Nick Bagri, a Kennedy “A” team player, passed away on Monday, 26 December. Funeral services will be held 2:00 pm on January 2, 2017 at Riverside Funeral Home, 7410 Hopcott Rd, Delta BC.

“A” League Open Singles Post-Season Tournament will have a new format for 2017.
        The new format will be a single knock-out event with each match being a best of five. The plan is to have a maximum of 16 entries with the top 8 entries seeded according to the total points that those players scored in their high breaks during the regular season play. For these matches, participants will have to commit to playing on several days during a single week.

      The league is holding a cumulative points contest for high breaks in order to form a basis for seeding the best players for the new post-season singles tournament this coming spring.
        We are planning on informing the players several times during the league season using this updated “A” and “B” high break chart. This new “open” “A” league tournament will allow entries from both “A” and “B” leagues. However each “A” League team will be guaranteed two entries and remaining spots will be filled from either the “B” league or by lottery from extra “A” league players.
        In accordance with our new policy, participants will be allowed to participate in only two post-season tournaments. Further guidelines will be provided when we start registrations for the post-season events.

Table Care and Maintenance
1. Cover your tables when not in use, dust settling into the cloth will cause it to break down over time.
2. The cloth can be occasionally vacuumed to get the accumulation of dust out and ironed to flatten the nap.
3. Be sure to keep drinks away for the tables, water and other liquids will stain the cloth and once stained there is no way to get the stain out.
4. Dead cushions, the rubber can harden over time (especially if the table is not used for long periods of time) and should be replaced every few years. Snooker table rubber is known as "L" rubber because of its shape.
5. Cloth should be replaced every few years depending on the amount of use the table gets.
