UPA Pro Tour Championship ready to begin

Bill Alden and "Mad" Max Eberle won the Pro-Am

The UPA Pro Tour Championship hosted by the Bicycle Club Casino in Bell Gardens, CA kicked off with a "Meet the Players" party Tuesday night. The Casino treated sponsors and enthusiasts to an exclusive buffet spread, trick shot show, and Pro-Am scotch doubles event.

Nick Varner, Jeremy Jones, and Efren Reyes delighted the crowd, each demonstrating a couple of their favorite trick shots; then magician and world trick shot champion Chef Anton kicked the party up a notch with more trick shots and an impression of Johnny Archer that wont soon be forgotten!

"Mad" Max Eberle and his scotch partner Bill Alden of Shooters Billiards won the Pro-Am event, while the main event matches start Wednesday morning at 10 am.
