Notice is given hereby that the Arbroath and District Pool League (ADPL) will hold an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to discuss and seek resolution on the venue for ADPL Finals Weekend.
The meeting will be at 7.30pm on Thursday 12th March at the British Legion clubrooms.
All members of the ADPL are invited to attend.
The usual 8pm sign in applies. Winning Captain to text or 'phone the score to the Match Secretary upon completion of the match.
Note to Captains: There is no ‘home’ team and both Captains shall write down their first three singles and show the opposing captain simultaneously. Upon completion of the first three singles the same process is followed until the ninth single is completed. Doubles, if required, shall be written one at a time.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish both Captains and their teams all the best for the Final. West Port Bar are gunning to retain the title they won last year, whilst Shotz 3 are aiming to get their first piece of silverware.
A significant number (30) of Arbroath's pool community travelled to Dundee last Saturday to play in the annual Tayside Singles tournament.
Congratulations to Arbroath's David Jack, who won the tournament with a 5-3 win over Dundee's Ryan Tenbruke in the final. David negotiated his way to the final without dropping a frame but found himself quickly 3-0 down in the final itself. He dug deep though and managed to wipe out the deficit and make it 3-3. David then kept the momentum going to get himself over the line and become the Tayside Champion! A thoroughly well-deserved victory after narrowly missing out in each final the previous two years.
Commiserations to Ryan, who also played some great pool throughout the day.
Thanks are extended to event sponsor John McHugh and the Old Mill, Dundee for hosting.

The first trophy of the ADPL Season has been won by Scott MacEwan after defeating Steve Reid by four frames to nil in the Grassroots 2014/15 Event. A strong field of eighty nine entries was received for this event and the champion thoroughly deserved his win.
Each of the quarter final matches required deciding frames, showing the strength of the field. Craig Gowans defeated Kent Mitchell; whilst Scott overcame Christian Watt; Craig Fairweather was ousted by Josh Longmuir and Steve beat Steve Hardwick.
The semi-finals were equally entertaining and Scott found himself 2-0 down to Craig Gowans but managed to dig deep and fight back to win through 3-2. Meanwhile Steve was having a battle with Josh which saw each player fight for that final place. Steve finally took his chance and secured his place.
The final was played by two players who had played superbly all day and showed the grit and determination required to make it to this stage. Unfortunately Steve couldn’t keep up the momentum and the potting he had displayed for most of the day had deserted him in the final. Notwithstanding, Scott played some excellent pool throughout and during the final and ran out a worthy winner 4-0. Thanks are extended to Bobby Din of the Cliffburn Hotel (Sponsor) for his continued support of this event.
