David “the Godfather” Mork, Chairman of the Board, IronOaks Breakers Pool League
Recently, a league member said,: “The league’s pool games are the best entertainment value in IronOaks!” He said this because our members play 8-Ball and 9-Ball on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, respectively, in a casual atmosphere, all for the entry fee of $2 each day; and, an annual league membership is only $20! This annual fee also provides a new member’s name tag and the balance offsets the cost of the annual party which is held each October, just prior to the league championships. Members have fun talking a running commentary as to where to put the cue ball when we play Scotch Doubles (alternating turns in the games), which is all in fun. Requesting your team partner to make the cue ball stop on the table to make the next shot seems like it should be easy. Sometimes it’s not! A yearly league membership costs less than a daily green fee, and one pool cue costs a lot less than a full set of clubs! Plus, there is no 19th hole! This is a great value for all HOA No. 3 homeowners.
Many of our members have returned to playing pool after a hiatus of over 30 years. There is no need to have a personal cue. There are house cues in the Pool Room. The fees to play in the three times weekly matches, as above, are only $2 which will provide eight turns at the pool tables. All the entry fees collected are returned to the players as prize money to the winners of each of the matches. A grand total of $1 per table is paid back to the winning two person team. It is possible however, to leave the pool hall when the play is completed, with more quarters than you began and you can’t lose more than $2! This is the best entertainment value in IronOaks for almost two hours of fun! Come to the Pool Room on the days above or check out the times of play in each issue of the Splash!
We will be hosting our league championships in 8 and 9-Ball in late October. The championships are seeded tournaments and we could have as many as 18 players vying for each of the league championships, so it will be a great tournament. Come watch your neighbors during the last few days in October; and on Saturday, November 1 when the finals will be played.
We have players in the league who have a 77 percent win/loss ratio and others who are in the 25 percent win/loss ratio, so the opportunity to learn from others is high. We play all year around and in the fall and winter; we have two daily sessions on the three days above. Signups are very easy and we limit play to the first 16 players to sign up for each session.
