Lucasi Hybrid 2012 CCS Western 8/9 Ball Championship Results

Report by Ted Harms – Canadian Cue Sport Productions                          May 25, 2012


Back On Track


The 10h Annual Lucasi Hybrid 2012 CCS Western 8/9 Ball Championships were held April 25th to 29that the Acadia Rec 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 CCS league.


Back to our normal dates in late April, it was great seeing the turnout bounce back to 60+ teams along with new representation from leagues in Canmore, Cranbrook, Grande Prairie, Okotoks and St. Paul. Next year, we think it will be 80+.


The long distance award definitely goes to 3 players from the Dooly’s Topsail Road League in St. Johns NL who combined the Westerns with a wedding outside Calgary.


Having been very well received at the CCS 2012 BC Championships in Penticton, the CCS arranged for Paul Potier (BC’s most accomplished pool player, instructor and entertainer) to also be at the Westerns on the Friday and Saturday.  


The Molsons 8Ball League from Regina SK have been a big supporter of the Westerns from day one. This year, they had their best showing ever by claiming 3 titlesMens Open 8Ball Team (CHODA), Mens Standard 8Ball Team (G Men) and Mens Standard 8Ball Singles (John Fazakas). Well done guys.


We congratulate all the winners in all Events who also won CCS added paid entries to the CCS 2013 Westerns in Calgary AB or CCS added paid trips to represent the West at the CCS 2013 Canadians in Mississauga ON.

·         Hi Country Promotions of Fort Collins, Colorado for the 40 Valley Tables,

In the Finals, it was Russ Whittle from Calgary AB looking for the trifecta, having already won the 2012 BC’s and the 2012 Canadians . Not to be. The new Champ is Jonathan Dela Cruz , an up and coming player also from Calgary, who bested everyone and took the Westerns title.


Mens Singles 8Ball

In the A Advanced, this year’s Champ, Mike Aboudaher of Calgary AB took a few years off, but he’s back playing and playing great. His opponent was Garey Kirkland, one of the toughest players to beat in Calgary (or anywhere he’s playing) for the last 20 years.
