As many of you know, Louie loves to play pool. He has played pool for over 35 years, and has been in pool leagues for just as long. He is very good at it, but always striving to be better.
Louie has been very busy this year. The Wednesday night ‘South of Dubuque’ pool leagues ended for the season March 18th. The Coe’s Bar #2 team met this past Wednesday evening for supper and to receive their plaques. None of the team members were able to attend the awards meeting when the rest of the teams met a few weeks ago, so they had their own little celebration. In the photo below, from left to right, is Rory (Bozo), Jerry, then (Jody, & Ron, aka ‘Jaws’, owners, and Kristin, their sweet bar tender), then Mega, and Louie. The Coe’s 2 pool team finished first place this year with 23 wins and only 1 loss.
Maquoketa’s ‘Donna’s Boys’ (the Obie’s Bar and Grill team) were also 1st place in Timber City Tuesday Night pool leagues this year. They finished the season a week or so before the South of Dubuque leagues. Left to right is Tim, Louie, Chad and Jeff.
Trophies were awarded for highest totals on ‘8 on the break’. This year there was a three way tie, so three of the guys got trophies. Left to right, Louie, Jeff and Josh.
Back in February Louie’s team, ‘Rolling the DIce’ went to Waterloo for ‘Valley’ Tournaments and their team finished 7th out of over 70 teams. Left to right, Louie, Tim, Sean, Chad and Mega.
Most recently, Louie and his team played in Des Moines at the Iowa State Pool Tournament. Louie played in the 9 ball singles, the 8 ball singles, and team tournament. Louie won a little money in 8 ball singles, and finished in the 49-64th bracket. In team tournaments, ‘Maquoketa Eagles 2’ played well and finished 7th out of 69 teams, also winning a little money. I am very proud. Left to right, Jeff, Visar (Vinny), Mega, Louie and Casey.
Now that pool is over for the season, it’s time to get out that motorcycle!
