The Oak Ridge Senior Center sponsored the first annual Bill Attkisson Memorial 8-Ball Tournament on Friday, April 24th. The tournament was held in memory of longtime senior center participant and volunteer Bill Attkisson who passed away earlier this year. Bill was an avid pool player and golfer and will be missed by both his family and his friends at the senior center. 

Winning the tournament was Harold Stinnett, 2nd place was Dave Angel, and coming in 3rd was Doug Headrick. Jack Ballew won the grand prize drawing for an 18 oz. Star pool cue. Proceeds from the tournament as well as a matching donation from Bill’s family will be put toward the purchase of a pickleball set for the senior center.
