The 2019 Northwest Memorial Open Tournament was held July 19-21 at the Tacoma Elks Club in Tacoma Washington.

The event was especially well-received this year as the club welcomed Tom Rossman as a special guest. Tom not only instructed several people in the Seattle area while visiting Washington state, but as he always does, Tom put on a magnificent trick shot show at the event.

It certainly was a pleasure to have Tom also participate in the tournament which was won by Jesus Quinonez. Neal Olson came in second place.

The billiard scene in the Pacific Northwest continues to draw great response to its events, and with the addition of special guests like Tom Rossman, adds even more color to the excitement for both players and spectators.
