MOMA Pool & Darts
MOMA's 2017 summer conference was held June 14-16, 2017 at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge. The lodge is located in northern Minnesota’s Brainerd Lakes Area. The conference was well attended by operators from Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota, AMOA’s new President Rick LaFleur, and manufacturer representatives.
The pool and dart league coordinators of the member companies met to discuss the past tournament and to prepare for the January 2018 tournament at Canterbury Park in Shakopee. NDA Executive Director Jack Kelleher and AMOA Executive Director Lori Schneider presented important industry news. Great summer seminars were given by Heartland Payment Systems and NDA’s Kelleher.
Attendees enjoyed several different activities including golf, fishing, a lake cruise, and the 1st annual Rick LaFleur foosball tournament. Guests also participated in a medallion hunt in which clues were given every few hours about the location of the hidden medallion. Molly Stewart of Lieberman Companies pieced the puzzle together and found the medallion.
The conference concluded Friday morning. The following officers were elected for 2018: Tom Graham, Jr. (Past President), Shawn Dean (President), Andrew Schmitz (Vice President), Terry O’Hara (Secretary), and Bob Thomas (Treasurer).
