STATE POOL TOURNAMENT PLANNED
By Joe Dixon
ABATE of PA chapters are presently holding their pool tournament to decide who will represent them at the District shoot offs. Then each district will be sending their winners to the state pool tournament.
The state pool tournament will take place on Saturday, February 17, 2018 and this year the event will be held at the Falls Creek Eagles, 189 Jefferson Avenue, Falls Creek, PA 15840. Registration begins at 10:30 AM and the players meeting will take place at 11:30 followed by the start of the tournament.
This year we will have more pool tables to play so each player will have more chances to get to the winners circle.
The Eagles will have a full menu and will also have food specials for those attending.
Each district is to send their top 5 shooters to the state tournament. Once your district has their tournament, please send the names of the winners to the ABATE office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and Popcorn will see that we have the listing of participants before the event. Deadline for emailing Popcorn is February 13. Make sure you include their complete name so she can find them in the state membership files. Remember all shooters have to be paid up members and has to have been members for one month before shooting in your chapterís tournament.
The Clarion Hotel that is off of Exit 97 of Interstate 80 is offering ABATE members a special rate of $55 a night so if you call them for a reservation make sure you mention that you are attending the ABATE of PA tournament and request the special room rates. Address for the Clarion Hotel is 1896 Rich Hwy, Dubois, PA 15801 and their telephone number is 814-503-8151.
