09/05/19   Changes to BCAPL World Championships for 2020

    Before getting into the changes for 2020, here's another reminder. if you want to play in the 2020 BCAPL World Championships in March, all qualifying games (40) must be completed by December 31st

    Hopefully you have all had a chance to look over the 2020 BCAPL World Championships email from csi that I forwarded a couple of days ago. There have been some rather significant changes in both pricing and structure.

Scotch Doubles
    There is no longer a Jack & Jill requirement for Scotch Doubles. Partners can now be made up of two women, two men, or a man and a woman. A 450 is a 450, whether it be a man or a woman, and that rating is based solely on performance, with gender playing no part in it. Every year I have guys coming to me wanting to play Scotch Doubles, only to find out that there's not enough women to go around. This new rule should give everyone an opportunity to play that wants to.

8-Ball Team Changes
    I have been advocating for three years that they to do away with the Trophy Division, but it was falling on deaf ears. Even this past July, they said it would never happen, but miraculously, it HAS happened and that's great. They created a new Diamond Division at the top and changed the names of the remaining divisions to match the Fargo Cap. By removing the Trophy Division, teams that fall into that 2750 cap will now have a better opportunity than in the past, when they were jumping over the Trophy and into the Gold where they were outclassed by 500 Fargo Points.

The Down Side -- Prices $$
    Team Entry Fees have gone up substantially for this coming tournament. I'm trying to go through and project costs, but we should have enough to cover the increases without raising shooting fees. Unfortunately, it will definitely reduce the amount of team spending money to divided up in Vegas.

There is no rule on our Monday night league regarding slow play, but there is a rule that can be enforced at Nationals. I have heard referees encourage other players and have been encouraged myself, as a player, to report slow play so that the matches don't get too far behind. I have experienced as much as an hour delay in a match start time. As many issues as we had on Mondays with late nights, may be worth keeping this rule in mind. Also heard complaints regarding slow play from players in the State tourney at the Casino - another reason to be aware of slow play. Here is part of the rule: 1-15 Shot Clock Procedures 1. There is normally no time limit for you to take a shot. However, a referee may implement a shot clock if they judge that you are delaying a match unnecessarily or in an unsportsmanlike manner, or if event officials require that a match proceed at a faster pace. (AR p. 84, 107) 2. You may call a referee if you believe your opponent is deliberately or consistently playing at an abnormally slow pace. If, after a reasonable period of observation, the referee judges that slow play is occurring, they will warn the offending player(s). After the warning, if the referee judges that the pace of play remains abnormally slow, they will place the player(s)on a 45-second shot clock.

Congratulations to everyone that did well at the Arizona State Championships this past weekend. Wildcat Cue Sports was well represented, and you should be very proud of your accomplishments!

Tony W08/08/18
On the matter of 11 or 12 teams...I would like the full 12 team season...if everyone would be respectful and stick to the playing areas and not try to hog up someone else's spot, we should be fine...

Keith Nickerson07/28/18
Teams are now forming for the 2018/2019 BCA season. If you are new to the league and don't have a current team to play on, leave your name and let us know you're ready to play!

If you are a team captain and have a team ready to go, let me know so that I can get you listed.

Thanks,
Keith

Is anyone looking for a scotch doubles partner for Vegas? My Fargo rating is 358. stormyonthesnap@gmail.com Thanks

Keith Nickerson04/17/18
While processing scores for last night’s games, I noticed that Ronnie Kidd had 3 (Break & Runs) and 1 (Table Run) for the night. Maybe we should have rules against showing off in such a way! But seriously Ronnie, nice shooting!!

Keith Nickerson03/28/18
The cash session starts Monday, April 2nd, and the schedule is now posted. There is a bye every week, so check it carefully. Table assignments will be on your printed score sheets.

Keith Nickerson03/23/18
We currently have seven teams committed to the cash session. Monday the 26th is the deadline, so If anyone else wants in, please let me know.

If anyone has noticed a change in your Fargo rating, it could be because I sent scores into FargoRate last week, that included everything up through 02/12/18. I have also noticed an increase in my robustness, which makes me think they must have run scores from the AZ State Championships at Casino del Sol in the last day or so as well.
