I hope no one minds another tourney announcement, since there's no section for it on this board.

Emerald Coast 9 Ball Classic, Ft Walton Beach, FL
Open and women's divisions

Women: Oct. 27-28. $1000 added, $30 pre-entry ($40 day of)
Race to 7, finals 1 race to 9, limited to 32 entries

Open Division: Oct. 29-Nov. 1, $7200 added, $100 pre-entry, $125 day of. Race to 9, finals 1 race to 12. Limited to 128 entries.

Both events played on olhausen Grand Champions, Simonis cloth. Texas Express rules.

Event coincides with Northwest Florida Fair, and most matches will be played at the fairgrounds, however if the Open division fills, some matches will be played at Starcade Billiards in Ft Walton Beach, FL. This is due to the restricted operating hours at the fair.

Approximately 35,000 people will go through the building where the tournament is being held, and probably 80% of those people have never seen a pool tournament. We hope this is a great opportunity to gain new fans and players.

Mike Massey and Lori Jon Jones will perform exhibitions at the event. For more info, visit www.starcadebilliards.com (http://www.starcadebilliards.com) or email me.
