GAME 1
10...................................... ...................................37
This match was a no contest from the start. ICCA team was four members short. Maximum
bullseyes (9 each) were given to tables 3 and 4 of One Family. These bullseyes do not count
for individual stats.... just for team bullseyes overall. Needless to say, the MAA and its
members are very disappointed.
.
.
We are now looking for players to fill the four vacant spots. If you have friends who
are interested, please call Khemraj (204) 981-0661 ASAP.

Our favourite liming spot at half time - Ken's Hideout (the bar)
.
GAME 2
37..........................................................21
Saints got off to a great start and never looked back. At the half Jump & Wave trailed Saints
by only 5 bullseyes. However in the second half Jump & Wave just couldn't narrow the gap and
ended up losing by 16 bullseyes. All four tables for Saints were victorious.
What an outstanding performance, guys!
.
..
.
Cards in full swing. Members are so glad for the all fours season. No more cabin fever.
Helps to make the winter go faster.
.
GAME 3
28........................................................27
This was the thriller of the day. WISA team was down by 6 games at the half. The pair of Russell
Chan & Wayne Dinzey defeated their opponents by 5 games to help WISA come from behind
and nip Chutney Soca at the end. During the last 30 minutes the lead kept changing
and the excitement was intense. It was a tough game to lose for Chutney Soca. Ouch!
.
.
'And they're off!' as the late Raffie Knowles (T&T announcer)
used to say.
.
Another great year is in store for us. We expect the race to the finish line to be a tight one
this year. So far all the teams are returning to do battle for another year.
We are predicting the order of finish for 2018 to be as follows:-
.
1. One Family - Team intact from last year. Expect them to win again. Solid team. No weaknesses.
The fact that this team was able to resign Ashok just about ensure another championship. Did
someone say 'three-peat'? Current odds: 2 - 1
.
2. WISA - Perennial powerhouse. With the return of Indraj and Larry they have the right players
to go all the way. Their line up looks unbeatable. It could be a neck to neck, nose to nose race down
the homestretch to the finish line. Look for them to upset One Family. Current odds: 3 - 1
.
3. Saints - They are always competitive. The team has gotten much younger in age. This could work
against them but don't rule them out. They went out of province to recruit top gun Darren Maharaj
to make their team much stronger. Welcome back, Darren. Current odds: 7 - 2
.
4. Chutney Soca - They were one win away from winning a championship last year and were the
only team to beat the champs One Family. Expect new faces to be on the team. Possibly the dark
horse in the race. Current odds: 4 - 1
.
5. Jump & Wave - They need consistency if they are to win the championship. They will beat the
strong teams and lose to the worse. This could be their year if they can get it all together from the
start. Current odds: 9 - 2
.
6. ICCA - The sleeper in the race. With a few breaks here and there, they can upset any team in
the league. So don't count them out. Current odds: 5 - 1
.
All top three teams won their opening matches. The standings may change
next Sunday as One Family plays WISA for the top spot.

  The 2018 Gold Medal Winners!! 
.
...
.
Most Bullseyes ............................ Most Hang Jacks
.
The MAA 2018 season got off to a great start. We had 32 players ...the same number as last year.
Ashok Nagina & Waheeda Mohammed tied with Kelvin Rampersad & Sunil Ramlochan in the Most
Bullseyes category. The team of Ashok & Waheeda won in a playoff game while the team of Shammi Mohammed & Sadiiqa Mohammed emerged as the Most Hang Jacks winners.
.
All four winners are from the team 'One Family'. And yes Ashok...it was
a clean sweep. Congrats!!!
.

KEEPING YOU IN TOUCH AT ALL TIMES
.
A reminder to our members of past rules and policies from last year. Our zero intolerance policy
remains in effect regarding (a) conduct & behaviour, (b) financial integrity, (c) negative remarks
(racist & otherwise) and (d) abusive language.
.
At our next meeting a disciplinary committee will be struck to handle all matters as they arise.
Every infraction will be dealt with individually and any decision handed down by the disciplinary
committee is final (barring no appeal).
.
Last year we saw a big improvement in the membership behaviour and the year was considered
to be almost perfect. This year, let's work towards making it incident free.
.
..
The MAA is making a plea to all those who have carrying trophies in their possession to return
them to the association. We ask that you return them on the first day of the all fours season.
We thank you for your full co-operation in this matter.
.
.
All teams are required to pay their registration fees on the first Sunday of the regular season
(18th February). Names of players and sub players will be handed over to the MAA executive. 
There will be a reduction in fees this year. Last year's fees and registration totalled $420.00 per
team or $52.50 per player. The entire amount for this year is $340.00 or $42.50 per player..
.
The MVP criteria will remain the same as last year's i.e. best four (4) of five (5) games.
.
.
No new games will be started at or after 10 minutes to 6:00 p.m. All unfinished games end at
precisely 6:00 p.m. Players must stop all card activities.
.
If a match is tied, play will resume immediately from where you left off
and the next bullseye will decide the winner.
.
In fairness to everyone in overtime, players cannot take more than a minute to shuffle and cut
the deck of cards... nor is any player allowed to leave the table.
As well, other players looking on should not interfere in any way with the game.
A marshal will be present to ensure that these rules are followed.
.
.
.
Each table is responsible for monitoring their scores, regardless if there is a regular or new scorer.
To avoid possible disputes, it is important that players/tables go up to the scoreboard and verify
their scores from time to time to see if there are any discrepancies.
.
After the games are over there will be no changes made to the score sheets. The onus is on the
players/tables to monitor and make sure their scores are correct at all times.
.
Captains are also responsible for ensuring that all data is transposed legibly and accurately
from the master scoreboard to the summary score sheet.
..
.
.
DON'T: Smokers are reminded to dispose of their cigarette butts in the proper manner. Please do
not drop them in the area around the entrance side door.
.
DO: All team captain & players are responsible for setting up their tables and chairs and placing
them back at the end of the day.
.
DON'T: Please refrain from bringing your 'smokes' and personal booze for consumption in the
parking lot. The MAA was reported and monitored last year and most likely will be closely watched
again this year. This issue is a very serious one. We are making it abundantly clear that we will not
take responsibility for anyone who is caught in the act.
.
DO: All games start at 1:00 p.m. sharp. Plan on reaching the CCOM building at or before 12:45 p.m.
every Sunday.
.
Curry Coconut Ice Cream anyone?
.
.
Guess what? There is Pepper Ice Cream too. What's next? Who knows?
.
Special thanks to my executive committee, the webmaster and special events groups and
to all those who graciously contributed in making 2017 a truly remarkable, inspirational,
exciting and exceptional year.
