The Comox Valley Pool League wrapped up their Summer Singles 8 Ball League at the Avalanche Bar & Grill on July 27.

“This season we had 35 players come out and compete for 12 weeks,” said organizer Rose Kantor. “The interest to learn the game has grown in the Valley and the league is attracting more players from around the Valley as well as Campbell River.”

To qualify for playoffs each player had to play a minimum of eight weeks. Twenty-five players competed in a double elimination tournament to decide the best pool players in the Valley, and when the chalk dust cleared the top four league winners were 1st Phil Asturi, 2nd Kevin Kane, 3rd Dave Young and 4th David Wetmore.

“Once the tournament got going the competition was fierce but friendly,” Kantor said. “The excitement was high and everyone brought their best game to the table.” Finishing in fourth place was Kris Mynott, third place went to Dale Cerny and in the finals we had our top two league winners Phil Asturi and Kevin Kane.

“Kevin was the A side winner and Phil was the B side winner. Kevin showed no mercy and took out Phil three games straight which put Phil in second place and crowned Kevin our 2011  Summer Singles 8 Ball champion,” Kantor said.

“In the Comox Valley Pool League every player walks away a winner with prizes right to last place. We would like to thank the Avalanche Bar & Grill and Labatt’s Brewers for all their sponsorship to help make our league so successful.”

This year Labbatt’s sponsored a leather reclining chair and many other prizes. Each player with eight weeks of league play in had their name entered into a draw and Kantor won the chair. “I really thank Danielle, the waitress at the Avalanche, for pulling my name,” Kantor said.

“I work really hard to build a successful league for all skill levels of play and winning the chair is definitely a nice bonus. Thank you Labatt’s!”

With summer league over it’s time to get ready for the winter teams divisions. “Keep your eyes open for posters at local venues and around town,” said Kantor. “Sept. 7 is our first general meeting followed by a double knockout tournament, and league play starts Sept. 14.”
