In the APA, Everyone Can Play - Anyone Can Win!
This was a write up about our own Larry Phlegar who is playing in the 9-Ball US Open
"One of the most colorful guys out there, Larry Phlegar, won his match against Canadian Randy Russell 11-8 but it could have been a larger margin if he had not missed several 9 ball shots.
He would play well until the last shot and then get completely out of his normal rhythm and rush the last shot. Nevertheless, he hung in there and came out of the pits a happy man."
I have some sad news to announce for our APA family members. Jackie Masters's mother passed away suddenly last week as well as Rob James's wife who suddenly passed away. Please keep them and their families in your prayers.
Congratulations to John Peters for winning the 9-Ball Singles Regional. He will be playing in Vegas in the Spring.
I want to thank Leeann Bunting for all her help these past 2 tournaments. You've been an incredible help to me and make the tournaments run much smoother. A special Thanks goes out to Ruby & Steve Boyd for providing us a nice place and atmosphere to play. We couldn't do it without the incredible staff at Breakaway...from the kitchen....to the bar....to the wait staff....to Ray, Doc and Bobby....your help is incredible and greatly appreciated. Everyone together makes these tournaments worthwhile.
I would like to congratulate Jackie Atwood for winning the Women's Regional US Amateur Qualifier this past weekend. Jackie will be playing in the US Amateur Championship held in Florida. Best of Luck to you.
Steve Boyd and I worked diligently on the seating arrangements and table assignments last night for the Thursday Divisions. We have resolved the issue and I assure you that this past Thursday night's fiasco will not happen again. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience Thursday night.
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.
