First of all, why don;t you come out and play like a man, Use your NAME instead of hiding behind some user-name like a coward you are! Again I'll take it from the top.
You have your years mixed up. The situation you address happen at the 2009/2010 meeting of the league and Shawn Shaw informed us after Trish's introduction that there were two forms of BCA 9-Ball Rules, one of them was non-call pocket the other was call pocket without ball in hand penalties. The members voted unanimously for the non-call pocket set of rules. It seemed that they were aware that Shawn was wrong about the other being BCAPL Rules.The vote was by raised hands not yea or nay, that would have been to noisy for other patrons of the bar.
Shawn Shaw was in Texas during the 2010/2011 opening meeting of the membership.
You left out one very important detail here, that is that I quit the team giving two weeks notice then, drank beer and left. Please don't forget the details And when did I have a conversation with Trish about the ball in hand rules months later, I had that conversation right after the vote was announced and she was reveling in her satisfaction,you are living in a self satisfying world! What is where the ball lays? The vote was not fairly presented, the membership thought, is did I, that we were voting to continue with the rules from last season which were not call pocket!
When you see an injustice you must at least attempt to correct it, that is an obligation on the part of any one with a good strong moral character. Love calling the 9-Ball or not the leagues response is in favor of its termination by 54.17% and if you were of good strong moral character you would support their desires and follow the instruction at the top of the petition or supply the necessary information for me to pole the remainder of the league assuming that there is a remainder, I don't believe there is.
You may have had 34 members in the summer league but that doesn't mean anything in the fall season.
There are plenty of other leagues out there to play in and if necessary I can always start another perhaps a VNEA league on another night or on the same night, who knows! Competition is good for business! I don't listen to anything that doesn't make good sense
And in-regards to your last paragraph TELL SOMEONE THAT REALLY CARES!
For anyone interested in knowing, Kevin is Trish's prejudice husband, and Trish is the league operator.
This is the way that the BCAPL treats it’s members for attempting to petition a vote by legally acquiring signatures according to accepted American procedures. I accomplished a 54.17% vote in-favor of withdrawal from Juan-de-Fuca Pool Leagues 9-Ball Rules and this is the outcome! What a great organization the BCAPL really is!

Effective immediately, you are hereby banned from any further participation in any BCA Pool League or BCAPL sanctioned events or tournaments.
The reason for our actions is your continued disruption and interference of an existing league (BCAPL # 263). Equally bothersome is the time and effort our office has spent to explain our policies to you. You have insisted that the Juan De Fuca Pool League change their rules, going so far as to threaten legal action. Leagues are allowed to alter rules they feel are in the best interests of the players of the local league. In the best interest of the leagues, we feel that your participation is a detriment.
The banishment is indefinite. However, you may apply to the National Office after June 1st, 2011 provided there are no further disruptive actions on your part or others on your behalf. We would evaluate your situation at that time.

- The League Operator will notify the BCAPL office in writing should any player be disqualified from league play during the year.
- The BCAPL reserves the right to disqualify any player not in good standing from participating in BCAPL sanctioned tournaments.
The two above statements mean that the league operator must initiate any player de-sanctioning to the BCAPL. Then the BCAPL will declare that the players are ineligible for play in any sanctioned BCAPL play.
That’s way too much power for some league operators to have, they feel compelled to use it and one has used it on at least one occasion, possibly even more, since I believe that she used it in her previous venue two years ago before she lost that venue. The time is rapidly approaching for her to lose this one also! All in favor say EYE!
I believe this to be true because it all happened immediately after the league operator received her copy of the petition and before the BCAPL received theirs, within one working day and my letter of de-sanctioning was on the way.
