Attention All Captains!
Oct 3, 2012, 3:26 pm

As tradition states, it's that time of year - the 2nd Thursday in October is here next week:

2012-2013 CMPL Captains Meeting

Thursday October 11th, 7:00pm, at the Oasis

I'll be calling all captains as well to discuss topics, receive suggestions, and remind them of the meeting. If you can't make it, send a delegate.



Top Shooter 2011-2012
Jun 13, 2012, 12:28 am

Congratulations to the CMPL Top Shooter for 2011-2012

Kevin Cibart

Kevin came through on top in a very exciting 8-man Top Shooter Tournament at the Oasis Bar and Grill last Thursday night. Kevin had to fight his way through some of the best in the league to take home top honors for the 2nd year in a row. In the finals, he had to beat his teammate, Jason Colabove, to become the king of the hill. For his hard work, he earned $100 cash plus the coveted Top Shooter trophy to be given to him this Saturday at the Down Lo during the end of the year pool party and awards ceremony. Congratulations Kevin!


Speaking of pool party - only a few more days remain before the official end of the 2011-2012 season. All players are invited of course, and a guest. As usual - free beer, free food (pot luck and tri-tip), awards, raffle, and many tournaments on the Down Lo array of tables. The party starts around 1:00pm on this Saturday, June 16th. Captains - please remind your players. And everyone - please bring a prize to be raffled! If we want to compete with the Women's prize table, to make more money for our league, we need to sell a lot of tickets and have some great prizes. Please help me out before we take a break for the Summer. Many captains expressed a desire to help me out during the Captain's meeting last October - here's your chance. Call me if you have any questions and/or prizes.


2011-2012 CMPL Team Champions - The Playa's!
Jun 1, 2012, 9:07 pm

The 2011-2012 Chico Mens Pool League Team Champions

The Down Lo Playa's

On Thursday, May 31st, the #1 seed Playa's hosted the defending champion #3 seed Oasis Bulldogs in the championship match. In the race to 11 format, the Down Lo squad got the required points in the 5th frame as Jason Colabove got the final 2 deciding points giving the Playa's an 11-4 victory. Charles and Leland each got 3-0 hat tricks, and Kevin, Leo, and Jason got the other 5 points. Again, congrats to the Playa's for an incredibly dominant season - they'll definitely be the team to beat in 2012-2013.


That just leaves the exciting top shooter tournament and the end-of-the-year Pool Party and Awards Ceremony. The Top Shooter Tournament will take place at The Oasis next Thursday, June 7th, at 7:00pm sharp. Those involved, the top eight shooters, are as follows (in order of seed placement):

Jason Colabove - Down Lo Playa's

Kenny Duff - Down Lo Diamondbacks

Charles Lintz - Down Lo Playa's

Leland Baxter - Down Lo Playa's

Kevin Cibart - Down Lo Playa's

Mike Karol - Down Lo Diamondbacks

Ed Theis - Towne Lounge II

Keith Whitworth - Oasis Bulldogs


1st Alternate: Mike Brandt, Sr. - Down Lo Diamondbacks

2nd Alternate: Dennis Bruch, Jr. - Oasis Bulldogs


Come watch it live as these guys battle it out for the Top Shooter Trophy and $100 cash!


And for everyone, from 13th place to 1st place, worst shooter to top shooter, you are all invited to the best event of the year - the infamous Pool Party as we celebrate another great season alongside the Women's League. Downstairs at the Down Lo, starting at 1:00pm, we'll have a tri-tip dinner provided by the Meat Locker and Mike Clarke, a huge pot-luck ensemble, FREE BEER (yes, FREE!), awards and honorable mentions, various pool tournaments around the bar, and the show-stealer of the night, the raffle! All the proceeds from the Men's raffle ticket sales goes right back in the bank for next season so the more tickets we sell, the more money our league gets. So to sell tickets, we need great prizes - that's where YOU come in! I need your help - I need prizes from your business, your friend's business, your unopened gifts-of-the-past in your garage, cash donations which your business will be recognized for (like Cox Fencing - thanks Jon!) whatever you can do to help. Call me if you have any questions or any great prizes - 966-5632.



3rd Place
May 29, 2012, 9:35 pm

Congratulations to the Down Lo Diamondbacks and the Oasis O-Team on a great season! They played their 3rd/4th place match at the Down Lo last Thursday. I haven't seen the score sheet, so I don't know the particulars, but I did hear from Captain Mike Clarke that the Diamondbacks were the winners and therefore the 2011-2012 CMPL 3rd Place Team! Congratulations!

So I'm getting closer to putting the trophy order in. I've got the Beer Frame Champions (Playa's), our 3rd Place team (Diamondbacks), and most improved (can't tell you yet). All that's left is 1st and 2nd place which we will find out this Thursday (at the Down Lo), and our Top Shooter (next Thursday at the Oasis). All these trohies will be handed out at the end-of-the-year party on Saturday June 16th at the Down Lo.

The Championship match will be as follows:

#1 Seed Down Lo Playa's vs. #3 Seed Oasis Bulldogs, at the Down Lo, 7:00pm, Thursday May 31st.

The game will be played on Table #8

All right then, we'll see you there!

Still looking for your raffle prize(s) by the way. You know who you are... just about everyone. Call me at 966-5632 if you have any donations, suggestions, or questions.


Playoff results - Round #2
May 23, 2012, 9:58 am

Here's the results of the second round of the playoffs:

The #1 seed Playa's were home again hosting the #5 seed Oasis O-Team. In a fairly close match, the Playa's came out on top, 11-6. It was 8-4 Playa's at the break, thanks to Charles and Kevin's 3-0 wins. Jason Colabove and Leo put up a total of 3 points in the second half to get their team to the required 11 wins. The Playa's are on to the Championship on May 31st.

The #2 seed Diamondbacks were on the neighboring table taking on the #3 seed Oasis Bulldogs. Frank came back for the playoffs and got 3 wins in his match to help his team to a 7-5 halftime score. Izzy came back and got 3 in the 5th spot to give the lead back to the D-Backs 8-7, but Captain Steve of the Bulldogs struck back with 3 of his own to put the 'Dogs back in the lead and on the hill. Ed Bowers needed one and got one in the final frame putting the Bulldogs over the top 11-8. The Bulldogs will go on to the Championship versus the Playa's on May 31st, at the Down Lo.

The two teams who came up short last week will play in the 3rd/4th place game this Thursday, at the Down Lo.

Playoff results - Round #1
May 15, 2012, 1:28 am

The first week of the playoffs are complete. Here's what happened and what lays ahead this week...

You've heard the mythical and legendary tales - David vs. Goliath, Buster Douglas vs. Mike Tyson, the 'Miracle on Ice' U.S vs. U.S.S.R Olympic ice hockey game, and last week it was #8 seed Stickmen vs. #1 seed Playa's. But (unfortunately) this match won't be included with those forementioned upsets. The Stickmen did hang in there, though, and fought it out. Unlike Mike Tyson, the Stickmen didn't have the clap to blame for their demise. Similar to the Dragons, the match was played on the home-chosen and difficult pro-cut pocketed table 2, the true home team had the home field advantage and it showed. Louis started off the night with a win against Charles, but Kevin came back and got all 3 for his squad. Leland beat Wheez 2-1, and Gregg got Sundy 2-1. Cele came back in the 5th spot and got 2 against Mikie. Down 10-5 it was up to Scott to keep the Stickmen alive against former teammate Larry Hiller. Larry got the first, only, and deciding victory in the 6th match and gave the Playa's an 11-5 victory. It needs to be noted that the Playa's were down their currently #1 top shooter, Jason Colabove, and the Stickmen sorely missed their own Keith Abarra. So things could have been different one way or the other.

Also downstairs at the Down Lo, the #2 seed Diamondbacks were home against the travelling Oasis Dragons, the #7 seeded team. After Kenny Duff started off with a 2-spot, Rusty and Mike Brandt, Sr. got back-to-back 3-0 wins to put the D'backs up 8-1 after 3 matches. But Micah stepped up and got all 3 of his to get them back in it, down 8-4 at the break. In the bottom-half Mike Karol got 2 to put the Down Lo on the hill. With their backs against the wall, Krad got the first one with some great long bank shots against Matt Fields, but Matt came back with an excellent long cut-shot on the 8-ball and won the 11th and deciding point. Diamondbacks win 11-6.

The #3 seed Bulldogs were home hosting the #6 seed Towne Lounge I. It was all Bulldogs as they won 11-3. Tony and Dave Larabee got the lone points for the Lounge, as Tony tallied 2 to start the night. The Bulldogs got 3-0 wins from Dennis and Chris, as captain Steve got the final 2 deciding points in the fifth and final match.

In the closest match of this year's playoffs (so far), the #4 seed Towne Lounge II team was home hosting the #5 seed Oasis O-Team. In a very close match, the teams were tied 6-6 at the break as each team traded 2-1 victories. In the 5th match, Slade got 2 to Shawn's 1 to make it 8-7 Oasis. Prana came back and got 2 against James to make 9-9. It came down to the seventh and final match, and Oasis O Aaron Rooney got the first and final 2 points to give the Oasis team the razor-thin 11-9 victory.


So 4 more teams are out of the playoffs, and only the final four remain. Here's the lineup for Round #2 - Thursday, May 17th 7:00pm:

#1 seed Down Lo Playa's vs. #5 seed Oasis O-Team at the Down Lo

#2 seed Down Lo Diamondbacks vs. #3 seed Oasis Bulldogs at the Down Lo

As you can see you can watch both of these matches in one place, at the Down Lo. So come down and cheer on your favorite team or player and see who makes it to the Championship on May 31st! The 2 losers will face off in the 3rd/4th place match on the 24th, location TBD.

Good luck!


End of the 2011-2012 Regular Season!
May 8, 2012, 1:26 am


All right - all the games are in the books. It's PLAYOFF TIME! Here's the results from last week...

The Down Lo Stickmen were home hosting the Last Call Pocket Raiders. In a very close match, the Stickmen edged it out with an 11-10 victory, thanks to Louis' 3-0 win in the first half. The Cele and Mark Nobriga tandem beat Kevin and Matt in the beer frame 2-1. The #8 seed Stickmen now have to play the role of spoiler as they take on the #1 seed Playa's at the Down Lo this Thursday night.

The Playa's were home taking on the Towne Lounge II team. It was tied 6-6 at the break, thanks to Kevin's 3-0 victory for the Playa's, and Greg Smith's 3-0 victory for the TLII. Coincidentally both teams were tied for the beer frame championship at 19 wins - winner takes the trophies. Leland and Kevin beat Ed and Greg in the beer frame and became the 2011-2012 Beer Frame Team Champions. Congrats! In the bottom half of the night, it was all TLII as Ed got 2, Prana got 3, and Shawn got 2 to make the final score 13-8 Towne Lounge. This ended the Playa's bid for a perfect season, but they are of course still the #1 seed taking on the Stickmen Thursday. The #4 seed TLII will host the #5 seed Oasis O-Team in the first round. Also, props to Jason Colabove of the Playa's - #1 seed in the Top Shooter Tournament as he ended the season on top, winning 51 of 60 games - that's 85%!

Out at the Empire Club, it was all Empire as they beat the Bankers 15-6. James Williams and Mike Dixon ended their season in style getting all 3 of their matches. Mark and Bill did get the free beer as they beat Bob L. and Eric, 2-1.

The Bulldogs welcomed in the Tackle Box Spinners as they tried to solidify their final playoff spot. The 'Dogs also won big beating the 'Box 17-4. Dennis, Ty, and Brian all got 3 for their team. One of Keith's was via an 8-ball break-and-run. The Bulldogs ended up in 3rd place as the #3 seed. They will face the #6 seed Towne Lounge 1 team at the Oasis on Thursday.

The Eagles wrapped up their season at home hosting the Oasis Dragons. The Eagles were down 5-7 at the break and ended up making it close thanks to Jon Cox's final-frame 3-0 win. Kenny Smith and Micah each got 3-0 hat tricks for the Dragons to make the final score 12-9 Oasis. Steve and Micah got the beer frame from Jon and Bobbo, 2-0. The Dragons finished the season as the #7 seed and will face the #2 seed Diamondbacks on Thursday at the Down Lo.

The Diamondbacks were on the road upstairs at the Towne Lounge taking on the TLI squad. In another close match, the Diamondbacks came out on top 11-10 when it was said and done. All players traded 2-1 games except for Kenny Duff who got all 3 of his. Izzy and Kenny beat Howie and Kevin in the beer frame, 2-1. As mentioned, the D-Backs will play at home versus the Dragons in the first round, and the Towne Lounge I team will play the Bulldogs at the Oasis as the #6 seed.

The Oasis O-Team was idle this week on their bye, and because of it dropped 2 seeds down to the #5 seed. Again, they will play the #4 seed Towne Lounge II team at the 'Lounge.


So here's the first round playoff schedule (all games Thursday May 10th at 7:00pm):

#1 Down Lo Playa's vs. the #8 Down Lo Stickmen - at the Down Lo

#2 Down Lo Diamondbacks vs. the #7 Oasis Dragons - at the Down Lo

#3 Oasis Bulldogs vs. the #6 Towne Lounge I - at the Oasis

#4 Towne Lounge II vs. the #5 Oasis O-Team - at the Towne Lounge

Good luck to all teams - have fun and play your best! Not in the playoffs this year? Come down and cheer for your favorite team. Don't forget - it's not over! Top Shooter tourney on June 7th, Pool Party and Awards ceremony at the Down Lo on Sat. June 16th. Please get me some prizes to raffle off!!!


Week #25 results
May 3, 2012, 1:02 am

Okay - as I drove in from the airport I swung by the O' and got the score sheets (at least 5 of them) and entered as much as I could. Here are the results from week #25, minus the Towne Lounge I vs. Bankers match-up...

The Eagles flew out to Durham to take on the Empire last week. It was mostly 2-1 scores for the Empire until Bob Lithgow shot in the final spot and got a 3-0 win. Final score: Empire 14, Eagles 7. Jon and Paul did get the beer frame for the Eagles, defeating Eric and Bob.

The Dragons were home hosting the Towne Lounge II team. The Dragons were up 8-4 at the break thanks to Rob Lewis' 3-0 lead-off victory. Ed and Steve Swim won the beer frame 2-0, beating Jeff and Jason Staub. That gives them 19 beer frame wins going into the final night tied with the Playa's. John Chamberln finished the night with a 3-0 hat trick and giving his team a 13-8 victory.

The Stickmen were home taking on the Oasis O-Team. The Down Lo was up 7-5 at the break, as Cele and James each got 3-0 wins for their respective teams. Cele stayed at the table and paired up with Sundy and the 2 of them beat James and Captain Clarke 2-1 in the beer frame. The O got 4 more in the bottom half, but that was it. They failed to field a 7th player and threw the Stickmen 3 points. Rumor has it Stacy had a hot date and couldn't make it. Final score: Stickmen 12, Oasis O-Team 9.

The Diamondbacks headed out on the road to take on the Oasis Bulldogs. The 'Dogs hung in there, only down 5-7 at the break. Paul and Kenny beat Corning's own Jim Moon and his scotch double partner Ty Kaye, 2-0. The Bulldogs couldn't draft anyone out of the stands and ended up being one person short, giving the D-Backs an easy 3 points. Mike Brandt and Paul Airth each earned their 3-0 wins the hard way. Diamondbacks ended up on top, 14-7.

Way out at the Last Call, the Pocket Raiders welcomed in the Down Lo Playa's. It was close at the break - the Playa's were up only 7-5, but after Leland and Kevin beat Jim and Gary in the beer frame, it was Playa' time. Larry got 2 out of 3, one of them via an 8-ball break and run (Kevin had one, too), Amer got 3, and Jason Colabove wrapped it up with 3. The Playa's ended up with 15, the Pocket Raiders 6.

Again, as of Wednesday night (Thursday morning), no score sheet from the Towne Lounge I squad for their home match versus the Bankers. It really doesn't do too much for the standings (as long as the TLI team got more than 2 points), and the Top Shooter list isn't affected, but I'll let you know what happened when I know.

LAST WEEK! Good luck, except for the Oasis O-Team who are done with the regular season - they have a final-week bye. I'm sure they'll be tuning up for the playoffs, though, which start in 2 weeks.

POOL PARTY - about a month away! I NEED PRIZES!!! Help me out if you can - ask your friends, relatives, boss, etc. If you are the boss, donate a prize from your business! Let me know what you can do...
