View Full Version : U.S. Amateur Regionals

08-13-2004, 08:53 AM
Just got the packet in the mail with all pertinent information regarding the regional events for the U.S. Amateur (http://www.poolplayers.com/usam.html) . I will be playing out of the Cue Ball in Salem, OR September 18/19. Only 29 players signed up for this regional which really surprised me. I only recognize one player who I have played a number of times. Should be a fun experience.

Anyone else playing in a different regional location?

Hi PG,

I have heard of Henery Brotd (sp) but don't know him. I know Tina Larson though. She plays pretty sporty and will tell you that too.

He's from Chicago.

I'm surprised you don't know him. He has at least 2 amateur (APA) 9-ball titles. He always played with John Abruzzo and Larry Schwartz on a Masters team called the Pour House that always places high at the BCA 8-ball team nationals in Vegas.

I met her in Peoria. She's a sweetheart.

Hi Wally,

I know of him and I know what he looks like and I am good friends with John Abbruzo. I know Larry Schwartz and have played him some before. I just have never really met the guy before. I think I have played in some events that he might have been at too? Just saw a pic of him. He plays a lot of those Greylake tourneys that Karabotos' puts on. Does well too as I can see many times coming in 4th. bested by Nevel, Baracks and Sargent. 4th is right there so I can see him winning. That's within striking distance and could very well come down to one shot or one roll.


C.C.~~never met Duaine Tuula either. he plays a lot of tourneys too out here. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I looked on the website and didnt see dates for the particular locations, are they the same at all locations? Sep 18th and 19th? I would love to play in an event like that, closest one to me is quite a road trip away though :P Need to find out where mountainview, CA is ... anyone know?
