I think they want to have a full bracket of 32 players next year John and I don't think it's going to be a problem filling it. We plan on seeking out sponsors for both the SS II later this year and for the 2nd Annual Seniors event next year. Once these events are well grounded and have established some notoriety it's seems very possible to me that a beer company ( perhaps Budweiser ) would like to add some $$$ to the prize pool. They have a huge advertising budget and are always looking for ways to further their product in the eyes of the drinking public.Great.
I hope David and John are already thinking about whether to have 32 or 48 next year.
With Poolactiontv.com providing the coverage and Jeremy Jones and Sylver Ochoa doing the blow by blow commentary, these tournaments should receive a broader base following and that always appeals to sponsors. We are going to give it a whirl anyway and if we do get sponsors on board it should certainly peak interest in player participation and increase the fan base.
Meanwhile, we are two weeks out and counting.
See ya soon
