2022 Men's & Women's Invitational Report
Congratulations to the American "Red" Teams who ruled the Invitational event this year!
Captains Joe Conway & Nita Swift led their teams to victory with total team scores of 22 and 11 respectively. National "Blue" Team captains were Tom Mayo and Kyril Monts.
On the Men's side, TOP performer for the entire event and his American Team was Bill Swift with a perfect score of 20, never losing a match all weekend! He was followed by his captain Joe Conway, with 19. On the National Team, Howard Couch, Steve Hancharick, and Tom Mayo tied for first on their team with 17 wins each.
Women who tied for first were Terry Fickett, Sharon Manz, Maxine Yeager, and Bobbi Yush for the American Team, and Robin Huey, Diane Litynski and Donna Saunders for the Nationals.
I earlier incorrectly reported that Maxine Yeager was to be Next year's captain for the Americans. However, it will be Eileen Connolly for the Americans and Donna Saunders for the Nationals. While this years American and National Captains Joe Conway & Tom Mayo will go for a re-match and Captain their teams again next year!
Photos of the annual event can be seen by going to the pictures tab on this website, thanks to VBC member Roger Vigrass. As always, we want to thank Roger for his time & expertise in not only taking the photos but editing and posting them for us to see!
The concession per usual was successful in helping us defray the cost of this event. Player Team Jerseys represent our largest expense and our concession net profit including daily sales and cash donations was over $1200 this year which will take a big bite out of our expenses this year. Thanks To Pam MacMann for her endless effort & time to help run the concession. She helps make the concession possible! Thanks also to the MANY of you who donated Cash, Beverages & Food, as well as All Who Made Donations for Snacks And Meal of the Day during the event. It could not happen without YOU ALL!
An EXTRA BIG and SPECIAL thank you goes out to Wendy Lord for her hard work at organizing and overseeing the event from the drafting process all the way to the end, handing out the team photos and plaques.
Others who need recognition for their invaluable contributions are the Teams Coaches, event Score Keepers, and Officials Wayne Anderson and Larry Russo who help make this a really special billiards event for the VBC!
