Decisions to be made at the meeting are: (Most have been widely discussed. or surveyed)
  1. Wednesday 9 Ball.Keep it as a race to 19 or change to 17 games for an earlier finish
  2. Consider a proposal for 4 round playoff for SSPL Cup, after the 14 trophy rounds complete.
  3. Monday format and scoring changes. Agree to: Changed to One set of 23 game points, Or keep the 5 sets as is. Or modify to add both scores together so both sets & games. See detail and survey analysis.
  4. Ladder points - keep as is based on matches won ├ôr change to accumulated points. 
  5. Summer Season Schedule and the Rules Updates. See Fixtures or
  6. “Other awards” at EOS party on 28th April -Awards at Mexican / After at Pickled Liver 

The Schedule as WIP is on the web for your review. It is being updated as details get finalized. Red and Blue competitions are reconstituted based generally a team skill so your team may have moved. 

Our normal 18 round season is now only 14 rounds t(each team plays Home and away to qualify for a top of league standings Trophy. Inter comp friendlies played on byes will not count for scoring but will count for special awards. Once the ladder series is complete we then want to consider a 4 tier seeded elimination series.Within each competition, we have three elimination rounds (knocked out play friendlies) than a grand final to decide the SSPL Cup winner.

Congratulations everyone for the truly great season of the smooth coming together of what were teams from 2 leagues. HThe hiccups turned out as great positives to get us all enjoying playing together, especially the friendlies that achieved cross competition bonding too.

In a single community now, we just seemed to get on with it and adopt each other so well along with merging our social values. We are now looking forward to more and better in the coming season. 

Good news too is Hustler's Bangkok Pool League are working with us well to provide more competitive promotion opportunities for social league.teams with higher ambitions. The practical side now is 2 teams last season social league teams moved to Hustler's and 2 teams from Hustlers are playing in our social league. 

For the winners in the 5 competitions, of the winter 2017 season, we look forward to applauding them when we present their trophies at
