The Sixth Annual Pool
tournament was held on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010 at 7 PM at
Andy's Pub near 38th and Peach
This event was open to
all ECBA members, along with their friends and/or significant others.
This event is a fund-raiser for Northwestern Legal Services with
proceeds benefiting the indigent of our community.
We which to thank the Erie County Bar Association for it's sponsorship
each year and
donation of the event's entry fees to NWLS
who participate and provide support to
our mission of providing
free legal aid in civil cases to low-income individuals and
families who cannot afford to hire an attorney on their own.
Pool Format: It’s called “whistle-stop” eight ball,
and each game is limited to 15 minutes. Standard eight ball rules
apply, and the format keeps things moving. Everyone is playing
pool, and not waiting around for some teams to finish their games before
the next round begins.
Open Division - All teams compete for the prestigious
"Wooden Triangle", emblematic of proficiency in the pool hall and
evidence of a misspent youth.
Law Office Challenge: This year we
invite all law offices (both large and small) to field a team in the
tournament. We will crown a law office champion in addition to the
winners of the open division. It's an opportunity to see who the
real (pool) "sharks" are among the law offices and legal teams in town.
The Cost: The registration fee is
$20. per person ($40 per team). You can either sign up as a team,
or individually and we'll find you a partner. Law office teams,
though, must have co-workers from the same office. Your fee covers
all of the pool, along with soft drinks and pizza. Most
importantly, all proceeds benefit legal aid for the low income residents
of Erie County.
