ANSWERS TO
QUESTIONS
#1. TAP NATIONAL TOURNAMENT
YOU WIN PAID - AIR FLIGHT/HOTEL/ENTRY FEE IF YOU WIN THE NEPATAP NATIONAL QUALIFIER TOURNAMENT

#2. SINGLES / SCOTCH DOUBLES / 9 BALL QUESTIONS
NEPATAP HAS HAD SMALL BUY-IN TOURNAMENTS IN THE PAST BUT WE NEED A LARGER MEMBERSHIP
BUDDY LOVES SCOTCH DOUBLES AND WOULD LIKE TO RUN TOURNAMENTS ON A REGULAR BASIS
TAP HAS A GREAT FORMAT FOR 9-BALL LEAGUES BUT BUDDY WOULD RATHER RUN SMALL 9-BALL TOURNAMENTS USING THE TAP FORMAT FOR A WHILE SO PLAYERS CAN LEARN THE GAME AND IF THERE IS A LOT OF INTEREST THEN START A DIVISION

TAP 9 BALL IS AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET TO TRUE 9-BALL
BASICALLY IT IS TEXAS EXPRESS BUT YOU CALL THE 9 BALL
JUST LIKE THE PROS PLAY ON ESPN
YOU HAVE RACES LIKE 8 BALL
SO EACH GAME YOU HAVE A WINNER
WIN ENOUGH GAMES TO SATISFY YOUR HANDICAP LEVEL YOU WIN THE MATCH
IT IS BETTER THAN OTHER HANDICAP LEAGUES
THEY JUST PLAY STRAIGHT POOL WITH 9 BALLS ON THE TABLE
PUTTING IN THE 9 BALL MEANS NOTHING BUT 1 EXTRA POINT
NOBODY WINS A GAME THEY JUST TRY TO PUT IN MORE TOTAL BALLS THAN THEIR OPPONENT

REGULAR BUY-IN TOURNAMENTS WOULD START WHEN WE GET AROUND 30 TOTAL TEAMS

NEPATAP CAN RUN SINGLE LEAGUES WITH PLAYER PRIZE OF TRIPS TO THE NATIONALS OR THE RALLY IN THE VALLEY SINGLE EVENTS
WE HAVE ALREADY EXPERIMENTED WITH THIS IDEA AND SCHEDULING AND FINANCING WILL BE EASY
ALSO CAN BE 8 OR 9 BALL
ANY INTEREST IN THIS CONTACT BUDDY

#3. COST OF DUES
TAP CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP IS $20 PER YEAR
IT RUNS 1 YEAR FROM THE TIME YOU JOIN  (EX. SEPT TO SEPT)
WEEKLY DUES PER TEAM $30    ($6 PER PLAYER)
NO COST ON AFTER SESSION TOURNAMENTS
ALL TEAMS CAN PLAY IN THE NEPA NATIONAL TOURNAMENT QUALIFIER BUT THERE IS A SMALL ENTRY FEE  $80 PER TEAM
THIS MONEY IS USED FOR TOURNAMENT COST AND THE BETTERMENT OF THE LEAGUE/ ADVERTISEMENT / ECT. AND SOMETIMES A LITTLE PLAY MONEY FOR THE WINNER
THEY SHOULD NOT PLAY IF THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO GO TO THE NATIONAL TOURNAMENT (THE TRIP CAN NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED)
YOU WIN AIR FLIGHT/HOTEL/ENTRY FEE AND SOME GAMBLING MONEY IF AVAILABLE
THE 2009 NEPATAP NATIONAL TOURNAMENT QUALIFIER TOURNAMENT ONLY HAD 8 TEAMS SIGN-UP AND PLAY
THE 2010 HAS ONLY 10 TEAMS SIGNED-UP
THE REST COULD NOT ATTEND THE NATIONAL TOURNAMENT
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY AGAINST TEAMS THAT KNOW THEY CAN NOT GO TO THE NATIONAL TOURNAMENT AND ARE JUST PLAYING BECAUSE THEY QUALIFIED

#4 HANDICAP SYSTEM
TAP RECENTLY INVESTED ALMOST $100,000 INTO A NEW COMPUTER PROGRAM
THIS PROGRAM IS THE BEST IN THE INDUSTRY
IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT MEMBERS OF THE PGA PRO GOLF ARE LOOKING AT IT TO SEE HOW OUR PROGRAM MAY BE CONVERTED FOR THEIR MEMBERS
CHECK OUT THE PAGE TITLED A-PLAYERS-STATS
THE NEW PARTS OF THIS PROGAM BUDDY LIKES ARE
A. HANDICAPS ARE BASED ON 23 MATCHES (THE BEST AND WORST MATCH ARE DROPPED) THAT COULD TOTAL OVER 100 GAMES
B. ALL DATA FROM AFTER SESSION MATCHES ARE STORED ON A SEPERATE FILE (THE COMPUTER COMPARES YOUR SESSION PLAY TO MONEY TOURNAMENT PLAY) IF THEY ARE NOT COMPATABLE THE PLAYER GETS DISCIPLINARY ACTION
C. THE PLAYER MODULES ARE INCREDIBLE
THEY COMPARE YOUR GAME VERSUS EACH DIFFERENT HANDICAP LEVELS
D. WE HAD CHEATING PROBLEMS IN THE PAST AND THIS NEW PROGRAM KEEPS THIS IN CHECK
THE PLAYERS THAT SAY THINGS LIKE THEY OR OTHER PLAYERS ARE SANDBAGGING ARE BLOWING SMOKE
THE LAST FEW SESSIONS HAVE ENDED WITH TIES BETWEEN THE TOP TEAMS AND CHANCES FOR MANY TEAMS TO WIN ON THE FINAL NIGHT
WE PLAY 80 MATCHES A SESSION AND MOST SESSIONS END WITH THE WINNING TEAM HAVING 46 TO 49 WINS
THAT MEANS IF YOU CAN WIN JUST A LITTLE OVER HALF YOUR MATCHES YOU COULD WIN THE SESSION
THIS ALSO SHOWS THAT THE HANDICAP SYSTEM BALLANCES THE DIVISIONS
BUDDY NOTICED THAT THERE ARE BARS WITH ALOT OF APA TROPHIES BUT MOST HAVE NONE OR ONE
IT LOOKS LIKE THE SAME TEAMS WIN ALL THE TIME
THAT ALONE SHOULD QUESTION THEIR SYSTEM

RECENT SESSION FINAL SCORES
IF A PLAYER ON YOUR TEAM LOST ON PURPOSE TO LOWER HIS CAP HE WOULD BE TAKING YOUR TEAM OUT OF THE RUNNING TO FINISH AT A LEVEL TO WIN MONEY
IF HE WAS ON MY TEAM HE WOULD BE GONE!
THE NEW PROGRAM USES 23 MATCHES AND LOSING A COUPLE MATCHES ON PURPOSE WOULD NOT ACCOMPLISH A DROP IN CAP LEVEL ALSO IF YOU PLAYED GREAT AT A MONEY TOURNAMENT THOSE THROWN MATCHES WILL GET YOU DISQUALIFIED
