Southern Billiards Spring fever Tournament
Mark you calendar, chalk your stick, bring your stake and your best game, the 13th Annual Spring Fever 9-Ball Tournaments will held at Southern Billiards on the 25th, 26th, and 27th of April 2003. The format and limited field is to accommodate the sleep and action preferences of the players.

The Junior Tournament (under 18) is held Friday at 7:00 p.m. and is limited to 16 players. The Open Tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday. The room will open Saturday at 8:00 a.m. (if it ever closed) and the Players meeting and auction begin at 12:00 noon Saturday to allow for some sleep following the challenge matches likely to take place Friday night.

The Open is limited to 48 players and entry is closed after the first blind bid, so pre-registration is strongly encouraged. The field will be narrowed to the final 16 Saturday, which should occur around 7:00pm. This allows time for challenge and practice play Saturday night, and some sleep, given that tournament play doesn’t resume until 1:00 Sunday afternoon.

The room will open Sunday at 12:00 noon (if it ever closed) and the auction on the final sixteen will be at 1:00pm. This should put us finishing around 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. evening. The room will again remain open to accommodate play as long as the tables are in action.

details on the tournament, plus hotel information along with directions to the poolroom can be obtained from the Southern Billiards web site. The tournament information is listed on the Tournament Calendar, a direct link to the listing is
