As many of you are aware the demand for the Leisure Pool decreased significantly in the last quarter of 2011, as players graduated to the Main Pool. The committee gave the viability of the Leisure Pool considerable thought and determined that we would have two tables (8 players) set aside (exclusive of the 64 player Main Pool) where players could register (at a reduced fee of $10 per person – to cover costs), and play in the leisure pool to learn and have fun. There will be NO TOP PLAYER prizes for Leisure pool in 2012 nor will Leisure players qualify for the Grand Champion Competition (there is not Leisure Champion in 2012).
Leisure players will still play using the tournament rotating sheets and schedules to learn how to play in tournament fashion and keep scores. We will award a Most Honest Player prize each tournament night (prize is a free euchre night for the following tournament) should all eight players play. In the event that we do not get 4 players minimum players can attend and go through Euchre Boot Camp with some of our volunteers.
If the Leisure Pool does not attract players over the course of February and March, we will consider discontinuing the Leisure Pool entirely.
