Thanks to Glen and his family for hosting this week! Scores are up on the PAPA site, and we’ve got an Adam/John tie for the season lead, with Les coming up close behind. Les is also still leading the Most Improved race, with Kim pulling ahead of Julian right behind him.
We’re at Luch’s next Monday after the long weekend. Have a great Canada Day, and see everyone next Monday!
Thanks to Josh for hosting this week! Scores are up on the PAPA site, and the overall standings are pretty close to what they were last week. Les has pulled ahead of Julian in the most improved race, but Julian is still leading the season with the new handicap system. We also had four new members join this week, so welcome to Karl, Tammy, Marc, and Jeff!
This week we also started testing a new rule where we allowed groups to switch games instead of waiting. Since we had 8 groups of 4 this time, there were no games where we needed a median, so it wasn’t a big deal to switch players. Going forward, we’re going to keep this in place, but with the following guidelines:
- If a game is marked on the score sheets with an Asterisk * then that game MUST be played to get a median (since it means we have groups of three.
- A game can be substituted if the game you’re supposed to play is busy with a league game, and will likely stay so for more than 5 minutes.
- All four members of a group need to agree to switch games.
If in doubt, ask before you swap a game out. At larger locations, we’re going to try to spread players out as much as possible, so swapping games won’t be as necessary, but at smaller locations, we’ll obviously have overlap, and it’s never obvious what is going to take the a long time on any given night. If you’ve got any other suggestions on how else to implement this, let me know!
Next week we’re back to Glen’s place in Newmarket. Glen hasn’t hosted in a while, but he’s got a great collection of Bally/Williams games. Have a great week everyone!
Thanks to Kim and Lori for hosting this week! We had 2 new players this time out, so welcome Brianne and Roman! Hopefully both of you get a chance to come out again. Scores are up on the PAPA site, and more players are showing up on the most improved listing, but Julian is still way ahead at this point.
Next week we’re back out to Josh’s place-have a great week everyone! Also, dates for the rest of the season have been worked out, so look for those on the Yahoo and Facebook calendars soon.
Thanks to Andrew (and Kirk) for hosting this week, and for keeping everyone fed! Scores for this week are up on the PAPA site, and now that we’re 5 weeks in we can start tracking most improved. As expected, Julian is in the lead with a commanding 24% over last season, just short of double Brian’s increase. There’s still a long way to go before the end of the season though, so lots can change.
We’re at Kim’s place next week, and he asked me to remind everyone that Brock is closed north bound from the 401, so you’ll need to work around that. Best bets are to go south on Brock to Baley , or go to Westney and go north to Kingston rd . Hopefully it doesn’t cause too much trouble for everyone. Have a great week!
