As a family man, I understand as well as all of you that no one wants to play a pool match on a major holiday and no one ever expected you to do that.
The following letter was in your envelopes the first week of September asking you to play a pre or post match, so you are not playing on Thanksgiving night. This session has three major holidays in it. If Thanksgiving was blacked out and pushed forward you would then be playing the week of Christmas and New Year's Eve.
The options today are to still play a pre or post match or take a forfeit. In order to schedule a year in advance many things are considered including, time off between sessions, Tri-Cups, LTC, NTC, special tournaments etc. All bearing in mind the weeks needed to play to build the prize funds, travel funds. division payouts etc.
I also agree that no one makes more of a commitment then our APA Players!! I thank you for that!!
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at (352) 514-7014.

Join the APA!
While some membership cards require you to be able to jump the cue ball, bank it off three rails and sink the 8-Ball blindfolded, getting an APA Membership Card is much easier!
Having fun, meeting new people and playing pool is what the APA is all about.. You don't have to be a pool shark because in the APA -- everyone can play and anyone can win. The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association. No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly $1.5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments.
How does the APA do it? It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the amount of games a player has to win in order to capture the match. It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.
