Mixed Scotch Doubles Tourney held at the Toadstool on Valentine’s
weekend. The Toadstool Mixed scotch doubles tourney drew 14 teams
and the winning teams stuck around for Prime Rib Dinners. Next Toadstool
tourney is a fundraiser for Emmett Crime Stoppers.
Youth leagues and a traveling league are forming now. Monday Night Scotch Doubles is in full swing with a summer session starting in late May. All leagues are sanctioned through the BCA National.
Southwest Idaho BCA League is operated out of the Toadstool Billiard Cafe. Rob Mathews is the League Director. You may remember a photo of Rob holding a live turkey……?? He has done a fabulous job of organizing & promoting this new league. David and I would like to Thank Rob & his wife Vickie for all their efforts. Rob has been diagnosed with a rare heart condition at only 46 years of age. Our winter league had our pool awards ceremony & banquet Saturday, February 27th complete with Prime Rib, Bourbon Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Salad, & desert served by the Toadstool. Karaoke followed the banquet. Please say a prayer for Rob & Vickie as they left for Salt Lake City, UT Heart hospital the next day. Surgery is considered experimental & will be webcast for this rare procedure on Monday, March 1st. As you can imagine….this surgery is expensive & due to lack of steady work, Rob & Vickie do not have Medical Insurance. Donations can be made to Payette River Community Credit Union, 111 South Hayes Ave, P.O. Box 121, Emmett, ID 83617, (208) 365 – 4151 for the benefit of Hugh “Rob” Mathews.
David & I will be putting on a fundraising 9-ball tournament, dinner, & auction in April with a LOT of help from our little pool playing community….so keep an eye out!
