By Tom Bogacki
On Saturday April 24 ABATE of PA members from 5 districts attended the State Pool Tournament held at the Falls Creek, PA F.O.E Eagles, altogether there were 24 shooters that shot in the state tournament. Shooting began at 12:00 PM and the tournament ended around 5:00 PM. The Falls Creek F.O.E. Eagles as always was a great host of this event by ensuring extra pool tables we brought in for the tournament along will making sure everyone felt welcome and enjoyed the day. The Jefferson County Chapter 14 went above and beyond by running the tournament, selling SGOC pull ticket games and 50/50's throughout the day which offset the cost of the tournament expense to the state so a big THANK YOU goes out to Jefferson County Chapter 14 for all that they did to make this year's State Tournament a success.

Taking first place was Rich Best from District 5, second place was Roy Sluk from District 3, third place was Tom Gray from District 5,fourth place was Brian Walters from District 5 and fifth place was Chris Leppo from District 6. The first place winner received a trophy along with $200, the second place winner received a trophy and $150 and the third place winner received a trophy and $75 and the fourth and fifth place winners received special mention. We want to thank all that turned out to cheer the shooters on and we look forward to next year's tournament.
