Results From the Canadian Amateur Championships.

By: Markus Noé

Last week from June 24-28 the Canadian Amateur Championships were held at Fairville Shooters, in Saint John New Brunswick . There were five events that took place during this time which included Men's 8 and 9 Ball, Women's 8 and 9 Ball along with a single Junior event.

Throughout the five divisions there was a total of 155 entries and over $28,000 in cash prizes. Below are the results and names of this years Canadian Amateur Champions. As you can see most of these tournaments were well attended outside the Junior event which only saw four participants. From my count there were 5 provinces represented this year. Most of the participants were from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a few from Ontario, P.E.I and Newfoundland.

EARLY STREAM NUMBERS - 12,319 unique views and nearly 130,000 minutes watched

As many of you know there is a shift a top the C.B.S.A with both the Vice President and President leaving the association. With the stream numbers above it is obvious that there is a lot of interest in Canadian pool, and this appears to be an appropriate time as any to bring the association to new heights and have every Province and Territory represented.  I invite anyone who wishes to help make this possible to contact the C.B.S.A and see how you can help, whether that his running a local qualifier or running for a board position.
