Pool players of the Brooke travel team


Joe Giammarino and Dominic Borland

On Monday, March 19, 2018, the Pool Players of The Brooke Travel Team went to Sun City Vistoso (The Views) to play against the Sun City Oro Valley Billiards Club for possession of a personalized Travel Plaque. Our four teams consisted of: Dominic “The Doctor” Borland and Ron “Dblo7” Ridge, Jim “Shooter” Fabio and Karl “English” Knight (Ranch), Fred “The Baker” Dianda and Tom “Blind Squirrel” Barrett and Gary “One Rail” Barlow and Joe “Fast Eddie” Giammarino.

After four hours and 48 games of 1-15 8-Ball partners, the match ended up in a tie at 24 for PPB and 24 for Sun City Vistoso. So, we brought the plaque home because they would have to win the match to take possession of the plaque. The plaque is coming home due to the final game performance by Ron Ridge and Dominic Borland who won the last game to tie the match. We then went to La Hacienda for lunch and a beer or two. Thanks to Dominic and Gary Barlow for setting up this match for the PPB Travel Team.

The Pool Players of The Brooke want to thank Sun City Oro Valley Billiards Club and Jim Baker for hosting this event. You gentleman are a fun, competitive group of pool players who were very gracious. We also discussed another contest in the future. That is a good day! Rack ‘em up!
