The "Action Room" has always been at the top of the escalator nearest the main entrance of the main floor tournament area. Several 1 P org guys likely to be in there almost anytime (unless there's a new layout this year for some reason.)
Oh wow, there are different rooms?

The last time I went was about 15-16 years ago and it was at a different venue. All of the tables were in the same big open room.

Sine the move to Harrah's Casino there have been tables in one room downstairs -- the main arena -- and 5 rooms upstairs (one or two years a sixth, but not the last couple of years.)

room rates

room rates

Does anybody know if there is a trick to get room rates cheaper. The promo code doesn't seem to work and a double is 189.00

There is a package for 9/10 days that is cheaper and that is probably what he's talking about.

There are some rooms in New Albany a few miles away that are cheaper but then you need a car.

I just got my room. 135.00 a night. Had to call it in. The online registration wouldn't accept the discount code. This was for three nights. I've got a place to stay in Louisville at my nephews house for any extra nights before or after the one pocket as needed. :)

Hey, Cal. How the hell are you. When are you coming to Florida? I haven't gone to DCC since I retired. I used to work DCC in as a business trip and so it didn't cost me much of anything. Different story now. All the best.

I think a few round-robin partners games consisting of those of us that play around the same speed would be a lot of fun...friendly games, say $30 a man, maybe with light sharking/needling allowed...:eek:...:D...

For our group...it could consist of any 4 of the following: Ghost, John H. Frank, pilot Jim, Tom W. socal Jerry, and ?

- The One Holey Ghost

PS, And if Billy I. gets in, his team can give the opposing team 8-7...:)

this is from another thread
your post
Larry....I always strive to operate within a reality check - particularly when asked my opinion, or when teaching...that said...

The strategies, moving intricacies, vision, and decision making in playing high level One Pocket is the only place where I have expertise/rarefied knowledge...
in another post
you said you and tom were even ( the round robin partners game)
maybe you felt you really had the best of it with the members you picked
but with rarefied knowledge
seems to me you should have the nuts...:eek:
dont know what you mean by team work ????:confused:
