Published on December 21, 2015.

Vicki and Bob PaskiIn honor of the WPBA's 40th Anniversary, Charter Member Vicki Paski, and husband Bob, have generously donated a cash entry fee ($500) to the winner of the upcoming 2016 Regional Tour Championship to be held January 7th-10th, 2016, at Zingales Billiards in Tallahassee, Florida. It was Mrs. Paski who gave rise to the Regional Tour System when she introduced the idea of implementing WPBA Chapters across the United States in the form of "Regional Tours", to serve and develop organized billiard competition for women players. "We think it's fun for the last charter member to help out the newest champion!" says Paski. In addition to the Paski's contribution, the winner also receives an invite to all 2016 WPBA Pro Events. On behalf of the entire membership, the WPBA would like to thank Bob and Vicki for their continued support and generosity.
