- The Southern Foosball Program presented its 2004 Tennessee State Championships during the weekend of March 26th – 28th. A total of 66 players participated in a weekend of events where top players from all over the region battled it out for more that $5,000 cash and another year of bragging rights.
A couple of the nations top competitors made the trip down south to participate, Terry Moore, of Illinois, and Billy Pappas, of Massachusetts, together they claimed the open and main event titles. Billy won the winners bracket of open singles but was eventually double-defeated by “big Terry Moore” during the finals. Rick Macias, of North Carolina, finished 3rd place.
Terry & Billy teamed together for the open doubles event and won the title defeating a last minute team-up and entry, myself, Rodney Jenkins, and local player Todd Brooks. I wasn’t planning on participating in the tournament and I wanted to solely concentrate on coordinating the events, but since several elite players from up north made the long trip down south to participate I decided to try and provide them with as much southern hospitality as available. Rick Macias, along with Marty Fagan, of Jonesborough, TN., finished 3rd place.
Marty Fagan and team mate, Jesse Maynard of Bristol, TN., were able to defend their 2003 title by claiming the 2004 Semi Pro Doubles title defeating a very hot Terry Hedges & Eddie Hutson in the finals.
Terry Hedges, of Nashville, TN., is well known for his illusive magical talents and has now gathered much respect for his foosball talents as he was able to capture both rookie titles, rookie singles and rookie doubles. The rookie doubles title is a defending title for Terry as he also won the event is 2003, but this year teamed with local player Eddie Hutson. As mentioned above, the pair put forth a bold performance during semi pro doubles as well, finishing a very respectable 2nd place.
Mississippi’s Donald Wilson was “Mr. Semi Pro Singles Player” at the tournament as he claimed the semi pro singles title to go along with a 4th place finish and top semi pro in open singles.
I’d like to congratulate, and thank, all that participated during the Tennessee State Championships. The host facility, “BW’s Rack Room”, was very impressed with the foosball players as a group, and has offered open doors for any of the Programs future events in Chattanooga. Thank you!
Until next time, keep on foosin, and look for future events presented by the Program posted on the web at: southerfoosball.com. Complete results are included at: [RESULTS]. ..... Rodney Jenkins
- The Southern Foosball Program presented it's Tennessee State Championships during this past weekend of March 1st 2003. Players from all-around the region gathered in Chattanooga, Tennessee for this outstanding weekend of foosball tournament competition. The host facility was "Breakers Saloon" which turned out to be an awesome place for a foosball tournament, the Program will likely return for additional events in the future. During the weekend, eleven championship titles were earned along with over $4,000 in cash and prizes. A total of 56 players participated in the weekend of events where players like James Porter, Cindy Head, & Scott Cook proved their mightiness.
James Porter, of Huntsville, Alabama, had a great weekend winning rookie singles & doubles--he then came very close to winning semi pro doubles as well. James' partner for the rookie doubles event was none other than Nashville's fooser & "magician practitioner", Terry Hedges. Terry entertained the players with his card tricks and magical skills during the weekend. Meanwhile, on the other side of the tournament room, Cindy Head, of Birmingham, Alabama, was performing some magic of her own. She rose to the top-of-the-winners position of the open singles chart after defeating Rick Macias and then Steve Dodgen. She then held off the efforts of Scott Cook in the finals to claim the singles main event title. Scott Cook continued and eventually claimed the remaining main event titles, open doubles & open mixed doubles. Scott is presently living in Atlanta; his partners were fellow Georgia players Chris Weaver & Dawn Foust. Congratulations to these players as well as all others earning titles during the event, they are completely listed at: TNstate03.
Until next time, good luck keeping your rods slick and straight!

The event is scheduled for the weekend of March 1st with specialty events beginning on Friday evening continuing on Saturday with the main events and then wrapping up on Sunday evening with the finals. Breakers Saloon is the City's newest and hottest place to be for billiards/restaurant/night club/dance hall entertainment, and will be serving as the host location for this tournament. "Breakers" has allot going on and players will no-doubt enjoy the very nice and spacious atmosphere along with the many other great features the location has to offer. The locals are very excited about the tournament and would like to invite anyone interested to come out and participate.

- In Chattanooga Tennessee during this past weekend Aaron Hartline and Bundy's Billiards jointly presented a "Foosbash" foosball tournament. I attended this event and had a great time. I enjoyed being there as a player and not the tournament promoter for a change. There was a good turn-out of players for the event. Hopefully, Aaron & Bundy's will host additional tournaments in the future.
I'm not sure about all the results, perhaps they will post them in the foos-newsgroup??? Here are some results that I remember:
During open singles Frank Goff dip-defeated Steve Dodgen in the final while Rick Petro finished 3rd place.
During open doubles Billy Caylor and myself (Rodney Jenkins) defeated Chris Folsom and Mickey Munger in the final. Steve Dodgen & Ken Williams finished 3rd place while Frank Goff & Kathy Hilts finished fourth.
During Semi Pro Doubles, local ex-pro Todd Brooks won 1st place teamed with an also local Mike Guffey. They defeated David Phillips and Mark Witt.
Sorry, that's all I can remember at this time. If someone supplies me with additional results I will try and post them for you.
It's my intention to include submitted information that will help any persons interested in finding foosball activity in areas scattered throughout the Southeastern USA. If you know of places where coordinated efforts have established an event, whether it's every-week, bi-weekly, or even monthly, if it's presented in sportsmanlike fashion and if it's open to anyone to participate, please submit this information to Ala_Foos@yahoo.com. It's very likely we will add that information here so that possibly others will learn of it and open the door for the possibility of growth in the local player base.
Direct your questions or comments to the Southern Foosball Program/Rodney Jenkins by email: Ala_Foos@yahoo.com.
