Someone thinks pool players are stupid rednecks.

What this post does not mention is that you must be a member of the "Cujoroho Billiard Club" in order to play in the tournament. And guess what? You can join at the discount rate of $39 if pre-paid by the end of the month ($49 afterwards). Pay when you register for the "free" tournment.

Let's see .... $20,000 added, no entry fee, WOW!

But minimum "membership" fees = $39 x 512 = $19,968. So the real "added money" is only THIRTY-TWO DOLLARS MAXIMUM, assuming everyone gets in on the $10 discount.

Gimme a break .... this is just another way to keep the coins flowing into those $1-a-game bar boxes.

Copied from the event web site:

I agree! Of all the nerve,wanting us to pay to play on pool tables. These tables are free and we should get to play for free!

The "nerve" part is advertising a tournament as having no entry fee when there's actually a $39 (plus service charge!) fee to sign up. Tells me these folks are scammers and BS artists. I'd be worried about getting paid if I won /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

No Entry Fee Comments...

I understand how this could get twisted, but this is a No Entry Fee event. The catch is that it's only open to Cujoroho Billiard Club Members, not the public. The CBC memberships are also required to compete in the Cujoroho Challenge Series and any other Cujoroho events during the season.

The money for the Mania event is not comming from the player sign-ups at all, in fact I have already sent the prize money to the BCAPL, the host for the event. In addition if we do not have anyone else sign up for the event (we have about 200 registered now) the prize money will stay the same.

This event was created to celebrate the kick-off of the Cujoroho Challenge Series, as a bonus for those who had already signed up and paid their membership fees and for those that will pay them anyway so they can compete in the CCS.

Good luck to those that have entered, I look forward to seeing you there for the event.
