Summer Break for the Paws Pool Tournament

Saturday, June 12th, 2021

This event can only be described as Small, Fun and FABULOUS! We knew going in for our first ever summer tourney that we were competing with a lot of events, and let's face it, summer itself! We had 16 entrants for 8 teams of 9Ball. It may have been a shorter day, but definitely not shorter on fun. We all had our share of it! Thanks to our Sponsors once again who came through and provided the awesome place prizes and raffles. Thanks to the folks who played, and who came out and watched. Thanks to the folks at TJ's who once again let us play in their Fun Center! A Special Thanks to the folks who helped put the tournament on and helped out at the tournament! The McCook Humane Society Board Members (Andrea O'Dea, Levina Fritsche and Joyce Anderson). Chad Elson for the help with the Auction and doing an awesome job once again! Jay & Lorie Prestes for the help at the tournament. Ernie Denbo and Gina Kendall for your help. Because of all of you and everyone who helped out, we were able to bring in $1025! Wow!
And our winners of the "Summer Break for the Paws" Pool Tournament are:

1st Place: Ernie Denbo and Glenn Morgan winning prizes donated by Cobblestone Inn & Suites, Walmart SuperCenter of McCook and Lopez Service & Repair.
