View Full Version : 8 Ball Tourney in South Beloit, IL This Weekend?

10-24-2002, 02:59 PM
Someone on RSB mentioned a tourney in South Beloit, IL this weekend. I haven't been able to get any info on it, but did a search here and found mention of it in a post made by Chris Cass. So it's at Leisure Tyme Billiards then, correct? My confusion was: A. I hadn't heard anything about it locally (I live/work in the area) and B. I couldn't for the life of me figure out who would be hosting a tourney in South Beloit. Leisure Tyme is actually in Rockford, IL on N. Main, unless of course there's another Leisure Tyme I don't know about.
I wonder why I'd never heard about it. You'd think they'd promote it a little more. Seems like lack of promotion is a problem in pool; unless you're "in the know", you don't.
