Erwin was recently diagnosed with cancer, and they will be holding several fundraisers for him and his family.  This is just one of them.  Erwin has been a long time member of the PTPL, playing this year for The Copa 2 team.  We would appreciate of you could pass this information along to your team.
PTPL has always “rallied” around their members in times like these and we know that Erwin and his family will be grateful for any assistance!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

As most of you have already heard, it is with the deepest sympathy that we need report the passing of Leon Shiner, a long time member and sponsor of the Pocono Tavern Pool League.  Leon was owner of Leon’s Fireside Cafe and has sponsored teams in the PTPL for over 10 years! Rest in Peace, Leon, you will be missed by many!

PostHeaderIcon Cancellation

Due to the continued snow fall, there will be no PTPL League Play this evening.  Our playoff schedule will be pushed back a week and we will continue next week with these matches.  Feel free to call Marni or Stan with any questions.

PostHeaderIcon Important Play-off Info

Playoff information

Just a few reminders about playoffs:

 

Playoffs

*Playoffs will consist of the teams with the  top 16 averages, and will be double elimination.

*Your placement will be determined by your team average.

*Playoff locations will be determined as follows (1) Higher average team will have home table advantage. If their table is not available then (2) at opposing teams if available (3) if that is not available, board will pick a neutral location which must be at league sponsored location.

 

These are the rules, as written, and agreed upon by a majority!  If there are any playoff scheduling conflicts, please contact a Board Member ASAP!

 

*Doo Wop 1, Doo Wop 2 and Hide Out have not qualified for the playoffs.

*There are several establishments that will be available to use as a “neutral location” should it come to that.  Please be considerate and make sure that the bar knows that there will be a match held there.

*Please remember to call or text Marni IMMEDIATELY following the match to let her know who has won.  The following weeks brackets can not be established until all winners/losers have been determined.

*There is NO NEED to submit score sheets as team and individual scores during the playoffs are not recorded.

*Brackets will be posted on the web site (ptpl.us) and also at Doc’s Lounge.

PostHeaderIcon Few Reminders

REMINDER:  There are a few matches that need to be made up.  Be sure to contact Marni IMMEDIATELY following the match with the team scores.
We will post PLAYOFF brackets as soon as all team scores are in, and we will also post a list of INELIGIBLE shooters for the playoffs. The brackets and list of ineligible players will also be posted at Docs.   Remember that only the top 16 teams advance to the playoffs.
We have been asking shooters their thoughts on the banquet/picnic.  The majority of shooters would still like it to be a picnic, but many people told us that June is a very busy month and the suggestion has been made, that we hold the picnic later in the summer.  We are looking into possible dates and possible alternative locations.  We welcome any suggestions and will keep Captains and players informed.

Dennis Columbo

It is with the deepest sympathy that I need to announce the passing of league member Dennis Columbo.  For those of you who didn’t know Dennis, he has been a member of the league for the past few years, shooting out of Doc’s Lounge in the past, and most recently, was a member of Burke’s.  He was a fantastic man, who always had a smile on his face.  He was kind to everyone and always displayed sportsmanship and honor.  He will be greatly missed.
We would appreciate if ALL teams in the league would observe a moment of silence for Dennis, at 7:30 Monday evening, before play begins.  It would mean so very much to him!
Should anyone care to pay their respects to his family, there will be a Celebration of Dennis’ Life at Famularo’s on Sunday, December 8th, from 2-5.  It is an “open house” and ALL are welcome.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact Marni at 570-972-5162.
Thank you.
