The Stettler Pool League wrapped up their season this weekend with a three-day tournament held at Stettler Community Hall.
The big winners of the weekend were the Falcons, who took home the A Division victory along with a $1,500 cash prize. The Falcons team is made up of Stettler locals Doug Anderson, Chase Cyr, Glen Fisher, Chris Garez and Anthony Jackson.
The runners up this year were the Dagga Kings, while team Big Slice finished third.
The Stettler Pool League is a competitive pool league that runs from November to March every year.
Teams and individuals compete in games of 8-ball pool, which is the style of pool most commonly played at bars and pool halls.
The league comprises players of all levels, from beginners to professionals.
“There are some players in the league that play professionally and go around to tournaments all over Alberta,” explained League President John Leard.
Teams are made up of four to six players, and compete in either the A Division or the less competitive Sportsman Division.
This year’s winners of the Sportsman Division were the Bus Boys.
“Each team has one of the local pubs as their home venue and then they travel around to the other venues and play the other teams,” said Leard.
Games take place every Wednesday at pubs around Stettler.
In addition to the team competition, the league also hosts a singles category.
Chase Cyr was a double winner this year; in addition to being a member of the winning Falcons team, he was also the winner of the singles A Division.
In the singles B Division, the winner was Pat Snowden, while the winner of the singles C Division was Greg LaRose.
