Today ... right now ... another beautiful day ... about 16 women began their day as home-makers, wives, girlfriends, employees, owners, Moms, friends ... and around 6:30pm they'll start taking on a different posture: (non lethal) gladiator-like ... at 7:30pm tonight the sound of balls snicking against one another ... cue up your mental music: Eye of the Tiger, Theme from JAWS, long drawn out drum roll ... this is it! Be at Hazel Manor tonight for the final showdown! Breaker's vs Hazel Manor ... all the teams in the league are great teams! But only two can end up here, on this night, and only one will get that last 8-ball ...

Good luck to both

Don't mix bad words with your bad mood. You'll have many opportunities to change a mood, but you'll never get the opportunity to replace the words you spoke.

1. Divide 50 by half and add 20.

2. Can you find the odd one out - "Stun", "Ton", "Evil", "Letter", "Mood", "Bad", "Snap", "Straw"?


Count the words in the above sentence. Now count the Fs in the above sentence. Add the number of words with the number of "Fs". What do you get?

HEY! Women and men!
Are you having a pool tournament this summer? BBQ? A poker run? Yard sale?
Holy cow, even a Tupperware party?

Send an email to the address on the comments page or post on the comments page and it will be announced on the home page. All summer long!

Ladies, men! Let's fill this space with things to do!

Men, got a home project and want to spread the word that you could use a couple extra hammers with guys on the other end? Or are you wanting to have a back yard fire and beers with the guys?

Let us know!

Hey MEN!!

Message from Karen:

A foul is an illegal movement of any ball caused by the player shooting the game. The ladies shooting in the current game must be the ones calling the foul and the foul should be called immediately when it occurs.

This year I have heard more reasons why fouls were not called. A few reasons include: "I didn't think she would make it," "I didn't have a shot and thought she could break up the cluster mess”, "she shot too fast," and "someone else called it before I had a chance." Those are comments that have been brought to my attention this year.

With this in mind please make your teammates aware of the fact that the ladies at the table who see a foul need to be the ones calling the foul when it occurs. Captains, please go over this rule with you team and make sure your team understands it.

Most importantly of all, call the fouls as soon as you see it and don't wait!

If your team still has questions, I would be glad to explain it or answer any questions.

From the president:
I called an officers meeting for 7pm October 7, 2016 to discuss the incident at the Shelby on Tuesday night, on the first night, for Pete’s sake!

I want to nip this in the butt due to issues last year and this now! What went on at the Shelby was definitely unsportsmanlike conduct! Happening at ANY bar on pool night is despicable!

We are a WOMENS league, not a bunch of CAVEMEN. And we have rules, along with common sense, that should be adhered to and listened to.

If you’re a member of this pool league, you MUST abide by the rules. If you’re on a roster and your team finishes its game and you want to go to another bar to watch a game, rules and common sense, especially common sense should prevail in dictating your behavior. For example: if you do go into another bar to watch a game, you can NOT go in and begin to incite trouble; can NOT tell others how to shoot; can NOT begin verbally assaulting other league members and employees of the establishment! And you especially can NOT physically assault someone! This behavior will NOT go without repercussion!

I spoke to both teams, about 12 women total, and all of their descriptions of the incident at the Shelby were the identical.

Actions have been taken and these will continue to be the actions taken regarding any future incidents:
1. Any willful display of or participation in unsportsmanlike behavior will result in one suspension of YOU from your team’s next pool match night. Your TEAM is not suspended for one night! The OFFENDER is suspended for one night.
2. A second occurrence involving one who has been previously suspended in the pool season from one of their team’s pool league nights will be suspended from the ECWP for the rest of the season.
3. Any physical fighting or menacing shoving which could possibly lead to a physical altercation is an automatic suspension from the ECWP for the rest of the season.

As a result of the incident at the Shelby, action has been taken with a one-night personal suspension of one player and suspension of another for the rest of the season.

Please remember to follow the rules.

If you have any questions about the results of October 7th’s decision, feel free to call me at 724-674-9829.

Let’s all have a great and more uneventful season.

Thank you. Karen Lemanski, ECWP president
