Hey Wally and thanks for your support!

We are expecting some 50 vendors, we cut out the vendor space to make room for more pool tables. We are bringing in 130, 7 foot and 9, 9 foot Diamond Smart Tables for the expo. It's all about ACTION at this event, and hopefully and with a little luck it will be full of it!

The registrations are starting to come in quick, we sold out 6 weeks prior to the event last year. So let's hope there is some room this year.
