Hello All~

Here is all the information you need for the Windy City Open this year. Please scroll down to the bottom of the email and see all of the events possible to play in. We have a 5 man team event applicable for all who play in ANY BCA, ACS, Valley and KPBL. There is a 3 man team event for those's who play in ANY APA events. Both of these events are open to all states and all qualified players.

The Windy City Open offers our 8 and 9 Ball events, a bank event and something for the seniors. Events start as early as Wednesday the 3rd of January and play continues until Sunday the 8th. There is something for everyone this year and we hope to see you all back again.

Our host location is Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL. We have room rates as little as $55.00 a night plus tax. These are limited, so I highly suggest that you get your reservation TODAY before that rate sells out. The resort also offers a $99.00 rate in the Tower section of the resort. The tower is closer to the event and the rooms and have just been remodeled.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at windycityopen@aol.com or call me direct at 630-244-2900.
