Shooting for Vegas

Friday, May 31st

S. BURLINGTON, Vt. - Many folks would probably have liked to spend today at the pool. Well tonight, about 90 participants on 16 teams gathered at Van Phan Sports in South Burlington to play pool.

They were there for the start of the second annual tournament set up by world class pool player Liz Ford. Ford has created an amateur league in Vermont with the goal of growing the popularity of the sport here in the Green Mountain State.

Partnering with the American Poolplayers Association, this tournament, and the league, features a handicapping system that gives players of all ability levels an equal chance of winning. The winners of this weekend's event will earn a trip to Las Vegas to compete in the APA National Team Championships August 15th-24th.
