Pool Tournament 2017 Winners
The final of our Pool Tournament took place Wednesday 22nd February at the Society and we have a winner, coming back from 1 match down to win the tournament and the much coveted K.D. Memorial Trophy.
Together with the trophy, which our winner will keep for the year, they also received a very special gift, which was the pool cue that K.D. owned and played pool with himself. A great man, a great friend, who is sorely missed by us all, especially all of his pool/snooker buddies.
All our runners up received their own K.D. Memorial cup, along with their winners medals.
