Dear Friends:

With kind helps from Diamonds Billiard Products, we are hosting a CueTable Layout Competition at Derby City Classic this year.

I would like to invite vistors to record some great shots each day and post them online at PL.CueTable.com. By going to the same site, people who cannot make it to Louisville this year will get to enjoy the excitement on the same day.

All participants will be able to remember the professionals' top performance from this event. At the same time they have a chance to win great prizes. Further more, all layouts will remain online as a great learning resource for the billiard community to study in the years to come.

The url for the Layout Competition is http://cuetable.com/event/dcc2007.html

The url for people's layout submission is http://pl.cuetable.com/forumdisplay.php?f=69 People are welcome to upload tournament pictures or link youtube videos here as well. However, only posts with layouts will be eligible for competition.

What To Do
Download the competition flyer with blank table templates from CueTable

At the tournament, follow these 3 easy steps:

Step 1. Draw out the shots using a pen if you see a great shot during the tournament.
Step 2. Plot your layout using CueTable billiard diagramming software. ( http://cuetable.com/P/ )

CueTable Updates
Thank to people who have helped, there has been a few website updates.

Also, there has a programming update (as a great idea just clicked in my head on new years eve). As tested on old P4 machine this afternoon, the cpu monitor is showing "80%" instead of "100%" usage now. The current version is v70. If you don't see "Welcome to CueTable v.70 : ) " as program starts up, please make sure to reload the page in the browser. Meanwhile I shall keep working on improvements.

Thank you very much and I hope to meet you at DCC...
