Rack-M-Up Billiards: Women's Only Tournament Coming to Cornwall!
By: Markus Noé
I am pleased to announce that my home room of Rack-M-Up Billiards will be hosting its first Women's Only tournament October 22. This will be an independently run event by Loreen Toutant. She moved from the GTA to Cornwall a few years back and as been a welcome addition to our scene here. Toutant is a very level headed player who despite starting pool later in life has become one of the better amateur players in the area, and has competed in several Canadian Championships among other big events.
