Bill Yang Wins The Shootout in BC

What a great event to finish off the year.  Bill Yang and Albert Lam had a great battle in the final of the shootout.  It looked like we were going to a blue ball sudden death shootout, but Yang was able to make a black to secure the victory!!  A wonderful night full of snooker, laughs, food, and drink.


Big thanks to Jonathan Sun and the crew at Top 147 that helped us have a great event.  Thanks Jonathan for providing a great spread of food.  Much gratitude to Carmen and Yoko for making sure all of us had a cold drink in hand.


In addition, much gratitude to Rob Johnson and his crew at AAA labs with creating the poster to get the word out to everyone about the event.  Also big thanks to Rob for taking great pictures.


Thanks to Baltej Atwal and Vinit Dassani for their great scorekeeping abilities.  Thank you to Reed Unger, Gary Wallace, and Tommy Ha for the wonderful refereeing work they did.


Thanks to Sam Tonning for his help behind the scenes, and thanks to all the players that showed up and gave it their best.
