9 Ball Round 1 Oct 21 2015

Results for the week

The Winter 2016 9 Ball Competition got right into full swing this week. A great start with just the Rewind vs. Moonshine match is still pending. Pictured, are Wednesday standings with the round results and next round information 
You can also Download the tracking sheet for more detail.

Just a bit about the scoring

There has been some open discussion about simplifying the two tier ladder scoring, It was decided however to leave it unchanged, at least for this season.
In a 9 Ball match the first to win 19 games gets the match point. The second tier accumulates games won for all rounds to date as a % age to determine a clear ladder position. This basically sub-ranks teams with the same accumulated match points.
So don't think it is just about winning matches. As we saw last year, the race is not always about being the leader but it also fostered great camaraderie for the races within the rankings. And even if you lose on a night, don't toss in the towel; Good percentages on loss nights might make the difference for not only the ball in hand but a trophy too.

The New Tracking Sheet

Unlike the previous scroll down toilet paper style tracking sheet, we are trialling one formatted to let each team see on a line across the page, their results and their schedule for the rest of the season.
Yes it is a bit small, but unlike pool in our bars where touching is treated as a foul, a pinch out for a bigger display on your smart phone or CTRL ++ on a PC is a remedy for those of us who are starting to find it hard to see the ball.
Sorry about all the colours, It just seems it could be a good way to not only save the forests but have a “see at a glance perspective” with detail as well. We will give it a try and see how it pans out?


We also want to try to make communication simpler for captains. So please send this on to your team, friends and followers If they subscribe for updates at they will getp the scores and other league news directly in their inbox as we post them.
imageIt is Opt-In / Opt-out anytime, non-span system and we do not share subscribers emails with anyone, not even sponsor bars 
Another good way to get our news is to friend us on Facebook.  where we post other social happenings and information too. We are working on that to have results automatically posted there too. 

Promoting Our Good Luck

Here is a flyer that Bars and local Businesses have started posting to promote the enjoyment we all get in our community and let new players know we are about. If you want one or know someone who may like to promote us and don't have a colour printer just let us know.
