  Erlend Barlas Regional Championships
by: FlyingScotsman, 20-11-2017 10:47 AM (#1)

Erlend Barlas Region Championships.

Well since my wee mate has let it out the bag so to speak, I better let everyone know now.

After talking to Mike Keddie over the weekend and he has agreed to host and sponsor the Erlend Barlas Region Championships, named after our longest serving Treasurer who passed away a few years ago.

The format follows the Supers but will be a one day event, held on Sunday the 29th July 2018.

Now I know that this is a long way off but as you will see , a lot of people will be part of selecting the teams along with players may be on holiday at that time, getting polo tops, arranging friendlies, get together etc, so I want to give as much notice to all Regions as I can.

Some will come back and say why am I not involved but I have had to look at the history of pool in Scotland along with each area and try my best to give all a chance, however there may be one or two that turn down the invite to play and with that I donít mean players, I mean regions, if that happens then I will have to find replacements.

So what is the event, its a 15 person team event, with 8 Regions throughout Scotland? playing, the ? mark is there for a reason and its not for Berwick.

Round robin race to 8, once there match stops.
After all the group stages are finished, top 4 play against each other in semiís with the top playing the fourth place team, race to 11 in semiís.
Final race to 15, with the winners getting 3.5K and Runners up getting 1.5k.
Both teams get medals along with the Erland Barlas trophy for the winning team to keep for a year.

Entry fee is £500 with Styx putting 1k towards the prize fund along with paying the staff wages for the day.

Now then Regions, you are asking, well here they are;

Lanarkshire [old area]
Strathclyde [old area]

I know that a number of people will start asking questions right away about where is my league in this and I will answer them in due course but each league can be involved, subject to the selection committee agreeing and that is where perhaps a problem will happen, it is for that reason I will select one person from each Region to take control and ask them to select who they wish from that Region to help them.

Iím hoping that all teams will be kitted out great, that we all have a fantastic event and everyone enjoys themselves but lets not kid ourselves, this event will be to prove who is the best Region for pool in Scotland in 2018 along with a fantastic prize fund but always remember its named after one great guy who served the SPA for over 25 years and would love this named after him.

I have asked certain people/players to be the lead person in selecting the players for this event, they to can also select others to help them but the final decision on who gets selected will be down to them.

Lanarkshire- Robert Edment
Strathclyde - Paul Corrigan
Central - Santa
Highlands - Gavin Phillips
Lothian/East - Stuart Weeks
Tayside/ north - Michael Bastow
Fife - Myself -Mike Keddie
Ayrshire/ South - Billy Henderson Paul Harkness

After the deadline for payment has passed and when the payments have been collated to ensure everyone has paid. I'd estimate tomorrow (Monday) evening.
