13th Annual Western BCA Regional 8-Ball Championships Tops $100,000 Payout; 1220 players Lincoln City Oregon is a beautiful place to visit - especially for 1,220 Western BCA pool players, arriving for the best regional pool tournament in the country! The blue waters of the Pacific Ocean matched the blue felt on 80 Diamond tournament tables, and Chinook Winds Casino and Resort once again was alive with pool players and their entourage. AT THE BEACH IN Players loved the Diamonds and the red circle cue balls. Fifteen separate tournaments were contested, with payouts topping $100,000 for the first time in the 13-year history of this event. Scotch Doubles started on Monday evening, Singles events started Wednesday morning and Team events started on Friday evening. By 10:30 PM Sunday night the last ball had been struck. Between Monday evening and Sunday night tens of thousands of games had been played and champions had emerged. Old-timers and newcomers alike were excited to be in such a great environment for pool. There was something for every skill level and many new players were caught examining the veterans in action, looking

for those skills that make pool such a great game. Where else can you see the old, the young, the handicapped, the rich and the poor all come together to compete against each other? Pool is a sport for the masses and Western BCA tournaments at Chinook Winds have become the ‘big show’ for pool in the Northwest. When an event gets to be the size of these Regional 8-Ball Championships, things change. The big change this year was INCOLN ITY using Diamond tables and red circle cue balls, but one other change was the filming of finals by OTBntV. All of the finals of the Masters’ events were filmed and are viewable on OTBnTV (www.otbntv.com) on the Western BCA Video Magazine. There are also photo galleries and some interviews with winners and other players. Check it out - Cheese did a fantastic job. OTBnTV also donated a Predator Poison Cue which was given away to Teresa Palmer, Cherry City League. Also, professional photographer Dave Schelske took numerous close-up photos and room shots at the championships. His photos can be viewed and purchased at www.westlinnstudios.com.

Two Tough Shots By: Bob Jewett of the SFBA

cue ball. I won’t reveal the way I like until the end of the column, so stop reading now if you want to find your own way first. In Shot B the challenge is to cut the object ball straight into the pocket. Both the cue ball and the object ball are even with the first diamonds from the corner pocket. The shot looks pretty tough when you’re down on it, but a not-so-hard, smooth stroke will do it. With the correct speed, if the cue ball misses the object ball, it will go a total of three table lengths. Most players start out hitting the shot too hard. This is the sort of shot you may need to warm up to. Start with an easier shot — put the cue ball at A. If you can make it three times in a row from there, move to B, and so on, until you get to the diagrammed position. If you have too much trouble even with position A, move the cue ball out to the line and see how thin a shot you can achieve. Shot B is a good one for your snooker-like stance. See if getting your chin almost on the cue stick, or even rubbing on the cue stick improves your accuracy. OK, time for the spoiler. In Shot A the way that works best is to play with some left english and a hair of draw and hit the object ball nearly full. Don’t hit the ball too hard or the english won’t take as well. This is a

One of the advantages of going to m a j o r tournaments is that in the times between matches you get to swap shots with other “shot collectors.” Here are two Bob Jewett tough shots that were discussed at the recent Derby City Classic that can be used for practice or as challenge shots. In Shot A, the goal is to bank the object ball cross-side. The problem is that there is an almost sure kiss in the shot. The setup is critical but pretty easy. The object ball is even with the diamond closest to the side pocket and one ballspace off the cushion. The cue ball is on the spot. (If the spot is pitted, move the cue ball towards the object ball a little or use the other end of the table. Your first problem is to decide whether you want to try to “cross” the ball, which means to hit it on the left side and make the cue ball cross the path of the ball and get out of the way before the object ball comes off the rail. The other way is to try to “stiff” or “pinch” the object ball. Usually this is done by shooting

A Post From ... I just got off the phone with Bill Schick who gave me the following information about this cue and it’s current condition. Don Wagner and Bill Schick were friends for more than 30 years. This friendship started before Bill even started making cues. According to Mr. Schick, him and Don purchased cues from Frank Paradise together in 1965, and the cue pictured throughout this post was the cue that Don purchased at that time. When their cues were ready for pick-up they went down to Franks shop and picked up their cues together. While Don loved his cue in all respects, Bill was not as happy with his. At the time Bill had purchased a lower end Paradise, and Don had opted for a High End Fancy model. Now according Bill this incident was greatly responsible for his desire to build cues. Now when Bill was telling this, all I could say is WOW this exchange changed history, and it created one of the most highly respected cue makers in this country today, who still builds his cues by hand with no CNC Machinery. The cue pictured here in this thread was part of that heritage, and this pedigree is very hard if not impossible to top. According to Bill this cue was a Special Paradise Model “D” Black Zephyr due to the extra inlays and work, and the point construction was done by Paradise not, Burton Spain. Bill told me that he had gone to Franks shop on a number of occasions, and actually watched Points being milled in Franks shop, and that the points in this cue were made in Franks shop. All the Mother Pearl inlays in this cue were part of the original construction with the exception of the Boxed Pearl inlays that were inlay-ed when the cue was refinished by Bill Schick. One inlay says Wagner after the cues owner, and the other says Holdem who was Don’s Pit Bull Dog, and according Bill, this dog kinda smiled and had a wounderful disposition for this type of dog. Classic cues made a comment

that the butt of the cue including the butt cap appeared to have been replaced. According to Bill around 1970, Don decided that he wanted weight added to the cue. The cue was taken to Danny Jane’s and Bill Stroud at Joss custom Cues where weight was added, the Butt cap was replaced, and the words NO-TE-APRES were added under the window above Franks trade mark. The NO-TE-APES name came from the fact that Don was a retired Air Force Officer. One day while Don and Bill were looking at some photo’s of old planes from WWII they saw a plane from the Flying Tiger Squadron with this name painted on the planes nose. The words mean HAVE-NOFEAR and due to his profession and being a Pool Player that name was chosen for that cue. KV at Classic cues also said that he thought the cue should have fancy inlays in the butt like the Forearm. However, according to Bill Schick the cue did not ever have a fancy butt, and he was there when the cue was picked up from Frank. The only modifications from the time the cue left Franks shop are those listed above. Many thanks to Bill Schick, whose memory is fantastic, and who was gracious enough to spend an hour with me talking on the phone this morning about this cue and his very good friend “CAPP”. To all that have posted thanks very much, it has been a pleasure sharing this information with the forum. Hopefully in the next Publication that covers Famous cue makers some of the information may be corrected. While Burton Spain may have made some point Blanks for Frank Paradise due to the large number of orders that he was receiving before his death he also made his own blanks in his shop. For those who dispute this or are not sure if this occurred all I can say is contact Bill Schick, as far as I am concerned his word on this subject is as good as GOLD in the Bank. Have a great day, Craig Rittel, Full Splice Billiards

Once again, $500 was added, instead of the a 7-6 win in their first match of the tournament, Tommy and Eddie blazed their way through the rest of the tournament. Although they had several strongly contended matches along the way, the opportunities and scores seemed to fall mainly to Tommy and Eddie, with final match results appearing somewhat lop-sided. What can you say? Tommy and Eddie simply played a great and COMPLETE tournament! 2nd Place went to LT and Allen Hanson of Tacoma, who were, simply put, the survivors after all of the dust settled between the 3-4 real contenders to get back into the Championship match. LT and Allen wrangled their way through quite a few very tight matches throughout the tournament on their trek back toward the top. Winding up in 3rd Place were Jim Conway and Lance Bauge (Lance arrived in Oak Harbor hot off of a big individual championship just last week in the Open Division of the huge annual western BCA 8-Ball event at Lincoln City, OR — Congrats, Lance!) of the Soundview Bar & Grill, Everett, WA. Jim and Lance narrowly averted disaster in a hot and intense battle against Cody Clark and Miguel Morfin, coming from being down 5-6 to win the match 7-6, to advance to the playoff for 4th Place.

Wild W est Shoot out West Shootout

April 2008

by: Don “Cheese” Akerlow

GREAT FALLS, MONTANA March 28, 29, 30, 2008 The owners of the 8 Ball In, treated their customers, pool players and those who were there for the tournament this weekend to a spectacular trick shot exhibition by none other than Tom “Dr. Cue” Rossman, World Champion and World Class Entertainer. Dr. Cue astounded a standing room only crowd. OTBnTV was there to capture Dr. Cue’s show. Free video of his performance is online at www.otbntv.com just click on the Wild West Shootout Video Magazine. The tournament started on Saturday with 58 men and 17 women which Stephanie Crawford was less than anticipated perhaps due to the weather or the high gasoline prices. This did not diminish the quality of players as well as their play that lasted throughout Saturday and well into the night. The race was to 9 on both sides for both men and women. The players took advantage of the 8 Ball In’s accommodations with a full bar, and full kitchen and a wait staff second to none. By the time the dust cleared Saturday and all the players had shot their last shot, 16 men and 4 women returned Sunday at 10 am Ladies Division 1st $370 Stephanie Crawford, Great Falls, MT 2nd $275 Phyllis Fernandez, Spokane, WA 3rd $185 Sky Tigart, Great Falls, MT 4th $95 Lori Warnell, Billings, MT

for a redraw of the brackets. Stephanie Crawford showed a brilliant comeback after being down 8-0 in the first set to Phyllis Fernandez which she lost 9-3. The second set was a reversal, Stephanie played near flawless 9-Ball while taking advantage of Phyllis’ missed shots and mistakes to pull out the double elimination win. The men’s finals saw Edwin Montal jump out to a lead that he never relinquished. Tyler Edey who won last year’s 9-Ball event was unable to overtake Edwin’s superb playing and finished second. OTBnTv.com filmed the women’s and men’s finals and it is available online to watch free. The 8-Ball In would like to thank everybody who took the time to show up and play and hope to see you for the next Wild West Shootout.

By: Shari Ross

The Soundview Bar & Grill and P.C.’s Pub held the Women’s Everett Invitational tournament Feb. 23rd & 24th. This was a 4 person team event with 7 teams comprised of some of WA and B.C.’s strongest women players all vying for their share of the prize pool which was sweetened by $500 by the host bars. Playing a Round Robin seemed to be the best format for everyone involved and to truly determine “THE BEST”.

4 Non-Blondes: (l to r) Regene Wentzell, Tamre Geene Rogers, Brenda Willis, Jennifer Wishinski

Play got underway Saturday morning with most teams feeling like they had a shot at 1st place. That was until 3 of the 7 teams went 15-1 the first round. With Fab Four: (l to r) Melanie Elder, Alisha Rodgers, a start like that it Shari Ross, Bernie Foster was bound to be an exciting tournament for both players and spectators alike. Every team had their shining star but one player in particular made sure this would hold

and a special thanks to Ed Slade for running it. 1st $680 4 Non- Blondes 2nd $420 Fab Four 3rd $280 Smokin

Smokin: (l to r) Sherry Griffin Janie Reckard Angela Jensen Leah Hurst

true, with a record of 23-1, Tamre Gene Rogers was not only on the winning team but was definitely the tournament M.V.P. Congrats Tamre on a feat probably not to be repeated in the near future. As for the rest of the field there was much to see... many table runs, beautiful safeties, and of course sportsmanship at its best. We would all like to thank The Soundview, & P.C.’s Pub for hosting the event

In the eight years that the North vs. South Cactus Cup Challenge has been played, never before has there been a finish like what took place during this years challenge. The 2008 Cup started at Main Street Billiards in Tucson on Sunday, March 2nd. The South squad jumped to an early lead when their (10) rated players, Dave Capone & Kevin Peterson, both won over the North's Tyson Cole & Tres Kane. Next up in Tucson were the (6) rated players. The North's Jodie Villegas & Lance Smyth both won over the South's Abby Bentley & Chris Amadori to even the score at 2-2. The (7) rated players were next. The North's Jim Pennington defeated Nicky Hayashi (S) while the South's John Wells defeated the North's Mark Nelson. The score now stood at 3-3 until the South won the Scotch Doubles match between the (7's) to take a 4-3 lead. From this point forward the South dominated by winning every match played the rest of the day. The (8's) and the (9's) from the South, Tim Christopher, Jim Bentley, Ricardo Camarena, and Andy Kucher all won creating a huge 8-3 lead after leg #1. The North was in the biggest hole they had ever experienced in the eight years of the Challenge. Leg #2 would take place the following Sunday on the North's home court at Alexander's. The North would definitely have their work cut out for them on March 9th. On March 9th, the North started leg #2 by playing their six rated players who had both won the previous week in Tucson. Both North 6's won again. Jodie Villegas & Lance Smyth defeated the South's Chris Amadori & Russ Hopkins. These two North wins narrowed the overall gap MON - FRI: 2PM - 2AM SAT & SUN: NOON - 2AM

2008 Cactus Cup to 8-5. The North matched up the 10's next. Tyson Cole (N) lost to the South's Kevin Peterson while the North's Tres Kane fought back from a huge hole in his match against Dave Capone to keep the South's lead to just three points, 9-6. The South 10's then defeated the North's 10's in scotch doubles to take a 10-6 lead. At this point it did not look real good for the North team. With the North in trouble and facing must wins to stay alive, the North's Bernie Store and Susan Williams both won over the South's Olivia Jackson and Tim C h r i s t o p h e r. These two huge North wins brought the North back with-in two points. The over-all score now stood at 10-8, South. The North put their 9's up next. Pete Gresh Sr. &

would once again give the South the 2008 Cup. Sure enough the North pulled it out and the Cup was still up for grabs. The overall score at this point was 11-10 South. The only rating left to play in the 2nd and last leg of the challenge were the seven rated players. The South's John Wells defeated the North's Tony Spade to give the South a two point lead at 1210. The other (7's) match was the North's Sara Miller playing the South's Nicky Hayashi. A win by Nicky in this match would once again close the North out. It did not happen. Nicky got on the hill but Sara battled back and won the match hill/ hill. That win kept the North alive again. The over all score now stood 12-11 South. The math was simple from here. If the South won the scotch match between the 7's, the 2008 Cup would be theirs for only the second time in eight years. If the North could win this match, the overall score would be tied and the tie breaker would have to be played. In a nail biter, the North fell behind again 6-4 in the race to seven. The South was one game away from the Cup while the North needed three games to force the tie. Sure enough Sara and Tony fought back to even the match hill/hill then won the match when Tony snapped the nine on the hill/hill game to finally, after two weeks of play, get the North even overall at 12-12. This was the first time in eight years that the Challenge ended in a tie. As decided years ago by the North captain Ron Merseal and the South

Brandon Butler would be playing the South's Ricardo Camarena & Andy Kucher. Brandon lost to Ricardo to increase the South lead to three points, 11-8. Pete fell behind in his match to Andy. A loss by Pete would have given the South a four point lead and the North would have been mathematically eliminated. Pete, however, came back and won over Andy hill/hill. The North was captain Bob Jackson, any tie would be broke by still alive but still behind, over-all, 11-9. playing one more match with both captains The North 9's would have to play a Scotch Doubles match against the South 9's.

Every time they won and most times they had to come back in those matches. They were down but never out. They fought like Champions and EARNED the title of 2008 North vs. South Cactus Cup Champions.

Like Teaching a New Trick to a Dog Samm Diep (c) March 2008

And no, I’m not referring to “teaching an old dog new tricks.” That’s a different article. About three years ago, I was teaching Vegas, my white lab, to “wave” on command. Following the guidance of a book full of doggy tricks I had purchased, I could sort of get him to do it. He struggled a bit, gave me that tilted-head look of confusion, and just tried to get the treat from my hand. We worked on it for about 45 minutes and I just let him go play. The next evening, I called him over, had him sit in front of me, and along with the waving hand gesture, I said, “wave.” Well, low and behold, on his very first attempt, he was waving. Without any assistance from me at all, he had remembered everything we Samm Diep worked on and was waving on his own. Nowadays, all I have to do is make the hand gesture and a little white paw comes creeping up. Not to compare us with dogs, but I couldn’t help noticing an uncanny parallel after a difficult practice session the other day. I’d recently been struggling with my stroke hand inadvertently inching slightly back on my cue whenever my adrenaline starts pumping. I don’t always notice it when it’s happening. I just notice something feels a little off and I miss the shot. On Monday afternoon, I had a three hour practice session where, before every single shot, I checked my perpendicular to make sure my hand was in the correct spot. Initially, it felt so awkward, like I was way too far forward. I didn’t care. I forced myself to shoot it anyway. Most of the time, I would make the shot. Sometimes, I was so flustered I would screw something else up. I struggled. Admittedly, I was frustrated. I felt so inconsistent and wasn’t even sure if I was making any progress at all. I finished my practice feeling a bit deflated and left with my tail between my legs. On Tuesday night, I screwed my cues together, determined to get to the bottom of this. As usual, I threw some balls out and just stroked some shots in to warm up; with some big powerful strokes. It was like a miracle. Everything I was forcing myself to so consciously do the day before was all happening on its own. I could see the shots. My stance and stroke hand all fell right into place. It was effortless. I was thrilled. I had made progress. Forcing myself to the brink of madness the day before wasn’t all for nothing. Like Vegas, I had successfully learned a new trick. I absorbed as much as I could on the first day and when I gave myself a break and returned to the table refreshed, it all sunk in. PLEASE BE SURE TO VISIT POOLTIPJAR.COM.

ST PA TRICKS D AY PATRICKS DA SCOTCH DOUBLES by: Michelle Barkdoll

On March 17th, Malarkey’s Pool & Brew in Tacoma, WA held its 1st annual St Patricks Day Mixed Scotch Doubles Tournament. Entry was $10 per team and the House added 100%. Format was 8 Ball, double elimination, race to 2. With fun being the primary objective, twelve teams battled it out for a part of the $240 prize money. Local favorites, Clara Silvas and Don Wirtaman whipped through the upper part of the tournament bracket to play against the local UNfavorites, the bar owners, Michelle Barkdoll and Clark Smith for the Point. Michelle & Clark won the match with help from those ever so wonderful ‘rolls’. Stacy Medina and Steve Clardy lost their first match against Jasmine Nephew and Frank Martinez sending them to the B side. Winning their next five matches, Stacy & Steve met up against Clara & Don. The match going hill to hill, Stacy and Steve were victorious once again. Stacy and Steve would now have to play Michelle and Clark for ‘all the cheese on mars’. Somehow between mutual thoughts of strangulation ? and days of missing straight-in balls, Michelle and Clark ‘saw the light’ and won the match. 1st $144 Michelle Barkdoll/Clark Smith 2nd $72 Stacy Medina/Steve Clardy 3rd $24 Clara Silvas/Don Wirtaman Thanks to all the teams that participated! Stay tuned for future scotch doubles tournaments where they may be a ‘beat the owners’ bounty! ?

$25 Charge for Second Piece of Luggage Effective May 5th, 2008, United Airlines and US Airways will begin charging domestic passengers an additional $25 to check a second piece of luggage. Exceptions to this rule: if you are flying first class or are part of their mostfrequent-flier programs. This charge is anticipated to generate an additional $75 to 100 million in revenue and cost savings each year. These are the only two airlines that have currently jumped on the bandwagon thus far but we’ll just have to see who follows. This comes as a bad time for pool players as it’s just before Nationals in Vegas. What does this mean for pool players? Well, if you don’t already own one, you may want to consider investing in a larger piece of luggage that is long enough to carry your pool cues and clothes altogether. Caution, however, most airlines have a 50 pound weight limit and it’s really easy to exceed that with all the extra room and weight from our cues/case. For a wide selection of over-sized travel bags, visit SammsPocket.com.

K IDS THE WINNERS Combining opportunities to challenge top pros with a pool raffle put $2,300 in the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) coffers at last week’s Hopkins Super Billiards Expo. The fundraiser was made possible by the generous donation by Brunswick Billiards for the pool table raffle, a booth courtesy of Expo producers Dawn & Allen Hopkins, and pro players who provided exciting challenge matches. Professional billiard players donating their time to assist in the charity challenge were: Artistic Pool Masters Championship participants Andy Segal, Bruce Barthelette and Tim Chin; WPBA Pro Players: Ga Young Kim and Allison Fisher; and UPA Pro Players: Mika Immonen, Mike Jackson, Raj Hundal and Tim Hill. Several volunteers assisted BEF to make this a successful fundraiser: Bob Hess, Martyne Backman and Roger Gross. The Brunswick pool table was won by Pam Burns of Conowingo, MD. Ms. Burns is ecstatic about the opportunity to play pool at home with her 15 year old son, Dustin Majerowicz. Dustin will be practicing and intends to qualify for the 2008 BEF Junior National 9- Ball Championships which will be held at the University of Arizona, Tucson this summer. The BEF would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone whose donations, time and commitment help to build youth billiard programs and support the future of our sport.

final was a study in contrasts and opposites. On the one hand were Bobby Campbell and Molly Oliver of 1st Place Women’s Master Singles Western Washington BCA Pool Jackie Fitchner League, young, talented, fearless, and relatively “new” to Western BCA competition. On the other hand were Guy and Robbin Iredale out of Juan de Fuca Pool League, long-time pool players and no strangers to WBCA regional tournaments. The final was actually the second meeting of these two pairs as they played each other in the hill match of the winner’s side earlier in the tournament. That meeting sent the veterans into the loser’s side of the bracket, hoping to get another shot at the new kids. After waiting until the loser’s side of the bracket caught up with them, the Iredales played a very tough couple (Ernie Omori and Vicki Knutson of Sno-King BCA Pool League who finished 3rd) and got their wish for a replay. The final match was hard fought and played with skill and strategy. The final score was 5-3 for Campbell and Oliver, who played well throughout the match and proved to be too much for their opponents to 1st Place Men’s Open B Singles Cody Johnson handle on their way to the title.

The Master Scotch Doubles champions had to wait until Sunday to finish up, because all four players were 1st Place Master Scotch Doubles Carissa Biggs/Steve Lingelbach

Bill Rosenberry and Faye Fang won the hill and looked like the winners, but Steve Lingelbach and Carissa Biggs came through the loser’s bracket and won the first final match to force the sudden death final. Steve and Carissa won the finals with solid play. When the event started, Faye 1st Place Women’s Senior Singles was an Open player, but after she Pam Carraway played in the Singles, she finished the event as a Master. The powerhouse team of Mike Stevens and Jackie Fitchner finished 3rd in their first time playing together. Russell Cearley and Kris Robbins, from the Eugene area, finished in 4th place. After an early exit from last year’s Men’s Master Singles, Glenn Atwell returned as the 8-Ball champion for the fifth time. Glenn beat last year’s champion, Dan Louie, in a classic match-up. In the finals Dan jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but missed a tough masse on the 8-ball when he came up short on shape in a nice run in the 5th game. That let Glenn get back in the match, and he never looked back as he ran out several times, winning the match 7-3. Matt Horner of Salem, who played Glenn for the point, took 3rd, while veteran Don Wirtaman took 4th. 1st Place Men’s Open A Singles Miguel Morfin The Women’s Master Singles champion is Jackie Fitchner, with a win over the ‘winningest’ woman in Western BCA history, Cindy Doty.

another chance to grab the brass ring. John Evans, Darrell Schulden, Mike White and Steve Myers added Ron Ok and Mike Medlock to the mix, and this time they came away as champions. The road wasn’t easy but the final match against PC’s #1 went as they hoped. PC’s #1 with brothers J. Keith and Brian Johnson, Miguel Morfin, Adam Stromberg and Steve Kielow from the Seattle area had a good run to finish second. Two Tacoma teams, Q’s Cruisers and Schooner Predators finished 3rd and 4th. Tuesday night was mini-tournament heaven, with over 50 separate tournaments run by Stacy and Alex. Also on Tuesday night, the popular 10-ball ring games were held. In the Master’s ring game, Jeff Jerome did it again by taking the top prize over 12 other players. Each player put in $100 and play started on 3 tables. By the time the players were whittled down to one table 6 players remained, Jim Conway, Jeff Jerome, Ivan Doty, Robert Colby, Todd Speakman and Matt Bryan. Jeff got down to his last chip but turned it around to pocket $900, while Ivan took $400 for 2nd. In the Open ring game, seven players put up their $100, and Miguel Morfin took 1st, good for $500, with Jeff Coates winning $200 for 2nd. On Sunday night, another ring game - bank pool - started, and many think it may be a future event. Chinook Winds Casino is a great place to have this event since there is so much to do in Lincoln City.

they were playing on the beach and visiting the local community. Gary Benson ran the brackets, showing why he is the absolute best under trying conditions. Veteran Master player Ted Woodward gave up playing in the tournament to help Gary keep the tournament flowing. Thanks, Ted! The tighter corner pockets on the Diamond tables added time to some of the matches and that caused some very late matches almost every night. Diamond Promotions and Ric Jones provided 80 tables in great condition and they were in full use. Chinook Winds Casino Resort added $10,000 to the event. It was a pleasure to work with the Chinook Winds crew including Bob, Keith, Kelli, Melissa and Belinda. BCAPL added $2,300, and thanks goes out to the people at the top who make it happen, Mark Griffin, David Vandenberghe (who was sighted at Lincoln City) and Bill and Glenna Stock. Thank you all very much! The best full color tournament program in history happened this year.

Pat Gamble/Cathy Gamble lost their first match to Kevin and Melissa 7-5, but despite Cathy not feeling well they came all the way

back to defeat them 6-4 to advance to the finals against Eddie and Mikki; it was a tight match at 55, Pat and Cathy had an opportunity to win the first set, but Eddie and Mikki came out on top 7-5. We would like to send a special thanks out to some of the newcomers including Aleisha Autrey, Trixie Miles, and Barbara Heiman for having the courage and heart to play in a high caliber tournament for their first time.

It was Easter Sunday and the weather was really nasty, so it was like pulling teeth to get anyone interested in participating. But, in the end, 12 brave souls finally decided to play in a race-to-4 on the front, race-to-3 on the back 9-Ball tournament. Entry was $10 a head and the Legion added 50% to the pot, which turned out to be a total of $180. Play started at about 2 PM and was finished at around 6:30 PM.

Tacoma, WA 3-1. The Blue Tier was slotted to attend the Regional event in Grants Pass, OR. The three tiers for competition in the 9-Ball Shootout are: Green Tier (skill level 1,2&3) White Tier (skill level 4&5) Black Tier (skill level 6,7,8&9) Dave Heuett (SL7) of Federal Way, WA was the winner of the Black Tier. Winning his first match against Dan Schott 46-16, he lost his second against Rob Strobel 46-26 sending him to the B side. Dave defeated Brent Redinger 46-20 only to meet Dan again. Dave won 46-20 to bring him Mary Jacob

into the finals match against Jeff Wells (SL7) of Seattle, WA. Victory struck, Dave won 55-10. Apinant (Peanut) Preyer (SL 5) of Lakewood, WA took the White Tier by storm. He defeated Adam Brand 387, Joe Bossi 38-19, David Fitzsimmons 38-17, again Joe Bossi 38-27 to meet Glen Curtis (SL 4) from Kent, WA in the finals match. Peanut being unstoppable won the match 3819. The Green Tier was an interesting

George Price

bracket. Generally sixteen players comprise a Regional Tournament Board. Since only five skill level 1, 2 or 3’s qualified; the APA was gracious enough to let that few of participants compete on a Board, instead of holding them over a season till more qualify. The Board consisted of five players, three of which were a ‘no-show’. Therefore, Kasie Warren (SL 2) of Auburn, WA and Karen Dhaliwal (SL 3) of Bellevue went directly to the Finals match. Kasie beat Karen 19-10 to send her on her way to the NSC. However, since the APA guarantees every player to play twice, Karen did not have Glen Curtis

another opponent to play against. The APA gave her direct entry into the next Regional event. All’s well that ends well! Best of luck to the six players qualified for the National Singles Championship. Viva Las Vegas. The flu bug picked the wrong time to hit me, but my goal was for everyone to have a good time. Since the ten 3 1/2 x 7 pool tables were being used Jeff Wells for the tournament and some may not have felt like playing on any of the eleven 4 1/2 x 9 tables, card and board games (Monopoly, Life, Yatzee, Trouble, Backgammon, etc) were available (APA continued on page 27)

at the Las Vegas Cue Club The thirtyseventh stop of the 2007/2008 Pechauer All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) was hosted at Las Vegas Cue Club in Las Vegas, NV, on Saturday, March 1. The $500 added event drew nineteen players in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes. Past champion Gary Onomura (Las Vegas, NV) again took the undefeated path to the finals. In the A-side finals, Onomura (rated a “5” on a regional handicap system used) slipped by Rick White [5] (Las Vegas, NV) 5-3. Earlier in the A-bracket semi-finals, Onomura defeated Fred Delacruz [4] (Las Vegas, NV) 5-1, while White outpointed Fred Boggs [5] (Las Vegas, NV) 5-4. In the B-side quarterfinals Jimmy Moore and Fred Boggs eliminated at 5th place Fred Delacruz 5-3 and Henry Nogiec [5] (Las Vegas, NV) 5-3 and 5-4 respectively. In the semifinals, Moore ousted Boggs at 4th place by a score of 5-4. The B-side finals showcased Rick White being eliminated by Jimmy Moore 5-3. The tourney finals featured undefeated Gary Onomura versus streaking Jimmy Moore, but Onomura was up to the task, winning the title 5-3 in the first set!
