August 15th 2023...

We are happy to announce that Jason Munro has recently joined the OQBA Admin Team!
Please join us in welcoming him to the team and in thanking him for all of the help that he has given us these past weeks! Jason will be performing important functions for us and will provide help which is greatly needed and appreciated! Here's an exerpt from his first message as an official OQBA Team Member:

The work has already begun to plan the best season the ABQO Tour has had yet! We are finalizing the schedule for the 2023-2024 season and it will be posted soon! We are very proud to announce our sponsors from last season have confirmed their involvement and support for another season! We are have also reached out to new sponsors and we hope to add even more to the upcoming season!

Please join us in welcoming him to the team!

Jason Hubert leaves the OQBA and returns to the tables!
August 10th 2023...
In a recent Facebook annoucement, Jason told us that he would be pursuing the game in lieu of the orgnasation... Here's an exerpt from his annoucement:

As a lot of you have noticed, I have been playing a lot more pool lately. I’ve found the passion again to get back into the game that I truly love. When I started organizing tournaments we had 5 people show up to the first one in Aylmer, then Mathieu jumped on board with me and the OQBA took off. I never thought we would have this much success in our tournaments...
As playing in the tournaments while running them has been almost impossible as you can’t fully concentrate on playing, the competitiveness in me was missing. Watching everyone play is amazing but I truly wanted to compete in every tournament along with everyone. I have always been a tournament player and I love the challenge the game brings.
With that said, as Jason Munro will be helping us this year, it should free up the time required for me to play. Game On!

We thank you for your short stay with us, sir, and we wish you the best of luck on your road back to the game! May your aim be true, and your wins plentiful!

April 30th OQBA After Action Report

WOW! More than 15 000$ in prizes this time around!
Consult the images below for detailed payout amounts.

As you already know, this tournament had a turnout of 64 players and many spectators! Incredible! Thank you all so much for coming to our event. Our next one, the finals, will be held on June 11th at Dooly’s Ottawa. We really hope to see you all again in such big numbers, as well as throughout next year’s season!

Please note that in the midst of all the commotion, a clerical mistake was made by the organization which saw some of the prize money moved over to the calcutta side. Therefore, those who cashed in on the calcutta got more than they should have, whilst the performance prizes saw less than they should have. In the spirit of transparency, which the OQBA strongly believes in, we are owning up to this mistake now and will pay those that received less than they should have. Rest assured that we have taken steps so that this mistake will not happen again.

Also note: this will not affect next year’s “saved” amounts as it is coming directly out of our pockets... We know that some of you will not want or care about the extra $, and if that is the case or if we don’t hear back from you before June 11th, we will take the extra money and put it towards the finals: which already has 1 000$ added and possibility for another 1 000$ from sponsors, and the unclaimed amounts!

Please see the list below, and if your name shows up as owed/in red, please contact Mathieu Charlebois or Jason Hubert to get your due.
