Sticks out, it’s fi­nal time

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE day that our lo­cal pub sport­sters have been wait­ing for is fast ap­proach­ing.

The Port Dou­glas Pool Com­pe­ti­tion grandfinal day will be held on Sun­day at the Court House Ho­tel, and the com­pe­ti­tion cham­pi­ons will bat­tle it out for the ul­ti­mate brag­ging rights.

Af­ter two weeks of fi­nals, the grand fi­nal­ists were de­cided on Mon­day night.

The B grade grandfinal will kick off at 11am and will see Tav­ern 2 ver­sus Co­cos 2.

Yacht Club will meet with Rat­tle and Hum (for­merly Plan­ta­tion team), for the A grade fi­nal, a match up that has been played out many times over re­cent years.

Pres­i­dent of the com­pe­ti­tion Chris Shiel said it is a cel­e­bra­tion of the past five months of com­pe­ti­tion.

‘‘It will be ex­cit­ing, nerve-rack­ing, and there will be a lot of pres­sure, but all in the name of fun,’’ he said.

‘‘Ev­ery­one that qual­i­fied for fi­nals by play­ing at least five games is wel­come to the party.

‘‘It is a real pub sport; some play­ers are bet­ter af­ter a cou­ple of drinks, while some play worse but it is al­ways a fun day.

‘‘I think in the B grade Tav­ern 2 is in with a good chance as they are all re­ally ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers.

‘‘As for the A grade, I think it will be re­ally close. The teams are pretty equal but Rat­tle has won all three meet­ings this year so they might have a slight ad­van­tage over Yacht Club.

‘‘On be­half of all the com­peti­tors I would like to say a huge thank you to all the venues that par­tic­i­pate, for all that they do, from pro­vid­ing us with a bite to eat and a few beers and for putting up with us ev­ery week.’’

The com­pe­ti­tion kicks off at 11am and will see com­peti­tors so­cial­is­ing over a few beers and en­joy­ing some friendly ban­ter.
