View Full Version : 7th Annual CCB Tournament

We are starting to get organized for the 7th Annual CCB Tournament.

For new CCB members, or those who may not be familiar with this tournament, I will explain.

For the past 6 years, members of this forum have been holding a tournament during the U.S. Open, at Q-Masters pool room, in Virginia Beach. This is a fun tournament and it is geared for all players, of all skill levels, to have some fun and meet other members of the forum.

There is no entry fee for this tournament. You just have to be a forum member. In fact, this year, because of dwindling numbers, some of the others that help with this tournament, as well as myself, have decided to open it up to members of some of the other pool forums. I will be posting an announcement on the other forums.

There is also no fee for table time for this tournament, as Barry Behrman, owner of Q-Masters and promoter of the U.S. Open has graciously donated the table time each year.

The only thing at stake in this tournament is bragging rights, as well as beautiful first and second place trophies, made by Brian in Va. There are usually some prizes available, via a free raffle. Iím sure JMD in Va, head of the prize committee, will be letting us know more about that.

If you are planning on going to the U.S. Open and you would like to spend some time meeting forum members and having fun, you should seriously think about joining us.
If you are not planning on going to the U.S. Open, you should really think about it. You will see the best players in the world in one of the best tournaments in the world.

CCB Tournament Information:

Where: Q-Masters Billiards, in Virginia Beach, Va.
When: Friday, October 24, 2008.
Time: Practice starts at 10am. After a short players meeting, play will begin about 11am.
Format: We will be playing a multi-table 10 ball ring game and we will be mixing players periodically. Each win is worth one point and, at the end, the player with the most points will win. In the event of a tie, a one game playoff will be played.

If you would like to enter this tournament, please send me a PM.

Here is a picture of Eric, last yearís winner, along with Brian in Va, maker of the trophies, JMD in Va, head of the prize committee.

I am going to get in this tournament if possible, PM sent. Looks like fun.

Can anyone tell me about going to the US Open? I have not been to it.

Joe,
The US Open is a lot of fun. My wife and I have been there the past 3 years. Tournament play usually starts about 11am and runs after midnight. The best thing to do is get reserved seats at the TV table. This is taped for Accu-stats and has sometimes better matches than the finals. Barry gives out champagne for a toast to the winner of the tournament. Along with the tournament, vendors will be set up selling cases, cues, videos, etc. As for the CCB tournament, this is completely for fun, and alot of sharking going on. Nobody takes this seriously, as my wife who doesn't play between this tournament, plays and has fun. Also we try to out for dinner as a group as well.


DG - Rich, sign Mrs DG and myself up for the tournament

Looks like Kay and I will be there for the last few nights. Now I need to make reservations at the Mariott.

Good Luck and have a blast guys. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Just curious, but we have to pay the 10.00 admission I assume, right? My wife and I were debating taking a vacation this year, maybe I can talk her into this...just what to do with the kids?

Curtis,

The admission is $10 per person/per session (Day and night sessions).

I would say that you can day trip to Virginia Beach's boardwalk, which is about 15 minutes away. The ocean is always an attraction for those that dont live near a coast.

Barry always puts on a first class event. If youre going to see some world class Pool, you wont find a bad seat in the house.

Still not 100 percent if I am going to the USOpen or not, if I am I'd like to play in this too.

I would like to point out that Rich's photography is second to none although for that picture he had the "extra 10 pounds" filter on the lens. At least on the left side of the picture!

If you're considering a trip to the Open, you won't be disappointed. And if you're coming to the Open, you owe it to yourself to join us on Friday morning for the CCB tournament. (I was going to say hangovers are welcome but for many of us, it's de rigeur!) We have a terrific time, laughing the entire tournament, and just enjoying the company of people who love this great game of ours!

We'd love to have you join us!

Heath, I'll put you on the list. If you aren't able to go, let me know and I will just take you off the list. It is no problem.

If your father is going with you and he would like to join us, he is more than welcome. Just let me know.

Toss me in the "maybe" pile. I always intend to go every year, then something happens and I wind up not making it. I've got a lot going on the next few months, but it's still quite possible I may be up Maryland way at that time... in which case I should be able to make it no problem. Other option is I may be in Vegas at that time, in which case I'm a no go. Then the third option of still being here in central Alabama, which throws me in the maybe category. As the time draws closer and plans become more solid I'll let ya know ASAP. If nothing else I'd love to get by and meet some of you I haven't met, and go see the Open.

Mike, I added you to the list and I hope everything else goes as well as it could.

As far as the cue for Phil, he is aware of the situation and I'm sure he doesn't mind. Although I am not in direct contact with Phil, I have passed your message along via a mutual friend.

Hopefully my plans don't change this year. I had my heatpump go yesterday so I am going to have to spend significant money in getting a new one. (this one lasted for 18 years)

If my plans do change I will need to sell my two tickets Jacoby 18 and 19 from 10/22 till 10/25. Shoot me a PM on AZ (same name) if interested and I will let you know what happens.

Will be eating a lot of ramen noodles and granola bars for the next few months. Maybe I will lose some weight. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
