1st Annual Consejo Triple Crown
Scotch Doubles 8 Ball
The first ever Consejo Triple Crown was kicked off on Saturday, January 14th with a full day of "Scotch Doubles" Pool. This was a double elimination event. The first round of eight games was played at New Millennium. The Winners remained to finish out the Winners Bracket. Any team that lost joined the Loser's Bracket and moved to Smuggler's Den. The event got underway promptly at 11AM and ran all day, finishing up after 8PM.
Most of the teams consisted of Husband and Wives (or similar arrangements). We tried to get photos of everyone, but missed a few. Here are the shots of the first round.
All the participants gathered at New Millennium before the 11am starting time. Prior to starting the competition, coordinator Tom Gardner explained the rules.
