The fall and winter pool season is about to begin in Drumheller.
 
The BCA League held its organization meeting Monday night, September 11 at Sandstone Lanes.
 
"We had 26 teams last year, we're normally running between 25 and 30," reported pool league president Ralph Veenhuis. "I believe it is the largest rural town sized pool league in Western Canada."
 
"We have some excellent players, ones like myself, not excellent players, but everybody's having fun," outlined Veenhuis. "We have such a great group of people here that enjoy billiards: they're the ones that keep the show running and keep the league so alive here."
 
The BCA Pool League season gets underway next Tuesday, September 19 at participating lounges around the Drumheller Valley.
 
"They can sign up as a team or as an individual looking to get on a team," noted Veenhuis. "It's totally a social thing, it's an evening out every week that's fairly inexpensive and have a lot of fun and meet a lot of people."
