Playoff Update
May 13, 2014, 2:01 pm

We're going to wait until next Thursday, May 22nd, to start the "B Trophy" playoffs with the Bankers Playing the Tackle Box, at the Oasis, 7:00pm. Race to 11 points. Then, on May 29th the winner of that match will play the Damned at the Down Lo. That same night (May 29th) the Last Call will play the Eagles, at the Eagles, 7:00pm. Race to 11 points. Then, on June 5th, the winner of each match will play each other for the B Trophy Championship.

This Thursday, May 15th, the "A Trophy" playoffs will begin. The schedule has been updated online ("Game Schedule" - green, left-hand column), but here's what's happening and where for Thursday night:


"A Trophy" Playoffs - Round #1 - Thursday, May 15th

#1 Playa's vs #8 Stickmen - Down Lo, 7:00pm, Table #10

During this match, at some point, Kevin and Leland will face off to determine the true #1 seeded Top Shooter in a race-to-3 playoff.

#2 Outlaws vs #7 Dragons - Oasis, 7:00pm, Table #1

#3 Bulldogs vs #6 Duffy's - Oasis, 7:00pm, Table #2

Hopefully sometime during these Oasis Matches, at some point, Mike Karol and Steve Smith will face off to determine the true #7 seeded Top Shooter in a race-to-3 playoff.

#4 O-Team vs #5 Empire Club - Oasis, 7:00pm, Table #6

Tables at the Oasis were picked at random. Tables #1 and #2 are set as is. If both teams (O-Team and Empire) mutually agree to play on Table #3 instead of #6, that is their option. But we may not know until game night which table they choose, so practice on days prior will be shady. I'll try to get Casey and Stacey to communicate and decide ahead of time.

May 22nd will be round #2 (2 matches) at the higher seeded team's place.

May 29th will be the 3rd/4th place game for the losers from May 22nd.

June 5th will be the Championships - both for the A and B Trophies.

June 12th - Top Shooter Tourney at The Oasis

June 21st - Pool Party Awards and Banquet - Eagles Hall, time TBD.


More to come. Keep watching.


Final Results

Okay, it's a wrap...

The season's over. The stats are all in from the final games last Thursday. I never received any score correction requests so it is FINAL. I don't have time for a recap at this moment or the printouts, but here's a sneak peak of what the end of the season brought:

Kevin and Leland ended the season in a tie for the top of the Top Shooters at an incredible 83.3%. Same amount of wins, same amount of games played.

The Playa's are Beer Frame trophy winners.

The Stickmen beat the Rack Pack and the Damned lost to the Outlaws so those teams swapped positions - Stickmen are the #8 seeds, the Damned are the #9 seed. The Stickmen will play the Playa's (#1 seed) this Thursday, at the Down Lo, on table #10. The Damned will have a bye week and play the winner of the Bankers (#12 seed) and the Tackle Box (#13 seed) in 2 weeks as part of the "B Trophy" playoffs. The Bankers and Tackle Box will face off at the Oasis this Thursday, May 15th. The Eagles (#10 seed) will play The Rack Pack (#11 seed) in 2 weeks as well, at the Eagles. But see below regarding this week at the Oasis...

In the "A Trophy", aka Main Playoffs, again Playa's vs Stickmen, Outlaws vs Dragons (at Oasis), Bulldogs vs Duffy's (at Oasis), and The O-Team vs Empire (at Oasis).

This will make for 4 games at Oasis this Thursday - 3 main playoff games and one B Trophy playoff game. I haven't figured tables out yet, but initially I'm thinking Bankers and Tackle Box on Table 6 (small table by the bar), and the others on tables 1,2 and 3, chosen by random draw. I know we haven't used table 3 all year but it looks like this will be the only way it can work. Another option is pushing the B trophy games out one week to avoid a very crowded Oasis. Then do a random draw for tables 1, 2 and 6 this Thursday. This might be better now that I'm typing this...

The Top Shooters are: Kevin C., Leland, James Williams, Dennis Bruch, Brian Norman, Keith Whitworth, Steve Smith, and Mike Karol. Charles didn't play the final week so he is ineligible. The 2 alternates who need to be present as well are Ed Theis and Joel Russo. Congratulations to all those great shooters! The tournament will be held at the Oasis on June 12th - let me know if you can't make it and your name is listed above. It's not listed in the rules but I could of sworn we voted at the Captain's meeting in October that instead of year's past doing a random draw and seeding for the tourney that we would do it as the end of the year standings, #1 shooter plays #8 shooter, and so forth. Of course this year we have an unprecedented tie at the top, so we might have to have a playoff match between Kevin and Leland to find the #1 seed. Or if we do random draw seedings it wouldn't matter. I'll be talking to captains and players as we go, and checking my notes, to see how we actually do it.

I'll also be talking to playoff team captains to see how we figure out the crowded Oasis situation ASAP. So let me know your thoughts.

It's not over yet, but thanks again for a great season. Good luck in the playoffs.

Check here or your email box for updates in the next few days regarding the decisions above that need to be made.


Week 23 and 24
May 5, 2014, 2:08 am

It's the FINAL WEEK!

Ok, I'm behind on recaps and results, BUT all the stats are entered, including last Thursday, May 1st. The Top Shooter list and Beer Frame tracker are current, as well as the individual stats, and of course the Team Standings are current. Again, everything is good except for my recap write-ups. I'll get those on here ASAP. The printouts will be emailed and posted tonight or Monday.

The standings are tight, especially around the 6-10th spots where only a few points separate the teams. It will definitely go down to the last matches - this Thursday, May 8th. The Top Shooter standings have been mixed up a little after last week, so check them out - it will also go down to the wire to see who is in the top 8. Some shooters NEED to play this week to be eligible, look for them with the red numbers. The Beer Frame trophy will be up for grabs this Thursday, too, as The Playa's (in first by 1 win) and The Outlaws (in 2nd behind by 1 win) will play for the Beer Trophy. If the Playa's win, they get the trophy. If the Outlaws win, and the Playa's lose, we'll have a tie and have to do some kind of playoff tie-breaker. Or have co-champions, we'll see.

More info on the "B-Trophy" tournament will be coming soon, too. Again, the 12th and 13th seed will play eachother in 2 weeks to see who becomes the true 12th seed. That team plays the #9 seed the following week, as well as the 10th vs 11th seed. The winner of each of those will play eachother for the "B-Trophy". Location(s) are still yet to be determined.

Thanks for your patience. Good luck this week. Watch for recaps once I get a few minutes. They will be in a separate email. 

The O-Team is done for the year - they have the final bye week this Thursday.


Week #23 Results
Apr 24, 2014, 3:30 pm

Here's what happened last week (4/17):

The Empire club was home out in Durham last week as the Bulldogs made the trek south. The teams were tied at 6 at the end of the first half. James, Mike, and Casey each got 2 wins for the Empire, but Captain Steve got 3 wins for his 'Dogs. Ty and Ed beat Matt and DJ in the beer frame 2-0. In the bottom frames, the Bulldogs got a few more wins than the Empire and came out with a 12-9 victory. Dennis also had a 3-0 win for the road team.

The next closest team to the Empire, the Tackle Box, was home hosting the Rack Pack of Last Call. This match was all Tackle Box as they had the match won before the beer frame. With almost a perfect sweep from the 1-4 shooters, the 'Box was up 11-1 thanks to Bob Cody, Joe, and Richie getting 3-0 victories. The Rack Pack did get the beer frame though, Gary and Mike beat Bob C. and Jonny 2-0. Last Call made it slightly more respectable by getting 6 of the final 9 points. Final score: Tackle Box 15, Last Call 6.

The Outlaws of Oasis were on the road last week and took on the Duffy's Tavern crew. It was very close in the first half as the Outlaws were up just 7-5. Kenny, Rusty, and Ricky each got 2-1 victories, Ed Theis got a 2-1 victory for his team. Mike Karol and Greg won the beer frame 2-1 against Kevin and Ice Cream. Kevin stayed at the table and got 2 for his Tavern making the score 8-7 Outlaws, but Bulldog then got 3 wins and Mike Karol rounded out the night with 2 more propelling the Oasis team to a 13-8 victory.

Downstairs at the Down Lo, the Playa's were hosting the Oasis O-Team. Identical to the Outlaw/Duffy's match, it was close in the first half as the Playa's were only up 7-5. Larry, Dave, and Kevin Cibart each got 2-1 wins, and Sean Wasson got 2 wins for the Oasis. James and Joel won the beer frame for the O-Team, beating Jason and Leland 2-1. That loss by the Playa's should tighten up the beer frame standings between them and the Outlaws. In the back half it was all Playa's as they recorded 7 of the final 9 points. Jason got 3, Leland got 2, and Leo got 2. Final score: 14-7 Playa's.

Also at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were taking on the 3rd Down Lo team, the Damned, on table 5. The Stickmen jumped out to a large 9-3 lead at the beer frame - Cele got 2, Wheez got 2, and Keith got 2. Brian Norman had the hot hand and got all 3 of his games. Paul Wall and Scott beat Pat and Wei in the beer frame, 2-0. Scott stayed at the table and got 2 wins to get the Stickmen to 11. Sundy added one more, but the Damned got 6 of the final 9 to make the final score Stickmen 12, Damned 9.

The Bankers were home at the Oasis as the Eagles Club made their way over as the visiting team. The teams were sparring back and forth in the front half - Jim W. got 3 for Oasis, but COX came back and got 3 for the Eagles. Then Mark Murgia got 2 for Oasis, but Bobbo came back and got 2 for the Eagles. At the end of 4 it was tied 6-6. COX and Donny got the beer frame 2-0 against George and Barney. But in the bottom half the Eagles threw some heavy punches, including Chuck's 3-0 haymaker, and knocked out the Bankers. The judges had it 13-8 Eagles.

The Dragons had the bye week on April 17th, the Eagles have the week off this Thursday, April 24th.

Good luck to everyone else - final 3 regular season matches for the year!

Week #22 Results
Apr 14, 2014, 1:27 am

Here's what happened last week, April 10th (Week #22):

The Oasis Outlaws were home taking on the Eagles squad. It was all Outlaws as they won big, 16-5. Kenny Duff and Izzy each had 3-0 wins, and everyone else on the Oasis roster had 2-1 wins. Mike Karol and Kenny Duff beat Robin and David Napier 2-1 in the beer frame. 

The Empire Club was home hosting the visiting Down Lo Damned. It was a close match but the Empre ended up on top, 11-10. Tony started off the Down Lo Damned's night with a 3-0 win to help the Damned get to an 8-4 lead at the break. Rob and Don got the road beer frame win against Casey and Matt. But in the bottom frames, it was all Empire as they won 7 of the final 9 games. Captain Casey got all 3 of his games to help his team's cause in the 6th frame.

The Stickmen were home taking on the Oasis Bankers. The Oasis squad was up 8-4 at the break. Brian Norman started things right for the Stickmen getting all 3 of his games, but Jon A. equalized it by getting all 3 of his for the Bankers. It was 10-8 Bankers after Stickmen Keith and Madsack each got 2 wins, but Barney came up big by kicking my ass 3-0 and getting the final score to 13-8 Bankers.

The Bulldogs were taking on their barmates, the Dragons, last week. Paul put his 'Dogs up 7-5 at the break thanks to his 3-0 win. Ty and Robbie defeated Steve H. and Aaron in the beer frame, 2-0. Steve Hambek got all 3 in the 5th match to get the score to 8-7 Dragons, but Keith and Steve stormed back for the Bulldogs and each got 3 wins in the final 2 matches to propel the 'Dogs to a 13-8 victory.

The Oasis O-Team was home taking on the Rack pack of Last Call. It was all Oasis all the time as they won 15-6. Jimmy, Stacy, and James each had back-to-back-to-back 3-0 wins to start the night 9-0. Gary stopped the bleeding with 2 wins to get the half time score to 10-2 Oasis. James and Jimmy beat Kevin Nickas and Curtis in the beer frame, 2-0. Joel then got the winning 11th and 12th points in the 5th match, and Aaron added 3 more in the 6th spot. Rack Pack Mike got it from disastrous to pretty bad with 3 wins in the final frame.

The Tacklebox was on fire and all over the Duffy's backs last week. Thanks to Pop's 3-0 win, and Joe's 2-1 win, the 'Box was up 7-5 at the break. Joe and Richie kept the momentum going by winning the beer frame 2-0 against Ed and Prana. Ed did right the Duffy's ship by getting 3 wins in the 5th frame, and Prana got 2 in the 6th frame. But Tackle Box Richie came up big in the 7th frame, with Duffy's on the proverbial 'hill', and won all 3 to send the Alligator Humpers into the lead and the final 11-10 victory. 

The Playa's were on their bye week April 10th, and the Dragons will get their bye week out of the way this Thursday, April 17th. Good luck to everyone else. Only 4 games/nights to go (unless you haven't had your bye week yet)! The top 8 teams are in the Real Deal playoffs, teams ranked 9-13 are in the Not So Big Deal playoffs. In the regular playoffs, 1 plays 8, 2 plays 7, 3 plays 6, and 4 plays 5. In the bottom half playoffs (pending captain approval), there will be a separate wild card game with 12 seed and 13 seed playing to see who plays the 9 seed in week 2. 10 plays 11 seed in the second week of playoffs as well. 

The current standings and printouts are attached as well as posted at the Oasis. Online is 100% complete and up to date. Thanks for your patience. Let me know if you see any errors - last chance


Week #21 Results

Continuing the catch-up process...

Here's what happened in Week #21 (April 3rd):

The Rack Pack were home at the Last Call as the Oasis Bulldogs were on the road. The teams traded 2-1 wins to make the score 6-6 at the break. Chris and Ty won the beer frame for the 'Dogs 2-0. It was all Bulldogs in the second half as Dennis got 2 and Robbie and Steve got 3-0 wins to make the final score 14-7 Oasis.

The Bankers were also at home at the Oasis taking on the Tackle Box. Mark Edwards started the Bankers on the right track winning all 3 of his games, but Richie got all 3 of his in the 4th match to make the score 7-5 Bankers at the beer frame. Jon and Mark beat Bob Strobel and Kent in the scotch doubles match 2-1. Jon stayed at the table and got all 3 of his wins to get the Bankers to 10 points. The Bankers were short a player again so they had to win one more in the 6th and final match to get a win, and Barney did just that plus one more to get the Bankers to a shorthanded 12-9 win. 

The Eagles were home against the Oasis O-Team on April 3rd. The match was a close 7-5 contest at the break thanks to James V.'s 3-0 Oasis win. Jimmy and Joel beat Bobby and Jon in the beer frame 2-0. Robin got 2 in the 5th frame, but Mike Clarke got 3 wins in the 6th frame and Stacy rounded out the night with 2 wins to get the O-Team a 13-8 victory.

The Dragons were in a dog fight at the Oasis against the Durham Empire Club. The Empire was up big at the break, 8-4, thanks to James' 3-0 win and Matt V.'s 2-1 win - one of them via an 8-ball break-and-run. James stayed at the table and was joined by Matt to beat Steve and Aaron 2-1 in the beer frame. Kenny got 2 for the Dragons to make it 9-6 Empire. DJ added 2 more for the visitors to get them to 11 points and the win. Jeff Brun finished the night for the Dragons with a 3-0 win, but it was one short as the Empire won 11-10 in the end. 

In a Down Lo matchup, the Damned were up against the tough Playa's. The 1st place team was up 9-3 at the break thanks to Kevin Cibart's 3-0 win. Leland and Tom defeated Stephen Wells and Cooper in the beer frame, 2-1. Tom stayed at the table and recorded the Playa's 10th and 11th points. Jason Colabove and Leo chipped in 2 more each to get the final score to 15-6 Playa's. 

Also at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were taking on the Oasis Outlaws. The Stickmen were up 4-2 after Cele and Brian Norman's 2-1 wins, but it was all Outlaws the rest of the way. Bulldog and Gregg got 3-0 wins in the first half, and Kenny and Izzy each got 3-0 wins in the second half. Mike Brandt and Kenny beat Sundy and Doc in the beer frame. Final score, 16-5 Outlaws. 

The Duffy's crew was on their bye week on April 3rd.

April 10th results coming real soon...


Week #19 and #20 Results
Apr 14, 2014, 12:38 am

In an attempt to get things caught back up, here's the final 2 missing games from week #19 (March 20th):

The Oasis O-Team was home hosting the Down Lo Damned. It was even in the first half, 6-6, thanks to James V.'s 3-0 win for the O-Team, and Steve McGrill's 3-0 win for the Down Lo. Mike Clarke came back in the 5th spot to win all 3 games. Jimmy and Joel followed with 2 each to get the Oasis' team score to 13, the Damned settled with 8 wins. Mike and Joel beat Steve and Yuli for the beer frame honors, 2-0.

The Dragons were also at home at the Oasis facing the Oasis Outlaws. It was close at the break as the Outlaws were up 'only' 7-5. The Dragon's Steve and Jeff got the beer frame, beating Kenny and Bulldog 2-0. In the second half, Kenny, Bulldog, and Mike Karol each got 2 wins to make the final score 13-8 Outlaws.


Here are the results for Week #20 (March 27th):

In a heavyweight match up at the Down Lo, the Playa's welcomed in the Oasis Outlaws. The teams were tied at the break 6-6. Charles, Leland, and Kevin C. each got 2-1 wins, and Mike Brandt got 3 for his Outlaws before the beer frame. In what must have been a 'must see' beer frame, Leo and Leland beat Kenny and Gregg 2-1. Gregg stayed at the table and got 2 for the Oasis but Leo came back up and got 2 for the Playa's making the score 9-9 going into the final frame. Mike Karol came up big with 3 win to get the Outlaws to a win and more, beating the Playa's 12-9.

The Bulldogs won big against the Down Lo Stickmen 14-7. Dennis, Brenon, and Paul Airth each got 3-0 wins, all in the first half. Cal got all 3 of his against Ty to start the 2nd half. Keith got 2, and Scott got only 1 against Steve to finish the night. Scott and Cal couldn't even win one game against Steve and Ed for the beer frame. 

Duffy's was home against the Eagles. Teams traded 2-1 wins all through the first half to make the score 6-6 at the break. In the beer frame, Ed and Prana beat the Eagle's Jon and Chuck 2-1. Prana and Ed came up big in the second half getting 3-0 wins each to help the cause. Steve Swim ended a 0-14 streak by getting a big win in his 3rd match - a perfect birthday present for him! Hopefully that will swing his season back on his normally solid track. Final score 13-8 Duffy's. 

The Bankers only fielded 6 players, but snuck out of their bar with a close 10-11 loss against the Last Call Rack Pack. Jim Wilson started the night with a 3-0 win for the Bankers, but Matt Altenberg wiped that out with 3 of his own in the 3rd match. Out of players, Barney almost got the shorthanded win as he won his first 2 games of the 6th and final match. With the Oasis on the hill 10-8, Mike D. found a way to beat Barney and get the important 8th point. Add on 3 more by forfeit and the Rack Pack ended up on top 11-10 in the end.

The Oasis O-Team welcomed the Empire Club into Chico with a 12-9 win. James V. and Brian V. each got 3-0 hat tricks in the first half to get their O-Team to 9 points at the half. Jimmy and Joel couldn't beat the Empire tandem of James and DJ as they won free beer 2-0. Tom got 2 in the back-half for the Empire, James got 3 more, and DJ chipped in 1, but the comeback came up short as the Oasis won 12-9.

At the Tackle Box, the Alligator Humpers were playing the Oasis Dragons. It was a lop-sided win for the Dragons as they won 17-4. Aaron Smith, Steve Hambek, and Kenny Smith each had 3-0 wins. Jeff and Steve beat Bob and Kent for the beer frame win 2-0.

Sorry for the delay - April 3rd results are coming shortly...
