Get ready for 8-ball

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

WITH a month to go un­til the Port Dou­glas Pool Com­pe­ti­tion kicks off, now is the time to reg­is­ter your in­ter­est and get your team into the best com­pe­ti­tion around.

The Mon­day night friendly com­pe­ti­tion sees teams from all around Port Dou­glas’s favourite wa­ter­ing holes take to the ta­bles with a lot of ban­ter and fun, and bat­tle it out over the length of the sea­son to make it to the fi­nals and be crowned pool cham­pi­ons and gain brag­ging rights.

Pres­i­dent of the pool com­pe­ti­tion Chris Shiel en­cour­ages groups or in­di­vid­u­als to con­tact him as soon as pos­si­ble.

‘‘We are all re­ally ex­cited for the new sea­son to start,’’ he said.

‘‘If any­one wants to form or join a team but are strug- gling to find a venue, give me a call, I may be able to help find some­where.

‘‘ Cur­rent cap­tains are asked to get their teams sorted, around eight people is ideal, and let me know.

‘‘We aim to start mid to late March.’’

A cou­ple of last years teams will be look­ing for a new home af­ter the clo­sure of their venue last year, but with no short sup­ply of pool ta­bles around town, there is plenty of room for ev­ery­one.

Con­tact Chris Shiel on 0408 409 981 as soon as pos­si­ble so that work on sea­son draw can be­gin.
