Latest News

Ready, set, go!
Oct 23, 2017, 2:11 pm

Schedule is up online, on paper, and in the binders. I just need to add one more thing to binders and then I'll drop them off at the Oasis for pickup - by 5:00pm today.



Welcome to the 20187-2018 Season!
Oct 19, 2017, 5:34 pm

Okay, bit by bit I'm getting things set for the new season. The first games will be on Thursday, October 26th (except for the Dragons - the computer picked you to have the first bye week of the season - more practice time!).

Here's what's been done so far for the new season:

  • Schedule has been posted on the website! (click on 'Game Schedule' to the left). Once on the schedule page, you can filter just your team, or any team, and you can sort it from either past games or future games first. The schedule repeats itself for the second-half of the season, just at the opposite bar.
  • Tackle Box is back, the Rack Pack is on the move again - now at the Down Lo, and Paul Thurman has his 'I Cue' team at the Down Lo as well
  • Beer frame and top shooter pages are reset
  • Team payments have been received from Duffy's, I Cue, Playa's, and the Dragons - thank you! All the rest are due the 1st or 2nd night. After that, late penalties ($28 each player as compared to $20 for on-time players). As players are paid for, their names will start appearing under their team roster - click on 'Teams & Standings' tab, then click on the team name to see the paid roster list. Not there = not paid, so talk to your captain if you should be listed.

Coming soon, next on the list:

  • Update/modify/clarify rules from changes at the Captain's Meeting (concession of game vs forfeiting game, etc.)
  • Then, upload rules to 'Downloads' section of website, as well as run-off paper copies for the captains
  • Binders - fill with score sheets, rules, schedules, rosters, etc. and leave at Oasis to be picked up by the captains - hopefully by Monday, October 23rd
  • Post schedule at Oasis and other bars
  • Is that it?

So bottom line - pool starts on Thursday October 26th - check the schedule online to see where you should be. Be sure to pay your captain so he can pay me the ridiculously low price of just $20, not the crazy $28 each. Captains: Talk to your bar owners/managers and collect the $40 sponsorship fee during the first 2 weeks as well.

If you think of anything else, or if you have any questions, let me know - (530) 966-5632 or

Good luck this season!


CMPL 2017-2018
Sep 16, 2017, 1:03 am


We've added at least one new team - Captain Kim Jong-un and his six generals. According to DPRK press releases, the 'Ballistic Bitches' are the bomb and not to be messed with. Get your passports in order.


Dang, that was another fast Summer. School has started, football has kicked off, hockey is just around the corner, Costco has Christmas decorations out - it must be time for Chico Mens Pool League 2017-2018!


It's time to start things off with the annual Captain's Meeting, our always fun meeting to discuss issues and fixes for the upcoming season. It will happen a week later this year due to the Chico Summer League playoffs - 2 days from now:

Thursday, October 12th, 7:00pm, at Duffy's Tavern, downtown Chico.

We've lost a few teams over the past few years - Empire Club in Durham, and now Shenanigan's. Tackle Box wants to come back, and Paul Thurman is forming a new team with his boys at the Down Lo. Shenanigans/Rack Pack is looking to go to the Down Lo as well. So I'm assuming we'll have 13 teams this year at a minimum. I haven't spoke to all the captains so there might be a team out there that I don't know about. But as it stands, it will essentially be the Down Lo vs. Oasis Pool League. Paul and Gary are heading Down Lo as the 4th and 5th underground team, and I assume the same 5 teams at Oasis. And the 3 'other' bars - Duffy's, Tackle Box, and Eagles. Personally, I loved the travelling to different bars, even different cities, 'on the road'. So to have 13 teams within 1 mile kind of sucks, but the pool hall options are limited. Quackers is there, but the same old story - management doesn't want to commit to a league team, assumingly because of the "extravagant expenses" of a $40 sponsor fee and a round of drinks per week. Whatever, I've given up on that place, even though it's a prime location. So it is what it is - a scheduling nightmare of Down Lo and Oasis teams.

So Captains, start getting your rosters ready. I'll have downloadable roster sheets available on this website soon. The cost should be the same ridiculously-low rate of $20 per season, per player. A savings of over 90% of the other weekly leagues and their 'green fees' paid every week. Again, just with the free beer we get each week, that alone adds up to over $60. So even if you never played a game you'd get 20-something free drinks for 20 bucks. Um, logic - where are you? And yet every year we have players and teams unpaid for weeks. Again, ridiculous, but somehow sickly amusing.

So again, Captain's meeting - Thursday, October 12th, 7:00pm, Duffy's. All captains are required to attend. Captains can bring an assistant, but when it comes to voting, only one vote per team. If you can bring a roster and team payment to the meeting, I will buy you (and me) a shot, right there, on the spot. 

Non captains: talk to your captain about what you want differently for the upcoming season so they can properly represent their team and the league.

Captains and players can contact me at anytime - (530) 966-5632, text or call. Or via email:

See you then!


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.
