On Thursday, May 05, 2016, the Owasso Community Center hosted a senior pool tournament for the Four State Region Pool Association. This was one of five tournaments Owasso hosts for the association in 2016. This is a very unique group. The association consists of Senior Centers in Miami, Grove, Joplin, MO, Bentonville, AR, Neosho, MO and Owasso. It is doubtful there is anything like it elsewhere in the country. A tournament is held each week at one of the participating centers. Players must be a minimum of 60 years of age. The tournament is open to both men and women.
This week’s tournament drew 36 entries. Play began at 9:00 AM and ended at 5:00 PM. There were players from Owasso, Broken Arrow, Coweta, Vinita, Collinsville, Tulsa, Welch, OK, Blue Jacket, OK, and Joplin MO. The results were left to right, first place, Chester McDonald; second place, Sylvester Spurgeon and third place, Cec Jones.
