I booked rooms at Sheraton Hotel - about a block away from Blue Grass Billiards - 6 nights for $530. Priceline.com


Just FYI this is the closest hotel. It’s called the Four Points Sheraton. 9461 Roosevelt Blvd Phila Pa 19114

Looks like good deals on Priceline.

Great location, thanks for your efforts Mitch. I have less than 4 months to get my game back in shape!

I was making plans to be there and today I got my invitation to my 50 year class reunion and guess what week-end it is. We have had a reunion every 5 years and I have not missed one. Hope to make the next tournament.

I’m in. I’ll be staying with family but not sure when I’ll get in. I doubt if it’ll be more than a day or two early...

Just added booking my flight. Coming into PHL at around 6:40PM Thursday night 6/6. Not sure if I would need a car or not...I know it's early but anyone else coming in around that time that could share a ride (or our host Mitch pick us all up LOL)?

I guess I'm commited :)

It looks like we are pretty much ready for a volunteer to collect entry fees and post a sign up list.

Also, we need to lock down goals for what rounds will by done by the end of Friday night, and then again by the end of Saturday night, so that we can finish at a reasonable hour on Sunday. I believe we have worked that out, but I for one need a refresher. I do know, some players will be freed up from tournament play Friday night -- and available for mixing and matching the rest of the weekend with a great group of guys!! :D:D

Is it down to down to 4 players for Sunday or 8?? And is it 24 or 16 by the end of Friday night??

After a million discussions to make those happy that do not attend the MOT’s, I vote for one simple change. Four players on Sunday. If that means playing until 4Am on Saturday night, start early Friday, play until 9. LETS GO! More opportunities for action Mr. Nwkirk.:heh:eek::cool:
As far as a long day playing. The DCC starts at 10Am and ends midnite. We can start a 9am and play until 8-9 pm Friday. Saturday start 9am until down to four.

I think to make sure we stay on schedule for a reasonable completion time on Sunday you will need to get to four players for the last day. That means completing two rounds on Friday and three rounds on Saturday, which leaves four (maybe five depending on whether we play a true dbl elimination) rounds for Sunday. Also means that 25% of the field is done Friday night, and 50% of the field is done after the first round Saturday morning.

I guess all those discussions regarding format were for naught. Instead of a Round Robin for Friday and Saturday, where 100% of the field plays at least 21 or maybe even 28 games guaranteed against seven others, we will boot half the field after as little as 9 games against three others.

C'es la vie, I guess. Reminds me of congress, lots of talk, no action.:rolleyes:
