September rolls around that the air is so thick you struggle to get the ball in fl ight. Miraculously, you arrive at the parking lot to tee off at 6:00 a.m. In the meantime, our organizers of summer play Catherine Tinerino-Moore and Marcia Gaudioso, have double checked the pairings, fi nalized the starting holes and get us all pointed in the right direction to begin our round. Following play, Susan Schaeffer has been entering our scores for us during the summer months. Thank you Catherine, Marcia and Susan for your time and hard work in providing us with well organized summer play. The Niners are turning 10 - Our 10th

Look for us in the north side lobby of the Saguaro Room. Players have suggested different styles, especially for women, and we hope we have satisfi ed some of you.

and 8-Ball. All games are played under BCA rules. The playing format

The club offers competition in 9-Ball is simple:

Players are assigned to groups or “pockets” based on their skill level as determined by their winning percentage in previous games. Players are provided a list of their opponents and phone numbers and schedule matches at their own convenience in a round-robin format. Scores are posted on a sheet on

the club’s bulletin board and are collected by the tournament director at tournament’s end for updating. Vacin and previous tournament directors have kept computerized records of all games played since the club was formed in 1995. Nine-ball tournaments are a race to seven,

meaning the fi rst player to win seven games wins

the match. Eight-ball tournaments

in Pockets 1 and 2 are a race to fi ve, and remaining tournaments are fi ve games.
