2nd Annual BCA Western Canadian 8-ball Championships 2004


Report by Ted Harms - Canadian Cue Sport Productions

From May 6 – 9th, 2004, over 900 players from all the Western Provinces and Territories gathered at the Acadia Recreation Centre in Calgary, Alberta for the 2nd Annual BCA Western Canadian Championships. With entries way up in nearly every event, they came to 190 in Singles, 48 in Scotch Doubles and 127 in Team play. $1800 was added to the Women’s events and $6000 for the new Western Champions in each event to compete at the 2005 CCS – Canadian Cue Sport Association Nationals in Toronto next January.

Another great turnout and truly a Western Championship! Entries were up 50% overall with 46 different cities and towns represented from every corner of Western Canada. With double the tables to play on (80), a smoke free facility, a great job done by the Tournament Director - Chris Kelly, and lots of new competition, all made for another very fun and exciting tournament.

Team and Singles play was divisionalized into A,B,C groups with cash prizes and awards in each after completion of preliminary double knockout brackets.

In the Men’s A Team event, the Greene Machine of Calgary got the most `green’ and the title by going undefeated against The Magoos – Kamloops, All About the Box – Calgary, Graham’s Gavels – Calgary and twice defeating Rosario’s Mixed Nuts from Edmonton. In the Women’s A Team event, Edmonton got their revenge with the Q Club Still Waiting team defeating the perennial champions from Calgary called Back For More.

In the Men’s A Singles event, Larry Wilson from Victoria, after losing his very first match against Nick Kruger – Calgary, successfully defended his title by winning over Doug Petrie- Edmonton, Randy Bagot – Winnipeg, Al Greenlee – Calgary, Garey Kirkland – Calgary, Darrell Stephens – Calgary, Brad Poorman – Regina, Chad Sens – Regina, Jody Thornton – Medicine Hat and finally Nick Kruger from Calgary in the re-match. That’s doing it the hard way! In the Women’s A Singles event, Jana Montour of Edmonton went undefeated against Julie Moosewaypayo – Calgary, Andrea Wilson – Victoria, Mona Remedios – Edmonton, and finally the well known Joanne Ashton of Calgary to snag the title.

In the ever popular Scotch Doubles event, the team of Josh Silva and Bev Ashton from Calgary won out over Tony Young and Twila Warwarick from Edmonton to win the Falcon cues and top cash.
