Open 9 Ball Tournament

2004 Western BCA Champions (l to r) Catherine Tran, Dana Aldridge, Bob Yunker, Michael Stephens, Natasha Hook, Jean Bartholomew, Stan Tourangeau, Jaclyn Fitchner by: Don “Cheese” Akerlow

The story of the tournament has to be Clyde Bowles. I’ve gotten to know Clyde over the years from deliveries, playing in tournaments and showing up at tournaments. Clyde is the perfect example of a gentleman with his down home, laid back, easy going demeanor. Don’t let that fool you when it comes to shooting pool. He’s not tall, dashing or have the flash of many of the players. He doesn’t draw the ball three cushions around the table to get position, he just makes ball with consistency. Make no mistake he can make shots that you and I may not. I think finishing second in Masters after

WSPL State Championship

being on the point says it all. I talked to Clyde after he had won the point and he was waiting for Glenn Atwell and Stan Tourangeau to battle it out, Clyde said that he had originally submitted to be in Seniors and he went to Masters. It was good to see a lot of my old friends that I have made over the years as well as new one that I have reacquainted myself with. It is always gratifying to meet new players and hear their opinions about “The Break”. (Western BCA continued on page 4)

In an exclusive interview with Mark Griffin of Diamond Tables, he confirmed the rumor that he had made an agreement with the Billiard Congress of America to purchase the BCA League System. The deal is not official until the board approves it next week. Mark said that the leagues will remain the same. There will be no changes for the players. It will not become a franchise league and the fees will remain the same. The BCA Nationals in Las Vegas will also remain the same. They will still be run by Gary Benson for the next two years, at least. Mark does have a lot of ideas on how to enhance the league and create more events for the players. He’s thinking of reviving the National 9-Ball Tournament that used to be held in Red Wing, Minnesota and maybe even bring back the All American Tour. Mark is player oriented and wants to have an advisory board comprised of industry leaders and league officials to help staff the new league. He is moving his offices to Las Vegas, which seems like a more appropriate place for them. Mark would like to work together so that the players get a better deal. He wants to work in conjunction with the other leagues and tours so that there are not conflicts in scheduling. He is very enthusiastic about what can and should happen to make the league stronger and promote pool. He has big plans in the works that he hopes to make a reality. The new website should be up and running by April 1st and will be changing daily so check it out at You can keep apprised of the changes going on by checking online. Although Mark didn’t want the BCA to sell the leagues, when it became apparent that the leagues were going to be offered for sale, he stepped up to take charge. OTB We will have more information in next month’s issue.

I think one of the most important parts of the tournament, and you may even call them the “heart and soul”, are the referees. They may not always make the call that you would like but they are trained and conduct themselves in a professional manner. Next time you see someone refing thank them for their time and dedication to a mostly thankless endeavor. See you again in November!

This letter is not about how to rank players, it is inspired by the few players who are placed (or place themselves) in a lower level tournament bracket than they should be. Let’s call it what it is—”sand bagging”. It has happened repeatedly with individuals and even some teams. What should be done? To be fair, I must take note that most of the League Operators involved in our Western BCA operations try to rate their players fairly and honestly. This letter is not meant for them. It is very difficult to monitor and rate pool players. Personally, I am not convinced there is decent system out there to help do it. There are too many variables such as the type of equipment played on, the caliber of the competition played against, etc. Once again at this year’s BCA 8- ball event, there were several players playing in lower divisions where they did not belong. This was especially true in the Novice Division. One L e a g u e Women’s Novice Singles representative (l to r) Natasha Hook (1st), Linda Terletter (2nd) even signed off for a player to play in the Novice Bracket. This was done under the pretense that the player had only a couple of years of experience. The problem is that the couple of years consisted of playing continually with lots of practice time. Some players advance more quickly than others, some take lessons, some practice day and night. So only considering when a player started playing is a very poor excuse to sign off on a novice ranking. To top it off, this “novice” placed high in the open scotch event. How disappointing for the true novice players to see someone like this walk up to their table in the singles. Finally, there was the glaring inequity of the use of a “jump cue”. The word “Novice” means beginner! There are some pro’s who don’t pull out jump cues. I wonder how many of this player’s opponents used one! There are no other words except unfair to describe this behavior. It is grossly unjust to all of the beginners who entered the tournament in the Novice division believing they would have a chance against players of the same skill level. Men’s A Singles Here is another example that Dana Aldridge (1st) occurred during the last BCA 8-ball regional tournament. I was told that a league operator approached an individual (who has played pool for many years and is ranked high in the APA) to join the league on the pretense that the player could sign up as a Novice! It seems some are under the impression that just because someone is new to BCA play, they can start as a Novice—even if they are NOT a beginning player. This is just not true. A true novice is a player with beginning skill levels and not much tournament experience. The novice ranking is meant to give players the opportunity to play against others of the same ability gaining both experience and confidence. It would be shame if the Novice division had to be dropped from this venue because of such blatant abuse of the system. Please try to be honest and fair when rating a player. It is NOT a feather in your cap or your league 1st Place Master Scotch Doubles to have the top winners in (l to r) Stan Tourangeau, Wendy Sedlacek

at the beach any particular division playing for you if it is done so dishonestly. In actuality, you are performing a disservice to the player also. The pool community is not large and in general, players already know who should be ranked novice and who should not. By allowing these players to sand-bag, they end up losing the respect of their peers. They may not realize this will happen and in the end is it worth the money to them? Is it worth the loss of respect to you? All that ends up happening is the player, the division rep, the league operator, and the association all look bad. Women’s Master Pool is about integrity (l to r) Cindy Doty (2nd), Jaclyn Fitchner (1st)

and character. Think of the players you respect the most; do they do the right thing during a match? Isn’t it their character that you admire the most about them? Think about the players you don’t respect, the ones who won’t call fouls on themselves and are just in it for the money. HOW DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO THINK OF YOU?

Men’s Master Singles (l to r) Stan Tourangeau (1st), Clyde Bowles (2nd)


I have just returned from an exciting week of top-notch pool playing by around a thousand WBPPA members. It was a great week, with the new divisions to this tournament being declared a huge success. The large Open division was split into an Open A and Open B and a Men’s Seniors and Women’s Seniors were new. Everyone seemed Men’s Senior Singles (l to r) Richard Konkler (2nd), Michael Stephens (1st) to like this change. There were some great surprises too. Clyde Bowles, a well known player of the Seattle area won the point in the Men’s Master Division, by beating Glenn Atwell. Quite a feat. Clyde told me that

was his early birthday present. (71 years young). Since Glenn has been a winner of this event several times, it changed the scenario of the competition in this category, considerably. Glenn then met Stan Tourangeau who put him out at the 3rd place position. Stan and Glenn have met many times in competition and the results are always anyone’s guess and come down to a super shot, or lucky roll,

to determine who wins. Stan went on to play Clyde for all the marbles. Clyde told me he got very tired and Stan steamrolled through the two sets needed to win the championship. Make no mistake, Stan played almost flawlessly and deserved to win. Congratulations to both Stan and Clyde. The Women’s Master Div. featured Jackie Fitchner (WBPPA continued on page 19)

I thought that our last tournament had several of the world class players in it, but this one showed that it really never ends. Players from California, Canada and all parts of Washington came together to get a piece of the $3655 paid out in prize money for this two day event. John Horsfall, who has won tournaments here in the past, showed that he is a player to be reckoned with when you are his opponent. His Saturday matches were Rodger A (7-2) and Anthony W (7-4). Sunday’s matches were Marlon (8-3), a difficult loss to Rich Geiler (6-8), a great match against Dan Louie (7-4), Randy C (7-5), and then revenge against Rich Geiler (8-3). Bryce was in the area, from California, and decided to join our little group for a weekend of ups and downs. He is a John Horsfall fabulous player to watch. Young and upcoming and definitely one to watch in the future. His matches on Saturday were Ben Dutton (7-6), Jeff Jeminize (7-2), and Phil Wilson (7-5). Sunday found him still having to win some difficult matches to try to take 1st place in this tournament. Mike Vidas (8-7), Randy C (8-5) and winning the point match against Rich Geiler (8-7). Watching John and Bryce in the final match was like seeing the teacher and student going against each other for the first time. Bryce has all the potential of being one of the best, but he was up against one who has been there for many years and has that long time experience already in place. It will be fun to see them going heads up in the years to come. For the spectators, it really was one to see. When either player made a great shot, it was good to see that the spectators let each of them know it. John being just that one step ahead of the game came out on top (9-5). Congratulations John. Once again, and as always, the players need to take time out to thank Darryl, owner of Shotze’s for a great place for a tournament, and also for the extraordinary staff that is always on hand to make the players weekend as easy as possible. Without those two elements, tournaments of this caliber in this area wouldn’t be. Final results are as follows: $1000/$536 John Horsfall 1st 2 nd $655/$402 Bryce A rd 3 $400/$268 Rich Geiler $300/$134 Randy C 4 th 5-6 $225 Dan Louie, Stan T 7-8 $175 Simon Pickering, Brady G 9-12 $125 J.

1st Annual

LeRoy Long Memorial 8-Ball Tournament with the first diamond to the left of pocket B. One object ball is to the left of the center ball and one ball is to the right of the center ball with one inch spacing between all balls. The object ball on the left is the E ball. The cue ball is in hand, anywhere or as the diagram suggests. The object of this shot is to shoot the cue ball into E ball with a jump stroke. The E ball will jump into the cushion and rebound back over the other balls and be pocketed in E pocket. When executing this shot the E ball can’t contact any other ball and the cue ball can’t jump off the table. A scratch is allowed. Here are a few helpful hints on executing this great shot. I place my cue ball about three and a half balls away from the E ball. Next I line up the cue ball and the E ball the same as the diagram shows. Your cue should be elevated about 20 to 25 degrees. Seeing this is a jump shot don’t stroke but snap the execution of the shot with a moderate speed. Best of luck. If a similar shot like this one came up in a game of eight ball and E ball was the eight, I bet your opponents jaw would drop to the floor if you pulled this shot off. Next months artistic shot will be from the Masse Discipline and has a (DOD) of 8!

Half-Ball Secrets By: Bob Jewett of the SFBA

San Francisco Billiard Academy In my last column, I went into a little detail on aiming half-ball shots. Just aim the middle of the cue stick and cue ball directly to the edge of the object ball, and you get close to a 30-degree cut. This month I’m going to let you in on a first secret about the half-ball shot that is useful in position play — what happens when you hit the shot with good draw. If you’ve studied the Bob Jewett game at all, you know that the cue ball leaves the object ball at a right angle to the path of the object ball — along the tangent or kiss line. Of course, if the cue ball has follow or draw when it hits the object ball, the path will be bent away from that perpendicular path, forward for follow and backward for draw. The useful secret of the half-ball with draw shot is that the cue ball will end up traveling perpendicular to its own original path. This is illustrated in Diagram 1. The shot can be very useful, but it requires some care if you want it to work right. First, you have to have what might be called “perfect draw” on the cue ball. For most players, this is as far below center as they can hit without miscuing. Also, the cue ball must be relatively close to the object ball, or too much draw will be lost on the cloth on the way to the object ball. You need to be careful to get an accurate hit on

Email Questions to:

the object ball. The two lightly-shaded “ghost balls” in the diagram will aid in your set up. If all three balls are frozen, with the two helpers parallel to the long rail, and the lower helper and the object ball pointing to the pocket, you are set up for a half-ball shot. Remove the helpers, and point your stick at the edge of the object ball. Note that there is a curved section of the path of the cue ball just as it leaves the object ball, before the curve finishes. After the draw has been spent, the cue ball will continue in a straight path. If you shoot softly, the curve will not be as wide. If you shoot harder, the curve will be larger, and in the shot shown, it might touch the side cushion before it straightens out to run parallel to the cushion. Unfortunately, the sharpness of the curve also depends on how clean the cloth and ball are. In the position shown, you should be able to pocket the nine ball within five tries. Be careful about your setup, and especially be careful about how much draw you are using and how hard you hit the cue ball. The concept of this shot is not just useful for a precise half-ball hit. If you find yourself in a similar situation, but with a slightly fuller hit required to pocket the ball, you know that it should be possible to pull the cue ball back from the right angle. Try moving the cue ball just half a ball down, so the shot is a little fuller, and see if you can pull the cue ball back to the middle of the end cushion with a thicker hit. You can adjust the fuller hit back to the rightangle line by taking a little draw off the cue ball. How much? That’s why practice is necessary

with this or any system — you must develop your feel for the shot. If the cue ball is further back, (Half-Ball Secrets continued on page 23)

In Memory Of Joe Jacques

Pool • Pull Tabs • Shuffleboard Karaoke Wednesday & Friday at 9PM

By Curt Synness

The late Joe Jacques (1929-2004) was a world-class pool player. He mastered all the games on the big table, ran over 90 consecutive balls at 14.1 straight pool and knew more than a hundred trick and skill shots. Joe possessed one of the most powerful strokes that I’ve ever seen, and could make the cue ball things that astonished the nation’s greatest pool players. The epitome of a misspent youth, Joe started racking balls in the local pool hall in his hometown in Maine at the age of six. He dropped out of school in the eighth grade and started playing pool 14-15 hours a day. Within two years, he was a player for the house, and by the time he was 16 he was making a living as a road player up and down the East Coast, until he experienced a fate similar to that of Fast Eddie Felson in “The Hustler.” After beating a big logger out of his paycheck in Portland, Maine, several locals took Joe out in the alley attempted to cut his throat. The teenager managed to Joe Jacques get away and made it to the bus station, narrowly escaping with his life. He then signed up for the Air Force at the age of 17 and did not pick up a cue stick again for 10 years. His military service took him to Great Falls, where Joe met his future wife, Joanne. Pool tournaments and leagues were extremely rare in Montana in the 1960s, but whenever he did participate, he usually won. And although it has not been documented, Joe’s son, Lenny Jacques, said his dad once won $50,000 and a bar in a game. But what is a known fact is that when he lost one of his best friends over a bet, he quit gambling forever. “The only thing you prove when you play for money,” he used to say, “is that you like to gamble.” After retiring from the service, Joe came to Helena, where he enjoyed shooting pool for fun, giving demonstrations and lessons, and just showing off. When I first saw him at an exhibition in 1973, the establishment’s owner introduced him to the crowd with, “Joe doesn’t just make the cue ball talk. He makes it dance.” He was an encouraging instructor to anyone interested in learning the game, and an entertaining showman with dozens of dazzling skill and trick shots. Joe was a lot of fun to play with – he always kept you laughing. I can still hear him barking out those one-liners in that thick, staccato New England accent of his; “You’re so ugly, if you sat on a tombstone you’d hatch a ghost!” or “Those are the Lee sisters…Ug-Lee and Home-Lee.” I’ll always remember watching Helena’s two masters, Joe Jacques and Eddy Williams, playing three-cushion billiards at the old Red Carpet pool hall, and I’ll never forget that dynamite stroke of his. Joe performed exhibitions with seven world champions: Willie Mosconi, Jimmy Caras, “Machine Gun” Lou Butera, “Cowboy” Jimmy Moore, Luther “Wimpy” Lassiter, Joe Balsis and Jim Rempe. Whenever his buddy Rempe came to town, Jacques would take him out fly-fishing. Once at a Corner Pocket exhibition, Jacques showed Rempe a shot he’d never seen before, which caused the multiple world champ to exclaim, “That was not a trick shot, folks. That was pure skill and talent.” Curt Synness is a longtime pool player and part time sports writer for the Helena Independent Record. OTB

Just before midnight on Sunday, February 22nd, Maria Federici was driving home from work when an unsecured piece of furniture (particle board) bell from the back of an open trailer in front of her car and flew through her windshield, hitting her in the face. The other driver didn’t stop. Because of her extensive injuries, the doctors said she would not survive. Her mother decided to donate her organs and everyone said their goodbyes. But this indomitable young lady has overcome all odds and is even getting out of bed and taking assisted walks. Maria has many more reconstructive surgeries ahead. To read the extent of her injuries and the miracles occurring around her, go to Maria has no medical insurance and the State Patrol and her family are hoping that someone will step forward and take responsibility for what has happened and help with medical expenses. Maria is Rich Geiler’s niece and the pool world is pitching in to help with Maria’s expenses. On May 1-2, we are throwing a pool extravaganza to benefit Maria at Kennedy High School, located in Burien, WA at 140 S 140th, just off of 1st Avenue S.

On Sunday, doors open at 1, and the show goes from 2-8 pm. There will be a 4-man tournament of Archer, Massey, Hall and Louie with more trick shots by Geiler and Massey. Surprise guest on Sunday! We will be raffling off some great donations, as well as giving out lots of door prizes to the crowd. This is an event you won’t want to miss, plus you are helping Maria and her family, so make sure to mark your calendars! Please give generously!

From The Work Bench by: Pat Sheehan See Ad Page 13 Right now you are getting ready for Easter and I just finished St. Patrick’s Day, also my birthday. With a name like Patrick Sheehan you can guess that there should have been a lot of celebrating, but it has been the busiest two weeks of my life. Mike McMennamin has been adding pool tables to his locations and with one week notice, we had two 46 x 92 Regulation tables to get ready for the St Patrick’s Day celebration at the Oregon Hotel Pat Sheehan in McMinnville. Since I start from scratch on each order, it took a bit of hustle to complete them and cut the parts for the Greenway Plaza on Shols Ferry Road and the McMennamin’s at SW Murray and Allen. They will go out March 25th. Mike has bar boxes in the last two locations which he will be replacing with real pool tables. The tables Mike likes are the Brunswick Wilmington and with a few changes, The Sheehan Regent becomes a Wilmington. We did the tables in quarter sawn oak and with Orange shellac and dark past filler in the grain. They look like they were made in 1905. We installed them on March 15th in the Paragon Room at the Oregon Hotel in McMinnville and it is one of the most attractive billiard rooms Mike has in his collection. We used the Granito cloth in English Green and as I walked into the Paragon Room the following Sunday to check on the settling of the tables, I could see why Mike likes that color so well. Now we have to make some dining table tops for there are occasions when 30 to 40 people will meet for breakfast in that room. It is now 5:00 am Monday morning and I am a zombie. Last month we covered the tables at the Buffalo Gap and at 4:00 am today, we moved the tables for new carpet and I am waiting for carpet people to finish putting the carpet down. As I mentioned my recent birthday was number 66 and

these irregular hours are tough on an old fart, but you do things for special customers. The Buffalo Gap is one of those special places. Jack Stutzman, always calls on us and has for the past um-teen years. He has a new manager, Jared Mannis, a pool player for many years and together they have made so many outstanding improvements. So if you haven’t been to the Buffalo Gap for a while plan on being there. The food is great; the help outstanding and good times are always had there. The pool tables are always clean, with the addition of Quick-Clean along with regular brushing and vacuuming. The cloth is spotless now with the new carpet the room is very neat and tidy. Upstairs in the attic they have always had live music six nights a week with no cover. They have added a 50” flat screen TV and 4 monitored TV’s with Dolby Digital Surround Sound. Years ago the attic was a brothel. I told you there are a lot of changes. If you haven’t seen “The Passion of the Christ” I recommend it. It’s the first movie I’ve seen in a theater since “The Color of Money”. My best friend owns the Moreland Theater and invited me on the premier night. With the sound system and Gibson’s use of darkness to light, I was mesmerized. It took me ten minutes to stand up after the end. Talk about weak in the knees. The movie will get you ready for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The Billings BCA Pool League has completed its 2003-2004 regular season crowning 2 league champions. The Sports Page team narrowly edged the Squire Lounge team by winning the tiebreaker. Both teams had identical records during the season but the Sports Page team had a narrow edge in total balls. The two teams played even all year in the closely contested season. The team from Kings Korner won the other league totally dominating the season from start to finish. Second place went to Sids Place who had a strong finish passing several teams to end up second. Most valuable players were Bob DeRoeck (3 time winner) Ryan Grimm (2 time winner), Linda Asleson (4 time winner) and Carol Todd (1st time winner).

1st Sherman Card

It was 3 o’clock and the players gathered to pull peas for positions and to see whom their opponents were going to be. All players knew that one win would get them into the finals on Sunday for a shot at the title. The pressure of qualifying could be seen in the players before each of their shots. Sixteen players started today consisting of female, rookies, and veteran players. Seasoned spectators joined the players in the fine art of talking trash, while new spectators Three Little Monkeys watched in bewilderment. By 9 o’clock 8 players had qualified for the finals. Qualifier rounds are one game; you must win to get into the finals. Sunday Feb. 8th the day of the finals for the 04 World Fingerpool Championships. From the qualifying rounds 8 players advanced into the finals. The players seemed a little more relaxed today knowing that double elimination is played in the final rounds of competition. The games started about 3 o’clock and ended around 9 o’clock with a new world champion. Sherman “The Professor” Card took 1 st . place. This makes the 3 rd time his name appears on the World Champion Fingerpool Cup. While JB “Grandma” Boykin took 2nd and Maury Fogel took 3rd. Unfortunately 2nd Place John Boykin this year the ballast rule was exercised. Maury Fogel shooting at the eight ball temporarily set his ballast down and shot. Unfortunately he made it (ouch). In fingerpool you must have a beverage in your nonshooting hand this is what’s called ballast. If you make a ball without ballast you lose your next shot. And if you make the eight ball without ballast you lose the game. The World Fingerpool Organization (WFO) would like to thank everyone who supported and participated in The World Championships. The WFO would also like to 3rd Place Maury Fogel thank Loretta & Maury Fogel, the owners of the Longhorn Saloon for their continuous support.

Half-Ball Secrets

D J Every Saturday at 9PM

continued from page 8

your perfect draw may degrade just the right amount to get the angle you want. Similarly, if you are in a situation where the shot requires a hit thinner than half-ball, you know immediately that it will be nearly impossible to pull the cue ball back to the 90-degree line. One more factor in this shot is the weight of the cue ball. Many cue balls that start out the same weight as the object balls are worn down in play from the constant abrasion of the tip and chalky cloth. You see “red circle” cue balls that have turned into “faint pink circle” cue balls because the owner is too cheap to replace worn-out equipment. Such a light cue ball will draw far more easily than a cue ball of the proper weight. On the other hand, if you play on a coin-op table that uses a large cue ball — the traditional “bar ball” — you have the opposite problem. It will be much harder to draw the cue ball. How much harder? You already know how to find out, but more importantly, you now have a shot to test the equipment. Also, if the cue ball is brand new and regulation size, but the object balls are old and worn down, you will see a little of the “bar ball” phenomenon. In my next column, I’ll go over some facets of using follow on half-ball hits.

Quick-Clean Sponsor of BCtv Brushless Pool Table Cleaner Will Also Sponsor TV Events in 2004 Billiard Cub Network is proud to announce the addition of Quick-Clean, the brushless pool and billiard table cleaner, as a new sponsor of Billiard Club television. 30-second commercials and in show promos for the product have escalated sales to prompt the agreement. Hodges cleaned all tournament tables at both the U S Open 9-Ball Championship and the Derby City Classic after each match. “It got to the point where the players were asking to have the tables cleaned, claiming a better playing cloth speed with more consistency.” BCn taped cleaning session during all featured matches at the U S Open and the Derby City Classic to create the commercial spots and in-show promos for the product. “The product is really taking off and the sales and distribution load needed to be somewhat centrally located as part of the marketing and advertising vehicle that’s driving the sales. It’s a great match for Quick-Clean.” Quick-Clean is a dry foam surfactant that is sprayed over the whole table and wiped off the playing surface with a micro-fiber wiper and off the rails with a micro-fiber rag. Quick-Clean emulsifies the chalk and dirt in the table cloth and the micro-fiber wiper removes it from the surface, restoring the cloth. More importantly, Quick-Clean eliminates brushing and vacuuming that harm the fibers and the playability of the cloth. The end result is a cleaner playing surface that lasts much longer than ever before.

Tournament Results

Tournament Planning Well, I’ve been in and around pool for almost 40 years. I consider myself lucky to always find a good pool room wherever I lived. Seems like California has got a LOT OF GREAT POOL ROOM OWNERS and one pretty good PLAYER’S ASSOCIATION. Hard Times Billiards in Sacramento CA will be having it’s 5th annual Jamboree this year thanks to the cooperation of Chet Itow of California Billiards. Chet has been having the very successful “traditional RENO Warmup” for years and has graciously offered to hold it back a week, so that Hard Times will be able to hold the Jamboree the week before the SANDS Reno shootout. Chet Itow will still be having his great tournament May 22nd and 23rd. Hard Times will start their Jamboree tournament May 25th until May 30th. Much thanks to Tony Annigoni for running up his cell phone bill and putting thousands of miles on his car, making all of the communications worthwhile. The USPPA and California Billiards (Mountain View), Hard Times Billiards (Sacramento), Jointed Cue (Sacramento), Jay’s Billiards (Hollywood Park), Ragg’s Rack Room (Eureka), The Billiard Connection (Northridge CA), P&J Billiards (Willow Creek CA), Sands (Reno) have all worked out a 2004 calendar of events. The listings were collected to help prevent any conflicts that might occur in making the schedules work. I have never seen this type of communication between pool hall owners. They all want their events to be successful and be the best that they can offer for the players. This kind of scheduling has been needed to avoid conflicts for a very long time in the pool industry. The west coast pool rooms seem to have “got it together” better and quicker than the rest of the pool world. There is a total of $137,000 of “added money”, for these tournaments. All within 500 miles of each other. Who says there isn’t any money to be made this year in California and Reno? See what communications and proper scheduling conditions can do to help a pool room and tournaments be profitable to all concerned. See (or see usppa ad page 20) for the 2004 tournament listings.

WSPL State Champions

continued from the front page

newly attained division of Port Orchard was formed in September of 2003 there were still many unanswered questions; but the one fact that was well known is that there were many talented players in the Port Orchard area. After being organized into their team by captain Rich Lee, the team managed a fourth place finish in the Fall Title Holders Tournament in January. This was good experience for the new team!! Only one team in that tournament, the Big Rack out of Eli’s Roadhouse, beat them and went on to win the Fall Title Holders 2nd Place: Time Out Shooting Crew (back row) Bonnie Bergman, Phil Tournament. That experience would Griffin DC, Dave Ehlers, Orla Poole (front row) Fred Sayre-Co-Captain, give the Bethel Saloon team the (not pictured) Rich Moore-Captian, Roy Pena confidence they needed to compete on a higher level in March. The confidence level obtained in their first and last matches, as they went on to do what no team has done before them; contributed to them winning matches against very experienced teams in sweeping fashion. On their way through the field of competitive teams they would also see what they had experienced in their Fall Title Holders Tournament, sudden death matches all around them!! The 2004 State Championship would field a total of nine sudden death matches, (a record) and make the entire event very exciting and more competitive than any past State Championship so far. Many matches went down to the 3rd Place: Burning Felt (back row) Shannon Williams-Co-Captain, last match and last two balls, but it Dave Hagedorn, Tony Betschart, (center) Dawn Betschart-Captain, was the Bethel Saloon Pirates that (not pictured) Tony Bradford, Rich Owens really established a presence that would show against the Time Out Shooting Crew on Monday night!!

By Annie Gay February 28th, 2004 Sharky’s Pool & Brew of Salem, Oregon held an open women’s tournament. Colleen Carter, Sharky’s manager kindly donated five dollars per player and also had five diamond rings donated to this event. Renee Nohren of All That Glitters in Salem was present to donate the rings and offer free sizing for the women. We had a drawing for two of the rings and the other three were given to first through third place. The two diamond rings were won by Sharon Hall of Sheridan and Shawn Hartung of Vancouver. This was an eight ball, double elimination, race to three, open women’s event. The entry fee was $15. The tournament director is Annie Gay of Salem. We had intended to make this a two day event but the play went so smoothly we were able to finish the tournament in one day.
