BCA Canadian 8-ball Championships 2004

“Back for More” and “The Rock” Repeat in Toronto

Familiar names dominated the top divisions at the 9th Annual BCA Canadian 8-Ball Championships, conducted January 7-10, 2004, at the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel in Toronto, ON. Bonnie Plowman (Calgary, AB) added a fourth national singles title to her prize chest (’99, ’00 and ’02) by out pointing Cathy LaFreniere (Fergus, ON) in the finals of the Women’s “A” division. Bonnie’s team, “Back for More”, aptly named and featuring teammates Bev Ashton, Joanne Ashton, Collyne Savage, Amanda Lofvendahl and Stephanie Radmore defended their 2003 Women’s “A” division title by turning back Toronto’s “Break-N-Run”. The Men’s “A” team title was also successfully defended by Toronto’s “The Rock”, featuring teammates Vince McIntyre, Al Porter, Chris Woods, Al Logan, Dale Sweet and Joe Lawrence; although the team had to crossover from the “B” side and eclipse Toronto’s “The Road Warriors” in two matches to reclaim their crown.

In Scotch Doubles, Vince McIntyre (from “The Rock”) and Marcie Dunbar (from “Break-N-Run”) proved to be a potent combination in outgunning the field for the title and taking out Toronto’s Lynn Martin and Rob Brandenburg in the finals.

With the A-B-C category format filtering singles and teams down to other divisions after Day 1 of each competition, Toronto’s Rob Brandenburg outlasted Sean Fleming (St. John’s, NF) for the Men’s “B” singles crown; two Ontarians – Bev Littler and Tammy Hoy – vied for the Women’s “B” singles title, with Hoy the victor; and Ontario again dominated the Men’s “C” singles competition with Chris Duke defeating Ken Botham. Cambridge, Ontario’s “Sharp Shooters” (Jason Holdaway, Rick Hutchings, Scott Yankee, Neil Mills and Phil Fraser) claimed the Men’s “B” team victory; “Wild Eights” (also from Cambridge, ON) featuring Carrie Dwyer, Darlene Gardiner, Catherine Fliestra, Catherine Frei and Joanna Palmer-Smith emerged triumphant over the Women’s “B” team competition; and Windsor, Ontario’s “Shakin & Stirred” (Andre Bilek, Roger Bellina, Derek Mereszak, Harvey Shognosh, Don Charette, Turk Unlu and Andy Brownlie) bested the Men’s “C” team field.

The Billiard Congress of America appreciates the production efforts of Canadian Cue Sport Productions and High Country Promotions, provider of the sixty Valley Cougar tables; and the sponsorship of Falcon Cues, Smart Start Billiard School, Budweiser and the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel.
