TAP Las Vegas and 2011 Rally In The Valley

TAP Las Vegas' Team 8 (Chris Adlawan, Gerald Branham, Carlo Butto, Jeremy Head, Lucy Hernandez, Reese Romney and Kelly Seeley) and Magic Q's (Gerald Branham, Jeff Chappell, Gordon Graham, Lucy Hernandez, Kelly Seeley, Norm & Cathy Thibodeau and I) competed in the 15th Annual Rally in the Valley in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Both teams made it to the Championship Board, where they were unfortunately defeated.

All of the players shot well and most noteworthy was our star player, Lucy Hernandez who played on both teams. Lucy won 75% of her matches (3 out of 4) followed closely by Kelly Seeley and Reese Romney. They all shot like super stars.

Kelly Seeley lead the way for the Magic Q's with a win out of the gate in nearly every match. He played on both teams winning 4 out of 6 matches.  Reese Romney dominantly won 2 out of 3 matches, going hill/hill in his only loss of the tournament.

We all had a great time playing pool. We met many pool players from all over the U.S. and Canada, ate a lot of Philly cheese steaks and saw the sites. Many of the pro players and/or trick shot artists were also there competing and just walking around mingling and shopping at the many vendor booths.

Thanks to all of the players who joined us this year!  A very special thanks to the entire corporate staff of TAP League for hosting this great event. You'll always see Loyd Schonter, President and Founder of TAP League, right in the thick of things helping wherever he can. A great deal of work and many hours go into hosting these events for the players and we appreciate their efforts very much..

We're already looking forward to 2012. If you are interested in joining us next year, meeting the pro's and playing lots of pool, bookmark March 15 thru 18, right over St. Patrick's Day. We hear Philly is the place to be on St. Patty's Day.
