Western BCAs 11th annual regional 8-ball tournament tops $73,825 payout, $29,000 added, 943 players

Players from all around Oregon, Washington and Idaho attended what is undisputedly the best event in the Northwest. Western BCAs 11th annual regional 8-ball tournament could be the biggest regional amateur league tournament in the country. Many are proud of that. The staff and board members gave the players what they wanted: a grand celebration, a good experience filled with excitement, competition and rewards for their accomplishments with lots of opportunities for good, clean pool.

The biggest buzz was that the Masters team division was 110 percent larger. New this year was that Masters could only play in the Master's team event. This trial worked out great as the Master team entries doubled. In addition, a whopping $29,000 added to the prize money. Chinook Winds Casino Resort was elated to see us again and they committed $10,000 of the $29,000. BCA Pool League's Sanctioned Tournament Added Money Program added $2,000, and Western BCA added the balance. This money was distributed to all events, not just the Master divisions. The event was full with 943 members in attendance.
