The end of season party will be held at Gabe’s Bar & Grill: 2965 s. Sepulveda blvd, LA 90025 on Saturday, May 31 at 2pm
There will be:
a meeting for the general membership
Prize Money Payouts
Elections of officers and grievance committee
Additionally, as per a decision at the captains meeting, votes will be held on the following rule changes:
Current Rules (slop) vs. Call Pocket
If adopted, the Call Pocket rule will be worded as such - In Call Pocket, obvious balls and pockets do not have to be indicated. It is the opponent’s responsibility to ask which ball and pocket if he is unsure of the shot. Bank shots and combination shots are not considered obvious, and care should be taken in calling both the object ball and the intended pocket. When calling the shot, it is NEVER necessary to indicate details such as the number of cushions, banks, kisses, caroms, etc. Any balls pocketed on a foul remain pocketed, regardless of whether they belong to the shooter or the opponent.
Scratch On The Break – In The Kitchen (current rules) or Ball In Hand
This rule change would be straight forward, no other change necessary.
Scratch while shooting the 8 ball – Loss Of Game (current rules) vs. Ball In Hand
This would only apply to pocketing the cue ball while shooting the 8 ball. If the 8 is pocketed in the wrong pocket, or the cue and 8 go down in the same shot, it would still be a loss of game. This rule would only effect a shot where, when a player is on the 8 ball, he does not sink the 8 ball, but does sink the cue ball.
These votes will take place via a paper ballet. Your captains will be emailed the ballot in advance, however, voting ballots will be on hand at the event in case not everybody is able to print theirs out.
