Heather Lloyd Wins Second Fast Eddie’s Olhausen 9 Ball Tour Season Finale in a row

Heather Lloyd and Kyu Yi

The Fast Eddie's N. W. Military location in San Antonio saw 15 ladies sign up to participate in the 2007 Season Finale. They were modest in numbers, but rich in talent.

The top “Lady Player of the Year” honor was awarded to Kyu Yi at the player's meeting as Kyu had an incredible year of play. Congratulations.

Top picks for December were, Kyu, Heather Lloyd, Helen Hayes, and Melinda Hinojosa.

Finishing in fourth place with continued good play was Melinda Hinojosa of the Fort Worth area. Melinda Gayle took home $75 for her fine play.

Helen Hayes won the November event in Houston and came ready to play again as is evident by her nice third place finish. Helen took home $165.

The hot seat match was between Kyu and the lovely Heather Lloyd of the Austin area. None are strangers to this situation and both play very well indeed. Kyu captured the hot seat, but Heather rushed over to dispense Helen and return to face Kyu again.

Heather, playing determined pool, defeated Kyu twice to claim the Season Finale Title for the second year in a row and had every right to be quite proud of herself.

Kyu took home $330 for her day's work. She had a very good year.

Heather, for her work took home a well deserved $545. She earned every nickel.

Congratulations to Heather and Kyu and to all the ladies. You make it fun and we appreciate your participation and support.

There are so many people to thank and give credit and there just doesn't seem to be a fair place to start, but let's start with the most important, the players and tour members, themselves. Without your support and participation, none of this exists. It has truly been a pleasure for us at PKL and we thank you.

What more can be said about Olhausen Billiards and Schuler Cues. Your support and generosity is at times overwhelming and so appreciated. Thanks in particularly to Sue Doyle of Olhausen Billiards; life wouldn't be the same without you. Also, to Brian Trimm of Schuler Cues. Both Sue and Brian are very special people. I hope pool players in this region understand what true fiends you are.

Jack Kompan of Mystick Cues, Ron Geyer of The Custom Cue Connection, Robbie Timms and Jeff Ridel of Behind the 8 Ball Cue Sales & Repair, Paul Summerall of S&S cues, Will Roach of Custom Cue Repair, Manny and Gina Guerra of Creative Vinyl Signs, what more can we say? All of you make this so much easier for us and none of you have ever let us down. Thank you so very much.

Another thanks to Trevor of Carolina Cues. Their inclusion will be so special next year and we look forward to working with them.

To all Fast Eddie's locations, their staff and management, YOU have been great and make this fun.

Last, but hardly least, to Fast Eddies ownership and particularly Mark “Big Lew” Lewis. Thank you from all of us. This has been great and will continue to be so.

So long until January 19-20 when we kick off 2008 in San Angelo, Texas at the brand new location. From Paul, Ken, Lewis, and Bill at PKL Promotions thank you and have a safe and happy holiday season.
