“The Americas Cup”
We’ve had the first “Continental Challenge”
Played over the format of ‘long up’
Promoted and run by “World Billiards Limited”
It was called “The Americas Cup”.
Hosted by the “Winnipeg Veterans League”
The “Manitoba Club” holding the event
With players from numerous countries
From the 4 corners to Canada they went.
With Mike Russell the eventual champion
Recording a 397, the highest break
Beating Martin Goodwill in the final
The “Challenge Cup” title to take.
Preceded by “The Vimy Ridge Open”
Played over the timed format
With Rob Hall winning the main event
And two Canadians contesting the Plate.
We look forward to their second Challenge event
In spring of two thousand and fifteen
So make a date in your Billiards event diaries
And in Manitoba you’ll all be seen.
