View Full Version : Joliet, IL Tournament Going to Be Huge Success!

04-17-2005, 03:32 PM
$500.00 Added and %100 Payback in Joliet, IL is expecting a huge turn out. There is going to be a huge singles event on SATURDAY and most likely sold out scotch doubles on FRIDAY EVENING. The Singles event uses American Standardized rules and the scotch will use a handicap system.

The phone is ringing off the hook and the main hotel attached to the tournament site only has 4 available sleeping rooms left. The host hotel have made a deal with the hotel across the street for the same hotel rate of $35.99 but I am not sure how many rooms they will have left at the time. Recently Joliet, IL had a power problem and all of the lesser expensive hotels are sold out to out of town work crews. This is going to heavily impact the tournament sleeping rooms for our players.

I will be excepting registrations starting on Friday at 2:00 sharp for BOTH events. Remember that the Singles event on SATURDAY begins with the players auction and the tournament will not start at 11:00 AM sharp because of that. It will start immediately AFTER the auction.

Here is all the information again:
