On November 9th 2019 Quail Creek will have it’s annual garage sale. Club treasurer John Anderson has graciously volunteered to sell household items during the sale at his house. All proceeds of his garage sale will benefit the Quail Creek Billiards Club. The money will be useful for paying off our loan for the Diamond tables as well as purchasing new items like lights and a ball washer.
Please stop buy his house during the sale (1995 E Winter Hawk Place) and buy something! Better yet, donate some of your household items to the club’s sale. He intends to donate any unsold items to the White Elephant. Ask John for details. firstname.lastname@example.org

Since our billiards room is in the Madera Clubhouse the Quail Creek code of conduct is always in effect. Article 2 – Code of Conduct can be found in the Quail Creek Property Owners Rules
The following additional rules of conduct were approved by the QCBC board of directors for our members to discourage behaviors that would detract from our enjoyment of playing pool. Please review these and provide feedback to the board if you like.

You may have noticed that our members have started to use a piece of paper under the cue ball during a break shot. This is a trick we learned from the Green Valley club who have saved a lot of wear on their cloth by using break sheets. We are accumulating marks on the cloth of our tables. The downward force on the cue ball compresses the cloth at the point of impact causing a dent. The ball doesn’t spin at first so it skids along the cloth creating a streak. The cloth is pretty sturdy but the ball actually removes some of the dye.
Let’s all get in the habit of using the break sheets provided in the billiards room so we can extend the life and beauty of our tables.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Adrian Lelea and Tom Bradley won the most alternate shot 10-ball matches on April 15, 2019. And three teams finishing second: Jimmy Di Martino & Kay Mertes, Jan Elliot & Chuck Astleford and Dwight Hildebrand & Nancy Gibbs.
