Lucasi Hybrid 2011 CCS Western 8 Ball Championship Results

Report by Ted Harms – Canadian Cue Sport Productions


The VI Stickmen – the New Team to Beat


The 9h Annual Lucasi Hybrid CCS Western Canadian 8 Ball Championships were held May 25th – 29that the Acadia Recreation Centre in Calgary AB.


The CCS thanks Lucasi Hybrid as our official National Cue Sponsor. Not only do they sponsor all the CCS Championships in Canada, they also sponsor every league that sanctions with the CCS.


Faced with a ‘perfect storm’ of tourney date conflicts this Championship season, the late May dates for the 2011 CCS Westerns were not by choice. Was the turnout down? Yes, but not as much as expected. Was it better than canceling? Absolutely.


We thank all the CCS Western leagues for their continued support of this long running and very successful tournament.


Rest assured that for 2012 and 2013, the CCS Westerns are back to their normal late April dates, with no tourney conflicts or overlap with anyone.


What didn’t change was the level of competition; it was as fierce as ever in all divisions.


We congratulate the winners in all the Divisions who also won CCS paid entries to the CCS 2012 Westerns in Calgary AB or CCS paid trips to represent the West at the CCS 2012 Canadians in Mississauga ON.


The long distance award most definitely went to three players from northern Quebec who, having missed out on the CCS Canadians this year, decided to come to the CCS Westerns!


Here are the highlights:


Mens Team 9Ball

A new event in 2011, in the Finals it was the team Mixed Nuts of Edmonton AB who won out over All About The Ginger from Vancouver Island BC. It turns out that almost the same players duked it out in the 8Ball Finals.


Mens Team 8Ball

In the A Advanced, it was a two-peat. The VI Stickmen from Vancouver Island BC proved last year’s win was no fluke by beating out a very strong team called Mixed Nuts from Edmonton AB in the Finals. Maybe they should have played a 10 Ball ‘rubber match’.


The B Open was won by Thunder from Calgary AB over the up and coming Powell River Kings from Powell River BC and the C Standard was won by the Five Footers (they had to look up to chalk their cues – just kidding) from Calgary AB over the Maniacs from Regina SK.


Womens Team 8Ball

In the A Advanced, it was Vancouver Island again with the Mid Island Girls coming out on top in an extremely close Finals over the Spare Parts team from Calgary AB.


The B Open was won by Here Fishy Fishy (love that team name) from Calgary AB over the Voo Doo Dolls from Burnaby BC.


Mens Singles 9Ball

It was a member of the Mixed Nuts team, Roger Colbert of Edmonton AB who won out over the 2009 8Ball Champ Russ Whittle of Calgary AB.



Mens Singles 8Ball

In the A Advanced, this year’s winner Russ Whittle of Calgary AB says he’s better at 8Ball. No doubt as he has been in the Finals the last 4 years in a row; a remarkable achievement. Who did he beat? It was the well known Nick Kruger of Penticton BC, the reigning 2011 8Ball and 9Ball BC Champ.


The B Open was won by Chris Carroll of Victoria BC over Bob Jeancart of Edmonton AB and the  C Standard was won by Ned Gordon of Kuujjuaq QC over Richard Baker of Calgary AB.


Womens Singles 8Ball

In the A Advanced, it was the big 3 of Andrea Wilson of Victoria BC, Maryann McConnell of Port Alberni BC and Mary Rayner of Calgary AB duking it out as usual. This year it was Maryann first, Mary second and Andrea third. To be continued…


The B Open was won by Karen Rathlou of Nanaimo BC over Angela Arquette of Fort McMurray BC..


Junior Singles 8Ball

The 18&UnderDivision was won by Justin Beavis of Calgary AB ( 3 time 14& Under Champ) over Shaydon Phillips of Calgary AB.


The 14&Under Division was won by Ethan Manywounds of Calgary AB over Tyler Messereau of Calgary AB.


Scotch Doubles 8Ball

In the A Advanced, the team of Larry and Andrea Wilson from Victoria BC who won out over Nick Kruger from Penticton BC and Mayann McConnell of Port Alberni BC. There probably will come a day that Larry and Andrea don’t win this event; it just doesn’t appear to be in the near future.


The B Open was won by the team of Robert Sinclair and Rae Gartner of Whitehorse YT over the team of Dan Johnson of Calgary AB and Sandi Peterson of Jaffray BC.


Once again, the Tourney was super organized and ran super smooth. That’s no surprise when you have Chris Kelly as the Tournament Director and Jeff Phythian as head of the ACS certified Referee Crew. No issues at all; just lots of good pool.
