Absent: Ron Michaud, Tom Leblanc

 

Location: Cercle at 6 PM

 

Old Business:

 

1.        League Accounting & Collecting Fees Report final total in fund.

 

2.    Handicap Changes - Any handicap changes will be put in place for the Friday night league. It was felt that the player stats would be sent to the handicap committee to determine who should be adjusted. Sue will put this together with our suggestions for automatic adjustment and consider adjusting; she will also look at all the past results and add a column for the ratings of the players played.

 

The suggestion was

 

Automatic consideration:

To go up player MUST have a greater than +45% pockets made difference AND greater than 60% match wins

 

To go down player MUST have a greater than -45% pockets made difference AND less than 20% match wins

 

Consider change:

To go up player MUST have between +35% -- +45% pockets made difference AND between 45% -- 60% match wins

To go down player MUST have between -35% -- -45% pockets made difference AND between 20% -- 30% wins

 

No change:

Already at the top or bottom rating regardless of +/- % pocket difference

Player is between -35% -- +35% pocket difference and has between 30-45% wins

 

New Business:

 

1.    Player stats Final player stats are available. These will be used to vote on payouts. To determine, when there was a tied, who would win we used the player who had the highest percentage of pockets made for their matches played.

 

Most 6 pocket runs ($75) Choneyi Tenzin - 2

Most 5 pocket runs ($50) Ron Michaud - 1

Most 4 pocket runs ($25) Ricky Miller - 2

Most 3 pocket runs ($25) John Arel - 5

Highest percentage of pockets made ($50) Nicki Richard 95.24%

 

2.    Playoffs Draw wild card team To choose the wild card team the two teams involved the highest poker hand was used in a 5 card draw.

 

3.    Playoff Match ups - The team finishing highest in league play will play the wildcard team, second place will play third place. Therefore, Cercle 2 @ Cercle 1 and Alpine @ Cercle 3. All teams will play a second week as the two winning teams will play for first and the two losing teams will play for third.

 

4.    Presentation of awards to be held it was felt that since nearly all the teams would be playing at the Cercle on Thursday, August 17th, we should make the presentation of individual awards just before the matches begin.

 

Respectfully,

 

Sue Novak
