In the APA, Everyone Can Play - Anyone Can Win!
Congratulations to Stacia Pfizenmayer and Wendy Pyle for qualifying in the Singles Boards that were run this past weekend by Marcia Shinske and Ray Holmes. They will be playing in April at the Regional Singles Championships.
I really hate this part of my business and for our APA family. There is more sad news to announce. Joe Hill, team Captain for Bank Shot on Tuesday night 8-ball, has lost his son. The loss of a child who has not even begun to live his/her life is a frightening reality that Joe must live with. Please pray for Joe and his family as he grieves the loss of his son.
Singles Boards being run Saturday & Sunday, November 29th & 30th starting at 3:30pm
$10 First Match of bracket / Additional $10 Second Match of bracket.....
Brackets will be set up by handicap as much as possible based upon attendance. There will be "Women Only" boards also.
Boards will continue to run all evening if there are enough players interested in buying back in to keep going!!
The last day to qualify for the April 2015 Regional is November 30th.
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.
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.
