State Pool Tournament Winners

Louie0001                                Louie has been gone from home since Wednesday morning about 9am, until this evening (Sunday) about 6pm. He has been playing in the State Pool Tournament which is held each year in Davenport Iowa. He started out by playing in the single’s 9- ball competition, and won 33rd place, which paid him $90. On Thursday, he played in the 8-ball competition, but did not place in that event. On Friday, he pretty much had the day free, except for playing in some mini-tournaments and some Scotch Double’s tournaments, so after I got off work, I ran down to Davenport to have lunch with him, and spend some time junkin’ with him. I spent about 3 1/2 hours with him, and our friend Jeff, then I came home. For some information on the tournament, click on the link below.

Saturday was when the team tournaments started. Louie’s team played about 12:30 in the afternoon, and spent the day playing in different brackets (winners and loser brackets). He played pretty late last night, then his team needed to be back at the River Center to play again today at 1:30pm. They ended up with 4th place out of 84 teams in their division, and each member got $140 ($700 for the team), so he was a very happy camper!  Obie's0001                                Members of the team, were Tim Sommers, Craig Bodenhofer, Chad Spain, Sean Sommers, and Louie Bartels.

Louie had a very good time, and we would like to say a special thanks to my sissypoo for providing him a place to stay while he attended this event. We love you, Nancy Jo!

Have a wonderful week, and be blessed!

I found your blog through Julie and wanted to say "Hi".

I haven't played pool in the LONGEST time. I'm not good but I like to make people laugh when I try to play.
