There will be eight teams competing in a nine-ball tournament, with the winners going
for a $500 cash prize and entry into the Logan County tournament in June.
The winner of the Logan County
tournament will then be on the road to
Las Vegas for an American Poolplayers Association national tournament. The
county will be represented by a nine-ball team as well as an eight-ball team.
The APA is the world's largest pool league, with over 265,000 members. In 2010
the league's summer tournament in Las Vegas was classified by Guinness World
Records as the largest pool tournament in the world.
