If my calculations are correct based on the upcoming schedule for next week all teams will have played 20 games except the following 4 teams:
Stunods Bocce Kings Unknowns Blue Ridge Friends
I propose a simple solution so that all teams play exact number of games. Add a 9:30 timeslot to next weeks schedule and have the 4 teams pick randomly out of the hat to play 1 game against their opponent. So then at the end of regular season all teams have played an equal number of games. Can we please have a vote or decision on that.
My thoughts: I'm sort of indifferent whether to add games or not. This game shortage was known from the beginning and I wish you came up with this in the beginning of the season. Not that it will make much of a difference in the outcome. But hey, more bocce? Who could argue with that.
It's a coincidence that the four teams with 19 games are in 1st, 2nd, 10th and 11th place. That being said, if we did add two games to next weeks schedule, I think the fairest thing is have the games between 1st and 2nd (Stunods and Bocce Kings) and 10th and 11th (Unknowns and Blue Ridge).
We have to check with Larry too, I'll email him to see what he says.
Thank you Rich. Actually, I did think about this when the season started and I was told it was impossible, that is how the schedule worked out bc we only had 11 teams ...Turns out it is possible and a simple solution was right in front of our noses all along. I hope the 4 teams involved all vote to play the extra game next week.

Thanks Rich for he offer. The Unknowns have 7 and 7:30 games. If the added game was at 8 that would be fine. However, 9:30 would mean waiting again 2 hours to play and getting done around 10:15. I have plans at 8:45 that would cause a conflict. So I would not be available.
