1. The Titleholder location will be the Quality Inn in Somerset (the old Ramada Inn where we used to be) There is a charge for having our event in the tropical garden.

2. Room rates for all dates will be $65.99. I really need the players to stay here!! There is no resturant at the hotel anymore so players can bring fast food, etc in. NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED. All matches will need to be completed by 1 AM so there will only be one round played on Friday night at 6 PM as always and then Saturday at 9 AM, Noon and 4 PM. Final boards will start at 8 PM or earlier. 

3. FOR THE FALL.....Dues will go to $8 per player to cover the added costs. With this extra $1 there will be no more green fees, hotel costs will be covered and at least $500 will go to the 2nd chance event plus there should be some money left over that will go in the Titleholder prize fund.

4. After our first event in May, they will look things over and make a assessment and possibly lower costs, etc. They said they had problems with a pool event in New Stanton and I told them what my competition does should not reflect on LH TAP or myself. We are better then that outfit. Any players acting like idiots or causing room damage will be banned from LH TAP for whatever time I think fits the crime.

Summer Playoffs

Bedford division. ....Rookeez 1 wins the division with 2 out of 3 wins tiebreaker over Steeles this Summer...Playoff will be Judys 2 at Pleasantville VFW at next Monday. Pleasantville VFW has home table
Twin Rocks/Portage
Due to the Grove 1 not getting a score sheet in last month they were deducted 1 win from theie total which puts them in the playoffs (very important to get those scores in on time...no excuses with the phone app and email available) They have a tie breaker over the Country Inn Shooters so they will have home table vs. LaRues Alkies..LaRues Coalition at CI Shooters
Woys Boys at Slammin Sam's New Era
Trophys Hastie at Southmont Salts Boys
30 Something wins the division with a 1-4 and 4-1 over Trianon. In cases of both tied the win always goes to who won the last time. 
Playoff...WS Railriders at WS Ballbreakers
