BEST IN UNIFORM TROPHY was bagged by RC MANILA KALAW TEAM who donned a red and blue shirt with Philippine Flag on the front  left side of the shirt and an emblem of the Sun on the right with number 9 in its core, to signify the 9-Ball Billiards Tournament.  At the back is the RC Manila Kalaw Logo and name...

 

But the highlight of the Tournament was an Exhibition Duel between WORLD's BILLIARDS NO. 2 Mr. DENNIS ORCULLO against a formidable opponent GOV. MAENG MERCADO.

 

It was a duel for the books and I really felt so sorry for my other classmates and fellow Rotarians who missed the specatacular breathteaking challenge between 2 greats.

 

It was a race to 3 Challenge and the WINNER with a score of 3-2 is, of course, GOV. ISMAEL "MAENG" MERCADO!
