Anybody go to the Allen Hopkins Bar Box Championships over the weekend? Who won? Was it well received? I had other plans or I would have played.

I went, Duane.

It was a small turn out. Allen ran two events on about 30 tables; the Valley Forge Barbox event and qualifiers for his Million Dollar 9 Ball event, simultaneously. Everything was on the lower level and 2/3's of the space was occupied by the local APA "cities" event. Only a couple of vendors and no action on the action tables.

It reminded me of the original Expo, when it first started. It was small-ish, but grew exponentially. This one has potential too.

I think Hopkin's success will be to stay with his original business model; run it along side of a large league event. A lot of the barbox touney players were also there for the league event.

Shane Winters won the barbox event.
