UPA Leagues Head East

The United States Professional Poolplayers Association's (UPA) League of Champions has been a hot topic for the past few months growing leaps and bounds throughout the country.  The latest movement sees the league heading east with its newest territories being formed in the great states of New York, Connecticut, and further south dipping down into Arkansas.
Heading up the three new leagues are: Thomas Wimler (CT); Roger Fresco (NY); and Robert Heinz (AR).  Here are a few words from the Connecticut and Arkansas league operators regarding their newest regional acquisitions:
"As a new UPA league operator, I am very excited and look forward to the challenge ahead.  The UPA offers the most accurate handicapping system, highest cash payouts, national ranking, and statistical data to help players improve their game.  The CT-UPA is not only excited for the players in the region to become a part of the UPA in this manner, but dedicated to establishing teams throughout all of Connecticut to ensure more individuals have the opportunity to do so."  Thomas Wimler, League Operator Connecticut  To reach the CT-UPA, visit them on the web at www.connupa.com.  
In Arkansas, League Operator Robert Heinz stated: "Since becoming a league operator for the UPA, I have been very impressed with how simple their system has been to use, the organization of the staff, and the UPA's willingness and efforts to help jump start my league.  We have found that not only is recruiting players for the league easy due to the system in place, but the format is preferred over other league formats currently in play - it is a big hit for us!"
New York is currently in the infancy stages of its league.  More information concerning this region can be found on the UPA website.
Keeping the ball rolling, the October monthly league drawing winner is Brian Stefl.  Brian receives a new Poison AR4 cue from our official cue sponsor - Poison Cues and the Predator Group - and participates in the UPA metro Detroit league system under League Operator Shaun O'Dell.  If you are in the Detroit area, visit the league's website www.upametrodetroit.com.
