MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER TWENTYNINE PALMS --
The cracking sounds of billiard balls marked the beginning of the Single Marine Program’s weekly pool tournament held at the 5th Street Zone, July 16, 2015.
The SMP-sponsored tournament provides service members with an opportunity to get outside the barracks and promote camaraderie through recreational activity during their off-duty hours. The tournament began with competitors being matched up at random and eliminated upon receiving a loss. The event concludes with top competitor receiving a prize that varies week-to-week.
Lance Cpl. Ryan Maxwell, machinist, Combat Logistics Battalion 453, proved victorious over 10 competitors in this week’s tournament after being undefeated throughout the evening.
Other activities available at the Zone include Ping-Pong, video game and poker tournaments. Additionally, the SMP occasionally hosts trips and events available to all active-duty Marines and sailors.
