POOL-NET UPDATE!!....TAP keeps getting cooler and the place to play pool. Coming in early Spring (don't hold me to any exact time frame) It has been brought to my attention that a upgrade in Pool-net will include graphs and access to other player's stats. So you will now be able to match up on how a player does against different handicaps. You can do it ahead of time or at the time of the match with a quick look on your phones or tablets. Added cost to our members? $0. How cool is that?

IF YOUR NOT PLAYING TAP, YOU SHOULD BE!

Coming in March to the Portage area....TAP 3

SOMERSET DIVISION TEAMS....The Bottom Den WILL have a team this session. I put a bye week in for them and Dub's for the first week. The schedule remains the same as posted for the rest of the session.

NOTICE....Beginning for the Summer session 2016 and for the future national playoff spots will be awarded as follows.

1. Division winners for each session 
2. Title holder bracket winners only (2 each Titleholder) (if a division winner wins the 1st bracket the spot will go to the highest placing or in case of a tie the highest seeded team in the 1st bracket)
3. 2nd chance winners only (1 each Titleholder)

Gone will be teams placing highest from their own areas. This will stop teams from trying to just play for the 2nd bracket and watching their handicaps.

Teams can still earn multiple spots. This will cut the spots down by 50% and make teams try harder to win and it will be easier to manage.

SINCE THE SPRING SESSION HAS ALREADY STARTED IT WILL NOT TAKE AFFECT UNTIL THE SUMMER SESSION
