Yeah, points for matching sheets seems like a bad idea. We get a point for "score sheet filled out correctly", but we've never failed to get those points, so they're not very strict.

Around here,...

The funny thing is that those colors were picked before HD, in the days of NTSC. For example, NTSC can't actually render a real maroon, so they picked a different color for the 7.

Now, however,...

I'm pretty sure that APA has no option to leave a moved ball (like the option in BCA) -- it has to go back to where the players mutually agree.

And that anyone on the other team can call a foul...

Did anyone else notice how little backstroke Kelly Fisher was using? Her warmup strokes were small, in the range of some small number of inches, but the stroke itself was very jabby. Seemed to work...

If I am shooting at a deer, and I hit you instead, I would definitely call that an accident.

For everyone who is complaining about the call being nitty -- where do you draw the line (and why is it you who gets to draw the line)?

It's pretty easy to get out-safed, after you've knocked most of your balls in.

Per-Person

Is it common to pay per-person per-hour, rather than per-table per-hour?

In my very limited experience, most places around here (Portland, OR), that do rent by the hour, rent per-table...

What is sandbagging?

It seems there seems to be some confusion as to what sandbagging is.

As in the just-posted story, where the 6 was "beaten easily by a 3". Seems to me that, if the 3 goes around "easily beating"...

Rules violation vs. House Rules

Not Sandbagging

Note that you don't sandbag in the APA by running racks! It is mostly inning-based, and, to sandbag, you would need to run up your innings.

It is possible that she might have sandbagged when...
