singles schedule posted

 

-Default play location is Fat Cat’s Billiards, if both players agree they can play anywhere, but the fees at other venues will be on your own dime.

 

-We will be utilizing FaceBook Messenger and group texting to communicate schedules, if you have not friended me on FaceBook make sure you are in the FaceBook Group Blue Ridge BCA. You will start to see text messages from me with grouped messages with your opponent.

 

-You will need to schedule with your opponent, the only restrictions in scheduling is times when APA is actively playing or they are full (Monday and Friday nights are not available). We do have a 2 week window in case others decide to join, this can affect the schedule. This will require ALL of you to communicate with each other, I will facilitate but once you have your opponents contact information it’s up to both of you to work out a time.

 

-You can schedule all of your matches in advance and play them whenever you want, there should be no or very little hardships.

 

-All fees are due by the end of the week it’s scheduled (on Saturday). You can pay in advance with cash (preferred) or by using PayPal (fees@blueridgebcapl.com). I can meet with you to collect fees. If you have a bye week you do not owe fees for that week. I am considering adding an extra point to every that pays in advance for the full session.

 

-We did not get BCApl sanctioned, we came up 7 players short, therefore FargoRate is not in effect. I am going to try to use LMS for scheduling and score keeping, this may change at a later date. If we can get the additional 7 players then we will need to collect $20 per player to pay for sanctioning.

 

-Format is Lagger’s choice, 8, 9,or 10-Ball, race to 7. If you and your opponent agree you can play whatever game type you want, otherwise, it’s up to the winner of the lag. If you play 1-pocket then set the race to 3, I will work out the points. Rack  your own and winner breaks. See the CSI official rules on all rules of each game type. CSI/BCA is significantly different from APA. See the link on the resources tab for BCApl 8-Ball differences. 9-Ball is all slop. 10-Ball is called, 10-ball on break is not a win and gets spotted. Cue ball fouls only.

 

-Template racks are allowed but you must allow your opponent use of the same rack if they request it.

 

-Keep track of each game won and any break and runs. Utilize the Singles score entry on the website (or direct link to the Google Form) to fill out after the game ends. Each player must submit the form, no exceptions! This will allow for consistency and cross checking.

 

-This is a point based handicap system, see the link in resources for how it works.

 

-Ask questions! Don’t be afraid to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
