Okay, so women aren't allowed to enter the real USOpen because there's something called a WPBA USOpen for women.

Is it open to all women? Or do you have to win a qualifier? How would I enter if I wanted to?

Good evening:

The WPBA US Open is limited to a field of 64 players and, in order to be eligible to compete, you must be a WPBA Touring Professional, or have won a qualifier, or have received a sponsors exemption.

SPetty,

If you are not a WPBA Touring Pro or Active Pro, you must win a Qualifier for the event or be asked by the WPBA to fill a spot.

But it's not just any Regional Tour event, you must win the Qualifier of a santioned State Championship event of a Regional Tour.

And quite coincidentally, JPNEWT is having one this weekend in Binghamton. CarolNYC posted on this earlier.

Thanks, that's what I thought.

So I can't play in the real USOpen because it's not really open, and I can't play in the Women's USOpen because it's not really open.

SPetty, I have a great idea. Let's go in as partners and sponsor our very own OPEN. Are you with me so far? Okay...it's OUR Open so that means OUR rules. What are OUR rules? Our rules are NO ONE CAN PLAY 'CAUSE IT'S A CLOSED OPEN! Are you in? This could be big! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Rip~believe it or not!

WooHoo!

Too bad it's a CLOSED OPEN! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

What a strange game we have chosen to devote so much of our lives to! /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Great plan. Every entry will receive a bag of nuts. Let me see...we're allowing no entries 'cuz it's a closed OPEN, so we'll need approximately zero bags of nuts. Check my math just to be sure, ok? This thing is going to be huge!
Rip~believe it not!

Hi CC,
Seeding will be a tough one. But----since you're my partner in the Las Vegas Strip Pool Hall/Wedding Chapel--could you also handle being the official spokesperson for the CLOSED OPEN? Keep in mind since it is closed, you'll have no one to speak with about it but we need to fill the position!

Are you in? We need you buddy.
Rip~knows the Cassman is up to the challenge..believe it or else!

Rip
09-29-2004, 08:36 PM
Okay Cueball, you're in! Don't forget to sign in at the door. You'll know which door because it'll be the one that's CLOSED!
SPetty...can this guy be trusted? /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Rip~knows Mike is one of the good guys 'cuz I heard it thru the grapevine...and I'm just about to lose my mind..ooh ooh I heard it through the grapevine...dum dum dumdum dum dum dumdum dum dum...I never could carry much of a tune!

09-29-2004, 09:57 PM
No problem, I'll go there and invite you! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

put my name down then erase it so i know i am in. but i need someone not to share a room with cuz the hotel charges double for these type on tournaments...So now all we gotta do is get MR. C. C. to be our tournament dictator and we gotta call diamond and have them not bring the tables and then we will be all set. And i hope i don't get a bye in the first round....Hey wait a minute... where is this not being held so i can cancel my airline flight /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif.........mike

OK guys,

I want in too! I am quite glad that this OPEN is CLOSED, because the simple fact is I suck at pool...can I bring my bowling ball instead? It's like pool, but with a bigger ball and no stick.....

Chris Cass
09-30-2004, 02:25 PM
Why RIP,

I'd be happy to be the tournament spokesperson. I must admit this new format I'm trying is tough. The concept of starting with the loser bracket first is a hard sell. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I can definitely stand up for Mike, RIP. I know I can trust him as far as I can throw him. So, that shouldn't be a problem. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif I'm open to all closed suggestions as spokesperson and although I didn't hear it through the grapevine? I have been know to lose my mind. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Well Mike,

I'd be most happy to be the Tournament Dictater and Spokesperson for the event and gladly talk to Diamond about donating 400 of their finest tables for our closed Open event to the first 32 entrants.

We do have some tournament suggestions from some of the more Openly closed members that won't be attending the meeting.

1) smoking is a must.
2) topless shooting only.
3) bowling balls allowed however you can't force them down the pockets.
4) dancing allowed only near the corner pockets.
5) skirts allowed but legs must be unshaven.
6) refs must be intoxicated during matches.
7) Danny B is allowed to play but "Only" in the ring game.
8) butt checks must be exposed while stretching to make the ball.
9) Bob J. breaks for everyone.
10) Stretch must show "it" if he comes.
11) Southerners and Yankee' are allowed however, the Yankee' must stay in trailers and the Southerners must wear big gold chains with Caddilac hood ornaments dangling from them.
12) Eg8r and Qtech must bring their own debate teams.

Did I miss any? HAHHA Oh, Barry must bring is missing finger.

Regards,

C.C.~~ /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Mike, it wouldn't be a true closed open with only women allowed to wear the heels and micro mini'. That would have to change. I'll agree to the eating of nuts but will replace them with freeze pops like at the ccb open open.

Leaving the tournament dictater at home? Can't I just be dropped off at the ph?
