There are only 26 registries for the CCB Tournament at the US Open. Brady will put up $100 added money if the full field is reached. The tournament is double elimination, so everyone will have a good chance to compete.

Although I cannot be there, I have made a donation of $20.00 additional for the tournament.

All I ask is that updates be posted here at the board.


Harold - <font color=black> would love to be there and give my Predator Shaft another chance! LOL!

Lorri would love to see Harold do that!!!!!! And I'd take TONS of pics and send them to Shane so he could use them IN ALL HIS FUTURE ADVERTISEMENTS AND E-MAIL UPDATES!!!!! LMAO, hope you are too Harold! Luv, Lorri

Voodoo, I know I can't make it but if I could, I would definitely be watching all of Strickland's matches and you would definitely have to stop me from heckling Earl! That is if he misbehaved himself!

I will be keeping an eye on the Open and CCBers update!

...and go ahead, do some of your VooDoo and make Earl the next US Open champ so he can brag about being a true World Champ!

Harold ~ sure hating myself for not being there!

Look on the bright side Harold, there's still two months to change your mind!

Harold, I will be calling Chris Cass nightly to give him updates. I'm sure somebody would have a lap top, we'll find out when we get there.

About your $20 donation. I'm sure the people who get paid out will be happy. The difference between your donation and mine is that I'll be there.LOL

Kato~~~hoping to draw the biggest dog in the field.

I will be there with digital camera (I'm sure others will be there 2). If somebody has a laptop I can download to I'll take as many pictures as I can. I'm also bringing 2 disponsible cameras which I'll get developed and scan to post. SPetty has told me she'd put 'em on the web. That is a cool thing. Even though lot's of folks can't go to the various tournaments, the rest can try to make 'em feel like they were there.

You guys are great! I wish we could be there. I think it's a great idea. We met so many wonderful people while in Vegas, but not all of them. It would be nice to put a face with the name for those we haven't met yet. If there's anything I can do, let me know.

Heide ~ thinking up ways to go, LOL

Heide, you will be there in spirit through our stories and pictures. We will all get a great laugh when Voodoo and I get back home. I have promised to call you guys every night (free long distance, no roaming remember) and give you as many updates as possible. I will have pad and paper to write down scores and what not. You guys will never be out of the loop.

Kato~~~on the job and happy to be of service.

I'll be waiting for the pictures to post, but probably won't get them until after the thing's over. Like you guys, I can't make this one and am heartbroken that I won't be able to meet everyone. This looks like the "big one" to me!

Alright, Mr. Free Nights and Weekends, you call and we'll update the board. We'll have pen and paper handy by the phone to take all the juicy gossip, and scores, too. I guess it's the least we can do since only our spirit will be there.

Too much work for me. I work for uncle Sam and September is the last month of the fiscal year. Lots of accountability issues regarding the use of appropriated funds during the fiscal year. My boss would "cut my throat" if I say that I want to go and play billiards at a tournament. One thing is definitely sure...If I hit the PR Lotto before that date I would just go there and have fun, worry about the work later....LMMFAO.

Voodoo Daddy.....I need your assistance here.....please make my dreams come true!

Harold ~ only a miracle could get me to the US Open this year....

Fiscal countdowns are brutal. Thank god thats in another department. See Harold...I too am a Government employee. What I do is tell my boss that pool tournaments keep the sanity level high. If I dont get to go to however many tournaments I want to a year I could become "Postal"...hahahahahaha. Works every time. Gimme a few days to whip up a tournament curse for your boss...LMFAO!!

Personally, I hope to still be in the big show, but if not, I'll be there, I just can't commit to it because there is a hopeful part of me that still expects to be playing on saturday /ccboard/images/icons/wink.gif

BTW, has anyone asked BD if they would be willing to kick anything in for the tournament?

Oh Christ!! Nobody told me there were gonna be pictures of this stuff!! I take TERRIBLE pictures! Children have run screaming to their mothers after viewing my pictures! (Lorri is cursing and grumbling back to the weight bench....)Did I mention I was cursing and grumbling?

Voodoo, I'm in "that Department"; as a Contract Specialist I have to review all contracts/non-contracts and scramble to see where we can save some money and move it around for other essentials. Another thing is that this is the month that people "remember" they need this and that, and then they want it for "yesterday." This madness could in fact make one go "postal." So, whip up a concoction and send it "Federal Express"..... LMAO....
