The third event of the season got underway at Lyons Robin Hood Holiday camp last weekend, and as usual there were plenty of surprise results. Congratulations to JJ Faul who beat Wayne Smith 8 – 6 in the final. JJ as he prefers to be called had a difficult section of the draw to come through as he beat Ows Owen 5 – 1, Joe Stuart 5 – 4, Lee Hughes 6 – 3, Andy Yates 7 – 6, Andy Macdonald 7 – 5, and Wayne Smith in the final 8 – 6. JJ is the South African captain and runs a pool club in Liverpool so he is no stranger when it comes to winning events.
Just to remind players that the top four players in the rankings will qualify for the WPA welsh squad for 2012. The rankings will follow shortly.
Here are the results from the last 16:
Adrian Naggington 6 v 3 Pete Griffiths
Dave Bevan 0 v 6 Colin Healy
JJ Faul 6 v 3 Lee Hughes
Wayne Smith 6 v 2 Sean Lewis
Andy Yates 6 v 5 Joe Dewhurst
Paul Allen 1 v 6 Mike Noden
Deiniol Roberts 6 v 4 Paul Marubbi
Andy Macdonald 6 v 5 Chris Rowlands
Andy Macdonald 3 v 7 Colin Healy
Deiniol Roberts 2 v 7 Wayne Smith
Mike Noden 2 v 7 Adrian Naggington
JJ Faul 7 v 6 Andy Yates
Wayne Smith 7 v 6 Adrian Naggington
Andy Macdonald 5 v 7 JJ Faul
JJ Faul 8 v 6 Wayne Smith
There was a flyer run on the day for early round losers, and Dave Bull beat Delwyn Jones in the Final.
I would like to thank Alan Marshall and Kenny Kyle for setting up the tables and the room along with all the staff at Lyons Robin Hood for their support during the day, and look forward to our return once again in September 2011 for event 4, which looks like being a mini festival of pool on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Look forward to seeing you all at event 4 in Sptember.
The 2nd Catalonia Pool Festival 17th/22nd October 2011.
It’s 8ball pool but not as you know it! This is a pool festival with a difference, yes there are events but unlike other promoters we believe that players require more than just a few competitions.
Since our last festival, we have been working on ways to further improve the experience to aspire to meet the needs of our guests / participants.
So we decided to ask the people who really mattered - the PLAYERS!
1, Can we stay in a Hotel?
We have secured a hotel at reasonable rates, 15 yards from the beach and 80 yards from the playing arena, bar open 24 hours. 61 rooms available(at time of writing 18 gone already) When this is full, another Hotel will be used.
2,Can I arrive before Monday 17th?
Yes it's entirely up to you!
Furthermore we have so far taken 37 bookings 35 of which have booked from Sat 15th/Sat 22nd.
3, Is there a nice town with places to go?
Yes, we will be staying in the holiday town of Salou.
4, What about if I take my kids?
Loads of stuff for them, the Port Adventura is about 15 Min's away, a free bus picks you up near the hotel.
5, Is there any night life?
There are Night clubs on a strip in the town. For the romantics, there are also a host of beautiful restaurants.
6, I hate getting up early to play pool especially with a hangover!
So that families have time to visit places, lay on the beach get over their hangover's during the day, we will not be starting any main event before 3pm, we will be trying to make it 5pm time permitting.
7, I just want to play pool all day, can I?
There will be flyer's on each day, also the pool tables will be on free-play all week.
8, Will it be live streaming?
Yes, we have streaming planned on the main match table.
9, Oct, won't it be cold then?
The average weather is generally between 64f and 70f for October.
10, Last year you guaranteed €10,500, will you be guaranteeing it again or does it depend on entrants?
Not only will we be GUARANTEEING the prize fund, we are actually INCREASING it to €15,000!
There will be €7,000 Euros up for grabs in the Open event.
A few extra things what we have planned to keep you entertained. There will be a welcome party night on the Sunday with music, also a going home party after the presentation on the Friday night.
The Sangria cup, a 5 a side football comp played on the beach between Countries.
A 100 yoyo a person comp for serious pool players, Challenge tables. A trip to the Nou camp, wine tasting etc etc.
We think we have everything covered.....but if you have any ideas that might enhance this Festival for the players, all suggestions will be appreciated.
As we have said before, this is a holiday for everyone, not just the pool player.
Our aim is to look after everybody’s needs so that they have a truly great experience.
