David “the Godfather” Mork, Chairman of the Board, IronOaks Breakers Pool League
The IronOaks Breakers Pool League consists of 50 members who live in HOA No. 3, IronOaks. Many of our members have left for cooler climates during our Arizona summer allowing for the remaining members to improve their skills in both 8-Ball and 9-Ball. Last year, we contracted with an internet company to provide us with access to a website that allows our members to be updated on league activities, review the scheduled playtimes and sign-up to play on our scheduled dates, which are Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.; Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.; and Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. We have space for 16 players each session and during the first few weeks of our summer this year we have nearly filled the early sessions. On Tuesday and Thursday, we play six games of 8-Ball and on Saturday we play five matches in a race to two wins in 9-Ball. We hold a blind drawing prior to each match, allowing for all our players to play against other players of skill levels which is a great training aid for all members.
We do have room for more members. Information on our league can be provided by contacting the Godfather/Chairman of the Board of the IronOaks Breakers League, David Mork by e-mail at [email protected], or by contacting the vice president and board of director member Willie Foster by e-mail at [email protected] Become a member now and you will be able to play in the upcoming Seasons Five and Six. Information sheets are also available in the activity bins in the Oakwood Clubhouse.
Season Three was played by 35 players in three racks of 8-Ball and four racks of 9-Ball. Players are assigned a rack based on their win/loss percentage during the year, allowing for players to compete against similar skill levels. New members are required to play a specific number of games prior to being assigned to a rack.
Season Three results for 9-Ball were: Rack 1: 1st Rod “the Babe” Thompson, 2nd Jerry “Slick” Vickery, 3rd Larry “Cue Stick” Stadler; Rack 2: 1st Fritz Derheim, 2nd Tom Tank, 3rd “Fast Eddie” Allen; Rack 3: 1st Jerry Bojarun, 2nd Willie “the Wizard” Foster, 3rd Michael Throckmorton.

All rack winners who placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their racks are automatically eligible to play in the 2013-2014 League Championship to be played in late October. The League Championship is a seeded tournament based on the results of the play during the year.
