At a recent Eagle meeting, a member had asked the question, “How does having pool league make us money?” Well, I would love to show him how we not only can make money for a location, but we also have a giving spirit. Therefore, I am holding a Mr Jill & Mrs Jack Scotch Doubles tournament to benefit Look Good – Feel Better. An organization that helps women with cancer.
So, what is a Mr Jill & Mrs Jack Scotch Doubles Tournament? It is a mixed team (one male and one female) Scotch (every other shot) doubles tournament with a twist. Opposite dress! Yep, that’s right. The men must dress like women and women must dress like men. It is a fun twist on a great game. Think of it this way…it is close enough to Halloween that no one will look twice at the way we are dressed. There will have cash prizes for the top three teams. Plus, a cash prize for the best dressed couple. We will also have:
- 8-Ball on the break contest
- Raffles & 50/50’s
- Other fun games
- $13.50 Steak Dinner (with salad and baked potato)
Tournament entry is $50 per team. Start time is 7pm. You don’t have to play to come out and have fun! We are asking teams to solicit cash donations from sponsors. To reach our goal, we hope that each team will find at least 10 sponsors of $5 or more.
I am going to approach any and all leagues and hope that I can count on our players to build multiple teams. I will limit the field to 32 entries. Below is the entry form. Feel free to contact Jeff Brooks at 941-363-1356 if you have any questions.
