anybody making plans to attend the Midwest Expo in the Chicago area, in mid-October? It will be a similar venue to that of Valley Forge.

Hi Charlie,

Where's it taking place? Is it just for venders or can anyone go? Sorry, I didn't get to Vegas to buy you that drink or have dinner.

Hi all,
The event will feature BOTH APA and BCA events. There will be both 9 ball and 8 ball in BCA format in both divisions. The APA division will be for 5's and under. If you are a member of APA and want to play in the 5's and under event, you must bring a recent copy of your APA score sheet and league directors phone number.

With the BCA events, you are welcome to play in this event regardless if you are a BCA member or not and as long as you are NOT on the BCA pro list. Guaranteed $15,000.00 ADDED!

We have several things planned for this event. In addition to the non stop pool events, there are 2 indoor swimming pools, 18 hole championship golf course, comedy club, dinner theater and baby-sitting for those who want to bring their children.

This event has been planned so that you can bring your family and enjoy the weekend.

The Wednesday evening before this starts, there will be a huge kickoff Mardi Gras theme dinner with celebrities and a few big surprises.

AmberBock and Budweiser will sponsor this event with plenty of giveaway's. Kahlua is premiering a new drink at this event, so there will be plenty of that too!

Earl Strickland will be there, and is doing a pool school along with signing autographs and hanging out with the crowd. He ius telling everyone to bring their golf clubs because he plans on doing some golfing. People are also signing up to golf with Earl.

I recently went to the MidWest EXPO website, to see which vendors are going to attend & there wasn't a list... Can you post a list or at least get the website up to date?

The website is under new construction and will be up as soon as possible.We have had several problems with our hosting company that have lead us to do many changes to the site. The vendors include the ACA (American Cuemakers Assoc.), in addition to many quality cue makers. RT9NY, KC Innovations, several rec room specialists and others.

Sorry for the inconvenience, it will be up as soon as possible.
