If you know of anyone who wants to bring a new team into the BCBC League,
please have them call Ron Miskulin, League Operator for approval at
The following changes were agreed to at the last meeting, and have been added to the rules.
1. If a player is using a bridge and before, during or after the shot, touches more than 2 balls with the stick, the bridge or both, His/Her opponent shall have the choice of calling a foul or restarting the game with the aggrieved player breaking.
2. We are adopting a 1 minute shot clock and a 1 minute Time-Out. If a player feels his/her opponent is taking more than the allotted time to take a shot or taking too long with a time-out, he or she should notify the Captain of the opposing team (not the opponent) that too much time is being taken. That is considered the warning. If this occurs again during the same game, a foul can be called. Almost everyone agrees that we need to speed up play and this should help.
The Whiskey Rhythm team has changed their name from Straight Out of Whiskey to Whiskey Shooters.
Jamie Kolar is Captain of a new team out of the Ambridge Falcons called Chalk is Cheap.
The late fee for turning in money to the League was raised from $10 to $20 in an effort to encourage timely payment of League dues.

A message from League Operator, Ron Miskulin
There have been several teams not turning in their weekly scores. Some have never turned them in.
As a result, Bob can only take scores from one team and not their opponents.
What is happening is that Break and Runs and 8 Balls on the Break are not being reported. Starting with week 11, if a Break and Run or 8 Ball on the Break are not reported that week on your score sheet, you lose them. We will not go back weeks to look up or call other teams to see if one occurred. It is up to the Captains or persons reporting the scores that week to show the Break and Runs and 8 Balls on the Break.
There are several ways to turn in scores:
1. By email form sent to the Captains each week
2. By taking a clear picture and send it to Bob
3. By Leaving the sheets at the Conway Lounge
Scores must be in by 1 PM Friday. Any scores turned in after that time are too late !
|Bennie & the Jets,
formerly at the Ambridge Polish Falcons, will now be
playing at Fred's Divot.
Please make a note of this move if they are on your schedule.
For those of you
who drop off money at the Conway Lounge:
Just leave the score
sheets with the bartender
Team Captains who insist on being behind in their team's dues, will no longer get a text message reminder to help them avoid a penalty of $20. I've texted teams for over a year now and it doesn't seem to help with the problem. You can text me to see what you owe. If you become 3 weeks late and I don't receive the dues on or before the third Wednesday you're behind -- the penalty will just be added. Then I must receive FULL payment plus the penalty at the Lounge by Monday night before the 4th week, or your team can't shoot that week.
It's the same teams having a problem keeping current.
For those of you who pay in advance or pay in a timely manner, Thank You and please disregard this message. For those who are not keeping in good standing, please try to do a better job or turn your team over to someone else.
Captains are responsible for their teams' dues.
If you feel that this is unfair, take your team to the APA or TAP organizations and see how long they let you go without paying. We currently are a 26 team league that started out with 16 teams and have other teams interested in joining with us. I am growing weary of constantly going after weekly dues that are owed to the league. We will be just fine without a few teams if it comes to that.
Thanks, Ron Miskulin
