Week #2 and #3 Results
Nov 9, 2016, 1:33 am

Sorry about that... here's what happened in week #2 (Oct. 27th):

The Stickmen were home versus the Bulldogs at the Down Lo. The two teams traded 2-1 wins and the Bulldogs were in the lead 7-5 at the break. Wendy and Scott won in the beer frame, 2-1, against Ed and Steve. In the bottom-half, the Bulldogs went off and got 3 wins from Ty and Steve Smith, but newbie Jeremy got 2 more for the Stickmen. Final score: 13-8 Bulldogs.

Over at the Oasis, Team Chaos (Bankers) were home against the Dragons. It was all 2-1 matches throughout the night and the Dragons came out on top 12-9. Sid and Walter teamed up for the Dragon beer frame victory against Rich Jr. and Barney, 2-0. 

The Outlaws were also at home as they welcomed in the Down Lo Playa's in the match of the week. It was almost over in the first half as the Oasis got to 10 points at the break thanks to Kevin Lombard's 3 points and Izzy's 3-0 win. Kenny and Tree got 2 as well in the first half. Kevin and Jason did get the beer frame, though, beating Mike Karol and Jimmy Scott 2-0. Paul put the Oasis over the top with 2 wins to help make the final score 14-7 Outlaws.

Down at the Eagles, the Shenanigan's Rack Pack made the trip across town for week #2. The 'Pack shot out to an 8-4 lead thanks to Jeff W.'s 3-0 win in the 3rd spot. Rob and Drew won the beer frame for the Rack Pack against Chuck and Chris S. - 2-0 none the less. But in the second-half the Eagles stormed back. Jon COX got all 3 of his games, Terry got 2 of his, and captain Mike Daniels got the first of his 3 games to get to 10 points. Gary fought back and got the 2nd match to make it 10-10. Mike Daniels pulled it out and got the last match to give his Eagles the 11-10 win.

In another late one at the Down Lo, the Damned were home against their upstairs neighbors, Duffy's. Goran and Tony T. each got 3 wins in the first half, but so did Ed for Duffy's. It was 8-4 at the break. Steve and Derek got the beer frame, 2-1, against Ed and Kevin. Derek, Steve McGrill, and Satyr each got 2-1 wins in the bottom half to get the final score to 14-7 Damned.

The O-Team were on the bye week Oct. 27th.

Here's what happened in Week #3, November 3rd:

It was D-Lo vs. D-Lo as the Damned were taking on the Playa's last week. The Playa's were up 7-5, mainly due to Kevin Cibart and Charles W. getting all 3. Richard Nixon came back and got all 3 for the Damned, and Satyr got 2 to make it close at the break. Jason and Leo got the beer frame against Dusty and Tony T., 2-0. Leo stayed at the table and got all 3, then Tom LeClaire got 2 out of 3 to get to 12 points. Steve McGrill got the final 3 points to make the final score 12-9 Playa's. 

The Oasis's Team Chaos was home versus the Eagles. Bobbo was the only player to get all 3 in the match. Those 3 points were enough to get the Eagles to a 12-9 victory. Bill Ide and Mark Edwards got the beer frame, 2-0, against the COX and Dylyn pairing. 

In the match of the week, the Bulldogs were facing the Oasis Outlaws. The two powerhouses were tied at 6 at the break. Brenon got all 3 for the Bulldogs, Matt 'Tree' got all 3 for the Outlaws. Mike Karol and Kenny got the beer frame, 2-0, against Ed and Robbie. Steve Smith got 2 wins, but Kenny came back and got 2 more. Izzy got the first win in the 7th frame to get his team to 10, Ty came back to get his team to 10, and Izzy put his Outlaws over the top with the final victory. 11-10 Outlaws.

Also at the Down Lo, the Stickmen welcomed in Stacy and the O-Team for week #3. Stacy helped his team by being the only player with 3 wins, also helping to make the score 8-4 O-Team at the break. Brian V. and Dave Napier got the road beer frame win, 2-0, against Madsack and Cowboy Rob. But Wendy and Keith came back for the Stickmen with 2 wins each to make the score 10-8 Oasis. Scott needed all 3 in the final match for the home win and in classic Scott fashion, it didn't happen. DJ got 2 out of 3 to make the final score 12-9 O-Team.

Upstairs at Duffy's, Ed and the crew were taking on the Oasis Dragons. It was all tied at the break. Micah got all 3 of his, but Woot came back and took 3 himself. The other guys traded 2-1 wins to leave it 6-6 half-way through. Ed and Kevin beat Rob C. and Micah 2-0 in the beer frame. Walter then got 2 for his Dragons and John C. got all 3 of his to get to 11 points. Steve Swim got all 3 of his in the final match to get Duffy's to 10 points. Final score:  11-10 Dragons.

The Shenanigan's Rack Pack had the bye in week #3. The Bankers, I mean Team Chaos, have the week off for week #4.

Good luck to everyone else this week.

I'll get some printouts and top shooter lists after this week.


Week #1
Oct 26, 2016, 12:10 am

...and, we're back.

The Shenanigan's Rack Pack started the season at home last week against the Dragons of the Oasis. The Dragons were up big after Jeff got the first 3 of the night, Micah got 2, and Jamie got all 3 of his. But Rack Pack Mike Dowd came up and got his team back on track with 3 wins of his own, making it 8-4 Dragons at the break. In the beer frame Steve Hambek and John Chamberlin beat Mike D and Matt Altenberg 2-1. The final score ended up being Dragons 13, Rack Pack 8.

The Down Lo Damned were home in week #1 taking on the Oasis Bankers (or Team Chaos?). The Damned were up 8-4 at the beer frame thanks to Tony's 3-0 win. Steve McGrill and Dereck beat league newcomer Siwa and Rich Sr. 2-0 for the honor. Siwa and Derek stayed at the table to go 1 on 1 in the 5th frame. Dereck won 2 out of 3, and McGrill pitched in one more in the 6th spot. That got them to 11 points - which was good because they didn't have a 7th shooter. The Bankers got the 3 bonus points but it wasn't enough - Damned 11, Team Chaos (?) 10.

Over at the Oasis, the Outlaws were welcoming in the Stickmen for week #1. The match was tied 6-6 at the break. Cowboy Rob got the first 3 of the night, Cele got 2 out of 3, but then Kenny Duff came back and got 3 wins, and Tree got 2 more. Scott and league newbie Jeremy Hedlund teamed up in the beer frame and defeated Izzy and Ricky 2-1 for a road beer frame victory. In the 6th frame Bulldog got 2 out of 3 against Wendy Kaplan, making her Men's league debut. Paul Airth got all 3 of his games. Ricky finished with 2 more. Final score, Outlaws 13, Stickmen 8.

Downstairs, downtown, the Down Lo Playa's welcomed in their upstairs neighbors, Duffy's Tavern. The teams traded a few 2-1 games to start the night, but Larry Hiller got all 3 of his to send his team to the beer frame up 8-4. In that beer frame, long time playa' Leo Oviedo was back this season paired up with newbie (to our league) Charles W. They faced, and beat, Kevin K. and Ice Cream 2-0 for the free beer. Leo stayed at the table and shot 5th, winning all 3 games. Charles W. got 2 in his debut, and Kevin Cibart wrapped up the night neatly with a 3-0 win. Final score Playa's 16, Duffy's 5.

The Oasis O-Team were the other home bar team playing at the Oasis in week #1. They were hosting the Eagles. The O-Team almost beat the Eagles in the first half as they tallied 10 points to the Eagle's 2. Stacy and DJ each got 3 wins, Joel and James each got 2 wins. Brian Vignon and Joel played the beer frame against Chuck and Chris Singleton. The O-team got the free beer by winning 2-1. Philo has jumped teams this year, moving from the Damned to the Oasis. He got all 3 of his games in his Oasis debut. Dylyn and Chris S. got the score to semi-respectable as they got 2 wins each to wrap up the night. Oasis 15, Eagles 6.

The Bulldogs had to start the season on the bye week, but they'll be back in action next week versus the Stickmen. The O-Team has the bye week for week #2.

For everyone else - good luck. Remember, it's the second week - all dues (players and bar sponsorships) are now officially due. I'll be at the Down Lo Thursday night if you want to drop off fees, or I'll hopefully make it to your bar/match with my receipt book. Please have your payment(s) ready to go.


New Season!
Oct 17, 2016, 12:51 am

Okay, the schedule is finally done and online - just click on 'Game Schedule' in left-hand green column. You can see the whole schedule, or click on team filter to select just your (or any) team.

Sorry for the delay. We are down to 11 teams. We will be without Cal's Ball Busters, the Tackle Box, and now the Empire is dropping out. New captain Tom was going to have maybe 6 players, and making the right call, decided to drop out. Better than having 'long' drives and forfeits left and right and/or dropping out mid-season. Maybe next year we can get a team fielded out there. Because there are an odd number of teams, and only 11 teams, no conferences this year and everyone will play everyone twice - one at home and one away. And because of the odd number, bye weeks are back. Sorry. Good thing is that there are hardly any holiday interferences so the Thursdays roll right along (except for Thanksgiving and Christmas week) and wrap up on March 30th for the regular season, and a little into May for playoffs and the pool party (which will be at Down Lo). The Charles Lintz Top Shooter tourney will also be at Down Lo the week before. The All-City Memorial Tournament will happen the dead weekend before the Superbowl on Saturday January 28th, at the Oasis.

The playoffs and pool party might still be altered depending on the CWPL and their schedule, so don't set the schedule in your phone quite yet.

So there you have it - games start on Thursday, October 20th! T-minus 4 days! (Except for the Bulldogs, they have the first bye by random draw. All bye weeks were actually Empire games, but last minute I had to switch Durham for bye weeks). I'll have binders available for the captains on Tuesday at 5:00pm. They can be picked up at the Oasis behind the bar. Just ask Stacy, Barney, or the bartender.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something so more than likely another post will happen before Thursday. Remember to bring your $20 player dues to your captain on Thursday - I'll be making the rounds collecting payments. FYI, the players shown on the teams on the website are the ones that have paid so far (and the captains, even if they haven't paid yet). If you don't see your name, you haven't paid and stats (wins/losses) will not be credited to you until payment is made.

Good luck this Thursday, and for the 2016-2017 CMPL Season!

Wow, that was a fast summer!

It's almost October, which means it's almost time for Thursday night Pool League!

We first need to get things in order for the new season. We need to find out what bars are in/out, collect payments, make any rule changes/additions, argue for an hour or two over completely trivial items no matter how logical or illogical they may be, see who can talk the loudest - you know, the Captains Meeting! That meeting will be held this year at the Chico Eagles Club at the corner of 20th street and Fair/Mulberry Streets, October 6th. It will be bingo night in the hall next door so plenty of food and of course booze will be available. The fun all starts at 7:00pm. Each team can have a maximum of 2 delegates attend (ideally the true captain and his co-captain, or other knowledgeble teammate). Any measures that needs to be voted on will include just one vote from that team/bar/captain. Captains and/or delegates not in attendance will not cast a vote.

I don't see the price per player changing much - it should be still the ridiculously low price of $20 for the SEASON - which could be 20 something nights of pool, 3 games per night, and a free beer each night. It makes me chuckle each time I type this. The one free beer/well-drink each night alone would be more than $60! This entire SEASON price is about 2.5 NIGHTS of other leagues in town - I'm just saying, it's dirt cheap, so please don't ever complain. And if it does go to a vote to raise it, it will still be around 90% less than similar leagues. If you could please turn in this small donation to your team captain in a timely matter, I would appreciate it. Other leagues do very well collecting on a nightly basis, about 25 nights or times during the season. I don't see how it can be so difficult in paying $20 or so just one time for a season and be done with it.

Get a receipt from your captain that you paid - I will be making sure all payments from the captain to the League include a written receipt. In the off chance that I'm drinking when we see eachother, make sure you get a receipt from me no matter what proving your team paid. I don't want any loose strings or hurt feelings this year. 

The first league night SHOULD be the 3rd Thursday of October, so October 20th, 2016. The rest of the schedule is still up in the air until I find out how many teams are going to be active this year. 

Let your captain know of any complaints or suggestions he can bring to the meeting, or feel free to call me directly (966-5632) or email It will be kept confidential, if necessary.

That's all for now. Check the website ( regularly for any changes/updates.

Again, 2016-2017 CMPL Captains Meeting - Thursday night, October 6th, 7:00pm, Eagles Hall.




Just a Reminder...
Jun 3, 2016, 6:10 pm

Just a friendly reminder...tomorrow!


May 31, 2016, 3:49 pm

The Tackle Box owner decided today (Tuesday) that if we brought our tri-tip and pot luck dishes it would be too much competition for his snack bar and the event wouldn't be profitable enough for him. Plus the kegs of beer we buy from the bar is generally/historically bought at cost which reduces his beer sale profits - it would have been great for the tip-receiving bartenders, but not the bar itself. I can't afford to feed everyone through his snack bar with just the $300 I have budgeted each year - insert gratitude for Mike Clarke and Chico Locker & Sausage HERE. So he decided this afternoon to pull out and cancel the event at his Tackle Box. 

As the Oasis, Down Lo, Empire, and Eagles know, the event is not meant to be a purely profitable 'gift' for the bar. It's still profitable, probably more than a standard Saturday early afternoon, but it's more of a way for the bar to get exposure to the 200 players and their guests and the guest's family and friends. As the annual sole host, it's also a way for that bar to thank ALL the players, not just the home team, who make the bar's Thursday and Tuesday nights throughout the league seasons profitable almost year-round. So anyways, Tackle Box is out.

Stacy, who's been around these blocks a few times, took this opportunity with open arms and would like to invite you and your friends to the Oasis Bar & Grill this Saturday afternoon from 1:00pm - 6:00pm or so. Everything is exactly the same - free beer, free tri-tip with pot luck dishes, free pool, trophies, awards, and of course the famous raffle - just back over to the Oasis. This also means more tables for open play and tournaments, so we'll look at this disapointment as a positive for the players.

Be sure to thank the Oasis, and of course the Oasis bartenders who will be raking in the tips now, by purchasing drinks and food outside of the free ones provided. Buy Stacy, your teammate, Meredith, your friend, the champion Bulldogs, the random girl at the bar plenty of shots, purple hooters, Beam & Cokes, and those delicious Oasis french fries. They are accommodating us last minute.

Sorry for any inconvenience - we are going to lock down these issues at the next Captain's meeting. The Tackle Box will not be in our normal rotation of party host bars for at least 3 years, if they want to do this in the future at all. It's ultimately up to them.

So again, thanks for your patience and we'll see you on Saturday - at the Oasis, 1:00pm!


Here's the NEW flier with the Oasis changes...

Let me know if you have any prizes you can donate for the raffle!

If not, be ready to buy a bunch of tickets - we're going to have one of the best cues ever raffled up for grabs this year - one of five cues! Plus, of course, a ton of other cool stuff. Awards, beer, wine, pool (on FOUR tables!), and some great food. 1:00pm Saturday!

Walter Dorsey

2015-2016 CMPL Charles Lintz Top Shooter


Congratulations to Walt for making it all the way through what started as the prestigious Charles Lintz Top Shooter Tournament, but will be remembered as the wet-n-wild one of 2016. His concentration and pure skill was unmatched as he took on some of Chico's best. Here's what happened on May 12th (at least on the pool tables):


Walter defeated Kevin Cibart in the first round to move on to round #2. He played Leland who managed to dry off and defeat Philo in round #1.

Joel Russo was nudged out of the tournament by Eric Nichols in the opening round. Eric went on to face Kenny Duff, who defeated Mike Brandt in round #1.

Walter beat Leland in Round #2 to move on to the Championship.

Eric Nichols defeated Kenny Duff to also move on to the Championship.


In the race to 5 final match, Walter beat Eric 5-1 to take home the 2nd annual Charles Lintz Top Shooter trophy and a cool $100 cash. Congratulations again, Walt!
