1ST Senior One Pocket Classic (Players List)

I know it wouldn't be easy for you, but if you'll come down I'll let you have half my action to help defray your expenses. :heh

Thanks buddy. You're all heart. But I'm a bit cold and I'll be burning 1/2 my bankroll to keep warm. I figure at least this way I'll be warm 😳. (Except for my cold dead heart that is 😂)

Really though, I would love to go if I could just to watch. Best of luck!!!

I see that he answered and that because of time, he will not be able to make a shirt for this event.

Sorry to hear about the family health issues. Hope they continue to improve.

He bought a bunch of farm equipment and is busy in the boonies clearing some land. Frank The Barber, Bill Meacham and I are rooming together. Bill was in California quite a few years before going to Colorado. We all go way back. I have known Frank since the 60's and Bill since the 70's. Now that Baby Huey (Jerry) has decided to come, California will have a strong group with Jerry and Wayne added to the mix.
What a killer crew! I suspect that the Calif. contingent will have a strong possibility of taking home the title. But any one of a half dozen guys could win it, for sure. Only one thing is a certainty: there will be a tremendous amount of 1P knowledge on display...;)

OK, that does it. I was plannin' to take it easy on you, but it's on now... It is ON.

(You probably don't want to sell me that nice 4-piece now, but I was plannin' to play with my new Budweiser stick anyway... Good luck, Sucka!)

Now John Rizzo's entry is on the chopping block, the next desired entry will take his place in the field.

1ST Annual Senior One Pocket Classic

1ST Annual Senior One Pocket Classic

John Rizzo has definitely made his entry available to the next person wanting to play in the inaugural Senior Classic. He also mentioned there might be an additional person on the list from Houston who would be willing to give up their spot if necessary to accommodate a player coming from out of town.

So, there are now two possible spots that could be had simply calling John Rizzo at 281-813-3886 and asking for a spot.

If there are no more requests in the month remaining for a spot in the field, we will go forward with the full field of 24 players listed in post # 38

Last one was a true double elimination. Went two sets and got over around 7/8 PM. I need your pic for the flyer. Cell phone pic is OK, send to 530-391-8316

The Super Senior Classic started after the Calcutta on Friday, and had a field of 18 players. We played one match that night because of the late start time and travel time involved with some of the players coming in that day from great distances.

This event will have 24 players, however the Calcutta will be held on the evening of the 14th ( Thursday ) and will not in any way affect the playing of any matches. The plan in place is to have the players meeting sometime around 12:00 PM on Friday and then draw names for the bracket. That finished we should start the matches about 1:00 PM on Friday, and continue play throughout the day until 9:00 PM.

The 9:00 PM time will be the last match held Friday, so us old guys will have plenty of time to rest up before the action starts up again on Saturday at 11:00 AM. The Saturday matches will follow same plan as Friday with the last match scheduled no later than 9:00 PM.

This should put us in great shape for the finals on Sunday.

The tournament will be a true double elimination event, with the hot seat needing to lose a race to 4, then a race to 3 to decide the champion.

Alternate list started

Alternate list started

Walter Glass has replaced John Rizzo on the list of 24 players. (See post # 38)
Rizzo now becomes the 1st alternate. Of course if anyone is interested in playing this event, we still have a person willing to give up his spot in the line-up, and if that person gets replaced I'm positive Rizzo would step aside as 1st alternate should we have a withdrawal in the final days before kickoff. Just sayin....

Welcome aboard Walter, glad to have you join the fun.

See you in about a month.

This addition of Mr Glass is great. I wont say much but he is a tough tenacious competitor and his visits to HOB in Santa Monica has shown him to be a gentleman of the highest order.

You are right about Walter, I met him in the late 80's/early 90's and he is a good guy and a fierce competitor who plays all games. I know he has done well in the Rum Runner tournament in Vegas that starts this Friday. I know he won it at least once.

Wow.

Keeps getting better for spectators and worse if you're not already dead money... just sayin', it's gettin' better for poor ole LSJohn. :) (I wonder if I could have bought a VIP seat for less than $200.) :eek:

Please Lord, let me smoke that LeBlanc so he'll throw HIS cue in the river. (For anyone who doesn't know him... he's a bonafide PRICK... Jack Hines told me so.) :D
