Aaron steps down as President
Dec 1, 2009, 7:16 pm

Aaron Smith, the Chico Mens Pool League President, is stepping down from his position he has held for the past several years. Unfortunately, he will also be stepping aside from playing pool as well. With out getting into too much detail, his main reasons are to step back from the chaos and stress of running the league and focus more on his family. "Most weeks are not bad, actually pretty much self-run, but when altercations arise, especially ones that arise when your own team is involved, it becomes very stressful. It's hard to be the judge, jury, and executioner when friends and teammates are involved", said Aaron. The situation he refers to has to do do with an argument and shoving match that ensued between his Dragons and the Towne Lounge during their match on 11/19/09.

Scott Andrews, from the Nick's Stickmen, formerly 'unofficial' Vice President and statistician/web site manager, will be taking over for Aaron from here on out, until a proper voting can occur at next year's Captains Meeting in October. Unfortunately, his first order of business will be dealing with the fiasco that occured and handing out penalties for those involved. These penalties will be posted right here on the web site's front page on Wednesday. Please check back for more information and details.

Speaking for myself and the entire League, we appreciate all that Aaron has done for us. Many of the things he has done has gone unnoticed and unappreciated, all to help the league run so smooth year after year. If you do see Aaron around, be sure to thank him for all his hard work. He will still be involved in this year's end of the year party, as well as assisting Scott get the league going again next season.

Thanks Aaron!

Week 6!
Nov 20, 2009, 7:56 pm


1) The League website has now been purchased, which means the site is now officially Now that it is official, you can remember it a lot easier and share with your teammates, friends, and family to see stats and accomplishments. Please let your bar owner know about the site so they can check in as well. Be sure to register on the site to get email alerts, and allow access to the forums, and other areas.

2) I added a stat in the stats page for '8-Ball Break Run Outs'. If someone on your team accomplishes this, make a note on the home teams scoresheet so I can add it to their stats. Either put a big star in the win box, or circle it, or just write a note on the front of the sheet. If someone on your team has already accomplished this, let me know so I can edit the stats. Again, this is an 8-ball break and run-out (not just 8 balls in a row halfway through a match), and make sure it's on the home team's scoresheet, the one that's turned in.

Week 6 Results…

The Dragons of Oasis were home to host the Towne Lounge crew, and were leading 7-5 at the break, but faltered in the second half and lost to the Lounge 9-12. Dave Larabee, the Towne Lounge top-shooter, continued his hot streak by picking up a 3-0 win versus Micah. Steve Hale helped the cause with just one win, but it was an impressive 8-ball break and run, leaving Steve Hambeck helpless in his chair. The visiting team also walked away with a beer frame victory thanks to the Jason Jones/Kevin Kinell tandem.

The other Oasis home team this week, the Bulldogs, were hosting the Nick’s 8-Ballers. The ‘Dogs finished the night with a convincing 14-7 victory. Frank and Jim each chipped in 3-0 victories for the Oasis team, while newcomer Ed Bowers and his beer frame partner Chris saved Stacy at least one round of beers. Pops made his 2009-2010 match debut with a 1-game victory.

The third Oasis team, the Original O’s, were off on a trip down the Midway to take on the Empire Club crew. Their result was the same as the Bulldogs – a 14-7 victory. Stacy was the lone 3-game victor on the night. Ty and James helped their team enjoy a round of big-beers on the Oasis as they won the all-important halftime match.

The fourth Oasis team, the Nuggets, were on the road to take on the Nick’s Stickmen. Captain Mike Karol didn’t make the trip due to his wife’s illness. Obviously this was much more important for him than a simple pool league night. We all agree and wish him and his wife the best and a speedy recovery. His team did do well in his absence, winning the match 12-9. The stickmen were down 4-8 at the half, battled back after the break, but fell short by 2. Kenny Duff, essentially the top shooter in the league at this point, had another impressive 3-0 win to help his team. Cele and Scott battled hard in the beer frame and came away with a 2 out of 3 victory versus Kenny Duff and Jimmy Scott. Bill Rohrbach made his 2009-2010 debut with 1 win. The Nuggets all posed for the camera this night, so their pictures are now online.

Again, be sure to submit your own team pictures, or wait for Scott and the Stickmen to visit your team.

Results are in for the Down Lo vs. Last Call match - and it wasn't pretty, at least for the Hammerheads. The Down Lo put the smack down 15-6, and took the beer frame from Rich Jr. and Sr. All matches were 2-1 except for Jerry's - he got a 3-0 victory. As previously stated, with the big win the Down Lo'ers are back in first place. 

Obviously no games Thanksgiving night, at least officially. Practice in the down time and come out shootin’ in week#7!


Week 5
Nov 17, 2009, 1:17 pm

Week 5 results…

A lot of one-sided victories last week, with most of the wins by the visiting team again.

The Down Lo players headed over to the Oasis to take on the first-place Nuggets. The Down Lo jumped out to a quick 9-3 lead at the beer frame, and put it in cruise control the rest of the way bringing home a commanding 16-5 victory. Gregg, Jerry, and Kevin all came away with 3-0 victories for the Down Lo, and Charles got an 8-ball Break-and-Run to add to his stats sheet. The Nuggets got a lot of 1's and 0’s on their half of the score sheet, but did wrestle away the beer frame as Mike K and Kenny beat Charles and Jason. It was the Down Lo’s first beer frame loss of the season. With the impressive night, the Down Lo team jumps to first place in the standings, leading the Nuggets now by 2 points.

The Bulldogs were the ‘visitors’ as they took on the Oasis O’s at Chico’s Oldest Beer Joint. This one was tied 9-3 at halftime as well, and the Bulldogs went on and won 14-7. Chris and Jim each got hat-tricks for the ‘Dogs, but Brandon and Slade won the beer frame for Oasis - their first beer frame win of the year. Congratulations to Hersh for finally paying his dues.

The Stickmen of Nick’s headed north to the Last Call, home of the Hammer Heads. The Stickmen were up 8-4 at the half, then ran away with it in the second half for a 15-6 victory. For the Stickmen, Mike Madsack continued his winning ways with his 2nd consecutive 3-0 win, and Jesse got his 3rd straight 3-win match. Cele and Sundy lost the beer frame to Rich Jr. and Jason, but Cele did get an impressive 8-Ball Break-and-Run during his regular match to get something for the new stats column.

One of the two home teams to hold its ground was the 8-Ballers of Nick’s. They defeated the visiting Dragons 13-8, with Jimmy Soto leading the way with a 3-0 win. Brenon and Micah won the beer frame for Oasis, as Pops and Mike left another surprise for Nick’s owner Dave - a beer tab for 16 pool players.

The Empire Club travelled to Chico to take on the Towne Lounge. A very close match unfolded. They were tied 6-6 going to the beer frame, but with Howard getting 2 in the final match, the Lounge squeaked out a home-team win, 11-10. Pat Sands got a 3-0 win for the Durham group, the only 3-0 match for the night. Larry and James teamed up to get the beer frame win for the Empire Club.

Good luck in week 6!


Week 4...
Nov 11, 2009, 9:24 pm

Just some housekeeping, mainly just for Mike Clarke and his Oasis team – I never received Hersh Aseeja’s payment as promised on our league night, 10/29. He has played one match, and one beer frame (but zero wins, zero beer frames). I also noticed as I looked closely at the Oasis score sheets, there are two Brandon’s on his team – Riley and Olson. I have Brandon Riley paid, but nothing for Brandon Olson (who has only 2 beer frame losses). Unless something has been worked out with Aaron, or payment left with Stacy, these guys need to get paid to have them eligible to play anymore this year. As we all agreed and have upheld to, ‘you don’t pay, you don’t play.’

Week 4 Results…

Speaking of the Oasis club, they travelled downtown to take on the Down Lo squad. The underground team handed the O’s a 13-8 loss, with Charles ending the night with a 3-0 victory. Chucky and Jason also cleaned out the beer frame, to keep the Down Lo’s beer frame record a perfect 4-0. If you check the stats page, you’ll see that Charles has been a part in all of them. Slade represented his team well with a 3-0 victory of his own.

Over at Nick’s Nightclub, there was a battle between their two in-house teams – the 8-Ballers and the recently transplanted Stickmen. The former Quackers club won their home opener 12-9, thanks mainly to Jesse Uribe and Mike Madsack’s perfect 3-0 frames. Lots of 2’s and 0’s for the ‘Ballers, but no 3-game winners this night. Nick’s owner Dave was screwed either way in the beer frame, but Scott and Sundy made it official for the Stickmen.

The Hammer Heads of Last Call hosted the Town Lounge team this week, and stunned them with an 11-10 victory. Helping the cause for the 'Heads was Phil and Rich Jr. each getting 3 wins, Howie came through for the Lounge with 3 in the final frame to make it a close match. Steve Hale and Dave Larabee did come out with the beer frame for the Towne Lounge.

The Oasis had its own intra-bar matchup, this time between the Dragons and the Nuggets. Things didn't go the Dragon's way, as they fell to the Nuggets 7-14. Travis was the team leader for the Dragons, mustering out 2 wins. On the flipside, everyone on the Nuggets had 2 wins, except Moses with 1, and Jimmy Scott with 3 victories. Jimmy and Lee Taylor made it even worse by winning the beer frame. The victory keeps the Nuggets in first place, by a good 9 points over the Down Lo.

The final matchup of the week was between the Oasis Bulldogs and the Empire Club of Durham. The Empire collapsed, with a final score of 6-15. The Bulldogs won it by the 5th match, thanks mainly to Keith, Chris, and Dennis picking up all 3 frames. Not much to say for the Empire's side of the scoresheet, except for a big 'W' in the beer frame thanks to Pat and James.


As always – good luck in week 5!

The stats section is complete. The results are all in there, and I added some other stats, but I can't quite get another column in there to show percentage of wins to matches played, so I made a seperate page for the Top Shooters (left-hand column). In the stats section, you can always sort stats by clicking on the top of the column you want to sort. You can choose to see everybody in the league, your team, or any other team you want to check out by selecting it from the pulldown menu above. Clicking on hide/show legend will show what the abbreviations are.

Just got pictures submitted from the Down Lo team - they are now up. If you have pictures of your teammates, or any pool-legue related photos to put in the photo gallery, send them to me! Either or



Week 3...
Nov 5, 2009, 12:05 pm

Week 3 Results-

Just to update the previous article - it is official, Quackers is moving to Nick’s Night Club, and will be known as the Nick’s Stickmen. The team will be sharing the bar with Nick’s 8-Ballers. Ironically, in the first night as ‘The Stickmen’, they will be playing their new bar-mates. So on the schedule, replace all Quackers games with Nick’s Stickmen - no more games at Quackers. Please tell someone else on you team and pass the word. Sorry again for any confusion or inconvenience.

Now, to the results…

The aforementioned Quackers/Nicks Stickmen travelled to the Oasis for a showdown with the Original O’s. Quackers and the O were tied going into the beer frame 6-6, but took control in the final 3 frames to win 12-9. Jesse and Leo got 3 wins for the old Quackers team, and Troy got 3 for the Oasis team. The beer frame was also won by ‘Quackers’ - Leo and Cele won 2 out of 3. Without a bar to back them up with payments, this beer frame was important and personal!

The Down Lo went upstairs to take on the Town Lounge, beating them in their own bar. Same situation as Quackers - tied 6-6 halfway and finished with a 12-9 victory. Larry and Jason got 3 wins each for the Down Lo, no three-fers for the Lounge. The Down Lo did take home the beer frame before making the 30 second commute back to their bar, downstairs.

The third game, between the Dragons and Empire, went exactly as the other two matches above did - 6-6 tie, then the Dragons took over and rode it home for a 12-9 victory in Durham. Kenny Smith, recently acquired off waivers for the Dragons, started the night and his 2009 season with a 3-0 victory, as so did his teammate Micah. The Empire had plenty of 2 game winners on the night, but no 3-0 winners to mention. They did, however, steal the beer frame from Brennan and Micah, as they kicked them out the door and sent them back to Chico.

The Nuggets and Bulldogs had an exciting intra-bar match up. As would be expected, a close match developed. Again, another 6-6 tie at the beer frame, but Frank got a big 3-0 victory in the second half, Brian Augustine chipped in one, and Steve pulled out the tie-breaking win in the final game to give the Bulldogs an 11-10 win. Frank and Dennis each got 3 wins for the ‘Dogs, and the red-hot Kenny Duff got another 3 for the Nuggets, bringing his season to a perfect 9-0. The Bulldogs also won the beer frame for the night.

The 8-Ballers were home hosting the Hammerheads of Last Call. This matchup wasn’t as close as the others around town, with the ‘Ballers taking care of business in a 14-7 victory. Bud Pettit started the night off with a hat trick for the ‘Ballers, as did Krad to start the second half off right. The Hammerheads did have the last laugh as they footed Doug and his crew the beer frame tab.

As always, good luck in week 4! Drive safe…


News Flash!
Oct 29, 2009, 2:31 pm

Quackers management/owners have decided to remove the pool tables, in preparation for a new themed room with the arrival of the Gordita's restaurant next door (coming soon). Master's Music and Vending has been told to "remove the pool tables as soon as possible." Apparently this was a last minute decision, and was not under consideration before the season began. Quackers players even just received their new T-Shirts just last week. This move has totally caught the team off-guard. 

This means that Quackers bar no longer has a pool team. They are on the road at Oasis for the October 29th match, but on November 5th, they will be at a new home bar. Negotiations are being worked out with Nick's Night Club, but nothing official has been decided. We're sure this will come as a satisfaction for some, since playing in that 'cozy' room was pretty tight. The current team is ready to move on and start new, on some real-sized pool tables, with elbow room.

Captains - be sure to check here, or contact Scott ('Quackers' captain) for more information. Regardless, do not go to Quackers if you are a visiting bar.

Speaking for the bar and the Quacker's pool team, sorry for any inconveniences.


...and on to Week 2
Oct 26, 2009, 10:28 pm

Greetings from Las Vegas!

I’m out of town on ‘business’, but I was able to find some time to post the scores. I thought I had everyone’s sheets from week 2, but I didn’t get the Last Call vs. Dragons results when I swung by the Oasis on Sunday. I’m assuming it’s in the box waiting for me, so when I get back in town on Wednesday I’ll update their scores (unless Aaron can email me the results sooner). Thanks to the captains for getting them in, and early!

Week 2 Results-

Kind of a weird week - all the home bars lossed. A contrast to the first week where almost all the home teams won...

The Down Lo had another close game, this time versus the Bulldogs, winning 11-10. Keith got 3 from Charles to help the ‘Dogs get out to a fast start. For the visiting team, newcomer (?) Jerry got 3, as well as Jason C. getting all 3 in the final match-up, enabling the Down Lo’ers to steal the match from the Oasis team. The Down Lo team also managed to get the beer frame as well.

The Mad Ducks of Quackers lost a close one to Durham’s Empire Club, 9-12. James and Mike Dixon each had a hat-trick for the visiting team, and Cele got his first 3-win match of the season for the Ducks. Pat got 2 tough games against Leo in the final frame to bring home the win. The silver lining for the Ducks is a home beer frame win, and 'great' karaoke to follow.

The Town Lounge crew headed to the Oasis for a match against Stacy’s Original O’s. The Lounge beat the home team 13-8. Kevin and David Larabee each got shut-outs for the downtown club, while Joel got 3 for the Oasis team in the final match to make the score a little closer. Unfortunately Stacy had to buy even more rounds as his team lost the beer frame.

The Nuggets headed to the other side of town to take on Nick’s 8-Ballers, and came away with a hefty victory, beating the Ballers 15-6. Doug Mini salvaged 3 wins in the final frame to take the loss from disastrous to bad. As imagined with the score, there were plenty of 3-game winners on the other side – Paul Airth and Kenny Duff got their game on, as well as the father-son duo, Mike Brandt Sr. and Mike Brandt Jr.  It was Jr.’s first match of the year. Moses and Kenny did get the beer frame win for Oasis in this one.

The Dragons of Oasis headed North to take on The Last Call Hammerheads. The Dragons came away with a 14-7 victory. John Chamberlin and Travis each got 3-win hat tricks to help their cause. The Hammerheads did come away with the beer frame victory, sending the Dragons home with a receipt in hand.

I got some player profile pictures of some of the Empire players posted as they visited the Q. I’ll get yours (if you want) as we travel the town. If you have one you want specifically, or want me to steal your Facebook picture, let me know. Even better – send me one to

Go get ‘em in week 3!
