Cape Coral, Florida
Tournament action at Veterans Park, 4140 Coronado Blvd. Photos courtesy of Michael Grasser. Before the event kicked off, the directors got everybody together (18 teams, perhaps 80 players) to talk about the rules that would be in effect. Players got to weigh in on their preferences through the democratic process and then a majority vote decided the issue.

Angelo Marandola of Montreal rolls. Note the clock-faced scoreboard in the background. Yes, those are angle boards in the corners, but this tourney's rules declared a ball hitting the back without first striking another ball was dead.
George Furlan raffas. George lives in Cape Coral and is the main tournament organizer.
Frank DeLuca of Chicago, IL rolls.
