Week #8 Results
Jan 5, 2012, 12:11 am

I seem to be missing some scoresheets - I did not receive one from the Oasis O-Team in their game vs. the Eagles, or one from the Empire and their game vs. the Dragons, or the Tackle Box and their game vs. the Bankers. Because I didn't have these scores, the Top Shooter standings have not been updated, and the team scores/positions are subject to change. If you have a score sheet from these matches, even if you are the visiting team, please forward me a copy so I can get things updated. Call me if you need to and I can get it from you over the phone. Email is best, though.

Over at the Oasis, the Bulldogs were hosts to the Last Call Pocket Raiders, but they were anything but hospitable. Every Bulldog got 3 out of 3 except one shooter (who got 2 out of 3), making the Bulldog total 20 points. Keith, Dennis, Steve, Chris, Frank, and Ty each got 3 wins. The Pocket Raiders of course only got one win, thanks to Robby. The Bulldogs also got the beer frame as Chris and Ed beat Kevin 'Smith' and Matt 'Jones'. Again, no last names provided for the 2 players with the same first names.

All 3 Down Lo teams were at home. On the back table the Playa's were home versus the upstairs neighbors, Towne Lounge I. Charles, Leland, and Kevin each got 3 wins, and Gregg got 2, giving the Playa's a first half win. They were up 11-1 at the break. Leland and Jason got the beer frame from Pat and Tony, 2-0. In the bottom half, Jason stayed at the table and got 3 more wins, but the Loungers got 4 of the final 6 games making the final score 16-5, Playa's.

On Table #5, the other 2 Down Lo teams faced off - the Diamondbacks vs. the Stickmen. A similar score was the final - 16-5 Diamondbacks. Paul, Kenny, and Jimmy Scott got all 3 of their matches. Paul and Jimmy beat Scott and Keith in the beer frame for the Scotch Doubles honors.

Again, still waiting for the other 3 score sheets. If you know the results, let me know!

EDIT: Got two three more scoresheets from 12/15:

The Oasis Dragons headed south to take on The Empire. James Williams shot out of the gate for the Empire getting all 3 games, but in the next match Micah from the Dragons got all 3 of his. At the break, the Dragons were up 7-5. Steve and Jeff beat Paul and Eric in the beer frame, 2-0. The Dragons got 5 more in the second-half giving them the 12-9 victory.

Over at the Tackle Box the Bankers were the visiting team. Rich Sr. got 3 for his team in the first half, as did Jim for the Bankers. It was 7-5 Tackle Box at the break. Jim and Bill won the beer frame for the Oasis club, 2-1. In the bottom half, Bill Ide got 3 wins for the Bankers, and Captain Jonny got 3 for his home team, giving the Tackle Box an un-official 12-9 victory. Unfortunately, the 'Box played Bob who still hasn't paid. He won 2 of his games, but his team and his stats lose them for non-payment, so the official final score is 10-9 Tackle Box.

The Oasis O-Team was home on the 15th taking on the Eagles. The match was all-square heading into the beer frame, 6-6, thanks to Stacy getting all 3 to start the night, and Roben of the Eagles getting all 3 right back in the 2nd frame. Donny and Jon beat Kevin and James in the beer frame, 2-1. In the bottom frames, it was all Oasis as they got 7 of the final 9 matches - Slade got 1, Aaron got 3, and Troy wrapped up the night with 3 of his own, making the final score 13-8 Oasis.

Good luck in week #9. Shake off the Christmas and New Year's rust and come out strokin'! The Playa's will be on the bye this week, but if you want an autograph they will probably still be downstairs, downtown, practicing for next week vs. the O-Team.


Week #7 Results
Dec 13, 2011, 9:36 pm

Here's the results from week #7 (and one from week #6)...

In a power-packed showcase of two of the top teams, the Battle of The Down Lo featured the Playa's and the Diamondbacks. The Playa's were up 8-4 at the break, thanks to Kevin Cibart's 3-0 win. Kevin and Leland beat the D-Back's Paul and Rusty in the scotch doubles frame, 2-0. In the bottom-half, it was mostly the Playa's as they won 6 of the last 9. Mikie had the final say with a 3-0 showing to wrap the night up giving his team a 14-7 victory over the Diamondbacks. Not as close as it looked on paper, given that the two teams had a combined score of 40-2 the prior week. Charles and Jason each had an 8-ball break-and-run, FYI.

At Table 5 at the Down Lo, the Bulldogs were in the house taking on the Stickmen. The Stickmen were off to a good start, up 7-5 before the beer frame, thanks to Brian Norman's 3-0 victory. The Stickmen kept their league-leading beer frame streak alive, losing it for the 6th time in 6 weeks. This time it was Brian and Frank of the Bulldogs downing the Stickmen's Sundy and Mark. In the final 3 matches, the Bulldogs got the last 7 of 9 games. Frank finally lost one, ruining his chance at a perfect season, but Captain Steve got all 3 of his games, one of them via an 8-ball break-and-run. Ty wrapped it up with 2 wins giving the 'Dogs a 12-9 victory on the road.

Over at the Eagle's clubhouse, the Towne Lounge II squad was the visiting team. It was close before the break - the Lounge II team was up 7-5. Ed and Mike Von Ritter got the beer frame, 2 out of 3, against Mike and Jon of the Eagles. In the bottom frames, Steve Swim kept his hot hand going as he won all 3, giving the Lounge II a 13-8 victory.

The Tackle Box Spinners were across town at the Oasis, taking on the Dragons Thursday night. 2's were wild for the Oasis team, as every player got a 2, except for one who got a zero. If you're keeping score at home, that makes 12 points for the Dragons. It also means every Spinner got one point, except for Rich Jr. who got all 3 of his. Math Wizards will know their final score was 9. But, the Tackle Box played Bob again, who still hasn't paid, so he and his team forfeited another point. That officially made the final score Dragons 12, Tacklebox 8. The Spinners also played Zook in the beer frame (which they won), but because Zook isn't paid for either, they lost their beer frame win on paper (no win stats). I'm giving the team some leniancy because they are new, but according to our rules, if you play an illegal player you are supposed to lose ALL of your matches. If either Bob or Zook play another game before paying, the never-before-used rule will be enforced. The Bankers play them next - they might get an early Christmas gift if Zook or Bob plays.

The Oasis O-Team were also home at the 'O taking on the Durham Empire. Stacy, also hot this season, won all 3 of his to start the night, and his teammates chipped in 6 more to give them a 9-3 lead at the break. James and Slade won the beer frame for Stacy, as they defeated Jeff and Bob, 2-0. The Empire struck back in the bottom-half, as Bob got 3 wins in the #5 spot. #6 shooter Jeff got 2 for the Durhamites, but they left a player in Durham and had to forfeit the #7 slot, giving the Oasis 3 free points and a final score of 13-8.

Mike at the Oasis was kind enough to give me scoresheet from the 12/1 game when they were visiting the Towne Lounge I team. The official score sheet still has not been turned in by Lounge I captain, Steve, giving them a very short leash on future score sheet turn-ins. For the lack of effort, the Towne Lounge I team will now be donating an extra $9 towards the end of year Pool Party ($1 per win). As mentioned, the Lounge had a final score of 9, the Oasis 12. Jason Jones was hot again as he won his 3 games and helped to win the beer frame with Pat, as they beat Brian and Slade 2-0. 

It was a busy night at the Oasis as three matches took place there on Thursday the 8th. The Bankers were also home taking on the Last Call Pocket Raiders. It was tied 6-6 at the beer frame, thanks to Matt A. getting all 3 of his for the Raiders. Matt couldn't get the beer frame with Kevin L., though, as Barney and Jim W. took the honors 2-0. Jim W. did keep the momentum going in the second-half, getting all 3 of his games. Hugh and Bill chipped in the final 3 wins, giving the Bankers a 12-9 victory.

The Towne Lounge I had the bye last week, and now it's turn for their barmates, the Lounge II'ers. They will be starting their holiday break a week early on the bye. This is the last week before the fore-mentioned holiday break - no games 12/22 and 12/29. So end the year on a good note and kick some ass!


CMPL - Week #6 Results
Dec 7, 2011, 6:05 pm

Okay. There's 24 matches a season for each team. Half of those are home games - 12. One of those home games is against my team, the Stickmen. That makes 11. Four teams play at the Oasis. That makes 7. Nine of the teams play in or near the Oasis or the Down Lo, where I am at more than half of the time. So if my calculations are right, any given captain (or delegate there of) needs to make at the most 7 special trips to the Oasis to drop off the score score sheet, within 4 days of their home match, over a 7-month season. I need to make 26 Monday night trips to the Oasis in a season at a minimum. If there are scoresheets missing, I need to come back the next day, and/or the next day, and/or the next day... Gas is over $3.50 a gallon. Hopefully captains out there are catching my drift - I need scoresheets turned in on time, which is Monday at 5:00 in the Oasis box, or faxed to 343-0416, or emailed to You caqn leave it with me at the Down Lo since I am down there most Thursdays. If I'm not at the Down Lo, odds are I will be playing one of the Oasis teams. Or - if you want to trust an Oasis captain you just played, you can give it to him to turn it in if he is heading back to the O. Last year was almost problem-free, but this year is off to a bad start. Please help a brother out - get 'em in on time. Penalties will begin next week - $1 a point you earned, and/or forfeited points. Read the rules for more info.

(stepping down from my soap box and catching a breath...)

All right - here's the results I have for week #6:

The Eagles were home hosting the Last Call Pocket Raiders last Thursday. Both teams were tied at 6 heading into the beer frame. Pocket Raider Gary got all 3 of his games helping the cause. Kevin and Matt A. won the beer frame for the visiting club against Terry and Robin. In the bottom-half, Kevin "2", Matt H., and Tim finished the night off getting 7 of a possible 9 points. Hatt H. got all 3 of his. The Pocket Raiders played an un-paid player who got one point, so it has been deducted from their totals. Final score: Last Call 12, Eagles 8. 

At the Down Lo, the Diamondbacks welcomed the Dragons down into their subterainian lair. The Dragons escaped, but with just one win on the night. Thanks to Micah, "no skunk tonight!". Kenny Duff, Mike Karol, Paul, Mike Brandt, Rusty, and Bulldog each won all 3 of their games. Jeff Brun and Jason did manage to steal the beer frame away from Lee and Bulldog. Final score: Diamondbacks 20, Dragons 1.

Also at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were hosting their upstairs neighbors, the Lounge II. It was tied at the break, but the Loungers poured it on in the second half to run away with a 13-8 victory. Ed found a way to win all 3 of his games, and the beer frame with Shawn.

The other Down Lo squad, the Playa's, were on the road at the Oasis taking on one of the first-year teams, the Bankers. It wasn't pretty. George Barstow got the only point for the Bankers as the Playa's crushed the Oasis team 20-1. The Playa's were even mean enough to win the beer frame and drink for free. 'Sup with that? Charles, Kevin, Gregg, Jason, Larry, and Mike all got hat tricks.

Out in Durham, the Empire Club was hosting the other "rookie" team, the Tackle Box Spinners. Mike Dixon, Eric, and Troy each got 3-0 wins for the Empire in the first half, giving them the required 11 at the beer frame. Jeff and Bob Cody won the beer frame against the Spinner's Bobo and Jonny. The Eagles had to forfeit their last match due to not enough players, but still came out on top 13-8. (Actually, 13-6 because a Spinner player played but still hasn't paid yet so he and their team lost 2 points.)

No score sheet was turned in by the Towne Lounge I team for their match against The Oasis O-Team, so both team's stats and points have not been entered. Sorry to those affected. I will post the results once a scoresheet is turned in.

Good luck tomorrow night - unless you are a Towne Lounge I playa'. You've got a bye. For everyone else, I will be at the Down Lo if you want to drop your scoresheet off or any outstanding player dues.

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving Break! I spent most of it updating the database outside the website, which helps me double-check and ensure stats are correct, track payments, and most importantly sort top shooters. It was a laborous process that is finally complete and up to date. Click on the Beer Frame Tracker and Top Shooter buttons in the left-hand column to see the results. Hats off to Frank Jarvis - a perfect 15 for 15 so far and the current Top Shooter! Emails which include a .PDF copy of the complete and entire individual rankings, top shooters, and standings were sent out to the email addresses that I have. If you want to be included in the mailings or if you're not getting them and should be, register as a user, or forward me your address:

I was so busy with this I didn't have time for game re-caps and commentaries. If you want to see the scores and games, click on the Game Schedule button. I'll get back to those postings next week.

Only a hand full of players left unpaid - the Tackle Box, Last Call, and Dragons have been notified and their players should be taken care of this week. Points will be deducted if not.

Good luck this week - except for the Bulldogs. They have their bye week.


Nov 18, 2011, 12:29 am

Okay, sorry for the lack of stats and scores. Didn't receive a couple of score sheets until today (Thursday) and I've been watching my 3 kids solo for the past 2 weeks, and trying to do a thing called work at the same time. But now all the stats and scores are in and current up to Thursday afternoon, 11/17.

I'll try to do a re-cap of the past couple weeks this holiday week, and get a top-shooter list posted as well. I'll also be checking rosters and payments (yes, there's still some out there missing - you know who you are) in the down time as well. I'll allow a grace period until Monday (11/21) when I pick up this week's score sheets to get any outstanding money in. On Tuesday, 11/22, I will start deleting points for unpaid players who have played 'illegally'. I've been leniant so far, but the deadline has now been posted. Captains - you have been warned.

Have a good Thanksgiving! Games resume December 1st. Check the standings - they may be adversely affected if player dues are not turned in!


Week #2 Results -
Nov 4, 2011, 9:57 am

Still waiting on score sheets for Week #3 (11/3 games), so here's a recap of week #2 (10/27 games):

In a battle at the Oasis, the Dragons were considered the home team versus the Oasis O-Team. The O-Team was up 7-5 at the break, and held on to win 11-10 in a close, back-and-forth match. Jason and John of the Dragons got the beer frame from Aaron and Mike, 2-0. Slade, the O-Team's #7 shooter, got the winning point in his first game of his match to seal the deal.

The Stickmen were home at the Down Lo hosting the Eagles. The Stickmen started strong, going up 8-4 at the Beer Frame. Cele got 3 wins to lead off the night, and Louis got all 3 of his in the clean-up spot. Scott and Cele couldn't get the job done in the beer frame, as Donny and Jonny won the honors, 2-1. In the bottom-half, it was all Stickmen - winning 8 of the final 9 games. Wheez got 2, Madsack got all 3, and Scott finished the night with a 3-spot as well. Final score: Stickmen 16, Eagles 5.

Way back in the corner at the Down Lo, the Playa's were also home hosting the Tackle Box Spinners. The Playa's came away with a huge victory, 17-4. Charles, Leland, Gregg, Mikie, and Amer all got 3-0 victories, plus Charles and Kevin won the Beer Frame 2-0. The 4 points scored by the Spinners all came from the same family - the Boelen Boys. Rich Sr. got a point, and Jr. came up big with 3 points. The Tackle Box will finally host their first home game in week #3 against the Eagles.

Speaking of first games, the Oasis Bankers, who had a bye the first week, were on the road at Towne Lounge to play the Lounge II team. The teams were fairly close at the Beer Frame - the Lounge was up 7-5. Ed and Matt Gabbard beat Bill and Mark for the Beer Frame win, 2-0. Lounger Steve Swim came out swinging in the 5th spot, beating his opponent 3-0. Prana got 1, and Paul got 2, giving the Towne Lounge II the win, 13-8.

The Last Call Pocket Raiders were home versus the heavy-hitting Down Low Diamondbacks. The game was officially won by the D-Bax at the Beer Frame - they were up 12-0 thanks to 4 shut out matches by Mike Brandt Sr., Matt Fields, Jimmy Scott, and Paul Airth. Apparently Mike Karol and Brandt felt bad about the quick win, and lost the beer frame 2-0 to Matt and Kevin. I can't tell from the score sheet if Izzy made it 14 in a row when he shot in the 5th spot, but none the less he got 2 more wins. Pocket Raiders Gary and Kevin L. made it a little more respectable as they finished strong getting 2 of 3 each. Final score: 16-5 Diamondbacks.

Back at the Oasis, the Bulldogss welcomed in the Towne Lounge I squad. They weren't too hospitable - the 'Dogs went up 9-3 at the Beer Frame break, thanks to Keith and Chris' 3-0 showings. Pat and Tony did get the Beer Frame from the Oasis' Frank and Bryan, saving Stacy a few bucks. In the bottom 3 games, the Bulldogs almost swept it - getting the first 8 games, and losing the very last. Frank got 3, Bryan got 3, and Ty almost sealed it with 2 wins - Howie saved the sweep in the last frame. Final score: Bulldogs 17, Lounge 4.

Hopefully your team did good last night - unless you are a Pocket Raider, you were on a bye week. I'll post week 3 scores from last night as soon as possible, hopefully no later than Monday the 7th.

If you have any dues still to be paid, please take care of it ASAP.


Week #1!
Oct 25, 2011, 5:33 pm

Hey Everyone-

Hopefully it was a fairly stress-less start to the 2011-2012 season. It looks like everyone went to where they were supposed to go. 

Believe it or not, I still need to get money and rosters from some teams, listed below. Penalties (points and/or fines) will be initiated on Thursday if no attempt has been made. It is completely unfair to those that paid and made the effort to handle it on time, in addition to my hassles of being bill collector.
Tackle Box: 8 player's team dues and $40 bar fee
Oasis Bulldogs: 4 Players due, 4 Players paid, $12 credit
Empire Club: 7 player's team dues
Oasis Bankers: 7 player's team dues (haven't played yet, bye in week #1)
Oasis O-Team - Need to pay for Aaron (played beer frame on 10/20)
Towne Lounge I - Need to pay for Joe S. (played match on 10/20)

Please take care of this ASAP.
Here's what happened in week #1:
The Empire Club was on the road taking on the Last Call Pocket Raiders. Well, at least 2 of them were. The rest of the team didn't make it so the Last Call squad got an easy 11-0 win without even taking their cues out. No individual stats were recorded for the forfeit, and they opted not to play the beer frame. Hopefully everything is OK with the Durhamites - they are on a bye this week - hopefully this will give them time to get things sorted out. I'll let you know for week #3.
The Playa's were Down Lo hosting the Oasis Dragons. The Playa's were up 8-4 at the half, thanks to Tom LeClaire's 3-0 showing. Charles and Jason got the beer frame against Jeff and Aaron. In the bottom half, the Playa's kept pouring it on, getting 7 of the final 9 games. Larry Hiller got all 3 of his. In the end, it was Playa's: 15, Dragons: 6. Special note: Charles and Kevin each got 8-Ball Break-and-Runs ('B & R' boxes on your score sheets), starting off the season in style.
On another table at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were home hosting the new boys - the Tackle Box Spinners. Some familiar names are on their roster, though: Pops, the Boelen Boys (Jr. and Sr.), among others. The newer-looking Stickmen club were up 7-5 at the break, but Zook and Trevor beat Wheez and Madsack in the beer frame. In the final 3 frames, each team got 3-0 wins. Brian Norman and Wheez stepped up getting all 3 for the Stickmen, and Bob did the same for the 'Box. Final score was 13-8, Stickmen.
The third Down Lo team, the Diamondbacks (aka the Team Formerly Known as The Nuggets), were on the road at the Oasis taking on the O-Team. In a very close match, both teams were tied 6-6 at the beer frame. In the beer frame, Mike Karol and Paul teamed up against Aaron and Brian. The D-Backs came away with free beers. In the bottom-half, recently transplanted Brian Vignon got 2, and long-time 'O Troy got the deciding 3-0 victory in the 6th spot. Paul came back and got the final 3 to make it look close, making the final score 11-10 in favor of the O's.
Over at the Eagles Club, the 'Birds had some Bulldogs all over them. Thanks to B-Dog Keith's 3-0 lead-off performance, the 'Dogs were up 9-3 at the beer frame. The Eagles did strike back and get the aforementioned beer frame, as Robin and Rick beat Ed and Ty for the cold, frosty, free can of beer. The Eagles stayed stuck on 3 wins as the Bulldogs emphatically won the final 3 matches 9-0. Ty, Frank, and Steve won each of theirs 3-0, helping their team to an 18-3 victory.
Back downtown their was an in-house battle between Towne Lounge I and II. Both teams were locked at 6 going into the beer frame. Ed and new shooter Ben Beeler got the honors, beating Tony T. and an unknown player, in the scotch doubles match. In the second half, it was all Lounge II as newbie Ben got all 3 of his and Steve Swim got 2. Prana was waiting by himself at the table for the final match - the Lounge I squad didn't field a 7th, giving the Lounge II the victory - 14-7.
The new Oasis team, the Bankers, were on a bye this week, hopefully getting all their players in order. I'll post their players once I get a roster. The Empire Club will look to do the same this week, as they have the bye in Week #2.
Good luck this week - hopefully I'll have the above mentioned administrative work done and no penalties will be handed out. Again, I do appreciate those that have paid - thank you!!!

Almost there...
