Covered Bridge Community to host Dominion 8-Ball Championships in May

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 members in Hartland are working hard to prepare for a national event in May. 

The Hartland Legion branch will host the Dominion 8-Ball Championships on May 24, 25 and 26. 

“There’s a lot of planning ahead,” said Carla Orser, co-chair of the event with Bobby Allison. 

Orser said the branch originally applied to host the popular Legion event five years ago. 

The event organizers began preparing for the tournament in November. 

Branch president Gary Bovard said Harland Legion members are excited to welcome players from across Canada to the Covered Bridge Community. 

He said the event will welcome players from 12 provinces and territories. 

Hartland Mayor Tracey DeMerchant said the town council and staff are entirely on board with the branch’s efforts. 

“We will support the tournament in any way we can,” she said. “We always want more people to discover Hartland.” 

DeMerchant praised Hartland Legion members’ long-running contributions to the broader Hartland community.

“We appreciate what the Legion does to support the town,” she said. 

Bovard said Hartland Legion members are excited to host the national event.
