Good morning:

I will also donate a Billiards Workbook for the raffle and/or prize listing. I will be exhibiting at the US Open this year, Booth # 30 ( right next to the ticket counter) so whoever will be responsible for the prizes will be able to pick it up at the Chesapeake Convention Center.

Hey?! That's my job!!! Just kidding! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Actually, Tom_in_Cincy did the prize list, I kept the player list and combined the prize list with it. I'll still keep the player list but I'll start that up probably some time in Julyish. And...

I'd like to donate a 2x2 case that I have just sitting in the closet at home:

OMG, is it that time of the year again?

Mike has kicked the CCBIII into gear and this years tournament format will be decided later.

Last years format was exciting and Mr. Ingrate (Big Dave) was responsible for all the complicated table and parings assignments. Huge success, even during the electical blackouts. The Fun was more than anyone could have exepected.

What would everyone like to do this year.. suggestions please?

Donations for the door prizes are greatly appreciated.

Saturday, Sept 11th at Q-Masters at 10 a.m.

coffee and asprins are on me this year.

Last years format was outstanding. It allowed most people to meet each other by either being a partner or an opponent, in a match.
Unfortunately, to repeat that format, we need someone with a laptop and printer, as well as Dave's program.
Of course, Dave's expertise would not hurt. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

It will be very difficult finding a better format, for a sociable tournament, like CCBIII.

Rich,

As you know, last year's format was done with acrobat files. It was a considerable amount of work making the charts since I had to make a separate set for 20, 24, 28, and 32 players. I also used this format for a Santa's Anonymous fund raiser and it proved to be unbelievably successful. I have another fund raiser coming up on April 24th and it is estimated that we could have up to 64 people wanting to enter.

For those of you who don't know how the tournament works, please bear with my long winded explanation.

This fun tournament features a scotch doubles type of play except you have a new partner for each round. You never have the same partner more than once and you never have the same set of opponents more than once. Since there are no fixed partnerships, scores are kept individually. If your partnership happens to win 2 games to 0, you and your partner would each get credited with 2 points while each of your opponents would receive 0 points. This creates the restriction of playing a fixed number of games rather than a race to something. Last year at the 2nd Annual CCB we played 2 games of 9-Ball for each match. Keeping individual scores also creates another restriction. There can be no byes since each player must play the same number of games as all others. In practical terms it means the number of players must be evenly divisible by four. 32 players = 16 teams = 8 matches per round. You can see that 30 players = 15 teams = 7 matches and one bye. But, it also means that the tournament can be ended at the end of any round if there are time constraints and everyone would have played the same number of games.

Instead of creating a large group of charts, I've come up with a piece of software that I am offering to the Pool community free of charge. There are no activation key requirements or any charge for upgrades. It will always be free as I expect it will be used for fund raisers and fun tournaments. The minimum number of entries it can handle is 8 and the maximum is 64, in 4 player increments of course. The maximum number of rounds is 20. I put this limit in since 64 entries = 63 possible pairings for each player = 63 rounds = 32 teams per round = 16 matches per round = 1,008 matches in total.

I have version 1.0 of "The Fun Tournament Director" completed and documented and plan on doing my official release after the fund raiser on April 24, 2004.

You can dowload the installable file tftd_1_0.exe (http://members.shaw.ca/pooltools3/tftd_1_0.exe) and install it on your computer to get a look at it before its general release. It is much easier to use than the previous charts I created. You still need a printer for score sheets, although I allow a viewer for everything that is printed. You could theoretically operate without a printer, but it is not advised. It seems to operate on all flavors of windows as far back as Win'95.

I'm sure Cathy will have little or no problem using this package and I'm sure someone could download this software on their laptop and arrive at the tournament with a laptop and printer. Oh, it uses standard 8.5 x 11 paper. Check it out and let me know your comments.

Fank,

If you want to play you must meet the requirements. The requirements are... you must be a CCB poster.

The CCBIII tournament committee will be the final say on who is eligble. Not too many restrictions.. We let kato's friends play and they couldn't even spell puter.

Door prizes will be distributed at random, as usual and so far we have Sally's and InsidePool's donation of 4 One year subscriptions and 4 InsidePOOL Tees.

Now is the time to start working on donation committments.

All donations will be appreciated and sponsers mentioned quite often in the next few months.

So, this would be my 4th or 5th post. I'm planning on being at the US open this year. Would 4 or 5 posts be enough to qualify for the CCB tounament?

Dave, you are amazing and your programs are amazing.
I only wish I had a lap top, so I could volunteer to run it.
I think we all had fun with the format, last year, and most people got to meet and play together.

I don't know what Tom has in mind for this year, but maybe someone with a lap top, will step up and volunteer, so we could use your program. I know Cathy would be happy to help, again.

At this point, I am assuming you and your lovely wife, Joanne, are not making the trip again. You will both be missed.

Tom, don't forget Mike's generous offer of trophies, a cue and a case. I also believe, Barbara mentioned bags of her nuts. They are easily worth the expense of the trip. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

BTW, I'm still looking for your tapes...I WILL find them!
