Pretty amazing everyone, we have 14 teams signed up for our fall league this year! Bryan and I will continue working our asses off to make sure that everything runs smoothly, but at times if it gets chaotic please bare with us :)

As usual, all of our results are posted online and rankings are done automatically. The link is here: http://wifoos.com/leagues/greenbay/standings.php?lid=3

Bryan can chime in with the exact rules when it comes down to substitutions, missing weeks, etc.

All I ask of everyone is that they try to show up 15 minutes before their first match is scheduled to start, and those times are a rough ETA based on each match taking 30 mins to complete. By all means feel free to show up earlier, but I know its nice to have a rough timeframe of when we think you'll be playing. No times are set in stone, however...

Matches will begin at 7:30pm, just like last year. This lets us reserve 6:00pm to 7:30pm as a timeframe for make-up games and warming up.

Our wonderful host, The Bar East, has promised us 3 tables this year! This is a huge perk for us, and it should allow for pick-up games to be played sooner as the night moves on.


The schedule for Week 1 looks like:

Matches for Week 11
Code:
(7:30pm) Brett/Amber vs Jake/Kurt
(7:30pm) Street/Donny vs Dave/Kevin
(7:30pm) Matt/Pete vs Amy/Erik
(8:00pm) Craig/Bob vs Bryan/Brian
(8:00pm) Charlie/Matt vs Bob/Dave
Andy/Chad BYE

Code:
(8:00pm) Street/Donny vs Brett/Amber
(8:30pm) Jake/Kurt vs Craig/Bob
(8:30pm) Dave/Kevin vs Charlie/Matt
(8:30pm) Amy/Erik vs Brandon/Jessica
(9:00pm) Bryan/Brian vs Andy/Chad
Matt/Pete BYE


Yags/Tony will not be available to play, so these matches will be made-up Week 2.
Code:
Brandon/Jessica vs Yags/Tony
Bob/Dave vs Yags/Tony

Below are the rules we put in place to have some structure, please take a peak at them. There will be a 35 question quiz on them the first night of league.

Lets have fun and play a little foos :)

League Overview:
Games will consist of 2 player teams preferably in an A/B style partnering. This is to help the game grow and have newer players play with a more experienced player to learn the game.

Generally you will have to play 2 matches per week; a BYE could happen depending on number of teams in the league

Each match will consist of 3 games played to the total of 7 points per game.

Handicaps will be issued to the teams based on placement in the league. See website for details


League Substitutions:
If you will be not able to attend a night at league and would not like to make up games you can get a sub to play for you
- Sub should be equal or lesser skill set then partner absent
- If only sub you can find is a higher quality player, a handicap will be set to compensate for skill change per League Admin
- If sub plays 4 consecutive times, they become your permanent partner your original partner then because a sub
- You can use players in the league to sub for you(if they do not have a match to play on the original team), or you can find your sub elsewhere


Match Makeup:
You can only make up one (1) week worth of matches. If you are out for no legitimate reason for two(2) weeks you will forfeit your matches from the first week you missed
Example: You missed week 1 and week 2 - The 3rd week you show up, you can only make up matches from Week 2, your Week 1 matches were forfeited

Some exceptions
-Sick
-Vacation
Just let the League Admin know ahead of time and you could play your matches out a week and then make up a week so you get to play all your games


Tardiness Policy:
League will start promptly at 7:30 in the order in which teams are listed for that particular week (See Website for matches played – Schedule will also be posted at The Bar East). For every 45 minutes you are late for your match 1 point will be added to the handicap.

If you know you will be late every week due to school / work or other reason, please let the League Admin know ahead of time so we can get other matches playing while your match is postponed. If you let us know ahead of time the point assessed due to tardiness can be waived if the opposing team has no problem waiting.

League Fee’s:
Cost of playing will be $10.00 per team plus quarters to play matches. One free drink card will be handed out for teams that play. All money collected is used to have end of league party, trophies, and payouts at the end of the league. NO MONEY IS COLLECTED BY THE BAR OR LEAGUE ADMIN.


Just kidding about the quiz.

Seems we had one team drop out, but 13 teams is still pretty sweet.. so now everyone gets a BYE! The schedule above is updated too for Week 1

Okay, another round of changes.. it seems that due to some substitutions going on tonight, the Dave/Kevin matches will be played, as Erik will be subbing in for Kevin.

I've modified the schedule above...

I'll also have it with me tonight!

The schedule for Week 1 looks like, remember handicaps have not yet been decided on yet:

Make-Up Matches from Week 1
Code:
(7:00pm) Brandon/Jessica vs Yags/Tony
(7:00pm) Bob/Dave vs Yags/Tony

Matches for Week 2
Code:
(7:30pm) Brett/Amber vs Charlie/Matt
(7:30pm) Craig/Bob vs Street/Donny
(7:30pm) Brandon/Jessica vs Matt/Pete
(8:00pm) Andy/Chad vs Jake/Kurt
(8:00pm) Yags/Tony vs Dave/Kevin
(8:00pm) Bob/Dave vs Amy/Erik
(8:30pm) Bryan/Brian vs Dick/Dan

Code:
(8:30pm) Yags/Tony vs Brett/Amber
(8:30pm) Street/Donny vs Andy/Chad
(9:00pm) Matt/Pete vs Bob/Dave
(9:00pm) Craig/Bob vs Charlie/Matt
(9:00pm) Dave/Kevin vs Amy/Erik
(9:30pm) Brandon/Jessica vs Dick/Dan
(9:30pm) Jake/Kurt vs Bryan/Brian


I realize Yags/Tony can't play two matches at 7PM, the time is simply a reminder that these two matches should be played ASAP that night, so if all 4 players could get there for 7pm that'd be awesome.

If there is any way we can play right away, that would be great. I forgot I had plans tonight. Sorry about the late notice.

We'll try, I would like to keep the scheduled times there for a reason so people don't try to play all there matches right away then we have chaos. If we can't play matches and the only one available is your or if other people don't mind switching time slots then its cool.
