Hi Carol
It was nice meeting you at VF in March --- as we were both trying to check out. Is this 8 ball going to be held at VF - I thought Allen was maybe going to do something but not necessarily at VF is why I am asking.

Hey Barb,
I was down Dawns this past Sunday,for the day, and Allen mentioned this tournament to me-I KNOW, its an 8-ball bar-table championship-held downstairs in the convention center of VF-there will be some vendors,I think the first 2 days there is some kind of TAP or APA thing going on and if Im not mistaken, I think its free for spectators to get in!YEP!

Honestly Bob, I don't know about that. And besides, I'm just a helper at the VF tournies. Nadine and Jerry Mazzola always run the show for the Amateur events at VF. And rightly so. They run them so well, we didn't have one unrecoverable incident lat year. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Wow! This could be quite the tournament on the Smart Boxes.

That is great news. I eagerly await the formal announcement, so that I can read all about it! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Is this tournament open to players of all caliber, or is it restricted to amateur players and/or league members?

To have an 8-ball tournament of this stature is quite refreshing and innovative, and, of course, we all know the venue will be superb in Valley Forge! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

That's just great! That conference center is a very nice venue and can accommodate an event such as this quite nicely (IMO).

I did notice that a couple of the days are at the same time as the Orlando Open at Disney in Florida. The Valley Forge region, though, definitely does have a very strong constituency of pool people, as does Florida. I hope both events do well.

I do enjoy attending pool happenings which are truly open to all. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
