THREE LAKES - Three Lakes lost more than a part of history when the Oneida Village Inn burned down over a month ago.
It also lost the home of the town's 45th annual women's pool tournament.
That fire destroyed most of the organizing materials for the tournament, including rosters, brackets and contact information.
Organizers Jackie Walker and Connie Lang had to piece the tournament back together by sending out Facebook messages to everyone who already signed up.
Despite that, two dozen teams played, which is nearly everybody that signed up the first time.
"It was a tearjerker," Walker said. "Everybody coming up to me, hugging us, thanking us for having the tournament again. It will be on again next year. After 45 years, you can't quit, you have to keep going."
Although the tournament wrapped up Sunday night, it won't be the last one this month.
The men's tournament starts on the last weekend of April.
