Week #7 Results
Dec 8, 2014, 11:04 pm

Just got the Last Call / Eagles score sheet from Terry and Jon (thanks!). They had a fairly close match, but all the rest of last week's games were pretty one-sided.

Here's how it all went down:

The aforementioned Eagles were on the road taking on the Last Call Rack Pack on December 4th. The home team was up 8-4 at the break, thanks to Matt's 3-0 hat trick. The Eagle's Craig and Jon beat Mike D. and Brian 2-0, for the road beer frame win. David Napier got the Eagles right back in it with a 3-0 win, making the score 8-7 Last Call. But the Rack Pack's Mike and Rob handled their business and each got 2-1 wins, giving the Rack Pack a 'close' 12-9 victory at home.

The Oasis Dragons were home facing the Oasis Outlaws. Jeff Brun started it off good for the Dragons getting all 3 of his games. But the Outlaws stormed back - Izzy got 3 wins, then Bulldog got 2, as did Gregg. That made it 7-5 Outlaws at the break. Mike Brandt and Kenny beat Walt and Micah in the beer frame for the Outlaw win, 2-0. Chris came back and got 2 for the Dragons to make it 7-8, but Kenny got 2 and Ricky got all 3 to make the final score 13-8 Outlaws.

The Oasis O-Team were also at home as the Down Lo Damned came over to the west side for a rumble. The O-Team came out strong and staked a 9-3 lead at the half thanks to Russ and James V.'s 3-0 wins. Steve and Rob got the beer frame from Mike and Joel, 2-1. In the bottom half the O-Team got one more 2-1 win than the Damned, which made the final score 14-7 Oasis.

In the biggest win of the week, the Down Lo Stickmen came out in force as they beat Duffy's 18-3. Cal, Brian Norman, Wheeze, and Scott all had 3-0 wins. The other 3 guys 'only' had 2-1 wins. Paul Wall and Madsack couldn't stop Kevin and Prana in the beer frame, though, as the home team lost 2-0. Wheeze thinks he had a break and run, but we were too drunk to remember for sure.

The Empire was home as it's closest CMPL neighbor, the Tackle Box, were in town for the night. In another lopsided win, the Empire knocked over the 'Box 17-4. Casey, DJ, Mike P., and Chris all had 3-0 wins. Charlie had the lone bright spot on the Tackle Box's sheet with a 2-1 victory. DJ and Curt beat the Bobs (Cody and Strobel) in the beer frame, 2-1.

Keeping the scales tipped, the Playa's of Down Lo hosted the Bankers of Oasis last week. The Playa's were up 8-4 at the beer frame thanks to Leland's 3-0 showing. Leland stayed at the table with Dave Kaplan and fought Barney and Rich for the honor. The Playa's won 2-0. In the bottom half, Kevin C got all 3 of his and the white-hot headphone-bustin' Tom LeClaire won another 3 for his club, too. The Bankers didn't have a 7th player so the home team picked up another free 3 points. Final score: 17-4 Playa's.  

Good luck next week - unless you are an Alligator Humper, you've got the bye.

Looks like a big storm is coming on Thursday this week - lots of rain and wind. Careful on the roads - ride with a SOBER buddy, especially if you're making the Midway trip.

Week #6 Results

Sorry, I've been busy with a thing called 'work' in my life. I know it sounds crazy, but I've had to prioritize it ahead of pool league for a little bit. But now with the Thanksgiving break, I've had time to catch up. Plus I've got all the score sheets, most of the rosters, almost all of the player payments, and most of the player's last names - at least enough to move on. Still, pretty bad for 2 months into the season, but it's all I can do. This HAS to change the start of next season - it's the first item on the 2015-2016 Captain's meeting agenda. Next year - "your team can not play a match until dues are in and a complete roster (first and last names) is submitted" will be up for a vote, and I'm assuming it or something similar will pass.

Stats are now up and current! See the 'President's Corner' in the top right hand column of the home page for notes on a work-around for viewing the entire list on one page, not just the first 100 and a second page for 101+, or to see and filter just your own team. Please check for accuracy and let me know of any errors. I have all the scoresheets now and can verify if something seems off. The Top Shooter list has been started for this year as well. It's early, and those standings can change dramatically this time of year, but it's up none the less. Again, you need to have competed in 75% of the total games possible (12 or more out of 18, currently - it's actually 67% but close enough this early) to be on the list. The beer frame tracker still needs to be updated, but coming soon.

Here's what happened in week #6 (sorry, I've had to skip week #5's recap):

The Eagles Club was hosting the 1st place Bulldogs at their joint on November 20th. The home bar was up 7-5 at the break thanks to Terry's 3-0 showing. Bobbo and James Skellenger beat Ty and Robbie in the beer frame 2-1. In the bottom half the 'Dogs came back strong and got 7 of the final 9 points to win in the end, 12-9. Ty got a 3-spotter to help his team get back on track in the bottom half.

The Stickmen ventured out to the Tackle Box last week. The Down Lo squad won 12-9 thanks to Cele and current top shooter Brian Norman's 3-0 wins. Jonny kept it close with a 3-0 win of his own in the final match. The 'Box also got the beer frame - Bob Cody and Garrick beat Brandon and Sundy 2-0.

The Last Call Rack Pack made the furthest possible bar-to-bar trip as they headed south to Durham to face the Empire Club. Both teams were locked in a tie going into the beer frame, 6-6. Matt and Mike of the Last Call beat Zach and DJ in the beer frame 2-0. The Empire scored big in the bottom half getting 7 of the final 9 points. Troy got all 3 in the final match to give the Empire a 13-8 win.

The Down Lo Damned were at home facing their upstairs neighbors, Duffy's. The Damned won big, 14-7. David Larabee and Cowboy Rob each had 3-0 wins to help the cause. Ed and Ice Cream did win the beer frame though as they beat Rob and Philo 2-1.

The Dragons were at home facing the Down Lo Playa's for week 6. The Playa's were up big early, 10-2, thanks to 3-0 wins from Leland and red-hot Tom Leclaire. Sid and Walt of the Dragons beat Kyle and Dave in the beer frame, 2-1. In the bottom half, Kevin and Dave kept it going with 3-0 wins of their own. Final score, Playa's 17, Dragons 4.

The Outlaws and the O-Team were locked up in an inter-bar matchup at the Oasis. Teams traded 2-1 wins in the top half for a 6-6 tie. Mike and Aaron Rooney of the O-Team beat the Outlaw's Matt Fields and Izzy for the beer frame, 2-0. Each team traded another pair of 2-1 games to make the match tied at 9, but the O-Team didn't have a 7th player so they gave the final winning 3 points to the Outlaws. Final score 12-9, Outlaws.

The Bankers had their bye week last week, the Bulldogs have the bye for December 4th.

Good luck to everyone else!

Week #4 Results
Nov 13, 2014, 5:40 pm

Here's what happened last week-

The Oasis Dragons were hosting the Last Call Rack Pack. The Dragons shot out of the gate with 2 wins from Steve H., 2 wins from Micah, and a 3-winner from Aaron Smith. So it was 7-2 Dragons three matches in. Aaron and Micah even got the beer frame against Mike D. and Kevin L., 2-1. But as crazy as it sounds, those 7 point were all the Dragons ended up with. The 'Pack went on a 12-0 run and ended the night a winner 14-7, on the road at the Oasis! Matt, Mike, Gary, and Pat all got 3-0 wins in succession from the 4th-7th spots. Whoa!

The Down Lo Damned went on the road and beat the Eagles 12-9. All the matches were of the 2-1 variety, the damned just had a few more. Even the beer frame was 2-1: David Napier and James Skellenger beat Pat and Rob for the Eagles beer frame win (FTBFW).

The Bankers and the Bulldogs were both at home at the Oasis facing each other in an Oasis duel. I'll put it this way: Mark E. and Barney each got 1 point for their club. That was it. Keith, Brennon, Dennis, and Ed each had 3-0 wins (Chris and Ty 'only' got 2 wins). The Bankers didn't have a 7th shooter so the 'Dogs got 3 free ones. Final score: Bulldogs 19, Bankers 2. Rich and Barney did get the beer frame, though - beating Steve and Robbie 2-0.

The Duffy's crew were home welcoming in the short-handed Empire Club. A couple players for the Durham team were apparently left in Durham. They still played well with 5 players, getting 9 points to Duffy's 12. Curt got a 3-0 victory for his Durhamites. Baback didn't get all 3 of his games, but one of his wins was via an (according to some spectators) amazing 8-ball break and run. Ed and that Baback guy got the beer frame, too, beating Casey and Matt Vernoga 2-1.

The Down Lo Stickmen were taking on their bar mates, the Playa's, last week. It was a close match all the way through. The Stickmen were up 7-5 at the break thanks to Cal and Brian Norman's 3-0 wins. Rusty started the night out with three of his own for the Playa's. Tom Leclaire and Dave Kaplan beat Madsack and Wheez in the beer frame 2-1. It was back and forth in the bottom half and the Stickmen got to the proverbial hill, up 10-8. Tom Leclaire had to win all 3 for his team to claim victory, and he did. Sweeping the last match gave the Playa's a close 11-10 win. 

Still no word on the Tackle Box scores as they played the Oasis O-Team at home. I still need more player's dues, bar sponsor fee, team roster, and last week's scoresheet from the Alligator Humpers. I've been under pressure from other captains and players to impose penalties, either point or monetary, since many other teams have paid themselves over a month ago. Most of those penalties are described clearly under our league rules. More information will be posted soon as it becomes available. 

The Outlaws were on the bye week last week, the Stickmen have the week off this time. Wheez said he's ready to play for money - we'll be at the Down Lo tonight if you want to join us when you're done. Paul Wall's birthday is Friday I believe. Hard to believe he's 41. Good luck this week!

Week #3 Results
Nov 6, 2014, 7:01 pm

Congratulations are in order - two of the coolest people in town are now married, and also two of the best pool players in town now share the last name - Congratulations to Kevin and Kelly Cibart! Despite the rumors, no, a pool table was not used as an altar, and Kevin did not chalk the ring before slipping it on Kelly's finger. Now the rumor of them spending the night shooting pool in southern California on their honeymoon night has not been confirmed nor denied. 

 

Here's my attempt at a brief recap of last week's matchups:

Stickmen versus Empire, at the Down Lo. 3-0 winners: Brian Norman. Beer frame winners: Paul and Scott. Beer frame losers: Chris and DJ. Final score: 13-8 Stickmen

Next.

Duffy's versus the Oasis O-Team, at Duffy's. 3-0 winners: Brian Vignon, Prana, and Joel Russo. Beer frame winners: Ed and Prana. Beer frame losers: Mike and Stacy. Final score: 12-9 Oasis O-Team

Next.

Bulldogs versus the Playa's, at Oasis. 3-0 winners: Brenon, Larry, Dennis. Dennis also had 2 break and runs in his match! Beer frame winners: Ed and Rob. Beer frame losers: Kyle and Dave. Final score: 12-9 Oasis Bulldogs

Next.

Bankers versus the Oasis Outlaws, at Oasis. 3-0 winners: Greggy Bear, Kenny. Beer frame winners: Bankers - Mark E. and Russ. Beer frame losers: Greggy Bear and Ricky. Final score: 16-5 Oasis Outlaws

Next.

Eagles versus the Tackle Box, at Eagles. 3-0 winners: David Napier, Donny, Kent. Beer frame winners: Tackle Box - Cody and Joe. Beer frame losers: Mike D and Craig. Final score: 12-9 Eagles. Tackle box still needs to pay the remainder of their dues, turn in a roster, and pay the bar sponsorship fee.

Next.

Down Lo Damned versus the Oasis Dragons, at Down Lo. 3-0 winners: Stephen W., Krad. Beer frame winners: Dragons - Steve Hambek and Aaron Smith. Beer frame losers: Rob C and Steve McGrill. Final score: 11-10 Dragons.

The Rack Pack were on the bye week. The Outlaws are on the bye this week.

Good luck.

Week #2 Results
Oct 29, 2014, 1:02 am

Here's what happened in Week #2:

Da' Eagles were on the road visiting the News & Review's 2014 Best of Chico 'Best Bar'. As we all know, that bar is, of course, hands down, Duffy's Tavern. The teams were tied at 6-6 at the break. Evan got all 3 of his for Duffy's to lead off the night, and Bobbo got all 3 of his for the 2nd week in a row. COX and Mike Daniels beat Kevin and Baback 2-1 for the beer frame win (here out known as 'FTBFW'). Robin shot in the 5th spot and got all 3 of his, the first one by way of an 8-ball break-and-run. Bobby and James cleaned it up to give the Eagles a 12-9 road victory.

 The Rack Pack of Last Call were home as they welcomed in the Bankers of Oasis. The Rack Pack were up big in the top-half as they held an 8-4 lead going into the beer frame. 'Packer Mike Dowd got all 3 of his to help the cause. Matt and Rob beat the Banker's George and Mark Edwards for the... wait, FTBFW. The 'Pack doubled their first half output with another 8 points out of 9 in the bottom-half to reach a final score of 16-5. Bryan got 2, Pat got 3, and Matt got 3 to finish it (and the Bankers) off. 

The Stickmen were on the road visiting the Oasis Bulldogs. The 'Dogs were up 7-5 at the break thanks to Keith's 3-0 win, one of them via an 8-ball break-and-run. Scott and Sundy lost the beer frame to Captain Steve and Robbie, 2-1. Still in this thang, those thuggish Stickmen held on thanks to Paul's 2 wins. Robbie got 2 for the Oasis which got the Bulldogs on the proverbial hill, 10-8. Some guy named Scott showed up and came through with 3 wins and the last second come-from-behind win. Final score Stickmen 11, Bulldogs 10. 

The Playa's were down low at the Down Lo taking on the formidable Oasis Outlaws. The two teams were tied 6-6 after four matches. Leland got all 3 of his games. He and Kyle couldn't win the beer frame, though, as Kenny and Jimmy Scott scored the free beer, winning 2-1. Kevin Cibart got 2 but it didn't help much as Kenny got 3 in the 6th match, and Jimmy wrapped it up with 2 more in the 7th match. Final score: 12-9 Outlaws.

The Tackle Box Alligator Humpers were home as the Oasis Dragons were visiting, chomping on peanuts I'm sure. It was all Dragons as they won big, 17-4. Steve Matthei, Walter, and Sid each had 3-0 hat tricks. Aaron, Micah, Krad, and Chris each had 2-1 wins. But, the Pops/Bob Cody tandem was able to salvage the beer frame win versus Captain Jeffe (sorry, no accent mark for the 'e') and Micah, 2-1. Still no individual player dues, roster, or bar sponsor fees for the Tackle Box, so still no stats for them.

Over on table 2 at the Oasis, the O-Team were hosting the Empire Club for the Durham squad's first match of the year (they had the week #1 bye). These teams were locked up in a 6-6 tie at the break. Russ got three for the O to start the night off, but DJ struck right back and tied it back up with 3 of his own. Chuck then got 2, but Casey came back with 2 for the Durhamites. Mike Clarke and Stacy beat from Matt V. and Casey 2-1 FTBFW. It was pretty much all O-Team in the bottom-half as they got 7 of the final 9 points for an Oasis victory, 13-8. Casey still needs to get his dues, roster, and sponsor fees in, but he's had a little extra time for starting the season late. I need to get those before individual stats are counted.

This is week #3. Good luck everyone. The Rack Pack have an early trick or treat with a bye week. Thanks to everyone for getting those score sheets in on time, and paying up (Outlaws stats are now current.)

Note: on the 'Statistics' page/tab, as always, for some reason, when you sort it by percentage (clicking on the '%' tab once or twice) those with 100% are somehow automatically listed near the bottom of the list. It somehow thinks '100' is less than 10% for example, but more than 0%. Again, see the 'President's Corner' note at the top right of the home page for instructions on viewing the complete stats list on one page, not just the first 100 then a second page for those 100+ players. Sorry, it's a built-in thing with the website that they can't change, supposedly. There is that work-around, though. But it still shows the 100%ers down near the bottom.

Week #1 Results
Oct 22, 2014, 9:56 am

One week down, a bunch more to go...here's what happened last Thursday:

The Bankers were home taking on the Duffy's crew. Both teams wanted to get off to a good start this year, and it showed as both teams fought hard and it came down to the wire. Jim and Mark Edwards each got 3-0 wins for the Bankers, and Captain Ed got all 3 of his. Russ and Barney beat Kevin and Woot in the beer frame, 2-1. Teams were tied at 10-10, but Banker Barney got the final deciding game to give his squad the 11-10 win.

The Outlaws were also at the Oasis, as they took on the Last Call Rack Pack. It was all Outlaws as they got 3-0 wins from Kenny Duff, Mike Brandt, and Jimmy Scott. Last Call Uncle Pat and Mike D got the beer frame though, beating Bulldog and Matt 2-1. The Outlaws still need to pay their individual league dues, except for Ricky, so their stats are still unofficial and not entered.

The third table was in play at the ‘O in week #1 as the O-Team played their intra-bar buddies, the Oasis Dragons. The final score was 16-5 O-Team. The O-Boyz had 3-0 wins from Russ, Chuck, Joel, and Mike. Those last 3 guys swept the bottom half of the score sheet, 9-0. Aaron and Jeff did get the beer frame from Joel and Chuck, 2-0. I errantly said the Dragons hadn't paid, but they had. And now the O-Team is paid so they are both all square.

The Playa’s were on the road to start the season and they headed south to the Tackle Box. The Alligator Humpers put up a good fight – it was 7-5 Playa’s at the break, thanks to Leland’s 3-0 match. Charlie got 2 out of 3 in the 5th frame to make it a one-point game, 8-7 Playa’s. But Dave Kaplan and Kevin Cibart stopped that comeback cold in the last 2 matches with a pair of 3-0 wins. Final score: Playa’s 14, T-Box 7. Kevin and Leland got the beer frame against Mike and Kaz (or Raz). Still waiting for a roster, dues, and bar sponsorship from the Tackle Box, so no stats until then.

The Down Lo Stickmen were also on the road at the Eagles Nest. Thanks to Brian Norman, last season’s Most Improved Shooter, and Paul ‘Wall’ Thurman each getting 3-0 wins, the Stickmen were up 8-4 at the break. Bobbo was definitely the Eagles MVP for the night – he got all 3 of his games, nobody else had more than one. Don and Mike of the Eagles did get the beer frame from Scott and Wheez, 2-1. The Stickmen won in the end 14-7.

 Side note: Be careful and avoid any possible conflict on the Eagles table (or any drop-pocket tables) – the Eagle’s actual pockets seem smaller than average and they fill up quickly with dropped balls. Be sure to (carefully) clean out, move, or empty the pockets regularly as you’re shooting. FYI: If any object ball rebounds out of a full pocket and stays on the table in play, it stays out (not pocketed). If it’s the cue ball that rebounds out, it stays pocketed (scratch). If the ball, cue ball or object ball, is sitting on top of a pile and maybe touching the table bed as well, it is considered down (pocketed), if it would have naturally fallen if the pile didn’t stop it. It is the player’s responsibility to keep the pocket’s contents in check. This rule clarification will be added to our CMPL rules (rule #10) immediately (available in the ‘downloads’ section, and part of the printed rules for next year.) Side-side note: the 2014-2016 version of “The Official Rules of CueSports International – As used by the BCAPL and USAPL” is available for download or viewing by clicking HERE, or downloading from the CMPL website’s ‘downloads’ section. This is just for reference and used by me for rulings not covered in our limited CMPL rules.

The Down Lo Damned were home alone as the big bad Oasis Bulldogs came a knockin’. Bulldog Keith, Brenon, and Mario each had 3-0 wins. The other 4 ‘Dogs had 2-1 wins. If you’re keeping track at home, your algebra would yield an answer of 17-4 Oasis. Brenon and Mario got to their 3 wins in style – they each had an 8-ball break-and-run in their final games. All the Steve’s played in the beer fame – Steve Smith and Ed beat Stephen W. and Steve McGrill 2-1 for the honors.

Again, if your name is not listed on the website under your team’s roster, you or your captain have not paid your $20 dues yet and you’re in jeopardy of losing any points or stats earned in week #1. Be sure to talk to him or me as soon as possible.

The Empire Club is now ready to play – they had the bye for week #1. They’ll be starting their season at the Oasis versus Stacy and the boyz. Yes, that was a ‘z’. The Down Lo Damned will have a week off to catch their collective breath as they have the week #2 bye. Everyone else – good luck! The Empire will have a few extra days to get their rosters/money straightened out due to their late start.

Binders Ready for Captains
Oct 14, 2014, 2:53 pm

Attention Captains-

The 2014-2015 CMPL binders are ready to be picked up at the Oasis now. Just ask Stacy, Barney, or a bartender to get it for you from behind the bar. They should be down by Stacy's desk area if the bartender is unsure, in a box.

First games are now about 48 hours away. Call your teammates and get them ready to play, with their entry fees ($20). 

Small note for Oasis teams and visitors - it doesn't look like Glenn will have the tables all ready by Thursday, and of course we have 3 tables needed on the schedule the first night. Until the tight-pocketed table #4 is replaced, table #4 on the schedule will now be table #3. The O-Team is playing an intra-bar match with the Dragons, so if they both decide to play on table #4 as it is, or even on the new super-tight table 5 (or 0?) in the back room, they can. Until table #4 is done. Maybe Glenn can pull out an all nighter or two and get them done. Either way, they'll figure it out and something will work. Actually after this first week of games, we won't need a third Oasis table until January I think. We use it a lot in the second half.

Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck this week!

-Scott-
