.

So again, thanks for your patience and we'll see you on Saturday - at the Oasis, 1:00pm!

Captain's Quarters

Dec 14, 2010, 10:48 pm

If you are the visiting team, please make sure to check more than just the score - verify that all the names are right, the beer frame is filled in correctly, and watch for 8-ball break and runs not counted by the home captain. There has been a few instances lately that the run outs are not being recorded by the home captain. It is their responsibility to put them down, but it also the visiting captain's responsibility to confirm the entire scoresheet. It's not easy to go back and change one stat for a game a few weeks ago.



 President's Corner
A temporary 'Statistics' page work around to see the whole list of players on one page: Click on green 'Statistics' tab in left hand column, then 1) select a team from the filter selector (any team) 2) now go back and select 'all teams' 3) now you can sort any heading and have every player show up, not just the first 100 players on the current page. A possible fix is coming.
