The MASH VNEA (Valley National 8-Ball Association) pool league had another successful year, with 20 teams playing out of venues such as Whiskey Nights, Town Pump, Royal Hotel, Royal Canadian Legion and Donalda Hotel.

Regular-season play began last October and continued through March 6, with the Social Bo’s Falcons coming out victorious.

Other awards were handed out:

Top shooter — Gerd Liebe.

Most consecutive wins overall — Chris Roberts.

Top female shooter — Christine Morris.

“League ambassador” (dedicated representative) — Christine Morris.

Most improved team — The Brews & Cues.

The final tournament weekend was March 22-24. It was an eventful weekend, with tons of pool-playing and sportsmanship.

All 20 teams battled in a double-elimination tournament, followed by a 12-team Sportsman tournament.

The initial double-elimination tournament was a close race, coming down to the last round in the second match, with first place going to the Donalda Wild Bunch and second place going to the Dagga Kings.

The Sportsman tournament was exactly that, making a decision to have two first-place finishers. Both Legion Errors and Legion Warriors chose camaraderie over a sole victor.

The league extends thanks to all who assisted with running the league and the tournament.

Thanks to John’s Vending for another great year and a phenomenal tournament set-up.

Biggest thanks goes to the players, without whom there wouldn’t be a league.

We hope to see all the old faces — and maybe also some new faces — for the 2013-14 season.
