January 20th session


We had a great turnout and things ran pretty well.  The 15 minutes per session provides a quicker turn over of players and the limitation to 17 players is working well.

Few games were played therefore the ladder has not changed.

Thanks for the players that helped out the tables and equipment away.  Went a lot quicker!!

See you friday


Friday, January 13th 2017 session


Despite being Friday the 13th, things went ‘relatively’ well in our new location and added table, however some things became apparent.

The newly implemented 15 minutes per session required due to the large number of players is a big change and is still under consideration. 15 minutes still allows time to play 3 out of 5 matches for our ladder but it is tight

Talking about the ladder, very few matches are played. Remember we have 2 divisions, Division 1 is for the top 6 players and Division 2 for the mass and prizes will be awarded at the end of the season in June.

A reminder to all that under the city rules, we are not allowed players under 19. That is a shame and I am working on this.

Also, and for this I take the blame, 21 players as we had is simply too many. We will apply with more diligence the 17 player limit as a first come first serve basis. We need to rely on each and everyone of the players to insure that everyone gets their turn. At this time, I do not believe that a method (numbers, names on board, etcc…) to select the next players is practical but it may be required if players do not have their equal turns to the tables.

The new location definitely brings more exposure to the club therefore more walk-ins of different skill levels and experience are and will attend our sessions. I have no doubt that our regulars we will welcome them with open arms and a friendly game.

If you need pointers, or advice on equipment, let me know and we will work something out.

Finally, many thanks to the players that helped setting up and storing the tables and equipment.

See you Friday
