A New Association and New Champions
Now sanctioned and staged by the new CCS – Canadian Cue Sport
Association, the 10th Annual Canadian National 8 Ball
Championships were held January 19 -22nd, 2005 at the DoubleTree
International Plaza Hotel in Toronto, Ontario. With great representation from
coast to coast and entries up in both Singles and Team, the competition was
certainly fierce yet still friendly in our Canadian way. Every event saw new
Champions. We congratulate them all on their hard won Titles which they’ll all
have the opportunity to defend next year, courtesy of Return Trip Added Prizes.
Team and Singles play were divisionalized into A, B, C Groups,
with Cash Prizes and Awards in each, after completion of preliminary double
In the Men’s A – Advanced Singles, Dave Martin of Calgary,
AB avenged his loss in the Finals last year to fellow Calgarian
Steve Cherewyk by defeating Don Brunelle of Chelmsford, ON. He
certainly took no chances as the final match consisted of 5 straight run outs
with an incredible perfect 50-0 score. We think Don would like a rematch. In
the Women’s A – Advanced Singles, Angela Wilson of Victoria, BC
went undefeated besting Carrie Dwyer of Cambridge, ON in the
finals. She now joins her husband Larry Wilson (2002) as a National Singles
Champion! Now if it’s ever possible for couples to play together, that’s a
great Scotch Doubles Team.
In Scotch Doubles, it was all Ontario as Jason
Holdaway and Cathy Lafreniere won out over Louie
Fazekas and Denise Belanger to take the top cash
and the Falcon Cues.
In Men’s A – Advanced Team, perennial
contenders the team Smokin Chicos (Frank Binck, Jordan Katz,
Sean Grossette, Roger Chau, Scott Milne, Turk Unlu and Russ Robinet) of
Windsor, ON got the job done by winning over former VNEA Vegas
Masters Team Champions Team Spain OLA ( Mike Burton, Jeremy
Smith, Pete Sky, Mark Smith and Mark Vinogradov) of Calgary AB.
Confirming once again that it’s never over, Roger Chau completed an amazing
‘there’s no way’ out to win the deciding game. In Women’s A – Advanced Team,
the Break N Run team (Marcie Dunbar, Cindy Bristow, Nicla
Adams, Naomi Williams, Maureen O’Doherty and Lynn Martin) of Toronto, ON,
came out on top in a very close and hotly contested final over the Shark
Shooters team (Diane Boudreault, Lise Julien, Freida Nassas, Marie
St.Germain, Kim Donaldson and Angele Dequanne) from Chelmsford ON.
The Canadian Cue Sport Association wishes to thank the
DoubleTree International Plaza Hotel for hosting us once again, Hi Country

all the Sponsors – Labatt’s Lite, Falcon Cues, Terminator Cues, Chalk & Cue
