Held at the Rendezvous Lounge
The 2012 Captain Appreciation Luncheon & Pool Tournament was a great success thanks to Ted Gill – The Rendezvous Lounge, Don Dixon – Hungry Howies, and all the captains that participated. This year, Ted Gill and The Rendezvous Lounge surprised us with a 50 inch plasma tv. The TV was raffled off for the captain’s after the pool tournament.
Ted Gill has been a big supporter of the Monday Night Sarasota Pool League since purchasing the Rendezvous Lounge 5 years ago. His support has helped keep our league better than the rest!
Captain’s Pool Tournament
The pool tournament was a battle from the start. Harry Bell, from Shoot to Thrill, beat multiple captains to take control of the winners bracket. Bob Newcomer, from 8-Ball Hustlers, had a late start, but fought through the top bracket only to be sent to the losers side after a loss to Harry in the last match on the winners side.
Jack Birkner, from Cobras, defeated Jeff Brooks, from Eagle 1, in the first round of the tournament. Jeff made his way through the losers bracket to face Harry in the championship games. In the end, Harry won the 2012 Captain’s Pool Tournament.
The captains were also excited to welcome back Barron Moran, from Pool Cats. Barron made his first appearance at a league event since being released from the hospital.

50 Inch Plasma TV Captain’s Raffle
As previously mentioned, Ted Gill and the Rendezvous Lounge donated a 50 Inch Plasma TV for a Captain only raffle. Harry Bell, from Shoot to Thrill, showed he had as much luck in the drawing as he had skill on the pool table and won the TV.
