Okay, guys, I live 20 minutes from Louisville, I don't want to put up $150 entry fee, cause i'm simply not ready for that, can a person go up there and shoot without being in a tourny?

Sign up for the Banks -- it has the lowest entry fee. A player pass gets you in the whole tourney run, and you feel like somebody (even if you aren't /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif )

There is a spectator fee every day, or a pass for longer I believe, and you need something -- either one of the spectator passes or one of the player passes to get into the main tournament room during regular match hours -- like 11am to 11pm. You can get into the 'practice room' AKA action room without any pass. All of the tables are Diamond Smart tables that take dollar coins (available on site) and are metered something like 12 min/dollar. The tables in the main room become available after tournament hours are go all night.

If you live that near, don't cheat yourself, get on over there for the time of your life!

But, most people will be in action. Are you ready for that?

SPetty, The tables are 9 foot coin opps with a timer. Dollar tokens worth $5.00 gets you 30 minutes and then the table shuts down the ball return system. P.S. - it is more like 6 minutes to a dollar! You should join us there. By the way- I would like to come to one of your next get togethers at Petty Point. If you remember me, I was the beginner who came in with Deeman.

There should also be "challenge tables" starting at $10.00 per game where a player takes on all challengers until beaten and then give up the table to the new winner.

But DO go to the event...even as a spectator...it is a BLAST.

Regards,
Jim

Scott,

Yes, Tori is coming and we look forward to seeing you as well. Good luck in the banks. If I'd just grown up a few miles across the Tennessee line in Kentucky, I'd enter that event as well. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

<font color="blue"> Respectfully, If you don't know what action tables are you had btter be careful. You can play at any time even if not in the tournament just step up tp a table with a handful of cash and you will be accomodated.

Good luck...

I'll be there from Tuesday afternoon the 9th thru Saturday or Sunday. We will be in the hotel so I'll be easy to find. I'll call you when I have a room number. Tori says "Hello".

Now that is funny.....Deewoman is not quite "Carmen" to your "Vincent" role????
Cliff, a bartender, and Bucktooth, a retired jeweler....sounds like easy money!!!

Thankfully, Carmen (DeeWoman) didn't know I knew Cliff and have had my butt kicked by him before. You don't play in the south and not know Cliff....
